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...
Auto-Focus not accurate; slow; IQ ok but not worth the premium

Summary: I made my purchase after comparing reviews and specs with Canon and others in the same price range. I returned it due to AF problems--green AF indicator indicates focused subject but when reviewed on monitor the focus was usually the background. I tested it under different settings and scenes but same results or just plain inconsistent. Also, the camera is actually slow, shot-to-shot and when transitioning from camera to movie (or vice versa). Wasn't really impressed.
Summary: I was expecting great things from this camera, but I've been underwhelmed so far, the auto focus is so slow, I haven't been able to get anything close to a usable shot from anything thats moving. The USB & AV ports are very similar in size/shape and right next to each other, its easy to try and plug the cable into the wrong socket.
Excerpt: I have been trying out my Nikon P330 for a couple of weeks now. Sofar only in day light. Pics themselves look OK. going from my old 6MP to this 12MP seems to make a big difference. so far so good. But one of the strongest reason I but this rather than any other compact camera was the GPS. sadly is not working very well. last weekend it took almost an hour to get a fix whilst walking on a beach (sic!).
Summary: I'm a long-time user of my great Nikon D40 SLR - it's ancient, but just works. I wanted a more compact camera for when the SLR is too cumbersome - and picked out the P330 for its ability to shoot RAW and log the GPS location. What a disappointment. Although the picture quality is excellent, the camera fails totally on the main reasons I bought it. When shooting RAW it is painfully, glacially slow to record an image, before you can shoot another one.

Summary: The camera, within a couple of days, was having problems turning on. It could be rectified by taking out the battery and putting it back in but that is hardly great. From looking online it seems that this is a common flaw with this camera. After a couple of weeks it became even worse - at one point even doing the fix above didn't work, though after a day of leaving the battery out it finally turned on. Not recommended.
Summary: According to Nikon's preview , this camera has an awesome list of features, unfortunately they don't work synergistically. For example the lens is rated at f/1.8 but only at its widest angle of 24mm. I thought that Nikon had overcome slow start up time and shutter lag problems associated with compact digitals but I was wrong . The on/off button is fiddly and the shutter response is frustrating.
Summary: La qualità della macchina fotografica è fuori discussione, foto bellissime anche con poca luce... metto due stelle perché dopo averla utilizzata un paio di volte, inspiegabilmente si è oscurato lo schermo... Per fortuna il servizio di Amazon è impeccabile come sempre... anche dopo un mese dalla consegna ho potuto richiedere tranquillamente il reso. Penso che ordinerò di nuovo il prodotto, sperando questa volta in maggior fortuna!
Kompaktkameravergleich - Nikon kann nicht überzeugen
25 February 2014
Summary: Hallo zusammen, auf der Suche nach einer guten Kompaktkamera, die als „Immer-dabei-Knipse“ neben einer DSLR existieren sollte, bin ich auch auf die Nikon P330 aufmerksam geworden. Da es glücklicherweise schon einen Nachfolger gibt, ist der Preis auf ein angemessenes Nivea gesunken und ich habe sie mir einmal näher angeschaut.
Pros: Очень хорошие заявленные характеристики,красивый
Cons: Вообще фотик сплошное РАЗОЧАРОВАНИЕ ! Работает медленно ,особенно со вспышкой.На начальной точке зуммирования видны искажения фото,если чуть приблизить- то искажения пропадают. Затвор срабатывает с сильным замедлением,кадр получается не такой как надо.
