... for my graphic design student g/f who very much liked her earlier Nikon P300
14 February 2015
Summary: Bought this for my graphic design student g/f who very much liked her earlier Nikon P300. I own a Ricoh GR and I appreciate the more robust construction, richer sensor, higher ISOs, longer exposure time and fine-grained control that I can achieve with that quasi-DSLR camera.
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.
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.
Summary: Worst camera I have ever purchased. Bought it 1 month prior to the trip of a lifetime-125 mile trek in the Himalayan mountains of Bhutan. Tried it out about 5 times before we left. About 2 days into the trip it started to malfunction.
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.
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.
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...
