Reasons For

Nikon Coolpix L340 Nikon Coolpix P600
8 Reasons For
Higher Megapixels
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 4.1MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix P600 (16.1MP).

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
0.2 Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 3.1 minimum aperture digital camera, whereas the Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 3.3 minimum aperture digital camera (0.2 larger).

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
7% Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 22.5mm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 1.5mm shorter than the Nikon Coolpix P600 (24mm).

'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
960 Battery Life
The Nikon Coolpix L340 takes 960 battery life, however the Nikon Coolpix P600 only takes 330 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 PhotographyBlog.com Review Score
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a review score of 60% from PhotographyBlog.com, but the rating of the Nikon Coolpix P600 was only 0% from the same site.
11 Reasons For
Image Stabilizer
The Nikon Coolpix P600 has an image stabilizer, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 does not.

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

Read more Read less | Edit
Bigger Optical Zoom
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 60x optical zoom digital camera. That's 32x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (28x).

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
Larger Maximum Aperture Number
The Nikon Coolpix P600 has a maximum aperture number of 6.5. 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
810mm Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 1,440mm maximum focal length digital camera, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 630mm maximum focal length digital camera (810mm shorter).

'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
Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
Nikon Coolpix P600 is 12,800 maximum ISO speed. That's 11,200 higher than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (1,600).

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Read more Read less | Edit
24% Bigger Internal Memory
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 56MB internal memory digital camera. That's 13MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (43MB).

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
Higher Display Resolution
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 921,000 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 461,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (460,000 pixels).

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
Wi-Fi
The Nikon Coolpix P600 supports Wi-Fi, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 does not support Wi-Fi.

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.
