Reasons For

Nikon Coolpix L31 Nikon Coolpix L340
2 Reasons For
10% Larger Maximum Aperture Number
The Nikon Coolpix L31 is a 6.5 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 0.6 larger than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (5.9).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camera's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Cheaper by £84
The Nikon Coolpix L31 costs £84.05 less than the Nikon Coolpix L340.
18 Reasons For
21% Higher Megapixels
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a megapixels of 20.2MP, however the Nikon Coolpix L31 is only a 16.1MP digital camera (4.1MP lower).

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Read more Read less | Edit
23x Bigger Optical Zoom
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has an optical zoom of 28x, however the Nikon Coolpix L31 is only a 5x optical zoom digital camera (23x smaller).

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

Read more Read less | Edit
Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
Nikon Coolpix L340 is 3.1 minimum aperture. That's 0.1 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L31 (3.2).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camera's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the camera to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

Read more Read less | Edit
80% Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 630mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 500mm longer than the Nikon Coolpix L31 (130mm).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the camera lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore greater focal lengths mean that the camera has the ability to zoom in closer to a subject.

A longer maximum focal length means that the camera is capable of zooming in a much greater distance, allowing you to clearly photograph subjects further away.

Read more Read less | Edit
Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Nikon Coolpix L340 is 22.5mm minimum focal length, but the Nikon Coolpix L31 is a 26mm minimum focal length digital camera (3.5mm longer).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the camera lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore smaller focal lengths mean that the camera has the ability to zoom out further to take in more of the scene at once.

A smaller minimum focal length means that the camera can take in more of the scene at once, allowing for wide landscape shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
26MB Bigger Internal Memory
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has an internal memory of 43MB, however the Nikon Coolpix L31 is only a 17MB internal memory digital camera (26MB smaller).

Internal memory is the amount of digital storage built into the camera.

The bigger the internal memory of the camera, the more photos can be stored at one time, without having to resort to an external SD card.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Bit Larger Display Diagonal
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a display diagonal of 3", however the Nikon Coolpix L31 is only a 2.7" screen digital camera (0.3" smaller).

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Read more Read less | Edit
Vari-Angle LCD Display
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a vari-angle LCD display, however the Nikon Coolpix L31 does not.

A 'vari-angle display' on a digital camera means that the display can be adjusted so it can be viewed effectively from many different angles.

This is a helpful addition because it means you won't have to hold the camera directly in front of your face in order to view the display successfully - helpful if you're shooting from unusual angles.

Read more Read less | Edit
230,000 Pixels Higher Display Resolution
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a display resolution of 460,000 pixels, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L31 is only a 230,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels lower).

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Read more Read less | Edit
HDMI
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has an HDMI, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L31 does not have an HDMI.

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

Read more Read less | Edit
GPS (satellite)
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a GPS (satellite), however the Nikon Coolpix L31 does not have a GPS (satellite).

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Read more Read less | Edit
760 More Battery Life
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a digital camera that takes 960 battery life, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L31 only takes 200 battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Better for Portrait Photography
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is better for portrait photography than the Nikon Coolpix L31.
When ranking cameras for their skill in taking portrait photos, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. The most important of these are image resolution, sensor size and image stabilisation. A larger image resolution means the portrait will be more detailed, while the sensor and stabiliser means that the portrait won’t be blurry at all. On top of that, a pre-flash can help reduce the chance of red eye, and smile detection can help find that perfect moment Finally, extras like a handheld remote control or a self timer can help with taking self-portraits and group shots.

Better for Landscape Photography
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is better for landscape photography than the Nikon Coolpix L31.
When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph landscapes, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes. The most important of these is optical zoom capability, since it allows you to take detailed photos of particular parts of the landscape from a long way away and still have them come out in good detail. Weight and battery life are also very important, since you may be carrying your camera with your for a long time while walking around - you want it to be light enough to not be a hassle, and with a good strong battery, so it doesn’t run out of juice mid-way through the trip! Finally we have taken into account several important factors, such as environmental protection (especially water and dust resistance) and whether the camera comes with GPS, in order to pin-point exactly where you took the photo for later reference.

Better for Everyday Photography
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is better for everyday photography than the Nikon Coolpix L31.
When ranking cameras for everyday use, we’ve concentrated on size and battery life, since you don’t want your camera weighing you down as you wander, and you definitely don’t want it running out of juice! Good optical sensor size and an image stabiliser are also important, since many of your photos will be taken with very short notice, and these will help reduce any instances of blurring in the photo. Finally, a moving display allows you to tilt the display up and down, in order to raise or lower the camera to find interesting angles, while still being able to see the display to frame the shot.

Better for Sports Photography
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is better for sports photography than the Nikon Coolpix L31.
One of the most important attributes of a good sports photography camera is speed. The players at a game will normally be moving very fast, so you need a camera that will keep up with them and produce clean, unblurry photos. Therefore a fast shutter speed and an image stabiliser will allow you to react fast to sudden events without the end result turning into a blurry mess. Connected to this, a multi burst (or ‘motor drive’) functionality will allow you to take a larger number of photos in a very short space of time - therefore meaning you’ll have a large number of shots to choose from when selecting the perfect photo afterwards. Because you may be taking an awful lot of photos, a good battery life is very important too. Finally, weatherproofing is always a good idea - rain doesn’t always stop play, and you definitely don’t want it to stop your camera!

Better for Wildlife Photography
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is better for wildlife photography than the Nikon Coolpix L31.
When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph wildlife, we've concentrated on a number of key attributes. Optical zoom is important to allow you to take clear, detailed photos of animals without having to get physically close to them. A high ISO sensitivity will help take cleaner photos in low-light conditions. Finally, since animals tend to move (and sometimes quite fast), we consider a trio of the camera's shutter speed, auto focus power and whether it has an image stabilisation system or not. All three of these will help you take crisper, cleaner photos of fast moving objects.
