The Nikon Coolpix 8400 is a digital camera announced September 16, 2004 succeeding the Nikon Coolpix 5400 . It is a high-end model among the brand's range of bridge cameras with eight megapixels, only below the Nikon Coolpix 8800 equipped with a more powerful zoom lens. Besides its pixel count, its main selling point is the very wide angle lens, equivalent to a 24 mm in 135 film format. Its only competitor at a comparable price is the Kodak EasyShare P880 who have a longer telephoto lens but is bigger and lacks a swivelling screen.
