I note that the last user review for this wonderful little camera was way back in 2005. I purchased my CP8400 on the 8th December 2004 and have never regretted it. As so many have commented, the 24mm wide end of the zoom (24 ~ 85) was the deal clincher. Far too many so-called prosumer (or mid-range) digital cameras start at 28mm : not good enough. The lens is pin-sharp and this combined with excellent metering makes it (even today seven years later !) a match for my Panasonic G1 with the ...

Very good camera. Almost the only one, still today, to offer wide angle coverage in 4:3 mode with RAW capture. Good lens. I use it as a complement to my two expert/pro DSLR when I want to travel light. Highly recommended for landscape photography with good light. Can be use to shoot inside when used with an external flash (accept all compatible Nikon flashguns, including Metz fitted with a proper adaptor). Problems: Noise slightly visible at 50 ISO, can not be use at high ISO settings. Slow ...

Das ist die Nikon für anspruchsvolle Familien- und Reiseaufnahmen!!!! Klein, leicht und intuitiv zu bedienen (wenn man wie ich über Jahrzehnte eine Nikon FE2 benutzt hat). Hervorragend der interne und der externe iTTL-Blitz! Sucher und (kleiner) schwenkbarer Monitor. Idiotensicher zu bedienen und individuell anzupassen, wenn man weiß, was man erreichen will. 28 mm Weitwinkel ist beachtlich (auch beim Blümchenfoto), aber jenseits der 85mm (=Portrait) fehlt's an Brennweite. Ich habe ...

I’m Italian, I hope my English will be understandable. I bought the 8400 mainly for the 24mm equivalent lens since I believe that in the street photograph is much more useful a wide-angle lens rather than a tele. My cameras (digital and film) are Canon and Leica M and this was the first Nikon I ever had. The first thing that I have to say is that Canon and Leica seem to be designed by photographer or, at least, from people that know the needs of a photographer. Nikon is much more similar to a ...

Other than viewfinder/LCD/WYSIWYG issues below, I love the camera and love the photos. The extra wide angle sets you way back, but makes for some dramatic hassle free shots. Great for limited space spots and/or interior shots. Also great for group photos. Recovery is a bit slow. Recently reduced price and photo quality make this a super buy. I absolutely love the remote control operated self-timer. Great for family gatherings or getting yourself in the vacation photos. Problems: Am I ...
