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: 16MP stills, 1080p video recording, an assignable front function button, full manual controls, image stabilisation and a swank f/1.8 zoom NIKKOR lens. But 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 $US330. [Nikon]
