I Have Had My Nikon Coolpix L310 Now For 12 Months

This is my review after using my Nikon Coolpix L310 for the past 12 months.

My Coolpix camera was given to me as a gift. My son was aware of how much I loved photography and especially how much I was into taking photos of flowers, nature and scenery. This camera has a good reputation for close up photography for the amateur photographer and so far I have had a lot of fun with my Coolpix L310.

After twelve months of taking photos many of them at the beach, in the garden or on day trips I am pleased to be able to share some of my photos and to let you know how I have found this camera.

I have written this hub especially with some of my close up photos so you can see how the camera performs.

Getting To Know My Coolpix L310

From The Beginning I found my Coolpix very easy to use. It has a nice shaped body which makes the camera nice to hold and easy to grip for steady image taking.

The Zoom Control is easy to manage and you can change it quickly.

The camera has a great sized monitor geared up to keep you informed by indicating a large choice of camera settings. As you could expect from a modern camera there is the usual range of different settings for this camera to assist you to get the perfect photo. The Users Manual guides you through each one. If you are in a hurry to can use the easy auto mode feature which quickly sets the camera to the best setting for the type of photo you are about to take. I use this feature often and find it very good easy and fast to use.

Movie Record. Again easy to operate however I have not used this feature often as of yet. I believe each video can be recorded for 29 minutes and you can use the optical zoom while videoing.

It did not take long for me to use my camera and to set it quickly for any image.

I run my camera on 4 AA Rechargeable Batteries and they work well for sometime however I would advise keeping spare batteries on hand to save disappointment especially if you use the camera a lot as I do. Alternative Power Source for continuous extended use you can purchase a AC Adapter EH-67.

This camera will not fit in a medium sized handbag but is not too cumbersome to carry or manage.

Let The Pictures Do The Talking

Sometimes the best way to check out cameras is to view the photos that they take. I enjoy taking photos with m Coolpix L310 and many of them taken in the close up auto setting or the automatic mode.

Photo linked to public domain.

You can see that my photos link through to public domain. I have been taking photos for some time so others can use them also on their websites and blogs. If you go through to look at my photos you may see some of the earlier ones were taken with a small Kodak camera. That is the camera I used before I was gifted with the Coolpix L310.

You can easily view more photos by clicking through on any of my photos to see others that I have taken with this camera.

If you are looking for a fun, small, easy to operate and excellent zoom camera to play around with this would be a good choice.

A very good camera and available at an affordable price.
