Capture breathtaking sights from afar and up close with the 16.0-megapixel L840, a compact and portable camera fitted with a 38x optical zoom. With a flexible 3-inch tilting monitor to shoot from various angles and an intuitively designed easy-to-hold grip, all you have to do is aim and shoot. It also comes with built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC*1 support that makes sharing all your precious moments with loved ones a breeze.


Capture the important details

With its 38x optical zoom (22.5mm - 855mm equivalent in 35mm format), 76x Dynamic Fine zoom*2 (approximately 1710mm equivalent in 35mm format), the L840 perfectly seizes every moment, from far or up-close. Instantly recapture subjects that were out of frame by switching from telephoto zoom to wide-angle viewing with the new Snap-Back Zoom function. Equipped with a high-performance NIKKOR lens, EXPEED C2 image-processing system and 16.0-megapixel backside illumination CMOS sensor, the L840 achieves superior quality pictures even in low light situations. It also features the new moon and bird-watching scene modes that complement super-telephoto zooming.


Never miss a shot

With the Pre-autofocus (AF) function, you will no longer have to worry about missing those critical decisive shots. The L840 automatically achieves sharp focus even during close-ups or in dimly lit situations. Taking brilliant photos is easy with the L840 as the Target-Finding AF fixates on to the main subject automatically as you frame the picture, while the Scene Auto Selector assesses your surroundings to select the most appropriate scene mode.

Sharing made effortless

Share your images easily with the built-in Wi-Fi® that enables instant connection with a touch of a button. You can also share photos by tapping your camera with an NFC-enabled*1 smart device. Simply download the free Wireless Mobile Utility App*3 on your iOS or Android device to transfer your images. When connected, you will also be able to see what your camera shoots through the smart device for fun selfies and interesting group photos.


Let your camera do the stretching

Experience greater freedom when shooting with an approximately 921k-dot, 3.0-inch wide-viewing-angle TFT LCD tilting monitor for better flexibility in shooting angles. The monitor is also designed with anti-reflection coating, anti-fingerprint acrylic coating, brightness adjustment, and Clear Color Display that ensure you have a clear view of the monitor at all times.


Reminisce your best moments

Replay your cherished moments in Full HD 1080p/60i format and stereo sound with the L840. Be your own director and craft memorable movies with the new Short Movie Show function that allows for several movie files to be recorded before being automatically combined into a 30-second movie.


Jazz up your photos

Bring your own personal touch with the Evolved Smart Portrait Mode that allows you to refine your photos during shooting. You can also look your best with the Glamour Retouch feature for editing photos during playback. Fun and new features that promise entertaining and interesting shots have also been added to the wide variety of retouch functions such as the mirror effect and Portrait (in colour or black and white).
