Nikon Coolpix L340 202 MP Digital Camera

Nikon Coolpix L340 20.2 MP Digital Camera with 28x Optical Zoomand 3.0-Inch LCD (Black)

You can start taking creative high-resolution photos and videos from near, far and everywhere around you with the Nikon Coolpix L340. An amazing 28x optical zoom telephoto lens with Vibration Reduction gets you closer to the action for sharp 20.2MP photos and steady 720p full HD videos. The high-end grip design and powerful lens makes the COOLPIX L340 much more easy to use than other camera of its class. The camera features scene Auto Selector to take the work out of making great images for you or you can use the simple menu system to select one of the 16 Scene Modes that fits your situation and condition.


The Coolpix L340 measures 111.1 x 76.3 x 83.3 mm (4.4 x 3.1 x 3.3 in.) and it is relatively compact for this type of cameras. The L340 is powered by four AA batteries.

Chunky design, large rubberised hand grip and rear thumb positioning makes the camera nice and easy to hang on to, though it should be mentioned that those with larger fingers may find the gap between the handgrip and lens barrel slightly too narrow.

Whilst the Coolpix L340 may be styled like a bridge camera, but its range of controls provides much more in common with a basic point-and-shoot compact camera. Its buttons are restricted to essential controls for the scene modes, macro mode, flash mode, self-timer and video recording.

A 3” LCD screen gives you a satisfactory viewing experience with good color reproduction and brightness. While the 460k-dot resolution is far away from pin-sharp, it’s the monitor’s viewing angle’s limitations which are more problematic and makes it tough to accurately judge contrast and exposure.

The Coolpix L340 uses Nikon’s tested white on grey with yellow highlights menu design for a nice look. Though it doesn’t look particularly special, but it is basic and easy to navigate, especially shown how few menu options are actually available.

Nikon Coolpix L340 Always ready for action 

The Nikon COOLPIX L340 is powered by 4 AA batteries. These are convenient to use, and widely available everywhere. The camera accepts alkaline, lithium and Nikon rechargeable batteries and these are available as an optional accessory.


Battery life

There has to be some compromises to produce the Nikon Coolpix L340 for such a low price, this is why it doesn’t include a rechargeable battery pack. If don’t fancy shelling out on standard alkaline batteries for the life of the camera, you will need to face the extra cost of buying your own rechargeable batteries and a charger for camera. But it is clear that even with 4 AA alkaline batteries on board, you get a very healthy 370-shots run time. Slot in few premium lithium cells and this can be upped to an incredible 960 shots!!!


While checking, we took a number of shots to test the camera’s responsiveness, from switch on to first photo; shot to shot, focusing speed etc. After we take a number of shots we use the average to ensure accurate and consistent tests, which makes it easy to compare with other cameras.

Pros: Nikon Coolpix L340 is a budget-friendly camera, includes updated lens and zooming system as well as speedy capturing technology.

Cons: Though given the increased prevalence of 4K video; it’s a pity that the L340 can’t at least capture at 1080p resolution.
