Nikon Coolpix P330 Reviews

Engadget reviews the Nikon Coolpix P330 and writes;
“Overall, the P330 is a solid entrant to Nikon’s midrange lineup, but at $380, it’s a fairly significant investment, too.”
rating: N/A

Techradar reviews the Nikon Coolpix P330 and writes;
“Images are crisp, sharp and display a fantastic amount of colour and lots of detail. When the light is good, you have the potential to capture some really beautiful photographs, making it excellent as a device to always have on you. The f/1.8 aperture lens also goes some way towards helping with that.”
rating: N/A

Pocket-lint reviews the Nikon Coolpix P330 and writes;
“Another feature which is impossible to overlook is the P330′s bright aperture range. At f/1.8 at the widest-angle there’s plenty of scope for sumptuous, blurred-background shots. This dips down to f/5.6 when the lens is fully extended, which is to be expected at this size and cost.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET reviews the Nikon Coolpix P330 and writes;
“Video quality from the P330 is good, with a crisp image and smooth movement when shooting in 1080p. The internal stereo microphones do produced slightly muted sound, even though they are located on the top panel of the camera.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Ephotozine reviews the Nikon Coolpix P330 and writes;
“The relatively low price for this camera, which is likely to drop over time makes this camera an appealing option, particularly as it’s capable of delivering good image quality and low noise in a compact package.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Photographyblog reviews the Nikon Coolpix P330 and writes;
“The P330′s larger and more sensible 12 megapixel /1.7-inch back-illuminated image sensor produces noise-free images at ISO 100-400, with noise first apparent at ISO 800.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Ephotozine reviews the Nikon Coolpix P330 and writes;
“Full HD video features stereo sound, with optical zoom and autofocus is available, as well as a 120fps high speed video mode. Power is provided by a compact 1050mAh lithium-ion battery, that slots into the bottom battery and memory card compartment. ISO can be selected from ISO80 to ISO12800, when extended.”
rating: N/A

Imaging-resource reviews the Nikon Coolpix P330 and writes;
“The Nikon P330 proves it’s serious by providing full PASM controls with a physical dial topside to give more advanced or learning photographers greater flexibility over their shooting, as well as an fn button on the front of the camera to custom assign a commonly used setting or mode.”
rating: N/A

CNET reviews the Nikon Coolpix P330 and writes;
“The P330′s lens starts out with a fast aperture but I’m betting it hits f5.6 pretty quickly, which would be frustrating. That said, it’s coming in at an interestingly aggressive price, which looks like the tradeoff for the slow lens.”
