I absolutely LOVE this camera. I use it at least twice a week. I take approx. 200 - 300 photos a week and I am so impressed! There are still many functions I haven't figured out yet but I am having a blast learning. No kidding when I tell you that everyone who sees the photos I've taken and had blown up to 8x10 and framed them, all say how beautiful they are and that I should start a business selling them. I am NOT a professional photographer by any means, I just love taking pictures and this camera makes me look like a pro. You won't be sorry if you buy it.
ok let me start with the bad its the small sensor in this camera i dont undersatnd why nikon did not put the large sensor it use's in the p7700 in this camera. The P310 is a great camera as long u stay in the limits of the sensor thats the 100 to 800 ISO when u get above 800 u start to see some noise in the photos. outher then that issue its a winner if you are seeking to find a camera with manual controls that is easy to learn or to use then this is it yes its got a green auto everything mode. but the fun is when u can control the camera to get those wow pictures or low light photos. i do recommend getting a tripod for those lowlight shots due to slow shutter speeds. i do highy recommend getting a class 10 sdhc high speed card like 400x write speed or greater to make the camera work very smooth or get the sdxc cards which are lot of money
Lens Error, Bought the camera less than 3 days ago. I was so happy with the picture quality among many other great things, but three days? C'mon guys. And no the camera will not work at all. I plan on replacing it today, choose any Nikon but this. They are an amazing company but this camera does not meet Nikon expectations.
This is a basic camera that is easy to use and it really does take great pictures and videos. Have a handicam and it has nothing on this so called cheap camera, worth every penny and I would buy another in a heartbeat.
I have been using Nikon cameras for 5 years, and was very happy with their products. Started out with a L22 (made in Japan) 3 years ago for my work that needed a Date\/ Time stamp on \"emailed\" pics for bank work. It lasted 1-1\/2 years before I wore out the push button. Then I went and bought another one #still made in Japan# and that one lasted 1 year - my employee accidentally dropped it and lens would not work. Figuring I'd treat myself to a much newer model with a Touch Screen #$169.00#, I bought a NIKON Coolpix S4300 #now made in CHINA!#. Worked very well - for 3 months. By that time the store warranty had run out, but was still covered under the extra-protection plan I got. Camera worked for 3 months; then the lens would not open! Contacted Nikon; they sent me a shipping label for free shipping...they said they fixed the lens problem...after using it for 3 days, it happen again - same problem! Contacted Nikon-they sent me another label-got a confirmation tracking # from where I shipped it out. Didn't hear anything back for 3 weeks. FINALLY I called them. They said that I dropped it #NEVER DID# and there was an indent on end corner and on lens #they even sent me pics of damage!#. It was in perfect unscratched condition when I sent it to them! They said they wanted $125. to fix it, would not replace or refund my money. Told them to keep the camera they damaged in their shop and I would NEVER buy another Nikon! Thought that was the end of it....they were nice enough to add \"salt to the wound\" and mailed the damaged camera back to me, to which I had fun watching it melt in my firepit....GO WITH A CANON! Good prices, excellent camera, fantastic customer service! #I now have a Canon PowerShot A2500 I bought for $89.00.#
