Other Features

has a built-in flash

The Coolpix S3400 has a built-in flash, as do most of the other digital cameras of a comparable age and spec to this camera.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras with a built-in flash and we think because of their better review scores, the Canon IXUS 275 HS, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40 are also worth considering.

Display

Very Small Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of only 2.7 inches, the Coolpix S3400 has one of the smaller display diagonals amongst cameras of this age. Digital cameras of this spec and age have display diagonals of between 2.5" and 4.8".

Other 2.7" screen digital cameras currently available that you might want to consider include because of their better review scores, the DSC-WX200, or the Alpha A58 both from Sony.

If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Nikon D810 (£1,674.99) (3" and higher rated), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (£579) (3" and higher rated).

Average Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 4 times zoom factor, the Nikon Coolpix S3400 has a pretty average digital zoom compared to most of the other high megapixel cameras that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this camera to all the other 4x digital zoom cameras and we think the S9400, and the D810 (£1,674.99) both from Nikon or the Canon EOS 5D Mark II which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If you want a bigger digital zoom then you might want to consider the Alpha A5100 (£310) (8x and higher rated), the Alpha A5100L (8x and higher rated), or the DSC-WX220 (£99.99) (20x and higher rated) all from Sony.
