Great camera for traveling
I also own a Nikon D80 SLR but the P300 is my walking around camera because it is so much easier to carry, fits in a shirt pocket and still takes excellent photos. I never use the flash because the lens is sufficiently fast. It also has very good battery life. I've had it for several years and have even taken it backpacking for a week in the Grand Canyon, where size and weight were critical. I've also used it to record videos of my bluegrass band for YouTube and it did a great job.

Amazing features- small package
I went online and typed in pocket sized camera, full manual contol with fast lens, and the P-300 came up. As I continued to read all the other features this camera had I was amazed. Finally, a pocket sized camera that someone who really wanted control over the image, and not just accept what the auto mode gave you, was available. When I read the tech specs, I saw that it had as many, if not more features than my full sized D90. And a 1.8 lens for low light? Great camera. I bring it everywhere with me.

Best camera for a beginner/amateur like me.
Although the megapixel and optical zoom is low when compared with the same price range
but its image quality is very great
Used it for light painting and exposure photos, great quality too!
Having fun exploring it

I am pretty happy with my camera. This is a compact camera, easy to carry everywhere, particularly for long trips. Manual setting are great for a small camera. I would totally recommend it!
