Has a GPS (satellite)

has a GPS (satellite)

The Coolpix L340 has a GPS (satellite), which is unusual. Most of the other high megapixel cameras that were launched around the same time as this camera do not have a GPS (satellite).

We compared all the other cameras with a GPS (satellite) to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony DSC-HX200, the Nikon P520, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 is also worth considering.

When compared to other digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as this camera that we have checked the digital zoom of, the Coolpix L340's digital zoom of only 2 times zoom factor is one of the smallest.

There are a number of other 2x digital zoom digital cameras currently available which you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Samsung NX1100.
