Super Zoom

Taking you from wide-angle group shots to telephoto close-ups in an instant the far-reaching NIKKOR ED glass 18x optical zoom lens has an incredibly versatile focal-length range. Covering wide-angle 25mm to super-telephoto 450mm[1] you’ll be astounded by how much zoom fits into this slimline body, and that’s not all. The imaging power of the back-illuminated 18-MP CMOS sensor and the EXPEED C2 processor work together to deliver clear shots even in low light conditions.

Explore the Possibilities

Whether you prefer to take full advantage of the auto-mode function or use the many effects and filters to suit your shooting conditions, you will enjoy producing fantastic photographs and movies with the COOLPIX S9400. HDR (High Dynamic Range) controls overexposure and underexposure to render a well-balanced, natural image with little noise and with an extended range of tones. The in-camera Smart Portrait System includes features which automatically retouch and enhance your photos. Smile Timer takes the shot when your subject smiles, and Red-Eye Fix corrects false eye colour resulting from flash photography. Blink Proof takes two shots and keeps the one in which the subject’s eyes are more open. It even warns you if it saved a picture in which your subject’s eyes may have been closed. And from 19 Scene Modes you can choose to create 3D images that can be played back on 3D-capable TVs and computers, or shoot dynamic panoramas either vertically or horizontally across a scene using Easy Panorama 360°/180° mode.

In Glamour Retouch you can apply features such as Brighten faces, Hide eye bags, Whiten teeth and Redden cheeks which help create more flattering portraits. And with Quick Effects you can select from a wide range of different creative effects like Selective Colour which converts your image to monochrome and then adds a splash of colour to the area of your choice, or Cross Screen which adds a starry effect to bright objects.

4.0 out of 5 stars S9400 first impressions 1 Oct 2013
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
Cracking little camera; aesthetically pleasing; sturdy build; comfortable to hold and use; clear, sharp LCD; rapid startup; easy to setup without the manual. Will be a lot lighter and easier to lug around, than my Canon EOS450D. Only one minor annoyance.....it is necessary to adjust your left hand grip to utilise the pop-up flash. One more thing, but not a fault of the camera...Amazon lowered the price by £10 AFTER I took delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Impression 13 Mar 2013
Colour Name:Red|Verified Purchase
Received my Camera yesterday so this is my first impression.Looks good and feels good + it fits into the bag I had for my previous Pocket camera.
The controls all seem quite standard and easy to use and I was able to turn it on and take some sample pictures without reading any instructions.I was greatly impressed with the quality of the on screen display and the images when transfered to computer with the enclosed USB cable.I also connected the camera to my TV with the enclosed cables and the images were perfect.I have seen reviews where people have a negative comment about the flash popping up where you hold the camera but to be honest I have no problem as I turned the auto flash off so it does not pop up and the images are sharp and clear without it.Obviously you can easily turn flash on as and when required so you will be aware it is going to pop up. I read the instruction booklet that comes with it but to be honest it only gives the basic functions so you will need to go to download a full manual from Nikon website. There you will find everything you need to know about the camera and how to use all the features. I would suggest that maybe you should download this manual before purchasing to fully apreciate all the features of this camera.
So far the only negatives I would mention is that it does not come with a mini HDMI cable which you would realy need in order to view video on TV.I was not able to see how to take 3D pictures from the manual that came with the camera but the info is in the Online manual.
In a nutshell a awesome camera loads of features no technical problems so far.
The HDMI cable is Micro D for connecting to the camera. If you wish to get additional battery just check the mHa as the cheap batteries are less mHa they are only 850 as oposed to 1050 .

4.0 out of 5 stars Very decent camera 17 Aug 2013
By Herpi
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Bought if for my husband before going for holiday so that he's not bored while I'm taking long exposure pictures on my SLR, I was worried he'll be bored watching me so I wanted him to have his own camera. I need to say I ended up using it few times. It's very light, stylish and very decent in low light. I was struggling to get the correct exposure in the aquarium with my SLR so I grabbed this compact and been using it for the rest of the day :-) I was impressed how well this little camera is coping... Even at higher ISO the quality of the pictures is very decent. I felt in few pictures that the colours are bit 'washed out' but I just set the White Balance to cloudy and it was much better. I have't had a compact for few years now but sometimes I feel they are all pretty much the same so I'm not sure whether I could get similar specs camera cheaper. But I'm glad I got this one, very happy with it so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 16 Sep 2013
By Si
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Only time for a short review but thought I'd say how impressed I am with this camera. Bought it as a more portable option to my 10 year old EOS300D. I've only used the Nikon once as I only received it at the weekend, taking a couple of dozen shots and a video, but it didn't take long for me to be sold on it. Solid build, very intuitive to use (basically out-of-the-box) and the picture quality is superb. Amazing that this sub £200 camera takes better photos (at 3X the size) than my old 300D which with the lens cost well over £1K. The 18X zoom is equally impressive and I was very surprised to be able to take clear, crisp photos at full zoom whilst being battered by a 50mph wind on the Lake District fells. The HD video function is superb - simple to use, quick to save and with excellent definition. The only possibly downside is that the lens shutter that covers the lens when the camera is off, slick as it is, looks like it could trap dust if used in sandy or dusty environments. I would have preferred some kind of fuller lens-cap-like coverage. All in all exceeded expectations so here's to hoping it proves as sturdy as first impressions suggest.

EDIT: The last sentence appears to be confirmed: accidentally dropped it onto concrete from head height and to add insult to injury kicked it about five feet. Aside from a couple of tiny paint chips on the lens surround it had no effect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Choice 23 July 2013
By david
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I am no camera buff but when it comes to sheer functionality this camera has it! It also has a good feel and seems to be robust

I find the features and the quality of pix to be excellent. The wide angle lens has a 'natural' field of view in that it takes the picture that you see.

The zoom also is very good and is more than enough.

I also like that you can create effects with the on board feature too.
