Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Tested June 2012
The P310 offers an improved feature set compared to a regular point-and-shoot - offering something for snap-shooters who want to learn more about photography through the camera's manual modes.

Conclusion

The Nikon Coolpix P310 is a hard camera to categorize, offering the sort of manual control and customization options that we'd associate with more expensive models, but with a small sensor and no Raw shooting option. Ultimately, it's a good-looking, pocketable camera that has a lot to offer, but falls short of its (more expensive) high-end rivals when it comes to critical image quality.

Reasons to buy

  • Affordable price compared to other advanced compact camera
  • Good build quality
  • Fast, f/1.8 lens (but only a wide angle)
  • PASM shooting modes
  • Effective optical image stabilization
  • Good image quality at low ISOs

Things to consider

  • No RAW option
  • Small sensor means it doesn't offer the image quality increase of other advanced compacts
  • Flash unusable for closest macro capabilities (0.8 inches/2cm) due to overexposure and shadow cast by lens
  • Image quality drops off above ISO 400, noise levels very high by ISO 3200
  • Noise reduction cannot be disabled

Suggested for

Photographers that want control over exposure and operation in a portable, affordable body, but don't mind JPEG-only shooting

Not suggested for

Anyone that wants to go that little step further in terms of image quality
