About this deal

The flash itself is a pop-up design as you’d find on a typical DSLR and needs to be manually ejected using a release button next to your left hand. This is quite useful as when the flash is down there’s no chance it’ll fire when you’re not expecting it. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H400 is a new superzoom compact camera with a incredible 63x zoom lens. The Sony H400 also features a 20 megapixel CCD sensor, 720p HD video with stereo sound, 3-inch screen, electronic viewfinder and a range of manual shooting modes.

Nikon has dropped the Hybrid VR mode which on the earlier L830 combined optical stabilisation with in-camera post processing to digitally remove any blurring that remained. Motion detection, which automatically raised the ISO sensitivity to enable selection of a faster shutter speed when either subject movement was detected or there was a risk of camera shake is also absent on the new model.

The pop-up flash on the L840 has four settings: Auto, Auto with red-eye reduction, Fill flash & Slow sync. Shooting a white surface from a distance of 1.5m shows the flash provides even illumination with the lens zoomed in, though some minor vignetting is visible in the wide-angle shot.

This looks like an across the board decision from Nikon which has done the same thing on its S9900 compact super-zoom and I think it’s a mistake. Slow motion HD video is a popular feature and to for Nikon to drop it while retaining the double speed option is, frankly, a bit baffling. About the only saving grace is that there’s a low resolution slomo mode. I should also point out that neither the PowerShot SX530 HS nor the SX410 IS has any kind of slow motion video feature. The Nikon Coolpix L840 is a digital camera that is designed to capture high-quality photographs. It features a powerful zoom lens, allowing users to capture detailed images from a distance. The camera is equipped with a 16-megapixel sensor, which ensures sharpness and clarity in every shot.At this point you might be thinking that the COOLPIX L840’s movie features are ok, but basically the same as those on the earlier L830 minus a couple of slow motion modes. That would be true were it not for the introduction of the Short movie show feature. This works in a very similar way to the Hybrid movie mode (formerly Movie Digest) found on Canon compacts and records a set number of clips of a couple of seconds of 1080 / 25p / 30p footage which are then assembled in-camera into a longer movie.

Above left: 100% crop, 4-152mm at 152mm, 1/50, 125 ISO, VR off. Above right: 100% crop, 4-152mm at 152mm, 1/50, 125 ISO, VR on. To test the COOLPIX L830’s stabilisation I set it to Auto exposure mode, zoomed the lens to its maximum telephoto setting and took a series of shots in deteriorating light at progressively slower shutter speeds, first with Vibration reduction set to off and then with it on. As you can see from the crops above, the COOLPIX L840 can produce blur-free shots down to 1/50th at the maximum zoom range, four stops slower than the photographer’s ‘one over the focal length’ dictum suggests is safe.

Whether the flash is set to standard Auto mode or Auto with red-eye reduction, the camera successfully avoids any trace of red-eye.

LR6/L40 (AA-size) alkaline batteries (x4), Lens Cap LC-CP31 (with cord), USB Cable UC-E16, Camera StrapThere’s no doubt that the Nikon Coolpix L840 is a very easy camera to use and produces pleasing photos. Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC pairing is a welcome upgrade from the L830, and the increased zoom reach adds extra versatility. But is this enough? The Nikon COOLPIX L840 is a super-zoom with a 38x optical zoom lens and a 16 Megapixel CMOS sensor. Launched in February 2015, it’s an update to the hugely popular COOLPIX L830 which was launched a year earlier and remains in the COOLPIX line-up for now. The new model extends the zoom range from 34x to 38x with all of the extra zoom power at the telephoto end providing an equivalent range of 22.5mm to 855mm.

The Nikon Coolpix L840 has seven sensitivity settings ranging from ISO125 to ISO6400 at full resolution. Not only is the control layout almost identical to a typical point and shoot compact camera; the Nikon Coolpix L840’s chunky form also adds to its ease of use. Although the gap between the hand grip and lens barrel may be slightly narrow for some, the grippy rubber coating makes the camera feel secure in the hand and there’s a decent-sized rear thumb rest, too.
