The Nikon Coolpix S5300 looks to be a solid budget shooter, thanks to the 16 megapixel 1/2.3" sensor. This small compact still had room for wi-fi, and with in-camera image editing, users can quickly upload their images via a smartphone or tablet. The 7 fps burst mode is pretty decent for the price too. If you can swing another $50, the S6800 has a better lens with a 12x zoom and faster burst shooting, but with the same size sensor, there won't be much difference in image quality.
