For
  • Produces some of the clearest images at high ISOs that we've seen from a compact camera
  • Images show vivid colours and smooth tonal gradations
  • The P300's fast-aperture f/1.8 lens
  • Close 3cm focusing distance in macro mode
Against
  • Macro settings deactivate when switching scene mode, filter option or into/out of Auto
  • In auto and a handful of scene modes it favours the highlights and shows a small leniency to underexposing
