The New Nikon S Series – Coolpix S9300 Includes GPS – Finally, Affordable GPS For All!

Yes indeed, Nikon has rolled out a new S series of cameras and best of all, the Coolpix  S9300 Includes GPS – I recall testing a Kodak that sported integrated GPS back in 2000 if you can believe that, however, Kodak never did roll out that device to the masses.. too bad, perhaps if they had the company might not be going under!  Moving forward, I’ve been a photo buff for years, however, I’ve often wondered why all cameras don’t come equipped with built in GPS. There’s no doubt that the technology exists and with social sharing so prevalent, particularly social location, you’d have to think that integrated GPS is a no brainer.

Finally Nikon has delivered a product for Joe average that also includes built-in GPS – enter the S9300. From Nikon… S9300 also offers a built-in GPS function. A new movie function for saving and playing back movies, which allows for recording of multiple scenes that are then saved as a single file, has been adopted.
