Description

The camera uses AA batteries, instead of Nikon’s more typical EN-EL batteries. With that, purchasing rechargeable batteries is a must to avoid any additional expenses and to ensure reliable battery performance. Display The camera’s onboard microphone only records in mono, which delivers less than ideal audio recordings. Typically, stereo microphones are preferred. Is this a good beginner camera? The Nikon COOLPIX L340 has a 28x optical zoom and a 2x digital zoom, with a minimum focal length of 22.5 millimeters and a maximum focal length of 630 millimeters (35mm film equiv). Unfortunately, it does not feature image stabilization technology. The camera's total number of megapixels amounts to 20.48 MP. For its size, it features a surprisingly large and textured grip, which creates both a comfortable yet, confident hold in hand. While not the smallest camera in this category, the added size goes to the benefit of providing better ergonomics than the competition. Nonetheless, the camera is still quite light, only weighing 430g with both battery and SD card installed. Niche Features/Extras The autofocus system used on this camera is contrast-detection only. These systems work great given enough light, but historically, they don’t provide good low light and video focusing performance. And, sadly, this camera falls victim to both. When shooting in low light environments, the camera struggles to find focus and often doesn’t. Overall, if you plan on shooting a lot in low light, focusing with this camera will be challenging for you. Battery Life

Z 6/Z 7 firmware version 2 added Eye Detection Autofocus functionality as well as some other features. Firmware version 3 for the Z 6/Z 7 added Animal AF Detection. How do you update the firmware in the camera? While video quality in of itself is good, the camera only offers 720 HD videos up to 30 fps, not 1080p full HD. So, unfortunately, for those looking for a sharp and fully capable video camera, it’s a bit antiquated in its capabilities. Not only that, but videos immediately become noisy if the camera increases past ISO 800 when shooting in lower light. Low Light Capabilities The user interface and menus are straightforward. They function well to simplify navigating the camera when the need to alter its settings arises and are beginner-friendly. Physical Layout & Ergonomics The camera comes with a strap for the lens cap, although some may prefer to keep it separate as it does have a habit of dangling in the way - when shooting towards the ground for example. The lens offers image stabilization, which works quite well to ensure footage is stable, even at the lenses maximum zoom. Cons Video CapabilitiesThe autofocusing performance on this camera is good and responsive, given enough light. The camera even features face-detection, which works well to ensure faces are sharp, when in the frame. Battery Performance

Build quality and handling The physical design is also quite simple and follows classic bridge camera design logic. However, the physical buttons featured are strategically placed and easily identifiable. And thankfully, Nikon hasn’t overcrowded the camera with any unnecessary buttons.
