Summary: 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 it's still a useful little tool to carry around...
Pros: Small size, Manual controls, Useful Wi-Fi
Cons: Can struggle in bright light, Some buttons feel too stiff
Summary: Nikon’s Coolpix straddles the entry level and semi-pro spaces with inbuilt RAW capability and a decent f/1.8 12.2MP shooting capability. The Nikon Coolpix P340 sits in an interesting space in the current camera market.
Nikon Coolpix P340 review: An advanced point and shoot wooing the street photographer
18 June 2014
Summary: Nikon Coolpix P340 offers impressive performance in still images. It is an ideal camera for those looking at a pocket camera for street shooting and want complete manual control. The dials on the camera help in quickly changing settings. Although we would have loved to see an extra function button.
Conclusion: 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. It's a camera building from already solid foundations.
Pros: Close-up macro mode, raw capture, fair price, versatile lens, faster autofocus and improvements compared to predecessor, password-free Wi-Fi option
Cons: 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
Conclusion: Wir hätten nicht gedacht, dass in der Nikon Coolpix P340 eine solche Videoqualität steckt. Dazu ist die Ausstattung der Kamera für 300 Euro gemessen an typischen Camcordern enorm: ND-Filter , Stabilisator, sehr scharfes Display, frei belegbare Funktionstaste, Objektivring, konfigurierbare...
