Nikon Coolpix S6400

Despite being very small the Nikon Coolpix S6400 has a 12x zoom lens. This makes this camera a good choice if you are looking for a digital camera you can slip into a pocket, but you would like more zoom than a more basic digital camera offers.

The other big attraction of the Coolpix S6400 is likely to be the fact that all the settings are changed through the touch sensitive LCD screen. This includes being able to touch the point on the screen where you would like the camera to focus. The screen is 3 inches in size.

Other features include 16 megapixels. Nikon have equipped this camera with Image Stabilisation to help minimise any unwanted blur in your photos. There are also 20 scene modes available. When you select a scene mode to suit the type of photo you are about to take it helps the camera to identify the optimum settings to use to get the best results.

The movie mode is advanced as well. You can shoot Full High Definition Movies. Stereo sound can be recorded to accompany your video footage.

A feature that is becoming more widely available is the ability to produce panoramic photos. The Coolpix S6400 gives you the option to create either 180 degree or 360 degree panoramas.
