Product Description

Product Description

This picture shows all of the colours in the S6400 range (Black, Blue, Red, Purple and Silver).
Choose the colour to match your style.

Sleek and Slim with a Touch of Grand Performance

The slender Nikon COOLPIX S6400 is a powerful high zoom camera that adds a stylish touch to every photo and movie you capture. This pocket-sized companion, available in 5 colours, is operated by touch screen control so you can review pictures and apply a range of creative photo effects with effortless ease. Meanwhile, the 16-megapixel, backlit CMOS sensor combines with the 12x optical zoom and Lens-shift Vibration Reduction, to deliver vivid photos and movies in any light.

Small but Perfectly Formed

Beautifully sharp images and the ability to capture a wide variety of photo opportunities need not be limited to bigger camera models. Despite its slender 19.8mm body, the COOLPIX S6400 accommodates many advanced features and with the 25-300mm 12x NIKKOR ED glass lens you can bring the world closer or zoom out for that big group shot. This together with high ISO capability of up to 3200 and motion detection technology, which ascertains movement of both camera and subject to combat blur, you can be sure that the COOLPIX S6400 will be working hard to provide you with quality images to last a lifetime.

In Any Light

Whether you’re photographing a perfect sunset or a romantic candlelit dinner, you’ll really notice the benefits of the back illuminated CMOS sensor. With each pixel receiving more light, this highly sensitive image sensor works with the EXPEED C2 processor to deliver clear shots and movies in the finest of detail at any time of day or night. The special Night Portrait and Night Landscape scene modes will also assist you in capturing exquisite photos in low light.

Picture shows the LCD touch-screen displaying an example of the Target-Finding Auto-Focus function in operation.
Face-detection technology selects and focuses on people's faces to ensure clear, precise images.

New Intelligent AF Keeps You Focused

Target Finding AF automatically focuses on your desired subject. When photographing people, face-detection technology helps maintain accurate focus to ensure sharp images. For other subjects, subject-prediction technology automatically judges what the main subject is, and sets the AF area to match its size and position to optimise the focus. With an AF system this intelligent, blurred pictures become a thing of the past.

Touch Screen Sophistication

There’s no need to choose between brains and looks with the COOLPIX S6400. A sophisticated 7.5 cm (3.0-in.) 460k-dot, wide LCD touch screen enables intuitive fingertip control over shooting and playback, thanks to smooth touch technology and Nikon’s Clear Colour Display anti-reflection coating. You can even take pictures using the screen. By touching the screen to mark your intended subject the camera will focus on that point and capture the shot instantly. There’s 20 different Scene modes to choose from depending on your surroundings, and once you’ve taken the shot, you can enhance, alter or play around with the picture by using the creative Quick Effect mode. Simply touch the effect icon on the camera’s screen to choose from thumbnails of 19 different effects, including Toy Camera and Selective Colour.

Full HD Movie Recording with Stereo Sound

Get Full HD (1080p) filming on-demand, with a dedicated movie-record button which instantly switches from photos to video, and zooms in on the action with the 12x lens. The Record Pause function allows you to pause during filming, but when continued the camera will create a single movie file for smooth playback. With a built-in HDMI mini connector you can present your film debut on your HDTV[1].

Capture the Moment

The COOLPIX S6400 just keeps performing, with various creative modes to make your pictures come alive. Create 3D images that can be played back on 3D-capable TVs and computers, shoot dynamic panoramas in Easy Panorama 360°/180° mode, and capture sharp shots of the action with high-speed Continuous Shooting mode (up to 7fps).

Stay Connected

With full Eye-Fi X2 (or later) card compatibility, adding an Eye-fi card lets you transmit your digital photos and videos directly to your phone or personal computer, and then connect to the Internet to take advantage of Nikon’s photo-sharing service my Picturetown. This provides you with your own personal cloud storage, letting you store and share your photos and videos online, and post them on blogs or social networking sites.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cool pick. 24 Oct 2012
By Flickering Ember TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Red|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
For such a compact camera, there are a lot of features packed in. That said, it's totally user-friendly, intuitive and easy to use, even for beginners.

The 16 megapixel CMOS sensor works in collaboration with the EXPEED processor and allows you to take clear, sharp photographs in any level of light...from a sunny day to a dusky evening...from a concert to a fireworks display. It allows just the right level of light and there's less glare and red eye than previous, similar cameras I have used, such as the Nikon Coolpix S220 Digital Camera - Black (10.0MP, 3x Optical Zoom) 2.5 inch LCD which I thought was rather good when I originally bought it!!

You can also select the scene mode yourself from a choice of 20, although generally I didn't feel this was necessary as the camera does automatically adjust itself according to the light settings surrounding it. However, the macro facility was useful as was the ability to photograph documents/written black and white. Further to this is its own Intelligent auto-focus system, which allows the camera to choose the clearest focus for the subject matter. This works even if the subject matter isn't in the centre of the frame.

The inbuilt vibration reduction is really useful for example when taking photographs or filming on a moving train or dancing around at a concert, and together with the Anti-blur high ISO, it ensures you take steadier photos than you'd think possible given your own motion!

Also worth a mention is the panorama option, which when compared with the Panorama option on my iPhone 5 camera, delivers a much smoother picture which doesn't look so much like several pictures cut and pasted together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done Nikon... 20 Dec 2012
Colour Name:Red|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm not really much of a photographer - I travel a lot and take holiday snaps, and sometimes take photos of friends and family. For several years I've used a Nikon Coolpix with a lower specification, and I was delighted to get my hands on this superior model just before a holiday in India. For someone who just wants to carry a small camera where you can get away with just pointing and shooting, this camera really is perfection. It's so lovely not to have to change settings for anything - daytime photos are crisp and clear (and zooming is a cinch) and night-time flash photos are well lit and perfect. The video is HD quality + crisp even on a large screen, and the large viewing window seems to have a lot less shine in sunny conditions than other cameras I've used which is welcome. The filters and features are fun to play with, but I prefer to play with photos on my PC on return - the touch screen can be a little unresponsive, but making changes to pictures is pretty intuitive. The camera is light, small enough for pocket or handbag, but it feels and looks really sturdy. Must mention that SD card isn't included, but they're easily and cheaply available. I didn't recharge once during a fortnight's holiday (100+ pictures) and thought that was pretty impressive - and the plug in charger (to which you connect the camera) is light and easy to carry anyway. For its delivery on promise, this camera was five stars for me - well done Nikon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating... 10 May 2014
Colour Name:Blue|Verified Purchase
Recieved the camera and initially it appeared to be all OK. The picture quality was decent.
The not-so-responsive touch screen is annoying. A set of regular buttons would have been nicer ... I would like to know who at Nikon is doing the product research ... a regular button is also "touch" :-)

We took the camera on a two weeks trip and after the first week, the camera decided that it will not charge anymore. Quite useful. The other half of the trip we had to rely on our phones to take the pictures.

Disappointed is not the word I currently think of.

By Russell G. Pottinger VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Red|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm not 100% sure how to review this camera as it takes really good pictures, is small and has a good optical zoom on it, but there are some problems for me (that other people will probably not care about).

1st thing to note about the camera is how small and light it is. While thicker than a mobile phone it is smaller in footprint and will fit into your pocket easily. It is light enough that you don't really notice it and the battery seems to last for a significant period of time.

The pictures it takes right from zoomed out to zoomed in are bright and poppy, and it takes good indoor photos as well.

But i have issues with it:

Problem 1
The touch screen on the back is pretty poor. We are talking how phones used to be where you can take a few presses to get it to respond. Being used to the capacitive touch on my mobile, i think I would have preferred buttons.

Problem 2
Connectivity. If I take a picture on my mobile, when i get to a wifi area it uploads onto Dropbox and I can access it straight away. With this camera I need to use a cable, and it has to be its own Nikon cable as a standard micro usb connecter doesn't fit.

I see both of those things as the last gasp of old technology before things like the Samsung Galaxy Camera render it obsolete (although that specific one is double the price I forsee this causing big changes at the technology filters down).

However, if you don't care about connectivity or messing around with settings on the touch screen then you've got a good little point and shoot camera with 16MP sensor and 12x optical zoom, which is perfect for day to day use.
