Every Camera Should Be as Beautiful as Nikon's Newest

Illustration for article titled Every Camera Should Be as Beautiful as Nikons Newest

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 centimeter 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 stabilization, 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 $330. [Nikon]
