Product Description

The white Nikon COOLPIX P340 Digital Camera is a pocketable, Wi-Fi enabled point-and-shoot equipped with a 12.2MP 1/1.7″ CMOS image sensor. Its 5x Zoom-NIKKOR lens has a 35mm equivalent focal range of 24-120mm, proving good wide-angle to telephoto coverage. A fast maximum aperture of f/1.8, combined with the large CMOS image sensor, lets you capture clear, detailed images in lower-light situations. With up to 10fps continuous shooting and 1080p video recording, the P340 is ready to capture all of life’s moments.

View and frame your shots on the large 3.0-inch TFT LCD screen with 921k-dot resolution, or use an optional HDMI cable for video playback on your HDTV. For those looking for more creative control over their images, RAW file recording and manual exposure controls are available. Sharing your images is easy thanks to the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Simply transfer your photos to compatible smartphones or mobile devices and share them instantly with family and friends.

Low-Light Performance
Don’t let your flash interrupt intimate moments or live performances. With a large 1/1.7″ CMOS sensor and maximum f/1.8 aperture, the P340 lets you capture natural looking, true-to-life photos in low-light environments. When lighting conditions are too dim, the P340 has a built-in flash ready for you.
24-120mm f/1.8 NIKKOR Lens
The 5x Zoom-NIKKOR lens has a focal length of 5.1-25.5mm, equivalent to 24-120mm in 35mm format, and a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture. It utilizes Lens-shift Vibration Reduction technology to help overcome the effects of camera shake for crisper-looking shots. The lens features a seven-blade iris diaphragm for sharp in-focus points and pleasing background blur in the out-of-focus regions of your images.
3.0″ 921k-Dot LCD Monitor
The large 3.0-inch TFT LCD screen features an anti-reflective coating and a resolution of 921k pixels. The screen features six-level brightness adjustment and offers 100% frame coverage both vertically and horizontally in shooting and playback modes.
Built-in Wi-Fi
With built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, the P340 lets you transfer your photos to your smartphone or mobile device for instant sharing. You can also use your mobile device as a remote control – great for capturing self portraits or group shots with you in them.
