Reasons For

9 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 20.2MPMP digital camera. That's 4.1MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix P600 (16.1MPMP). Read more

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.

19% more total megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 20.48MPMP digital camera. That's 3.72MP more than the Nikon Coolpix P600 (16.76MPMP).
0.2 smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a minimum aperture of 3.1, whereas the Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 3.3 minimum aperture digital camera (0.2 larger).
Vastly longer maximum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a maximum focal length of 630mmmm, however the Nikon Coolpix P600 is only a 1,440mmmm maximum focal length digital camera (629mm shorter).
7% shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 22.5mmmm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 1.5mm shorter than the Nikon Coolpix P600 (24mmmm).
25% smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is an 80 minimum ISO speed digital camera. That's 20 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix P600 (100).
A lot lighter Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a weight of 430gg, however the Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 565gg digital camera (135g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Four supported batteries Edit
The number of supported batteries on the Nikon Coolpix L340 is four, but the Nikon Coolpix P600 only has one supported battery.
370 shots shots per battery charge Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 takes 370 shots shots per battery charge, however the Nikon Coolpix P600 only takes 330 shots shots per battery charge. Read more

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.

6 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 60xx optical zoom digital camera. That's 32x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (60xx). Read more

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.

50% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 4xx digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (4xx). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 6.5 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 0.6 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (6.5).
Higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 5 higher than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (6,400).
24% bigger internal memory Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 56MBMB internal memory digital camera. That's 13MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (56MBMB).
Higher display resolution Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 921,000 pixels pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 461 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (921,000 pixels pixels).
