  • Product DetailsBack to top
  • The Nikon COOLPIX L840 Bridge Camera lets you capture incredible quality photos even in difficult shooting conditions with Scene Auto Selector and point-and-shoot convenience.

    Intelligent zoom

    Whether you're shooting up close or from a distance, the 38 x optical zoom gives you crisp detail and sharper images. Extendable to 76 x in Dynamic Fine Zoom, you'll never have to miss the perfect picture again.

    The snap back zoom function is ideal for shooting moving subjects. If your subject suddenly moves out of frame, you can easily recapture them by pressing the one-touch button. The zoom will instantly take you back to a wide-angle focus.

    Versatile viewing

    There's no need to struggle in difficult light conditions, whether it's bright sunshine or dark indoor scenes, the bright 3.0” LCD screen tilts to suit your perspective. You can shoot from lower angles or over crowds without losing visibility.

    High-performance VR

    With highly effective vibration reduction, the COOLPIX L840 reduces blur by compensating for camera shake, even at full zoom.  You can capture crisp photos or smooth movies whatever action you're shooting.

    The intelligent Autofocus also quickly determines your intended subject and focuses the lens to give you precision and enhanced picture quality.

    Full HD video

    The COOLPIX L840 records in beautiful Full HD, for when a photo just isn't enough. Switch to video mode at the touch of a button, save stills during recording and delete footage during playback for quick and easy editing.

    The built-in mic also records high-quality audio, so you can enjoy videos that look and sound great.

    Built in WiFi

    It's easy to share your photos and video withbuilt-in WiFi and NFC support. Simply push the one-touch WiFi button or tap the L840 to your NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet and share with family and friends. You can also shoot remotely through your smartphone and upload the photos directly to your favourite social media site.

    Camera Ready

    It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

    If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

    With intelligent zoom, 19 scene modes and convenient WiFi connectivity, the Nikon COOLPIX L840 Bridge Camera is easy to use, without compromising on high performance.
