Nikon Coolpix L840 Point & Shoot Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Nikon Coolpix L840 Point and Shoot camera offers a super 38x optical zoom lens. At the wide-angle end, lies a 22.5mm-equivalent lens position that extends to a whopping 855mm at the telephoto end. The camera has incorporated a lens-based vibration reduction function to avoid camera shakes and hence blurry images. There is a useful snap-back button that instantly zooms out should you lose the sight of your subject. And after catching your subject again in the frame, you can zoom back in. NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity features allow for easy pairing of the camera with smart devices, so that images and videos can be shared easily.

Apart from these features, L840 is almost the same as L830. Both the cameras share the same 16MP resolution sensor. The new model extends ISO sensitivity range by up to ISO6400. The camera can record full HD video along with stereo sound and a burst mode speed of 7.4fps at the same resolution. The auto scene mode with an intelligent scene-detection capability gets the best out of a given frame. There are nine creative filters and an auto panorama mode. Overall, this bridge camera is good for people who want to become professional photographers.

Design and Build Quality

Nikon Coolpix L840 typically holds the design of a bridge camera. It measures 113.5mm x 78.3mm x 96.0mm, making it a bit larger than the camera it replaces but is still compact as per the class it belongs too. It weighs 538 grams and is a ready to shoot camera driven by four alkaline batteries. With its bulky design, L840 sports a large rubber grip with a thumb rest giving enough space for a good grip. People with large fingers may find that gap in between the lens barrel and the hand grip, narrow by a small measure.

Those who have used a compact camera before will easily find themselves familiar to L840. The buttons to have found a new place and not so common are; Wi-Fi that instantly enables wireless hotspot of the camera and zoom controls that are mounted on the side. The zoom lens barrel has a rocker on it, which runs slow for you to precisely focus on what you need in the frame. A special button at the front activates the snap-back feature that instantly brings you back to wide-angle end of the lens. Nikon still hasn't made an effort to add an electronic viewfinder.

Focus and Face Detection

Nikon Coolpix L840 has an impressive autofocus speed at close range and under good light. It does fall slow a bit when you zoom in more and more, same is the case of low light. The overall focusing can be said to be good enough for quick use. The lens can focus by 1cm from the subject for good macro images. The focusing modes include; Autofocus, Manual, Face Detection, AF Tracking and Centre.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Nikon Coolpix L840 offers a 38x optical zoom lens covering a focal length range of 22.5mm at the wide-angle end to 855mm at the telephoto end. The maximum aperture range is from f/6.5 to f/3. The lens-based vibration reduction helps in stabilizing the images. The lens produces a bit of barrel distortion at the full wide-angle end but not at the full telephoto end. At the corners of the frame, sharpness looks notably reduced. But the same is not so apparent when observed in real-world shooting. Purple fringing and chromatic aberration can be observed easily when high-contrast boundaries come into the frame. These defects can be spotted even up to 50 percent of the image size.

Screen and Menus

Nikon Coolpix L840 offers a 3-inch diagonally wide high-resolution screen with 921k-dots and wide viewing angles. The screen can be tilted down or up by 90 degrees for easy low and high shot composition. It can also be rotated by 180 degrees for selfies. The layout for the menu system is good enough for easy comprehension.


Nikon Coolpix L840 comes with the power support of four AA batteries, which isn't enough given the class it belongs to. The good part is that these batteries can be replaced once they go flat and thus, the potential of the battery life remains high. Nikon claims that these batteries together can provide a shot count of 590 shots while premium Lithium batteries can manage to give double the number as shot count.

Video Mode

Nikon Coolpix L840 can record full HD videos at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels along with stereo sound recording. One can use the optical zoom while recording videos along with the optical image stabilization feature. The frame rate for recording videos are 25p, 50i, 30 and 60fps.


Nikon Coolpix L840 comes with a 1/2.3 inch sized 16MP CMOS sensor with 4608 units of pixels width and 3456 units of pixels height, respectively. The aspect ratios used here are 4:3, 16:9 and 1:1. The ISO noise settings go up to ISO6400. L840 shoots quite well in low-light conditions up to the 800ISO mark. Noise can be seen at this mark but there is enough detail to accept the images. At ISO1600, the noise becomes worse with a lot of loss in detail. At ISO3200, color specking appears and the noise becomes dominant. At ISO6400, due to the high noise and almost no detail, photography is not recommended.


  • Nikon Coolpix L840 is an easy to use bridge camera
  • It is compact in its class
  • Comes with high-resolution, tiltable screen
  • Snap-back features allows you to zoom put instantly
  • NFC and in-built Wi-Fi expand connectivity
  • Videos can be recorded in full HD resolution


  • Nikon Coolpix L840 is priced high
  • The camera uses AA batteries
  • There is no electronic viewfinder
  • There is nothing about the image quality
  • Other cameras in same class offer more features in less price

Perfect Point and Perfect Shoot
by Avit Kori on 2015-06-18

With a limited Budget of 15k I started hunting for a advanced point and shoot
camera that will fufill my basic need for casual photography.
After a lot of research I finalized on this model.

With 38x optical zoom and added WI-FI/NFC functionality this seems a
worthy succesor to the L830. I haven't used any of the previous models, so
won't compare it with them.

Lets begin with
Accesories: While the product description does not mention it, the box is
loaded with tons of accesories that include: 4 Duracell batteries, 4
Rechargable ni-mh battries, 4x battery charger from Nikon, TV-out cable, USB cable, 8GB
class 10 SDHC card, lens cap with attachment, Shoulder strap and user manual.
The seller offered a HDMI cable and decent camera pouch (nikon soft-3 model) alongside.
Thats almost 3k worth of goodies.

Build quality and Form factor: I ordered the red one and it looks pretty
decent. The surface is however prone to finger prints. The camera weighs 538g
and is quite bulky to hold.However it provide a firm rubberised grip. There
are two zoming options. One place next to the shutter button and another on
the lens.There is a dedicated switch for wi-fi and video mode.The
HDMI/TV-out/USB Inouts are covered for protection.
The Wifi works with Android and Iphones and requires you to download the mobile
camera utility to access the camera hotspot.
The LCD clarity is crisp and clear with a distinct resolution of 921k dots.
The LCD tilt feature is good for capturing floor and ceiling pictures without
tilting your head. However you cannot use it for selfies.

Battery backup: While this model does not come with rechargable lithium
batteries, the option for 4 AA batteries always has its advantages of not having to
wait for recharging the batteries when they run out of juice. It's always
easier to carry 4 spare cells and replace them.Nikon claims to shoot a
whopping 590 images with this backup. I obvioulsy haven't tested this though.
A noticable con is the battery compartment lid is a tedious to close and open.
It's not a part that can survive a long run with rough use.

Image quality and Zoom: The Image quality at this price point is pretty decent but not amazing.
The zoom works well, but with higher zoom levels you will start seeing loss in
the quality. Again the low-light captures tend to have a lot of noise. Which I
think is common with most camera in this range. It has support for most
of the shooting modes(ex. Sports, Fireworks, Bird watch etc. ). There is a shortcut
for the macro mode as well.It also support 1080p recording upto 60p.
I wish flipkart would let me share some pics from the camera.

So finally to sum it all this camera is definately a worthy buy at this price point.

I don't know
by Sudeep Kumar on 2015-07-23

I bought this product from this site initially it was good i got all the accessories promised in the site but the thing is lens strap is missing. That is not a n issue after a few days i went to my friend birthday party i've started takin' pic's after over 10-15 snaps...the camera it got stopped and i don't know i'am thinking that i got a duplicate product before you sell any product flipkart you have to test the product that is bad experience to me so thank god that i'am having a return option ...i'am not satisfied with this product..from flipkart
