If it's 200 shots for the battery life then how much video can it contain before the batter dies?

Is the S9300 worth the extra $100 over the s8200. I bought the S8200 but haven't opened it and am debating retruning it and going with the S9300.

¿Which one of the new 2012 travel zoom cameras of
Canon (SX 240 and SX 260), Nikon S9300) and Sony (HX20V) is better in photo
quality? ¿What about in video quality? Thanks.
