The take anywhere camera, guaranteed not to dissappoint As an avid Nikon DSLR photographer, I was looking for a Camera that I could take anywhere without carrying all the bulk, but gives great results and flexability with manual controls and Raw imaging . Look no further ! Go get it. I did and love it to death. This feels good looks good acts good. Nothing bad to say about this purchase. Well worth it over the other point and shoots(pocketable sizes) with the Brand name starting with "C". Just amazing nothing else need be said May 16, 2013
Camera robusta para vários ambientes. Uso em situações domésticas, na intempérie e em obras de engenharia. Estou falando da P300 que é um modelo anterior a P330. Esta última oferece alguns recursos a mais. Essa camera nunca apresentou um defeito e em cada situação adversa ela acaba surpreendendo. Uma única ressalva. O material da tela anterior poderia ser de um material mais resistente. Tenho um iPhone, com a mesma idade da P300 e a tela dele parece nova, quando comparada à da camera. Em condições de pouco luminosidade ela é uma das melhores. Na sua categoria é a que mais satisfação proporcionou. May 6, 2013
GPS Disappointing I purchased this camera primary for the GPS function packaged in a pocket sized format for travel photos. Unfortunately, the GPS position acquisition time is so long, or not at all (even with valid A-GPS file loaded), that the feature is unusable for normal point and shoot use. I had recently taken the camera on a pleasure trip to Chicago and was unable to obtain a GPS fix in Millennium Park (unobstructed satellite views) even with the camera turned on for over 10 minutes. Out of the 100+ photos taken on the trip (indoors & outdoors), only one photo was geotagged; completely unacceptable. As for the photo capturing abilities, the P330 does a great job in low light and in general walking about snapshots. Auto white balance under fluorescent lighting has a green tint, but is fixable with manual menu adjustments. Overall, a very competent camera packaged in an attractive size. If the GPS worked this camera would get a 4-5 star rating. January 9, 2014
Slow to lock on focus in anything but good light. Good IQ , excellent quality build, excellent movie mode . The two big complaints are: 1.......... slow to focus in typical indoor room lighting in the evening . 2..........slow processing of raw images in camera . September 16, 2013

Answer: 
I am gus who asked the question, and it was the user's manual instruction with which I had some difficulty to understand the function. In the meanwhile, I have figured it out, there are two ways to get the focus fine tuned: as indicated, in the P,S,A,M.U, sports and special effects scene mode; press the multi selector cursor down and select Manual Focus.
Use the multi selector to adjust the focus until you are satisfied.
Press the OK button. The focus adjustment you have just made is now locked in.
Now press the shutter release button to take your picture.
The second method uses "AutoFocus" to make the fine adjustment as follows;
As before press the multiselector down and select Manual Focus
Now, press the multiselector to the right
This will get you a screen that you have to confirm if you want the camera to use Auto Focus to do the fine focus adjustment. Select Yes and press the OK button and hold it in until the camera made the focus adjustment, you'll see the camera hunting for a focus spot in the center of the focus area.
Now you can push the shutter release button and take your photo.
And there you have it.

Answer: 
The Multi Selector can be pushed Up,Down Left, Right and can also be rotated using your thumb.
Manual focus can only be selected in P, S, A, M, U, Sports, or special scene modes. MF cannot be selected in Auto. (Green camera Icon on the camera mode dial)

(1)To use manual focus while in one of shooting modes stated above, press the multi selector down, then scroll down and highlight MF (manual focus), and press OK.

(3) Rotate the the multi selector using your thumb to adjust focus.

Refer to the table of contents, then Page 2 of the 'Reference Section' of your user manual in the link below. The reference section of the manual is close to the Index.

Some previous Coolpix models had a removable ring around the lens. Once taken off it revealed threads use to attached auxiliary adapters (e.g., UR-E21 adapter). Does the P330 have this feature?

What is the maximum speed at which the Nikon P330 may write to the SD card? In other words, beyond what SD card speed does any additional SD card speed capability not get used by the P330? Are some available SD card speeds (e.g. 200x, 400x, 600x, 30MB/s, 45MB/s, 95MB/s, etc.) beyond the P330's capacity to fully utilize? Is there an "optimum speed" SD card that P330 owners should use in the P330? Thanks.

Answer: 
I don't know whether Nikon tests for this. In my opinion since the P330 can shoot 10 frames per second it would benefit from a SD card rated at UHS-1 (95mbps). If you intend on shooting raw ir would definitely benefit from that speed. I would not use anything less than a Class 10.

Some cameras are described as having built-in GPS. All you get is a little blue line on a background that shows your track that day.

I want a camera that prints the LAT/LONG on the individual photo, or that creates a digital tag to each photo that viewers can use to link to mapquest and other online maps, to show the general location of the location where the photo was taken.
