Nikon Coolpix P340 Preview

Nikon's Coolpix P340 is a powerful compact camera with a lot of impressive features. The 12.2-megapixels BSI CMOS image sensor can record 1080/60i HD Videos, which is certainly nice, but it's the lens and manual controls that have my attention. The 5x optical zoom lens has as speedy f/1.8 maximum aperture. With that this lens and full manual controls (P, S, A, M), you'll be able to push this point-and-shoot's capabilities with limitless control over exposure and depth of field. Lens Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) helps reduce blur. RAW (NRW) image capture allows users to record the highest quality images possible. And built-in Wi-Fi will allow you to, with the help of a smartphone or tablet, share them.
