Nikon Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

Nikon compact cameras have good ratings on average and across all cameras Nikon is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Quite Large Display Diagonal

The display diagonals of cameras of this age and type range from 1" to 4.8". With a display diagonal of 3 inches, the Nikon 9300 has one of the larger display diagonals amongst similar spec cameras of this age.

If this Nikon digital camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Samsung GC100[plb_2600424_price] (4.8" and higher rated).
