Sure to turn heads, the COOLPIX S9400 sacrifices nothing for a sleek, stylish design. Packed inside its pocket-sized body is a powerful 18x zoom super-telephoto NIKKOR glass lens with lens-shift Vibration Reduction and Motion Detection. Both of these features are designed to help you take astonishing close-ups that are razor-sharp, even if your hands are a bit unsteady or your subject is moving fast. Its large 3.0-inch 614,000-dot OLED display features Clear Color Display technology and an anti-glare coating for easy viewing, even in direct sunlight. And with an 18.1-megapixel low-light CMOS image sensor, you can shoot without a flash in most low-light situations and enlarge your favorite shots to poster size! Wherever you go, slip the COOLPIX S9400 into your pocket and collect striking memories.
Superior low-light performance
Imagine being able to shoot without a flash at weddings, concerts, parties - anywhere your flash normally fires. You won't have to interrupt a moment to capture it, and your photos and HD videos will look more natural and true to your memory. The COOLPIX S9400 performs so well in low light situations that, in most cases, using the flash is optional. Of course, when the lighting is extremely poor and you need a flash, it'll be there.
Record superior videos
If you want a compact camera that shoots stunning Full HD videos, the COOLPIX S9400 delivers. 1080p Full HD means exceptional video quality. Record the action, then connect to an HDTV and watch your videos come alive. A built-in mic records high-quality audio in stereo. Your videos will look and sound phenomenal.
Sharper photos of moving subjects
When your subject is moving fast, Motion Detection automatically kicks in and selects a faster shutter speed and higher ISO (light sensitivity) to help you get sharper, clearer photos.
Flatter your friends and family
Create beautiful photos of the people you care about. Smart Portrait System activates several features ideal for portraits, like Face Priority AF, Skin Softening, Blink Warning and more.
