Nikon Coolpix P340

 

The Nikon Coolpix P340 compact camera captures images with excellent detail and shoots Raw, but performance issues hold it back.

Sharp, wide-aperture lens. Low-noise, high-ISO images. Raw shooting support. Excellent control layout. Sharp rear display. In-lens ND filter. Very small for a 1/1.7-inch sensor camera. 10.4fps burst shooting. 1080i60 video capture.

Slow to recover after bursts. Noticeable distortion in Raw format. Finicky Power button. In-camera battery charging. Inconsistent Wi-Fi performance.

Wireless Mobile Utility also works as a remote viewfinder. A Live View is beamed to your iOS or Android device, but it too suffers from speed issues. The feed is very choppy, to the point where I fired the shutter as a coworker was walking by the lens...

Nikon Coolpix P340

 

Nikon's Coolpix P340 is a powerful compact camera with a lot of impressive features. The 12.2-megapixels BSI CMOS image sensor can record 1080/60i HD Videos, which is certainly nice, but it's the lens and manual controls that have my attention. The 5x...

Nikon Coolpix P340 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix P340 is a new pocket compact camera designed to appeal to the keen enthusiast photographer. The Nikon P340 has a 1/1.7-inch back-illuminated 12-megapixel CMOS sensor, 5x optical zoom with a focal range of 24-120mm, maximum apertures...

The new Nikon Coolpix P340 is a rather modest upgrade of last year's P330 model, principally adding built-in wi-fi connectivity, faster auto-focusing, a lens control ring, and longer shutter speeds for night photography. It still suffers from poor...

Nikon P340 Review

 

Last year, Nikon launched the Coolpix P330, an enthusiast compact camera that cleverly took one step back to go two steps forward. By reducing the resolution of its already larger-than-average image sensor, the Coolpix P330 aimed to boost image...

Available from March 2014, the Nikon Coolpix P340 ships in just one enthusiast-friendly body color: black. List pricing is set at around US$380, exactly the same point at which its predecessor first shipped.

Nikon Coolpix P340 review: Full In-Depth Hands-on

 

The Nikon Coolpix P340 is the latest installment from Nikon in their performance series of cameras. The camera is all about performance: the best in image quality, viewing angles and it has a 1/1.7 inch sensor which is a huge sensor. Have a closer look...

The best part about the camera is its very fast lens which gives amazing low light quality. Shooting at 5X zoom is pretty slow but decent. The camera has a decent build and is tiny in size. It looks very simple and straightforward. But we did feel that...

Budget options aren't always that great. The Nikon Coolpix P340 is a few hundred dollars cheaper than many advanced compacts, yet offers some pretty speedy performance.

Nikon Coolpix P340

 

A small camera to keep handy when you need more capabilities than your smartphone can provide

Small size ; Manual controls ; Useful Wi-Fi

Can struggle in bright light ; Some buttons feel too stiff

Nikon's small, pocketable Coolpix P340 can be used as a point-and-shoot camera, but it also allows you to take control of the exposure and get creative. It has limitations with regards to shooting on overly bright days, and also in overly dim ones, but...

Nikon Coolpix P340 review

 

When it comes to high-end compact cameras there are lots of options out there. Most of those, however, happen to cost a pretty penny. Although the Nikon Coolpix P340 couldn't be called "budget" it does undercut many of its competitors on the price...

Close-up macro mode, raw capture, fair price, versatile lens, faster autofocus and improvements compared to predecessor, password-free Wi-Fi option

Autofocus accuracy, still slow menus, no quick access menu, rear thumbwheel seems a bit pointless, no touchscreen, Wi-Fi app is simplistic and could be improved

Despite it only adding Wi-Fi and a handful of speed and software improvements compared to its 2013 predecessor the Coolpix P340 adds up to a more rounded experience than before.
