Lens System

Very Small Digital Zoom

High megapixel cameras that have been on the market for more than two years have digital zooms of between 2x and 810x. At only 2 times zoom factor, the Nikon Coolpix L340 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that were released more than two years ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 2x digital zoom cameras currently available including the Samsung NX1100 (£289.99) which has better reviews.

Cameras with a bigger digital zoom that might be worth considering include the Canon IXUS 275 HS (4x) which also has a higher rating.

The Coolpix L340 has one of the bigger optical zooms (28 times zoom factor) amongst digital cameras of this age. The average optical zoom of similar spec digital cameras that were released more than two years ago is 16x.

If this digital camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the DSC-HX90 (£299) (30x and higher rated), or the DSC-WX500 (£269) (30x and higher rated) both from Sony.

Display

Average Display Diagonal

The Coolpix L340 has a pretty average display diagonal (3 inches) compared to most of the other cameras of this age and spec.

We compared this camera to all the other 3" screen digital cameras and we think the Canon EOS 7D (£579.99), and the Panasonic DMC-TZ60 (£229) which both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If this digital camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 (4.7") which also has a higher rating.
