Re: Nikon Coolpix 8400

Darlene, You certainly own a host of cameras !

Pleased to learn that you rate the 8800 so highly. My 8400 leads a quieter life now that I use a Panasonic-G1 with a 20mm f1.7 prime (pancake lens) as its "workabout" optic most of the time. I still haul it out however, when I need wide-angle beyond the run of the mill 28mm.

The main reason for my buying it, back in 2004, was its extremely useful zoom range: 24 ~ 85mm equivalent. I wonder why Nikon don't bring out a versatile compact with a wider end than the ubiquitous 28 ?

The looming problem for me of course is the ageing EN-EL7 battery used by the 8400. I managed to buy a spare from B&H back in 2007 but, foolishly, lost it a year later.

Any idea where one could source an EN-EL7 thesedays ?
