Nikon Coolpix L340 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a new bridge camera which features a 28x optical zoom, which gives you an equivalent of 22.5-630mm in 35mm terms. There's also a 56x Dynamic Fine Zoom available, which is a type of digital zoom. Inside the L340 is a 20.4...

The Nikon Coolpix L340's most appealing feature is its 28x optical zoom, and possibly its low, bargain price. For under £120 you get a camera which is capable of taking some good shots, but it relies heavily on you only taking those shots in bright light.

Nikon Coolpix L340 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Nikon Coolpix L340 is Nikon's latest budget superzoom, packing a 27x zoom that gives you everything from a nice wide-angle for group shots to a zoomed-in telephoto for details or wildlife shots. Unsurprisingly, it's a fairly large and hefty camera,...

Nikon Coolpix L340 Review

 

Ben Andrews reviews the 20 megapixel Nikon Coolpix L340 - a budget bridge camera with a 28x optical zoom lens.

Easy to use ; Relatively compact in class ; Ergonomic design ; Smart Portrait feature ; Inexpensive

Almost identical to L330 ; Image quality average at best ; No 1080p video ; Extra expense of AA batteries ; Few features

The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a predictably minor upgrade over last year’s L330 , with the only improvement being a bump in zoom range from 26x to 28x. A few years ago this would have been big news, but given many pocketable compact cameras are now capable...

fab little starter camera

 

This is a perfect camera for anyone wanting to start out taking photos it's a good big screen and quality picture. Lens cap and strap included but a shame they couldn't include a cheap carry case with it.

Great starting point

 

This camera is a no-frills, easy way to start taking photography beyond the 'holiday snaps' phase. An entry level bridge camera, this comes from the ever-reliable Nikon stable and has the build quality and reliability that you would expect. Boasting an...

Brilliant little camera - would recomend

 

Great purchase. All you need for a small digital camera, looks a lot more than the price paid. Excellent value for money Also, I ordered it on-line at 12.30 on Sunday and it was delivered at 15.30 on the SAME day

No good!

 

Macro and close up shots very poor, my old fujifilm 6mp camera puts this to shame!

Consumer review (argos.co.uk)

I love this camera

 

This is a great bridge camera at a good price. I'm not keen on small compacts and this feels like a proper camera. There are lots of features on it but it is light and really easy to use. I've just returned from a holiday and my photos are stunning....
