Every Camera Should Be as Beautiful as Nikon's Newest

By Sam Biddle on at

The Nikon Coolpix P310 is another point and shoot—except it's completely gorgeous. The boxy design is a matte slate of black perfection. Everyone line is clean, every centimetre accounted for; every button well-placed. Make more things like this.

Inside, the P310 is no dinky shooter: 16 megapixel stills, 1080p video recording, an assignable front function button, full manual controls, image stabilisation, and a swank f/1.8 zoom NIKKOR lens. By my god—it's so small! What you're looking at is only 4.1 x 2.3 x 1.3 inches—easily pocketable. But I don't want to keep it in any pocket. I want to look at it. Boxy is beautiful. More angles. Cameras shouldn't resemble spaceships. Check for it next month at £300. [Nikon]
