  • Pros: Affordable price compared to other advanced compact camera, Good build quality, Fast, f/1.8 lens (but only a wide angle), PASM shooting modes, Effective optical image stabilization, Good image quality at low ISOs, Generally responsive performance, Continuous shooting up to 7fps (but only for 5 fr...
  • Cons: No RAW option, Small sensor means it doesn't offer the image quality increase of other advanced compacts, Flash unusable for closest macro capabilities (0.8 inches/2cm) due to overexposure and shadow cast by lens, Image quality drops off above ISO 400, noise levels very high by ISO 3200, Noise re...

Nikon Coolpix P310 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
3 June 2012
  • Conclusion: In conclusion, it’s fair to say the Coolpix P310 is quite an unassuming little unit: its compact body and understated design initially deny its true capabilities and certainly while the benefit of a bright f1.8 lens may not initially reveal itself to many users in theory alone, they will certainly...

3 April 2014
  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix P310 is a good compact camera, but it does have a few issues. The purple fringing is of most concern, and while the inability to shoot raw isn't an issue in itself, its presence would allow greater control of noise.

Nikon Coolpix P310

Pocket Lint
30 May 2012
  • Conclusion: We weren’t really sure we’d like the P310 that much: it’s a tad confused in this market space as it doesn’t challenge the larger-sensor advanced compacts of its competitors. But taken in isolation and given its reasonable price bracket the P310 is one cool, quirky (in a good way) little camera.
  • Pros: Decent AF with lots of options including user-defined point, detailed images, close-up macro mode, lots of movie capture control
  • Cons: No raw capture, standard compact sensor size, image quality behind the larger-sensor competition
