Twin Towers, Nikon Zoom 310 AF

'Five frames with the Nikon Zoom 310 AF, rounding up the visit to the Twin Towers'

My third and final post on the Twin Towers which I visited on a couple of occasions recently. While the first two posts were images shot with an AF Nikkor 28-70mm F3.5~4.5 and a Sigma Zoom-Gamma 21-35mm F3.5~4, these here today were with a Nikon Zoom 310 AF compact.

The cute and petite Zoom, when launched in 1994, was the world's most compact zoom, it was even smaller than the Pentax Espio AF which I was shooting with a couple of weeks prior. The diminutive shape came with an equally diminutive viewfinder which requires me to adjust my gait as to the way I brought the camera up to my eyes when framing an image.

With these criticisms aside, and within the limitations of its 35-70mm lens, the Zoom 310 AF is capable, as you can see from the images posted here, of capturing decent images across its zoom range. The camera comes with a programmed electronic shutter and is fitted with a 35mm/F3.5 to 70mm/F6.5 four elements in four groups lens.

As a carry around, the camera is also one of the more robust and solidly built AF compacts that I have had experience with over the past few sessions. The Zoom 310 AF might, in the end, be a good choice as a take-along for one who is always out and about and only has minimal carry space.

p.s.
Our condolences to the family of Cesar Pelli, the architect for the Petronas Twin Towers, who passed away peacefully on July 19, 2019, at the age of 92.
