Wi-Fi (Wireless LAN Network)
Introduction
This product is controlled by the United States Export Administration
Regulations, and you are required to obtain permission from the United States
government if you export or re-export this product to any country to which the

embargo: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria. Since the target countries
are subject to change, please contact the United States Department of
Commerce for the latest information.
Restrictions on Wireless Devices
The wireless transceiver included in this product conforms to wireless
regulations in the country of sale and is not for use in other countries (products
purchased in the EU or EFTA can be used anywhere within the EU and EFTA).
Nikon does not accept liability for use in other countries. Users who are unsure
as to the original country of sale should consult with their local Nikon service

Notice for Customers in the U.S.A. and Canada
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry of Canada (IC)
Declaration of Conformity
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules and Industry Canada licenceexempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of this
device.
FCC/IC RF Exposure Statement
This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any
other antenna or transmitter.
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are
associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however,
that these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power wireless
devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range
while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by
heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that does not produce heating effects
causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF
exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested
that some biological effects might occur, but such findings have not been
confirmed by additional research.
COOLPIX P340, which is equipped with a LBWA1ZZYM6 (FCC ID:VPYLBYM / IC
ID:772C-LBYM) Wireless LAN Module, has been tested and found to comply
with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment
xii
and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C
to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. Please refer
to the SAR test report that was uploaded to FCC website.
Notice for customers in Singapore
This device complies with radio-frequency regulations.
Introduction
Declaration of Conformity (Europe)
Hereby, Nikon Corporation, declares that COOLPIX P340 is in compliance with
the essential requirements and other relevant provisions of Directive 1999/5/

bright tones to the right. The vertical axis shows the number of pixels.
• Increasing exposure compensation value shifts tone distribution to the right, and
decreasing it shifts tone distribution to the left.

Focusing
The focus area varies depending on the shooting mode.
Using the Target Finding AF
In A (auto) mode, or when AF area mode (A67) in A, B, C, D or i mode is
set to Target finding AF, the camera focuses in the manner described below
when you press the shutter-release button halfway.
• The camera detects the main subject and
focuses on it. When the subject is in focus, the
focus area glows green.
If a human face is detected, the camera
automatically sets focus priority on it.
F5.6
• If no main subject is detected, the camera
automatically selects one or more of the 9
focus areas containing the subject closest to
the camera. When the subject is in focus, the
focus areas that are in focus glow green.

Notes About Target Finding AF
• Depending on shooting conditions, the subject that the camera determines to be
the main subject may vary.
• The main subject may not be detected when using certain White balance or
Picture Control settings.
• The camera may not detect the main subject appropriately in the following
situations:
- When the subject is very dark or bright
- When the main subject lacks clearly defined colors
- When the shot is framed so that the main subject is on the edge of the monitor
- When the main subject is composed of a repeating pattern

priority
If the camera detects more than one face, a double border is displayed around
the face that the camera focuses on, and single borders are displayed around
the other faces.
Shooting Features
If the shutter-release button is pressed halfway when no faces are detected:
• When Scene auto selector is selected, the focus area changes depending
on the scene.
• In Portrait and Night portrait scene modes, the camera focuses on the
area in the center of the frame.
• When a (smile timer) is selected, the camera focuses on the subject in the
center of the frame.
• When AF area mode is set to Face priority, the camera selects the focus
area containing the subject closest to the camera.
B
Notes About Face Detection
• The camera’s ability to detect faces depends on a variety of factors, including the
direction in which the faces are looking.
• The camera may be unable to detect faces in the following situations:
- When faces are partially hidden by sunglasses or otherwise obstructed
- When faces take up too much or too little of the frame
C
Viewing Images Taken Using Face Detection
During playback, the camera automatically rotates images according to the
orientation of the faces that were detected at the time of shooting (except for
images taken using Continuous (A67) or Exposure bracketing (A67)).
78
Using Skin Softening
When the shutter is released while using one of the shooting modes listed
below, the camera detects human faces and processes the image to soften
facial skin tones (up to 3 faces).
• Scene auto selector, Portrait, or Night portrait scene mode (A36)
Skin softening can also be applied to saved images (A83).
B
Notes About Skin Softening
• It may take more time than usual to save images after shooting.
• Under some shooting conditions, the desired skin softening results may not be
achieved, and skin softening may be applied to areas of the image where there are
no faces.
Subjects Not Suitable for Autofocus
Shooting Features
The camera may not focus as expected in the following situations. In some rare
cases, the subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the focus area or
focus indicator glows green:
• Subject is very dark
• Objects of sharply differing brightness are included in the scene (e.g. the sun
behind the subject makes that subject appear very dark)
• No contrast between the subject and surroundings (e.g. a portrait subject
wearing a white shirt is standing in front of a white wall)
• Several objects are at different distances from the camera (e.g. the subject is
inside a cage)
• Subjects with repeating patterns (window blinds, buildings with multiple
rows of similarly shaped windows, etc.)
• Subject is moving rapidly
In the situations noted above, try pressing the shutter-release button halfway
to refocus several times, or focus on another subject positioned at the same
distance from the camera as the actual desired subject, and use focus lock
(A80).
The camera can also focus using manual focus (A59, 61).
79
Focus Lock
Use focus lock to capture creative compositions even when the focus area is
set to the center of the frame.

remove the battery or memory card while an indicator is flashing. Doing this could
result in loss of data, or in damage to the camera or the memory card.
B
Notes About Movie Recording
• Memory cards with an SD Speed Class rating of 6 or faster are recommended when
recording movies (A21). Movie recording may stop unexpectedly when a
memory card with a lower Speed Class rating is used.
• When using the camera's internal memory, saving movies may take some time.
• Depending on the file size of a movie, it may not be possible to save the movie in
the internal memory or copy it from a memory card to the internal memory.
• The sounds of zoom control operation, zoom, autofocus lens drive movement,
vibration reduction, and aperture operation when brightness changes may be
recorded.
• The following phenomena may be seen in the monitor while recording movies.
These phenomena are saved in the recorded movies.
- Banding may occur in images under fluorescent, mercury-vapor, or sodium-vapor
lighting.
- Subjects that move quickly from one side of the frame to the other, such as a
moving train or car, may appear skewed.
- The entire movie image may be skewed when the camera is panned.
- Lighting or other bright areas may leave residual images when the camera is
moved.
• Depending on the distance to the subject or the amount of zoom applied, subjects
with repeating patterns (fabrics, lattice windows, etc.) may have colored stripes
(interference patterns, moire, etc.) in them during movie recording and playback.
This occurs when the pattern in the subject and the layout of the image sensor
interfere with each other; it is not a malfunction.
Recording and Playing Back Movies
Individual movie files cannot exceed 4 GB in size or 29 minutes in length, even when
there is sufficient free space on the memory card for longer recording.
• The maximum movie length for a single movie is displayed on the shooting screen.
• Recording may end before either limit is reached if camera temperature becomes
elevated.
• The actual movie length may vary depending on the movie content, subject
movement, or type of memory card.
87
B
Notes About Using Zoom During Movie Recording
• The zoom indicator is not displayed during movie recording.
• There may be some degradation in image quality when digital zoom is used. If you
zoom in on the subject while recording a movie, the zoom motion temporarily
stops at the position where optical zoom is changed to digital zoom.
Recording and Playing Back Movies

B
Camera Temperature
• The camera may become warm when recording movies for an extended period of
time or when the camera is used in a hot area.
• If the inside of the camera becomes extremely hot when recording movies, the
camera will automatically stop recording. The amount of time remaining until the
camera stops recording (B10s) is displayed. After the camera stops recording, it
turns itself off.
Leave the camera off until the inside of the camera has cooled.
Focusing and Exposure Locking During Movie Recording
• The focus can be adjusted during movie recording in the following manner
in accordance with the Autofocus mode (A90) setting of the movie
menu.
- A Single AF (default setting): The focus is locked when movie
recording starts. To perform the autofocus function during movie
recording, press the multi selector J.
- B Full-time AF: The focus is adjusted repeatedly even during movie
recording.
• When the multi selector K is pressed during movie recording, the exposure
is locked. To unlock, press K again.
• When the focus mode (A59) is E (manual focus), adjust the focus
manually. The focus can be adjusted while recording movies by rotating the
multi selector counterclockwise to focus on far subjects or clockwise to
focus on near subjects.
• Autofocus may not perform as expected (A79). Should this occur, try E
(manual focus) (A59, 61) or set Autofocus mode in the movie menu to
A Single AF (default setting) and then use focus lock (A80) to record.
Saving Still Images While Recording Movies
B
Notes About Saving Still Images During Movie Recording
• Still images cannot be saved during movie recording in the following situations.
- When movie recording is paused
- When a movie is recorded to the internal memory
- When the remaining movie length is less than 10 seconds
- When Movie options (A90) is set to n 1080/60i, q 1080/50i, g
480/30p, s 480/25p or HS movie
• Frames of a movie that were recorded when a still image was being taken may not
be played back in a seamless manner.
• The sounds of operating the shutter-release button when saving a still image may
be heard in the recorded movie.
• If the camera moves when the shutter-release button is pressed, the image may be
blurred.
Recording and Playing Back Movies
If the shutter-release button is pressed all the
way while recording a movie, one frame is saved
as a still image (JPEG image). Movie recording
continues while the still image is being saved.
• The maximum number of still images that can
be saved during a movie recording (10
7m23s
images) and Q are displayed at the top left of
the monitor. When f is displayed, a still
image cannot be saved.
• The image quality of the still pictures to be saved is the same as that set for
Image quality (E23). When Image quality is set to RAW (NRW), still
pictures are saved with Fine as the image quality.
• The image size of the still images to be saved is set to e (3968 × 2232

Caring for the Products
The Camera
To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the precautions
described below in addition to the warnings in “For Your Safety” (Avii-ix)
when using or storing the device.
B
Do Not Drop
The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shock or vibration.
B
Handle the Lens and All Moving Parts with Care
Do not apply force to the lens, lens cover, monitor, memory card slot, or battery
chamber. These parts are easily damaged. Applying force to the lens cover could
result in camera malfunction or damage to the lens. Should the monitor break, care
should be taken to avoid injury caused by broken glass and to prevent the liquid
crystal from the display touching the skin or entering the eyes or mouth.
B
Keep Dry
The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.
B
Avoid Sudden Changes in Temperature
Sudden changes in temperature, such as when entering or leaving a heated building
on a cold day, can cause condensation to form inside the device. To prevent
condensation, place the device in a carrying case or a plastic bag before exposing it
to sudden changes in temperature.
Technical Notes and Index
B
Keep away from Strong Magnetic Fields
Do not use or store this device in the vicinity of equipment that generates strong
electromagnetic radiation or magnetic fields. Strong static charge or the magnetic
fields produced by equipment such as radio transmitters could interfere with the
monitor, damage data saved on the memory card, or affect the product’s internal
circuitry.
B
Do Not Point the Lens at Strong Light Sources for Extended
Periods
Avoid pointing the lens at the sun or other strong light sources for extended periods
when using or storing the camera. Intense light may cause deterioration of the
image sensor, producing a white blur effect in photographs.
F2
B
Turn the Product off Before Removing or Disconnecting the Power
Source or the Memory Card
Do not remove the battery while the product is on, or while images are being saved
or deleted. Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data
or in damage to product memory or internal circuitry.
B
Notes About the Monitor
• Monitors and electronic viewfinders are constructed with extremely high precision;
at least 99.99% of pixels are effective, with no more than 0.01% being missing or
defective. Hence while these displays may contain pixels that are always lit (white,
red, blue, or green) or always off (black), this is not a malfunction and has no effect
on images recorded with the device.
• Images in the monitor may be difficult to see under bright lighting.
• The monitor is lit by an LED backlight. Should the monitor begin to dim or flicker,
contact your Nikon-authorized service representative.
The Battery
Technical Notes and Index
• Be sure to read and follow the warnings in “For Your Safety” (Avii-ix) before
use.
• Check the battery level before using the camera and replace or charge the
battery if necessary. Do not continue charging once the battery is fully
charged as this will result in reduced battery performance. Whenever
possible, carry a fully charged spare battery when taking images on
important occasions.
• Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above
40°C (104°F).
• Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5°C to 35°C
(41°F to 95°F) before use.
• When the battery temperature is between 0°C and 10°C (32°F to 50°F) or
45°C to 60°C (113°F to 140°F), the chargeable capacity may decrease.
• The battery is not charged at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or
above 60°C (140°F).
• Note that the battery may become hot during use; wait for the battery to
cool before charging. Failure to observe these precautions could damage
the battery, impair its performance, or prevent it from charging normally.
• On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. If an exhausted
battery is used at a low temperature, the camera will not turn on. Be sure
that the battery is fully charged before heading outside to take images in
cold weather. Keep spare batteries in a warm place and exchange as
necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of its charge.
• Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning.
Should the battery terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry
cloth before use.
F3
• If the battery will not be used for some time, insert it in the camera and
completely exhaust it before removing it for storage. The battery should be
stored in a cool location with an ambient temperature of 15°C to 25°C (59°F
to 77°F). Do not store the battery in hot or extremely cold locations.
• Always remove the battery from the camera or optional battery charger
when it is not being used. When inserted, minute amounts of current are
drawn from the battery even when not in use. This may result in excessive
draining of the battery and complete loss of function. Turning the camera
on or off while the battery is exhausted can result in reduced battery life.
• Recharge the battery at least once every six months and completely exhaust
it before returning it to storage.
• After removing the battery from the camera or optional battery charger, put
the battery in a plastic bag, etc. to insulate it and store it in a cool place.
• A marked drop in the time a fully-charged battery retains its charge, when
used at room temperature, indicates that the battery needs to be replaced.
Purchase a new EN-EL12 battery.
• Replace the battery when it no longer holds a charge. Used batteries are a
valuable resource. Please recycle used batteries in accordance with local
regulations.
Charging AC Adapter
Technical Notes and Index
F4
Be sure to read and follow the warnings in “For Your Safety” (Avii-ix) before
use.
• The Charging AC Adapter EH-71P is for use only with compatible devices. Do
not use with another make or model of device.
• Do not use a USB cable other than the UC-E21. Using a USB cable other than
the UC-E21 could result in overheating, fire or electric shock.
• Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter
other than Charging AC Adapter EH-71P, and do not use a commercially
available USB-AC adapter or a battery charger for a mobile phone. Failure to
observe this precaution could result in overheating or in damage to the
camera.
• The EH-71P is compatible with AC 100 V-240 V, 50/60 Hz electrical outlets.
When using in other countries, use a plug adapter (available commercially)
as necessary. For more information about plug adapters, consult your travel
agency.
Memory Cards
• Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards”
(A21) for recommended memory cards.
• Observe the precautions noted in the documentation included with your
memory card.
• Do not affix labels or stickers to the memory card.
• Do not format the memory card using a computer.
• The first time you insert a memory card that has been used in another device
into this camera, be sure to format it with this camera. We recommend
formatting new memory cards with this camera before using them with this
camera.
• Note that formatting a memory card permanently deletes all images
and other data on the memory card. If there is data saved on the memory
card that you wish to keep, copy that data to a computer before formatting.
• If the message Card is not formatted. Format card? is displayed when
the camera is turned on, the memory card must be formatted. If there is data
on the memory card that you do not want to delete, select No and press the
k button. Copy that data to a computer before formatting. To format the
memory card, select Yes.
• Observe the following precautions while formatting the memory card,
saving and deleting images, and copying images to a computer, otherwise
data or the memory card itself may be damaged.
- Do not open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover or remove the
memory card or battery.
- Do not turn off the camera.
- Do not disconnect the AC adapter.

Caring for the Camera
Cleaning
Lens
Avoid touching glass parts with your fingers. Remove dust or lint with
a blower (typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one
end that is pumped to produce a stream of air out the other end). To
remove fingerprints or other stains that cannot be removed with a
blower, wipe the lens with a soft cloth, using a spiral motion that
starts at the center of them and working toward the edges. If this fails,
clean the lens using a cloth lightly dampened with commercial lens
cleaner.
Monitor
Remove dust or lint with a blower. To remove fingerprints and other
stains, clean the monitor with a soft, dry cloth, being careful not to
apply pressure.
Body
Use a blower to remove dust, dirt, or sand, then wipe gently with a
soft, dry cloth. After using the camera at the beach or other sandy or
dusty environment, wipe off any sand, dust, or salt with a dry cloth
lightly dampened with fresh water and dry thoroughly. Note that
foreign matter inside the camera could cause damage not
covered by the warranty.
Do not use volatile organic solvents such as alcohol or thinner, chemical
detergents, anticorrosive agents, or anti-fogging agents.
Technical Notes and Index
F6
Storage
Turn the camera off when not in use. Be sure that the power-on lamp is off
before putting the camera away. Remove the battery if the camera will not be

camphor moth balls, or in any of the following locations:
• Next to equipment that produces strong electromagnetic fields, such as
televisions or radios
• Exposed to temperatures below –10°C (14°F) or above 50°C (122°F)
• Places that are poorly ventilated or subject to humidity of over 60%
To prevent mold or mildew, take the camera out of storage at least once a
month. Turn the camera on and release the shutter a few times before putting
the camera away again.

seen in the captured images and recorded movies.
• Use D (Best Shot Selector) of Continuous in the
shooting menu.
• Use a tripod to stabilize the camera when shooting
(using the self-timer at the same time is more
effective).
