It was December 2013 when this camera was released.


Display

Quite Small Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of only 2.7 inches, the Nikon S3300 has one of the smaller display diagonals amongst similar spec digital cameras of this age. The display diagonals of digital cameras of a similar age and spec to this camera range from 2" to 4.8", and the average display diagonal is 2.9".

Other 2.7" screen digital cameras currently available which you might want to consider include because of its better review score, the GE X5 (£55).

If you want a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the FinePix x100 Classic Kit (2.8" and higher rated), or the X-E1 (£435.10) (2.9" and higher rated) both from Fujifilm or the Canon G1 X (£479.99) (2.8" and higher rated).

Video

Does Not Support Full HD Video

Like most of the other cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to this camera, the Nikon S3300 does not support Full HD video.

It is worth considering alternative digital cameras which also support Full HD video including the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the DSC-WX80 both from Sony or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60.

What is Full HD video? Less Chart Hide Chart Edit

1280 X 720 Pixels Video Resolution

The highest video resolution supported by the Nikon S3300 is 1280 x 720 pixels. That's over three times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels digital camera, which is the most common video resolution supported by digital cameras of this age and spec. 640 x 480 pixels is also supported by this Nikon digital camera. This camera also supports a video resolutions of 320 x 240 pixels. 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). Across all medium megapixel cameras that were released around the same time as this digital camera the worst video resolution is 320 x 120 pixels and the best is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Has a Built-In Flash

The Nikon S3300 has a built-in flash. Most of the other digital cameras that came out more than two years ago also have a built-in flash.

We compared all the other digital cameras with a built-in flash to this camera and we think the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, the SeaLife DC1400 Pro Duo, and the GE A1455 which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

Average Digital Zoom

At 4 times zoom factor, the Nikon S3300 has a fairly average digital zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel cameras that came out more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 4x digital zoom digital cameras to this digital camera and we think because of their better review scores, the L120, and the S9300 (£229.18) both from Nikon are also worth considering.

If this Nikon camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the Samsung WB800F (5x and higher rated), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 (£242.99) (5x and higher rated).
