Never knowingly undersold

Product information

Capturing amazing pictures doesn't have to be complicated with the Coolpix P340. The bright 5x optical zoom lens with fast aperture performance works with a back-illuminated CMOS sensor for impressive images every time. Built-in Wi-Fi lets you share images easily and use your smart device as a remote control, while the lens ring gives quick access to many settings like manual focus, shutter speed or ISO.

Wide angle zoom lens
The bright 24-120mm lens offers a fast f/1.8 aperture at wide angle and its 5x optical zoom is extendible to 10x Dynamic Fine Zoom.

Wi-Fi connect
Setting up the ideal shot is simple, as built-in Wi-Fi lets you use your smart device as a remote control, so you can explore your creative options.

Full HD video
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.

Bokeh & beyond
Sharpness and fine details are guaranteed from the centre 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.

On-board editing
Enhance your images after shooting with a wide range of filter effects, including Portrait with monochrome background, Selective Colour, Cross Screen, Painting and Fisheye.

Rapid-fire shooting
Capture fast-moving action or momentary facial expressions easily when you can take up to 10 shots at 10fps or up to 30 shots at 1fps.
