Product Description

Product Description

The L310 has a 14 megapixel CCD sensor and 21x optical zoom lens, which is a 35mm equivalent of 25-525mm. There is sensor shift VR (vibration reduction) to help reduce the effect of camera shake.
Shooting is made easy thanks to Easy Auto mode, which automatically adjusts the cameras settings for the scene. There are also 17 scene modes which can be manually selected as well as Sports Continuous and Smart Portrait System. This includes Smile Timer, Blink Proof, Skin Softening and Red-eye Fix.
Videos are recorded at 720p HD, with optical zoom available during recording.
The L310 offers a rubberised hand grip as well as a rubber pad on the rear for your thumb, making it an easy camera to grip. As you may expect for a budget camera, the body is made from plastics, but it does have a metal tripod socket and a lock to keep the battery and memory card cover firmly in place. Nikon also supply a lens cap with the camera.
The menus system is simple and easy to navigate using the d-pad. The other buttons are typical for a digital compact, with a movie record button placed on the rear. The 3 inch LCD screen is clear and easy to view.
The L310 is powered by four AA batteries, meaning it'll be easy to find replacements when necessary. It has a CIPA rating of 420 shots, we managed in excess of this number during testing, the number of shots will very much depend on the quality of batteries used.
We tested the cameras performance at focusing, shutter response, shot-to-shot time, continuous shooting etc. and have posted the results below. To test this we took 6 or more shots and calculated the average, so that consistent results were produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb compact camera, with a huge lens 14 May 2012
Because this camera looks like a bridge camera, it's natural to assume it should have lots of controls, and then be disappointed when it doesn't. If you turn that thought on its head, you begin to see that this is actually a very good all-automatic compact camera, but with such a good lens that it couldn't fit into the compact shape. It can manage pretty good wide-angle shooting for indoors, and has a long 21x zoom, which is very good for taking pictures of birds on the birdfeeder in the garden.

The downside is that the big lens means it doesn't really fit into most pockets. The up side is that this camera takes astonishingly good pictures for this sort of camera, and you don't need to be an expert to use it. It uses 4 x AA batteries, which I actually prefer to rechargeables as it's easy to carry spares and there's no worry about recharging when you're out and about. You get your first set of batteries in the box, but you need to buy yourself an SDHC card (such as Transcend 8GB SDHC Class 10 Memory Card), which fits in to the camera beside the batteries. A strap, and a lens cap are provided, together with a manual and some CDs that I haven't looked at.

Best resolution is 4320 x 3240. Choose the resolution with the star beside it, because that gives a higher-quality result. You can also take HD video, but note that this is at 720 pixels, not the higher 1080 standard.

I bought this camera from Argos, not Amazon, because it was cheaper at the time. Actually, I tried to buy a Nikon Coolpix L120 Digital Camera - Black (14MP, 21x Optical Zoom) 3-inch LCD, a Which?

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! I want one! 16 May 2012
I purchased this for my girlfriend, who hasn't got time to learn a dslr, aswell as messing with all those lens changes etc. We both went out to give it a test shoot, and i also took along, my D7000 and 55-300mm lens. No joke, the L310 bridge camera zooms in further, and the quality of the images are 100% on par. Shocked to be honest, and i'm now looking to get one myself, as a back-up camera. Just switch it on, point, and the auto functions do the rest. Impressive, and enough said!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, easy to use camera 25 July 2012
By Solo Walker VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
A really beautiful camera that fits in the hand perfectly. I am a keen walker & have walked miles with it attached to my wrist, so it is a robust piece of equipment. Battery life has really surprised me, weeks down the road & the original batteries are still going strong.
The camera is so easy to use, I can see all the controls without having to use reading glasses. The screen is large & crystal clear. The images are of a very good quality, far exceeding my expectations.
The controls are simple and give access to a whole range of effects that can transform a normal picture to a notch or two above the norm.
Really pleased with the quality of the camera build as well & trust it to provide me with hours of pleasure.
Highly recommended.

By tranran
Seems quite well made but the pressure required to secure the batteries -4 AA-using part of the outer casing does not bode well from a longevity point of view and if you buy new at present there is a 2 yr warranty option offered on the label on the box -take it!. The viewing screen is quite proud and flush to rear of the camera which should be protected otherwise it will be a mass of scratches/scuffs after a few outings. Very good Zoom and the anti-vibration VR function works very well allowing sharp hand held shots at the far end of the range in good light. If you tried to cover the max zoom length with conventional DSLR lenses you would need a lot of bulky and not to say very expensive gear! The reaction time between pressing the shutter and capture is very good allowing quite spontaneous shots of children running towards you (for instance)and is much better than the majority of point & shoot cameras in this respect.
There is -however generally no control over exposure or depth of field -I say generally because it is possible -via the menu-to access the considerable number of scene modes to tailor Sports/Landscape etc, but there is no manual or program facility. The difficulty in accessing the in depth info relating to these modes is further exacerbated because the instructions are provided on a disc which -to me -is stupid in the extreme!!! These instructions -in themselves are not intuitive either and you end up going back and forth through a series of links to find what you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Over the moon with this purchase! 26 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
This camera is great! It is a very good quality camera that not only looks great, it works amazing too. The Nikon coolpix L310 was definitely a good purchase! I wasn't expecting much to be honest, because the price was the one of the lowest that I found online...however it has gone up and over all expectations. The size of the camera is perfect for me. Its not too bulky and heavy, as well as having a slim shape. It took me a couple of hours to get to grips with all the buttons (which there weren't many of) I easily learnt how to change the settings, video record and even try out many of the photo uses. E.g-

-Pet Landscapes
-Close Ups
-Night Landscapes

The camera takes great close ups, I experimented with christmas tree baubles, household ornaments and even raindrops on the window! Every photo was perfectly clear. The camera also takes great wide shots and landscapes, in addition to great pet portraits (Dog wasn't very happy after being followed around for an hour though) :D

I am very pleased with the quality, look and features of this camera and I am overwhelmed with this purchase. I am definitely recommending to everyone looking for a low priced, good quality camera!
