Nikon Coolpix P330

 

The Nikon Coolpix P330 pocket camera is capable of producing some truly outstanding images, but may be too slow for some shooters.

Very small for a 1/1.7-inch sensor camera. Sharp lens. Impressive images through ISO 1600. Raw shooting support. Wide aperture when zoomed out. Built-in GPS.

Sluggish performance. Extreme distortion at widest angle in Raw mode. In-camera battery charging. Finicky power button.

There's a built-in GPS, which isn't a common feature in digital cameras. It automatically adds your location to photos, so you can view them on a map in software like Lightroom, iPhoto, and Picasa. The GPS requires about 90 seconds to lock onto a...

Nikon Coolpix P330 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix P330 is a new pocket compact camera designed to appeal to the keen enthusiast photographer. The Nikon P330 has a 1/1.7-inch back-illuminated 12-megapixel CMOS sensor, 5x optical zoom with a focal range of 24-120mm, maximum apertures...

At first glance the new Nikon Coolpix P330 seems virtually identical to its predecessor, the P310, but 2013's version adds two features that serious photographers have been crying out for - better JPEG image quality at higher ISOs and, finally, RAW...

Nikon Coolpix P330

 

Nikon's answer to the Powershot-S falls short of greatness.

Canon can relax: their Powershot S has nothing to worry from Nikon's P330. Despite its promising specs, the P330 just doesn't come together in a way that makes a lot of sense. In other reviews, we've made a big deal of the way smartphones have all but...

On paper the Nikon Coolpix P330 is an impressive pocket camera. It's got a 12-megapixel image sensor with a 1/1.7-inch design, larger in surface area than those in other compacts in this price range. Unfortunately, the P330 is a noticeably slow...

Nikon Coolpix P330 Review

 

A biggish 15mm CMOS sensor, moderate pixel count plus a fast f1.8 lens leads to a surprisingly high performance in such a moderately-priced camera.

Can the Nikon P330 match the LF1 and rivals in the premium compact market?

Impressive noise control at higher ISO settings, Good value comapred to rivals, Good LCD screen, Small aperture at tele end of the focal range

Slow shot-to-shot speed in Raw capture, No built-in Wi-Fi

Nikon Coolpix P330

 

Nikon's putting a lot into the Coolpix range of late. The P330 model, which updates the previous P310, isn't a gentle nudge forward in the company's "performance" range, it's a far bigger step up thanks to the P330's inclusion of a larger 1/1.7-inch...

Close-up macro mode, raw capture available, small body size, fair price point, decent build quality, f/1.8 aperture at wide-angle setting, versatile 24-120mm (f/1.8-5.6) equivalent lens, improvements compared to predecessor

Autofocus not always accurate, menu lag, file write time and camera lock-out while buffer clears, no touchscreen, no quick access menu, no manual focus ring

The Nikon Coolpix P330 is a definite step forward compared to its predecessor, and it throws the P-series into the high-end compact camera mix. But it's also a game of two halves.

Does Nikon's premium pocketable compact cut the mustard?
