With a 38x optical zoom lens, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC, and a compact design, the black Nikon COOLPIX L840 Digital Camera will allow you to quickly and easily take high quality photos and share them with the world. At the center of the L840 is a 16-megapixel 1/2.3" CMOS image sensor which can produce quality high resolution photos as well as full HD 1080p video. Combine this with the NIKKOR 4-152mm f/3-6.5 38x optical zoom ED VR lens and you will have a powerful, versatile setup. The lens provides an impressive equivalent focal length of 22.5-855mm along with Vibration Reduction image stabilization that will ensure steady imagery, even when using the 76x Dynamic Fine Zoom setting to effectively double your focal length.

Handling of the long zoom camera is improved with a sturdy grip and multiple tactile controls, including a Snap-Back Zoom button. This feature allows you to quickly zoom out to find your subject and then immediately zoom back in with the release of the button. On the back of the camera you will find a 3.0" 921k-dot tilting LCD monitor which will assist with composition and image review during shooting. The tilting nature of the screen even allows for easily shooting low- and high-angle photographs.

Full HD 1080p video recording is possible at up to 30 fps with stereo sound via the built-in microphone. This can easily be shared by plugging the camera directly into an HDTV with the use of an optional cable. Other capabilities include ISOs up to 6400 and continuous shooting at up to 7.4 fps. For simple operation and control this camera has a Scene Auto Selector that will analyze the scene and optimizes the settings for each shot. Additionally, the L840 is compatible with Nikon's snapbridge system, enabling quick sharing of your photos by connecting to a mobile device. This system also enables wireless control over your camera through a smartphone or tablet.

16MP 1/2.3" CMOS Image Sensor

The 16MP 1/2.3" CMOS sensor is capable of recording high resolution imagery that is suitable for both online sharing as well as printing. Additionally, the sensor lends itself to producing HD 1080p video.

NIKKOR 38x Optical Zoom ED VR Lens

The 38x optical zoom provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 22.5-855mm, making this camera suitable for capturing almost any type of scene with ease. This lens benefits from the inclusion of Vibration Reduction for stills and videos, which works to reduce the appearance of camera shake and blur that can become increasingly notable when shooting in low-light conditions or at the telephoto end of the zoom range. Also, a 76x Dynamic Fine Zoom function effectively doubles the focal length of the lens.

Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity with NFC

Immediately share your photos or wirelessly take control of the L840 with the built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC. Compatible with Nikon's snapbridge system users can quickly tap to connect with a mobile device and start transferring images or remotely control your camera.

Other Features

  • Record full HD 1080p video with stereo sound at up to 30 fps
  • Scene Auto Selector for optimal settings in a variety of shooting conditions

question

Does the quality still good if you're taking pictures at night event like concerts?
Asked by: Jc E.
unfortunately I haven't taken any pictures at concerts or evening parties. I have taken nighttime beach pictures and pictures within shallow caves and it worked very well with and without the flash. The one downside to this camera is that with low light and active people around it struggles without the flash and leaves the people within the image blurry.
