Congrats on winning! I love the shot.

Back to your regularly scheduled irony....

May want to get a waterproof case for that S9300 if you plan to photograph any more bears in the rain!  :P

Great shot. Congratz on winning.

Since you have that nice new Nikon and that junk Canon (I read the forums, I know the DxO scores) if you just don't want that Canon anymore send me a PM and I will take it off your hands. ;-)

Congratulations. Keep the Coolpix in the car.   You wont be without a camera while you travel.

Thanks to everyone for the positive comments  - I was expecting some stick. :-)

Here's the link to the competition. For those not from UK the Telegraph is one of the bigger serious papers.

Ha, it lists your location as Shillingford Devon, that's the Shillingford out near Bampton and not Shillingford St George near Exeter I take it? I live in Exeter, not a million miles away!

For one thing the title is very misleading.  If a Nikon P&S is going to make a person give up their 1DX for it then there's something seriously wrong here, lol.  It would be different if the person stated the camera was a bit much for them and decided to go with a P&S.

Thanks -  and yes you have got it I won't be changing. Not that I have anything against Nikon, the man next to me had a Nikon (well 2x D4 and a D600) and he got some good shots as well.

But I will be happily using the Nikon as a point and shoot.

If Nikons are so good then why does Andy Rouse have to beg/borrow Canon cameras and lenses to do his job? Simple his D800 and D4 are not reliable and Nikon cannot make them so. Only one example but food for thought! I think he is regretting moving away from Canon, except of course for the Nikon 200-400 F4 - Canon get a move on and don'y put a stupid price on it!

Heh, 'sunny' around these parts has been a bit of a sore subject this year! (with the greatest of respect to those affected by the recent hurricane in the US)

someone, please give me the 3 minutes back i spent on this thread --  :-\
I quite enjoyed it. I'd never thought about it before it in those terms before but won a few $50 event tickets in a newspaper photo competition a while back so I'm a prize-winning photographer as well ;).

Anyway nice shot and enjoy your Coolpix, it should be much more agile than the 1DX and let you take some even more awesome shots. I've never been fortunate enough to hold one but imagine for wildlife in particular the lower shutter noise should allow you to get much closer.
