Nikon Coolpix S9400 Digital Camera, HD 1080p, 18MP, 18x Optical Zoom, 3” OLED Screen

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

The Nikon Coolpix S9400’s slimline body conceals a wealth of cutting-edge technology that sets this 18-megapixel camera apart. The 18x NIKKOR optical super zoom lens and backlit 18-megapixel CMOS sensor capture distant action and candid close-ups with ease. Lens-shift vibration reduction enables sharp results and a steady image on the large OLED screen, making it easier to frame your shots.

Key benefits:

  • Super zoom gets you right into the thick of the action. An 18x NIKKOR wide-angle optical zoom lens with ED glass will make you a sharp shooter from virtually any distance.
  • Capture those special moments just as you remember them. A back-illuminated 18-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers more light to each pixel. This highly sensitive image sensor works in tandem with the EXPEED processor to deliver clearer shots in any light.
  • Review everything from shots to film clips in the quality they deserve. A 3-inch 614k-dot OLED screen means this large screen offers excellent visibility and sharp contrast in all light conditions, including direct sunlight.
  • Chase the moment, get into position and shoot with confidence. Nikon’s automatic vibration reduction technology counters the effects of camera shake in real time, producing steady photos and movies.
  • Enjoy Full HD movie recording off the cuff. A dedicated video-record button makes it easy to begin filming. Optical zoom and autofocus are also available while filming, and the built-in HDMI connector provides a direct link to an HDTV.
  • Using Auto HDR mode the camera combines two shots taken at different exposures during a single shutter release to create an image with wide dynamic range and rich colour gradation. The result? Better shots more often!
  • Ever just missed that perfect picture? The smart portrait system combines smile timer (takes the shot when your subject smiles), blink proof (alerts you when someone’s eyes were closed), and glamour retouch (glosses over those imperfections), to save the day.
  • Easy Panorama 360°/180°: pan vertically or horizontally to create dynamic panoramas.
  • 3D shooting mode: create 3D images that can be displayed on 3D-capable TVs and computers.
  • Enhance your photos on the spot with a wide range of in-camera filter effects, including quick effect mode in playback. Selective Colour converts your image to monochrome and then adds a splash of colour to the area of your choice, while Cross Screen adds a starry effect to bright objects.
  • High-speed continuous shooting: capture sharp shots of the action with ease. The camera can shoot up to 5 frames at a fast 7.5 fps.
  • Scene modes automatically optimise the camera settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations. Achieve great shots just by selecting the mode that matches your situation.
  • Subject Tracking AF: capture sharp shots of subjects on the move. Subject Tracking AF keeps the camera focused on a selected subject even if it refuses to stay still.
  • Includes: strap and battery.
