Nikon CoolPix P340 Point & Shoot Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Nikon Coolpix P340 comes as an update to the P330 and its lens has a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24mm at wide-angle to 120mm-equivalent telephoto end. The maximum aperture is bright enough at f/1.8 at wide-angle but dims down to f/5.6 when we reach at the telephoto end. The aperture diaphragm has seven blades and the optical formula for the lens has seven elements within six groups. The image stabilization comes in lens-shift VR manner to fight camera shake. The autofocus feature is based on contrast-detection, and the focus area selection consists of face priority, target finding and subject tracking. The minimum focusing distance is 2cm at wide-angle position that means, your macro shots can be impressive enough, if shot with care. At the back of the lens, there is a 1/1.7-inch sized 12.2 megapixels backside illuminated CMOS image sensor.

The burst mode speed in Nikon Coolpix P340 is of 10 frame rates per second and the ISO sensitivities begin from a nimble ISO 80 and hit 3200 normally. Coming to its extension, it can be extended to as high as ISO 6400 when in aperture priority, shutter priority, program or manual modes. When you switch to monochrome in high ISO mode, you can have even an extended ISO setting up to 12800. Videos can be recorded in full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The frame rates at work are 30 or 60fps and videos can also be recorded at reduced rates of 15 or 12.5fps to have a rapid playback. Also, you can turn to 640 x 480 pixel resolution should you wish more numbers on your frame rate. Therefore, with VGA resolution, you have 120fps and enjoy slow mo playback too. The videos are compressed in MP4/H.264 format and the audio comes in LPCM stereo.

The camera, Nikon Coolpix P340 draws its power from the EN-EL12 Li-ion rechargeable battery pack wherein, with one full charge you can produce 220 shots. The battery gets supplied with terminal cover and an AC adapter. The connectivity options are of USB 2.0 for high speed data. Also, PAL/NTSC standard definition composite video can be seen on TV with proper connection and Type-D micro HDMi high-def video can be watched on your HDTV vid HDMi cable. All your work gets stored on SD/SDXC/SDHC memory cards. The camera also comes with 56MB of inbuilt storage and a dynamic fine zoom - digital zoom made even smarter. The camera comes with the ability to shoot RAW files, which are in fact, a good alternative to compressed JPEGs. You can choose the modes like spot metering, matrix and center-weighted. Exposure compensation can be settled in 1/3EV steps and you can select exposure bracketing too.

As far as white balance is concerned, eight white balance modes including preset mode can be chosen. The shutter speeds range from 60 to 1/4,000 seconds. There is no provision to add flash, for there is an inbuilt pop flash with 21 feet range at wide-angle position and over eight feet at telephoto position, while using auto ISO. You get to frame your shots for images and movies via fixed LCD and there is no optical or electronic viewfinder. There is an anti-reflective coating to the 3 inches wide TFT LCD screen, which has a high resolution of 921k dots. Nikon Coolpix P340, though aimed at beginners and amateurs, you can find 19 hand held scene modes too including the scene auto selector function that helps you pick the best scene type. Also, an inbuilt GPS receiver works in favour to Wi-Fi.

As stated about the battery power, it has been increased by 10 percent over its predecessor. The camera would come in the colours of Matte Black and Glossy White. Nikon Coolpix P340 isnt a true upgrade to the predecessor P330 after all, for it has not been able to overcome the shortcomings of the previous one when it comes to build quality, ergonomics and operation.

Design and Build Quality

Nikon Coolpix P340 gives a feeling of sharpness. As far as its exterior is concerned, there is nothing much difference with its predecessor, P330. The device is box type with sharp edges that look great but when the device comes in hand, it becomes uncomfortable. The one with black matte finish feels nice in hand and the glossy white finish gives a plastic look. There is not much room for a firm grip to be formed and a slim raised grip compensates for a good hold. The camera is quite light when you take it in your hands, so not having a good grip doesn't really become a requisite. There is a standard array of physical controls such as two dials; one above the thumb rest and another around the lens. Also, there is a 3 inches wide 921k dots TFT LCD screen with sharp and bright screen.

Focus and Face Detection

Nikon Coolpix P340 has the following focus areas selections; face detection, center, 9 point Autofocus, target finding AF, 99 point manual focus and subject tracking. For macro shots, the minimum focus distance is 2cm at wide-angle. The optical and digital zooms can go up to 5x and 4x respectively.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Nikon Coolpix P340 features an optical zoom power up to 5x wherein, the zoom focal length range extends from 24mm at wide-angle to 120mm at telephoto, in 35m terms. At full wide-angle, the fast aperture is f/1.8 and at the telephoto end, the aperture plunges to a dim f/5.6. The optical formula of lens consists of seven elements within six groups. The image stabilization/vibration reduction is lens-shift type that helps to fight back camera blur.

Screen and Menus

Nikon CoolPix P340 comes with a sharp and illuminated TFT LCD screen of 3 inches with resolution of 921k dots. It has an anti-reflective coating to it and its brightness can be adjusted by 5 levels. There is no optical or electronic viewfinder in the camera, so LCD is all you have to frame and review the images. The menu system is classic with well arranged tabs having list of menu items. One feels the lag while navigating menus, turning the camera on and off and storing shots in memory. 

Battery

Nikon CoolPix P340 picks up power from an EN-EL12 Li-ion rechargeable battery wherein, at full charge, you can attain 220 shots. The battery power of P340 is said to have been increased by 10% over its predecessor and the battery comes with a terminal cover and a charging AC adapter EH-69P.

Video Mode

Nikon CoolPix P340 is able to record video in full HD resolution of 1080p and frame rates up to 60 frames per second. The frame size would remain 1920 x 1080 pixels. For speedy playback, you can record at lessened frame rates of 15 or 12.5. For slow motion playback or for 120fps high frame rate, you can shoot at VGA resolution with a frame size of 640 x 480 pixels. The videos get compressed in H.264/MP4 AVC and audio comes in via LPCM stereo AAC format. One can take snaps while recording the video as well use autofocus and optical zoom.

Sensors

Nikon CoolPix P340 uses back illuminated CMOS sensor with a megapixel count 12.2MP. The ISO sensitivities begin from 80 and goes up to 3200 equivalents and can be extended up to ISO 6400 within program, aperture-priority, manual or shutter-priority modes. When you turn to monochrome mode, ISO can be further extended to ISO 12800 equivalent. The maximum image resolution is of 4000 x 3000 pixels. The width to height image ratio is of 4:3, size of the sensor is 1/1.7 inches, dimensions; 7.44 x 5.58mm.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • 3 inches wide TFT LCD comes with anti-reflective coating
  • In monochrome mode, you can extend the ISO range to 25600
  • Video can be shot in a resolution of 1080p by frame rates of 60 or 30fps

Cons

  • Makes you wait while writing the shots to memory
  • Isn't much of a great upgrade to P330, the exterior style has no prominent changes
