3 Other reasons to consider the Nikon Coolpix L330

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Nikon released the Coolpix L330.

Average Screen Size

The Coolpix L330 has a pretty average screen size (3 inches) compared to most of the other cameras of this type and age.

We compared all the other 3" screen cameras to this digital camera and we think the Kodak Pixpro FZ151[plb_2596074_price], the Sigma DP1 Merrill[plb_1794258_price], and the Nikon Coolpix P7700[plb_1714924_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this compact camera camera screen size is too small for you then you might also want to consider the GC100[pl_2600424_price] (4.8"), or the Galaxy Camera 2[pl_2711451_price] (4.8") both from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

Average Digital Zoom

At 4 times zoom factor, the Nikon Coolpix L330 has a pretty standard digital zoom compared to most of the other cameras that have been available for more than two years.

If you would prefer a bigger digital zoom then you might also want to look at the Pixpro FZ151[pl_2596074_price] (6x), or the Pixpro FZ41[pl_3227932_price] (6x) both from Kodak or the Fujifilm FinePix JV500[plb_2602086_price] (6.3x) which is also higher rated.
