Nikon Coolpix P340

Announced Feb 7, 2014 •
12 megapixels | 3 screen | 24 – 120 mm (5×)

The image quality is great and contestant.  The really fast lens at 24 wide angle is a blessing for indoor situations.  I use my big DLSR when I want speed, but when I do not care about shooting tonnes of pics and want to keep things light and non-intimidating for people I use this camera with great results.  In fact this small little thing is used majority of times in my wife's art studio classes, so by all means I can call this function a professional one.

I have been looking for a quality pocket camera that would be convenient to carry. I like the build and size of this camera. I also like the buttons which I prefer to any touch controls.
