The Nikon Coolpix S6400 becomes the latest high-zoom snapper to be added to the manufacturer’s compact camera range, with a wide-angle 12x optical zoom.

Measuring 19.8mm, the Nikon Coolpix S6400 has a 16-megapixel-backlit CMOS sensor that - coupled with an ISO of up to 3200 - enables the handling of low-light and nighttime shots. 

Found on the back of the camera is a 3-inch touchscreen that can be used as a virtual snapper key. Press on the area of the screen that you wish the Nikon Coolpix S6400 to focus on and it adjusts accordingly before taking the photo automatically.
