As you can tell, each of these cameras provide different megapixel count and different sensor dimensions. The P330 because of its bigger sensor will make achieving shallow depth of field less difficult and the Panasonic FH22 will provide you with greater detail having its extra 2 Megapixels. Higher resolution can also let you crop pictures more aggressively. The more recent P330 will have a benefit when it comes to sensor innovation.
