As well as being compared against other pro digicams and compacts, the Nikon Coolpix P330 is also often compared to travel zooms and mirrorless. The Nikon Coolpix P330's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the Coolpix P340 and the 1 V1) and Canon (such as the PowerShot SX240 HS and the PowerShot SX280 HS)

compared toPro digicam competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Nikon P330 compared to other pro digicam competitors include: it has a slightly wider wide angle lens (24 mm vs 28 mm), is newer (march 2013 vs september 2012), has a built-in GPS, has a faster max shutter speed (1/4000 of a second vs 1/2000 of a second) and significantly longer exposures (60 seconds vs 15 seconds).

However, on average it slightly lower maximum light sensitivity (3,200 ISO vs 12,800 ISO), doesn't have a touch screen, doesn't have a screen which flips out, has a significantly shorter battery life (200 shots vs 340 shots) and doesn't support an external flash.
