Summary: The Nikon P330 point and shoot is my pocket camera of choice due to its combination of size and resolution. When used properly, it will produce DSLR quality results. See the attached portrait taken at a shutter speed of 1/160, an aperture of f/4, and an ISO of 160.
Summary: A very good camera. For picture quality, you do get what you pay for, and I am quite happy with what this camera can do. Small, compact. Yes, it eats batteries, but the third-party ones are inexpensive and they charge relatively quickly if you buy a cheap external charger. A bit slow to start when you first power up.
Summary: Excellent. see kenrockwell.com -- a bit slow to turn on, after being spoiled by D40 and even faster monsters. Not great for low-light. All around clumsier than DSLR like D40. However, the video is fan-freakin-tastic, and the stereo audio (from on-camera mic, of all things) is even better. Shockingly good video and audio. Puts everything as simple files; you plug into USB and move the files onto HD for editing, etc. Very nice overall.
Summary: I'v had it for a while now. Decided to put in my review. So far, I'v been very impressed with quality of photos especially in daylight. Night and indoor pictures can be tricky. Take some settings adjustments, but that is expected. Has limited flash range, and limited exposure for indoor pics. But is managable for portraits with still objects. Outdoor in daylight is really where it shines. Very equivalent results compared to my full Nikon SLR D5100.
Summary: Pro: small and takes pretty good picture. Con: Camera broke after nine months. We were in Hong Kong when the shutter could not open. The camera said "shutter error". We could not take any pictures. We went to Nikon Service Center in Hong Kong and was told that the warranty services did not extend outside of US. The cost of fixing the camera was estimated to be $155. Fortunately, we brought another camera with us for the trip.
Summary: Not wanting to lug my SLR around on a recent trip to Disney I opted to pick a Nikon P330 given the following features Larger than average sensor (BSI as well) GPS (I travel a lot and use maps to find photos fairly often) Fast lens (f1.8 at wide angle) The P330 seemed to roll-up all of the features I wanted, but implementation was a mixed bag Pros: Good image quality for a point & shoot (including lower light situations w/o flash) Pretty good movie quality (most of the...
Summary: I previously owned two Canon Powershot cameras, and I had absolutely zero problems with them over a 7 year period. I recently purchased a Nikon D5100, so decided to stick with Nikon for my next point and shoot. The P330 seemed to offer all the features I wanted, and the initial reviews seemed positive. The camera took nice pictures, but the body of the camera felt cheap since it was plastic, compared to the metal bodies of the Powershot cameras.
High sensitivity sensor and high quality pictures.

Summary: I have 41 years of experience in photography. Since 1977 I have been using only SLR cameras. Coolpix P330 is not an SLR camera; I bought it as a birthday present for my wife, who wanted to have a small camera that would easily fit in her purse. Obviously, and SLR camera would not fit in a purse. So after a careful choice I picked P330. My wife is quite happy with this camera, and so am I.
Summary: This is my first Nikon camera. I am very pleased. Very nice features and programs for a pocket camera. The software is very user friendly. The battery has enough power to last all day. On vacation recently I probably made 40-50 shots per day. It has a program for almost every lighting and action level that makes it really easy to just point and shoot. However you must accept that an auto focus has it's limitations in extreme situations.
