The Nikon Coolpix 8400 features the widest-angle of coverage of any digital camera available today, offering photo purists and creative photographers the answer to their search for true wide-angle photography from a compact digital camera. The Coolpix 8400 provides users with 8.0 effective megapixel performance and a versatile ultra-wide 24-85mm (35mm equivalent) zoom Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass lens. An optional wide-angle converter takes the camera even wider to an unmatched 18mm of coverage.

The Coolpix 8400 employs an ultra-fast Auto Focus (AF) system and 15 Scene Modes, including Panorama Assist to take advantage of the camera’s wide angle of coverage. Macro shooting capabilities let you get as close as 1.2 inches to fill the screen with small objects. Continuous shooting enables 5 images to be taken at 2.3 fps at full 8-megapixel resolution and Multi-Shot allows 16 consecutive shots to be taken in quick succession. The"last 5-shot buffer" that allows users to hold down the shutter release and let go when the action stops ensuring they get the sequence they are looking for. In addition, the Coolpix 8400 also captures 640 x 480 VGA resolution motion video at 30fps with audio. Smaller 320 x 240 resolution movies can be recorded at 15fps. The length of the movies is only limited by available memory.
