Nikon Coolpix 8400 announcement clippings

With a range of 24-85mm (35mm equivalent), the COOLPIX 8400 offers exceptional wide-angle zoom capability, allowing you to capture a wide range of subjects from landscapes to portraits. The COOLPIX 8400 allows macro shooting from as close as 3cm (1.2 inches), enabling the user to fill the screen with small objects with incredible detail. Packing an impressive 8.0 megapixels, the COOLPIX 8400 has the ability to produce images with amazingly high resolution.

Furthermore, printing can be carried out without the need for a PC as the COOLPIX 8400 offers the direct print convenience of PictBridge. The COOLPIX 8400 is also a ?system? camera, offering a variety of optional lens converters and other accessories. Fast autofocus makes it easy to capture unexpected moments and the lightweight, high-strength magnesium body enables easy handling in all situations.

The addition of a 134,000-dot Vari-Angle TFT LCD monitor makes it easy to compose shots from above the head, from the waist or other imaginative angles. The camera is both easy to hold and visually attractive due to its Nikon D-SLR-consistent design which has been adopted from one created by famed industrial designer Giorgetto Giugiaro exclusively for Nikon.
