    38x optical zoom, 76x Dynamic Fine Zoom

    Capture candids effortlessly with the power of the 38x optical zoom telephoto lens with stunning detail and color produced by NIKKOR glass. Zooming in on the action with the 22.5–855 equivalent focal length can be further enhanced with Dynamic Fine Zoom doubling the camera's reach. Should you lose your subject, simply press the Snap–Back Zoom button to quickly jump out, reaquire your target and release zooming right back to the previous range. The comfortable grip provides a more stable purchase for the COOLPIX L840, and is bolstered by Vibration Reduction to nearly eliminate the slightest shake from blurring photos or videos.

    Nikon snapbridge

    Nikon SnapBrige wirelessly connects to your Android™ and Apple® smartphone or tablet via Wi–Fi & NFC for instant sharing of your favorite images to social networks. Use your mobile device to take control of the L840 for remote image capture, ideal for portraits or wildlife.

    3.0–inch 921,000–dot Tilt LCD

    The COOLPIX's large, 921,000 3–inch LCD display makes composing your shots or monitoring video recording easy to do. The screen tilts away from the digital camera for more pleasing low–angle shots, or high angles compositions above crowds and scrubbery.

    Simple, convenient operation

    The L840 instantly allows anyone to enjoy capturing scenic vistas, or nature videos with phenomenal results. For maximum point–and–shoot convenience, select Scene Auto Selector. It automatically optimizes the camera settings for each shot, no matter how challenging the situation. Enjoy the freedom of the moment, exactly as you capture it.

    Full HD 1080p videos with stereo sound

    If you want a compact camera that shoots stunning Full HD videos, the COOLPIX L840 delivers. Full HD 1080p means exceptional video quality. Record the action, then connect to an HDTV* and watch your videos come alive. A built–in mic records high–quality audio in stereo. Your videos will look and sound phenomenal. *Requires optional cable

    Flatter your friends and family

    Create beautiful photos of the people you care about. Smart Portrait System activates several features ideal for portraits, like Face Priority AF, Skin Softening, Blink Warning and more.

    Intelligent autofocus

    It's frustrating when a smartphone camera focuses on the wrong thing. With COOLPIX L840, Target Finding AF quickly determines your intended subject and puts the focus where it belongs—on your subject.

    Let the camera call the shots

    Easily match your situation to one of 19 Scene Modes like Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, Sunset and more, and enjoy effortless great shots. Or, choose Scene Auto Selector and let the camera choose for you

    Don't sweat a little camera shake

    Lens shift Vibration Reduction keeps the shot steadier, even if your hands are not. Say goodbye to blurry photos, shaky videos and tripods.
