Great Camera...!!! I think in this price, It's a best thing. Image quality is excellent great zoom functionality. I am very much pleased with built quality also with the picture quality. I will highly recommend this product for the beginners. I think Nikon did a great job..!! May 8, 2013
BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I took this camera to the marina today and took sunset pictures and I took pictures of planes from across the bay and it still came out perfectly there is one minor flaw its you must hold it perfectly still but other than that its perfect for great pictures and amazing videos if you ask me I wish I would have bought it sooner ~!!!!!! March 14, 2013
Great, Multi-purpose camera. This is a fantastic camera, really easy to use for simple photography but if you're into more professional or academic photography then this is still for you. I'm still learning about all the different feature at least 6 months after I got it. All the different settings are really useful, I spend a lot of time in low light conditions taking photos (museums etc) and they all come out really clear. A great little camera, not looking to upgrade any time soon. March 1, 2013
L310 This was a Christmas gift, and my first step to a the bigtime, an SLR. This camera has it all and ease of use, Nikon has made great products for years, so this was an easy pick. For the price there is no better camera on the market, we love it February 21, 2013
Excellent Camera and Features and a very low-budget price I bought this camera in diwali. I tell you all I am very much satisfied with the picture quality. What to expect at his price range. It's macro mode is good when properly set on a object at proper distance. There are many other features. I thought a continuous shot mode (~19 images) will be of good quality but not upto satisfaction. Still a good camera. Alternate to this camera, with more 1-2k you can opt for L810 model. It has more optical zoom of 26x with lens of 16.1 Megapixel. February 3, 2013

Answer: 
Yes there is, but its not on the US model for some reason. In the UK (International?) model, 3D is a standard feature.

The specs sheet is very misleading. Nowhere does it say on it that for the 3D you need the L810

Some newer cameras have built in levels so you can take photos straight and level to the horizon. I am wondering if this model has a built in digital level and if not will it work with a spirit level? i.e. is there aplace to attach a spirit level?

Answer: 
No hotshoe but there are bubble levels that attach via e tripod mount and the L310 has a tripod socket. Just do a Internet search for camera level.

Answer: 
Part of the question was is there a place to attach a spirit level or bubble level. I couldn't remember the term but since it was mentioned in the one persons reply, does this mean this particular model of Nikon camera has a hot shoe? It is actually not my camera. My bf is getting one for xmas and he jokes about never taking level or straight images so I want to get him a level for it for xmas.

To clarify the second part of the original question, Does the Nikon L310 have a hot shoe?

Answer: 
If you put it on continuous shooting and hold the shutter button down for a very short time, it will capture only one or two photos with good quality.

Answer: 
The L310 doesn't have a Sport mode that is not Sport Continuous but you should be able to capture action shots outside using the Auto Mode. If you want to freeze the action, set the ISO of the L310 to one of the higher ISO settings while its in Auto Mode. A higher ISO will cause the camera to use a faster shutter speed. Conversely, if you want motion blur try lowering the ISO, forcing the camera to have the shutter open longer. The actual ISO settings needed to accomplish this will vary depending on the light.
