The name has over time become a name known to every photographer and has been releasing newer cameras into the market giving even greater features and functions in the process. This however poses a challenge in knowing what product suits you and hence this piece comparing the Nikon P530 vs D3300.


Nikon P530
The Nikon P530 is a great 16mp 2014 release model camera. The camera is considered special mainly owing to its 7 fps continuous shooting capability with 1080 screen resolution that gives clarity to your pictures. With 120 fps high speed video, ISO 100 -12800 and electronic viewfinder, this camera guarantees great pictures to go with the photographers pictorial passion unlike any before.

Nikon D3300
The Nikon D3300 is on the other hand a well equipped competitor to the Nikon P530. Though released on the same year, the camera has a greater 24mp camera, 1080 video resolution and ISO 100-25600. The camera has a different specs pool with an optical viewfinder in place of the P530’s electronic viewfinder and a relatively lower 5fps continuous shooting capability which is a little disappointing.
