Display

Average Display Diagonal

At 3 inches, the Nikon 320 has a relatively standard display diagonal compared to most of the other cameras that have been available for more than two years.

We compared this camera to all the other 3" screen cameras and we think the Olympus PEN E-PM2 (£392.85) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Cameras with a larger display diagonal that might be worth considering include the D4 (£4,225) (3.2" and higher rated), or the D4S (£3,379.99) (3.2" and higher rated) both from Nikon or the Leica T (£820.67) (3.7" and higher rated).

Across all the digital cameras of a similar spec and age to this camera the display resolutions (numeric) range from 230 pixels to 1,300,000 pixels.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Nikon 320 does not support Full HD video, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec digital cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to this camera also do not support Full HD video.

We think you might also be interested in alternative cameras which also support Full HD video including the Samsung WB250, or the Leica X Vario.

What is Full HD video? Less Chart Hide Chart Edit

1280 X 720 Pixels Video Resolution

The Nikon 320 supports a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. That's over three times the video resolution of the most common video resolutions of 640 x 480 pixels (which is also supported by this Nikon camera). A video resolution of 1280 x 720 is classified as HD and TVs supporting this resolution are referred to as "HD Ready". However the resolution is not as detailed as Full HD (1920 x 1080). The video resolution of all cameras that are a similar age to this digital camera ranges from 320 x 120 pixels (worst) to 1920 x 1080 pixels (best).

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 26 times zoom factor, the Nikon 320 has a quite big optical zoom compared to most of the other similar spec digital cameras that have been around for a comparable time to this camera.

Cameras with a bigger optical zoom that might be worth looking at include the L820 (£143.99) (30x and higher rated), or the Coolpix S9700 (£282.13) (30x and higher rated) both from Nikon or the Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR (£317) (30x and higher rated).
