S8200 has the same slow and fastmotion recording parameters as the P300.

The ranking of a particular camera should be displayed in its respective category. I've noticed for atleast a week now, that both cameras get ranked in the category of the better camera!!! :@ This is simply unacceptable. If someone wants to compare a Travel Zoom and a Compact, the only points of comparison should be the features, pros, cons and the score. THE RANKING SHOULD BE DONE BASED ON EACH CAMERA'S CATEGORY. If a camera falls in multiple categories, its ranking must be displayed in each of these.

How come the S8200 not outweigh the P300 on the zoom function alone? People who evaluate the score, Hello? Any points for amazing sharpness on 100%  14x zoom?
