Nikon COOLPIX S9400 | Capturing Your Memories in Breathtaking Clarity

To be honest, a DSLR does not make great arm candy and is hardly a statement piece for the summer. Heavy, bulky and most of the time in boring black, it can be such a tool. So while my friends get to carry clutches and pretty small handbags, I usually have with me my chunky camera bag (extra padded for protection) or bag pack- not exactly glamorous and frankly not the least ideal especially during formal occasions, traveling or simply just going out. But because of my passion for photography, lugging around my DSLR is a sacrifice I am willing to make.. most of the time.

For the other times however, I am still on the search for a compact that is able to fulfill the capabilities of my trusty Nikon D60, albeit impossible but a girl can dream…

So when Nikon debuted the 18.1 Megapixels Nikon COOLPIX S9400 along with a range of point-and-shoots in the market recently that came with VR image stabilization, a 25mm wide-angle lens, 18x Zoom and an offer to play with its features for a couple of weeks, I was psyched. Maybe there was a glimmer of hope after all…


While the S9400 does not allow shooting in manual mode or in RAW, the Auto mode does a relatively fine job as well. I brought this compact along to a couple of foodie outings, my family trip to Resorts World Sentosa, a media preview of Power 98’s new evening show and am pleased to share that it did perform up to expectations and far exceeded the usual performance of regular compacts.
