Express yourself in high quality with the fast 12-megapixel COOLPIX P340. The bright 5x optical zoom lens – with fast f/1.8 aperture at wide angle – works with the 1/1.7-in back-illuminated CMOS sensor for impressive images every time.
Built-in Wi-Fi lets you share images easily and use your smart device¹ as a remote control, while the functional lens ring gives quick access to many settings like manual focus, shutter speed or ISO.
Active VR (vibration reduction) gives stability and smart AF algorithm is highly effective in low light. Shoot RAW to process images in camera, viewing clearly on the bright 7.5-cm/3.0-in 921k-dot RGBW screen.
The COOLPIX P340 – superior performance made speedy.
The bright 24-120mm lens offers a fast f/1.8 aperture at wide angle and its 5x optical zoom is extendable to 10x Dynamic Fine Zoom¹.
The large (1/1.7-in) and highly sensitive sensor gives sharp shots even in low light – perfect for creative night cityscapes.
Setting up the ideal shot is simple, as built-in Wi-Fi lets you use your smart device² as a remote control, so you can explore your creative options.
A multifunctional lens ring gives direct access – without menus – to key settings like ISO, aperture or shutter speed for fast image optimisation.
Optimised AF operation offers high-speed autofocus and greater focus detection in low light, so you’ll capture sharp images in all light conditions.
In manual focus, the edges of a focused area are emphasised in white, so you can easily view them on-screen and adjust the intensity for finer details.
RAW (NRW) image data is supported, letting you make the most of the image sensor’s potential. You can also process and adjust your images in-camera.
With the introduction of multitask processing, you can now start taking your second shot while your first image is being processed, significantly reducing waiting time – particularly when shooting RAW.
7.5-cm/3.0-in 921k-dot RGBW screen: frame your shots easily and view them clearly in any light on the large, energy-efficient screen, with anti-reflective coating and adjustable brightness.
High ISO light sensitivity: with ISO (80-6400) extendable to Hi 1 (12800 equivalent) – and 25600 ISO in monochrome mode – faster shutter speeds are enabled for finely detailed images and low noise when shooting in low light.
Customisable function (Fn) button: frequently used functions can be assigned to the Fn button, allowing fast access to settings like continuous shooting, ISO sensitivity, AF-area mode, white balance or exposure metering.
Comfortable, easy operability: with the functional lens ring and two command dials, your custom settings are always in easy reach. For example, you could set ISO sensitivity with the lens ring, adjust the aperture with the command dial and set shutter speed with the multi-selector dial.
Advanced Lens-Shift VR (vibration reduction): vibration reduction counters the effect of camera shake, to ensure you get clear shots at all times. In Active mode it compensates for movement while walking or shooting from a moving vehicle.
Full HD movies: switch from stills to Full HD (1080/60i/50i) video with a single touch of the dedicated movie-record button. Film at 30 fps or 25 fps, plus you can continue to shoot photos or use AF and optical zoom while recording.
Advanced Movie Features: make dramatic slow-motion movies or comical fast-motion movies, pause recording and lock auto exposure even when the ambient brightness changes significantly during movie recording.
Easy Wi-Fi Sharing: sending images to your smart device² for sharing on social media is made simple with built-in Wi-Fi. You can even use your smart phone or tablet as a remote control to take even more creative shots for sharing. The GPS data from your smart device can also be embedded in the photos you transfer to it, so you can pinpoint where your shots were taken.
Active D-Lighting: Nikon’s Active D-Lighting automatically retains the details in both the dark and light areas of your shot to create superior images with natural contrast, when shooting in high-contrast situations.
High resolution lens: sharpness and fine details are guaranteed from the center to the corner of frame, while the 7-blade iris diaphragm gives images with beautiful background blur. The built-in ND filter allows you to use slower shutter speeds even in bright situations and creatively adjust the degree of blur, perfect for expressive shots of flowing water.
Auto HDR mode: your camera automatically combines two shots taken at different exposures in a single shutter release, creating a single image with wide dynamic range and rich colour gradation.
Easy Panorama 360°/180°: capture stunning scenery simply, by tilting vertically or panning horizontally to create dynamic panoramas.
Mode dial with manual exposure modes (P/S/A/M): recall your preferred camera settings instantly with the easy access mode dial.
High speed continuous shooting: capture fast-moving action or momentary facial expressions easily when you can take up to 10 shots at 10 fps or up to 30 shots at 1 fps.
Retouch menu: enhance your images after shooting with a wide range of filter effects, including Portrait with monochrome background, Selective Colour, Cross Screen, Painting and Fish Eye.
COOLPIX Picture Control: sharpness, contrast, image sharpening, toning, colour saturation and filter effects can all be pre-set with Picture Control. Choose from four types of Picture Control (Standard, Neutral, Vivid and Monochrome) or set your own Custom Picture Control.
18 scene modes: your camera can automatically optimise settings for popular photographic styles and locations. You can achieve superb images just by selecting the mode that matches your shooting situation.
High-speed USB battery charging: fast charging via USB connection means your camera battery can easily stay fully charged, so you’re always ready to capture the action.
EXPEED C2: Nikon’s fast and powerful image processing system ensures high-speed operation, high-sensitivity performance and optimum image quality.
Nikon Image Space: all Nikon users can enjoy 20 GB of free online cloud storage with our dedicated Nikon image storage and sharing site, Nikon Image Space. Find out more at NIKON IMAGE SPACE.
