Nikon’s S3300 is an affordable digital camera and it is an alternative for the rest of the cameras in the Coolpix line-up. The camera debuted in the month of February and it replaces S3100. S3300 received upgrades in terms of megapixel count, optical zoom, and image stabilization. Front panel in the camera is slippery and smooth. Overall balance of the camera is fine and it is lighter in weight.
Buttons present on rear panel are pretty small and are of mediocre quality. Legibility will be a problem and labels are etched into buttons and are not colored. The overall layout is simply fair. Shutter release button in the camera is not that bad and it actually boasts very decent stroke and has got good tactile feedback.
The zoom lever in the camera protrudes adequately from the buttons. Without any optical or electronic viewfinder, framing method is with LCD monitor present on rear panel. It has very cheap display and has narrow view angle. Previews of this particular camera are not that great and brightness in the camera is an issue. It has very cheap lens. Pincushion and barrel distortions can be corrected in the software before the image comes out. It also results in strong distortion.
