Customer Question
I have a Nikon...
I have a Nikon camera cool pix L340. I need to take very good shots of my nail polish on my nails as I am starting a company and want to sell the polish. I just can’t seem to get the right setting to get a good picture. It’s either pixelated or not smooth. I do need help ***** *****

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That sort of ("closeup") photography, of fine details on small objects, requires a camera with 'Macro Mode' capability - they don't call it closeup, which is more or less cinematography terminology, but rather 'Macro' photography.

I am checking as to whether your camera has that Mode on it, and if so, how to set it that way...

Yes, the good news is, your L340 by Nikon does indeed have Macro mode capability, and it can take beautiful and detailed close-up photos.

Here's the manual page explaining how to set it up, for your reference:

https://www.manualslib.com/manual/988827/Nikon-Coolpix-L340.html?page=51

and I am typing my own version of how-to-set-it-up, also...

Camera and Video Technician: Russell H., Service Tech replied 9 months ago

From the more-or-less 'home' page of the camera's display, press the v (down-arrow, flower icon) on the multi-selector, then

select ON, and then press OK, immediately... is cancelled after a few seconds otherwise.

Move the Zoom control carefully until both 'flower icon' and Zoom control are green. (and the image in the viewfinder looks OK too.)

The Zoom must be very close to, or within, '1'. Camera can then focus as close as 4 inches, with full quality and resolution.

Unless there's a problem or you need more instruction or information, please, before you go, please rate my answer, by Reply and/or by the five-star interface on the JustAnswer page - a five-star rating best expresses appreciation of the work I have done. Thank you, ***** ***** a great day!
