Colours from the Nikon P330 are represented well, even when in difficult lighting conditions. Here the automatic white balance has done a good job of dealing with a mixed lighting condition (artificial and daylight).

The Nikon Coolpix P330 can struggle with image stabilisation in lower light conditions, so you might need to consider pushing the sensitivity up, or investing in a tripod.

Matrix metering generally does a good job in most conditions. In this shot, we can see that the Nikon P330 has performed well even with a subject with quite strong contrast. Colours have also been presented nicely.

Monochrome shooting is available under Picture Styles. You can also customise the option, for instance by increasing the contrast such as in this shot.

Sepia is the third type of monochrome setting available in Picture Styles. Unlike Nikon DSLRs and CSCs, there are fewer creative options to choose from in Picture Styles. They are, however, all available to shoot in raw format, which is handy if you decide you'd prefer an "unedited" image later down the line.

Macro focusing enables you to get very close to the subject to capture frame-filling and detail-rich subjects. Depth of field has been restricted in this image by using an f/1.8 aperture. Focus drop-off and bokeh is attractive.

The Nikon P330 is equipped with a 5x optical zoom. The widest angle of the lens is equivalent to 24mm in 35mm terms and allows for a broad angle of view to be captured.

At the telephoto end of the zoom, the equivalent focal length is 120mm, which is reasonably flexible for a premium compact camera. Image stabilisation at the far end of the zoom is good, especially in good light.
