In Lower Light Environments

Simply transfer your photos to compatible smartphones or mobile devices and share them instantly with family and friends.

Low-Light Performance

    Don't let your flash interrupt intimate moments or live performances.

When lighting conditions are too dim, the P340 has a built-in flash ready for you.
24-120mm f/1.8 NIKKOR Lens
    The 5x Zoom-NIKKOR lens has a focal length of 5.1-25.5mm, equivalent to 24-120mm in 35mm format, and a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture. It utilizes Lens-shift Vibration Reduction technology to help overcome the effects of camera shake for crisper-looking shots. The lens features a seven-blade iris diaphragm for sharp in-focus points and pleasing background blur in the out-of-focus regions of your images.

    The large 3.0-inch TFT LCD screen features an anti-reflective coating and a resolution of 921k pixels. The screen features six-level brightness adjustment and offers 100% frame coverage both vertically and horizontally in shooting and playback modes.
