The Coolpix 5400 produces still images up to 2592 x 1944 pixels which yield photo-quality prints up to 16 x 20-inches and larger. The camera is very robust with minimal shutter lag and a high-speed autofocus. The enhanced continuous shooting mode captures up to 7 full-size images at the rate of 3 frames per second. And a new 5 shot buffer mode lets you capture the last five images of any action sequence thanks to a 64MB buffer. This buffer is also used to allow for up to 70 seconds of 640 x 480 VGA resolution motion video with audio to be recorded. Smaller 320 x 240 resolution movies can be recorded for up to 180 seconds and there is a new time-lapse movie mode as well.
The Coolpix 5400 can satisfy the needs of novice to experienced photographers with a full range of exposure modes. The AUTO mode makes the camera function like a simple Point-n-Shoot so anybody can take great pictures right away. When you want more control over the process just turn the mode dial and choose from Program AE, Shutter or Aperture priority, Manual or one of 15 pre-programmed Scene modes. Nikon's 256-segment matrix metering insures properly exposed images with selectable Center-Weighted, Spot and Spot AF metering options. Adjustable ISO sensitivity from 50 to 400, white balance options, automatic or manually selected focus points, 7 mode flash with hot shoe for Nikon speedlights, optional telephoto, wide angle and fisheye adapter lenses and remote control.
The Nikon Coolpix 5400's enhanced, fully-articulating 1.5-inch color LCD allows the photographer to shoot at virtually any angle in order to get the best shot. The LCD is also optimized for easy viewing in bright sunlight.
