Reasons For

6 Reasons For
41% higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L330 is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 8.1MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (12.1MP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L330 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (2x). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

0.2 smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Nikon Coolpix L330 is 3.1 minimum aperture, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is a 3.3 minimum aperture digital camera (0.2 larger).
7% shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
Nikon Coolpix L330 is 22.5mm minimum focal length. That's 1.5mm shorter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (24mm).
370.00 battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L330 is a digital camera that takes 370.00 battery life (CIPA standard), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 only takes 300.00 battery life (CIPA standard). Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Better user reviews
Based on 245 user reviews, the average review score of the Nikon Coolpix L330 is 92%, but the average rating of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is 85% (based on 4 reviews).
8 Reasons For
4x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is a 30x optical zoom digital camera. That's 4x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L330 (30x). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

Smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is an 8 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 2.1 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L330 (8).
Longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is 720mm maximum focal length, but the Nikon Coolpix L330 is only a 585mm maximum focal length digital camera (135mm shorter).
Bigger internal memory Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is an 86MB internal memory digital camera. That's 43MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L330 (86MB).
Higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is 1,040,000 pixels display resolution. That's 580,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L330 (1,040,000 pixels).
HDMI Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 has an HDMI, but the Nikon Coolpix L330 does not have an HDMI. Read more

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

213g lighter Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 has a weight of 217g, but the Nikon Coolpix L330 is a 430g digital camera (213g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Considerably better expert reviews
The average expert review score of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is 83% based on 4 reviews, however the average rating of the Nikon Coolpix L330 is 64% (based on 8 reviews).
