Key Features

Take superb shots on the go with the slender and stylish COOLPIX A300. It’s small and light enough to slip in a pocket or bag, so you’re always ready to shoot close-ups of friends and family with its 8x optical/16x Dynamic Fine Zoom. You'll take share-worthy high resolution photos that you can share with family and friends using Nikon SnapBridge. The 20.1 megapixel CCD image sensor guarantees high-resolution images, while high-performance Vibration Reduction (VR) reduces camera shake, ensuring you only take sharp shots or smooth HD movies. Use Smart Portrait System as you shoot for perfect portraits, and Scene Auto Selector to automatically optimize camera settings.

This slim camera offers 8x optical zoom, and using Dynamic Fine Zoom you can increase zoom capability to 16x without compromising the high resolution. Optical VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to provide a steady picture at any zoom range. And with 4-Axis Hybrid VR, you can shoot beautifully steady movie clips even while walking.

Install Nikon's SnapBridge app on a compatible smartphone or tablet* and unlock exciting new capabilities with the COOLPIX A300. Built-in Wi-Fi®, NFC and Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) maintain a connection between the app and your camera, so each shot you take automatically transfers to your smartphone or tablet for sharing, editing with photo apps or uploading to your favorite sites. You can even use the SnapBridge app to control your camera remotely!

20.1 effective megapixels deliver detailed, high-resolution images. Each shot is taken with optimized settings thanks to Scene Auto Selector which chooses the appropriate mode from among 10 different scene modes. Subjects will be clearly in focus thanks to Target Finding AF which automatically detects your intended subject within the frame.

Get lots of “likes” by shooting in Smart Portrait System which lets you make your friends look even better than before or create a special mood in-camera before shooting, and even automatically take a picture when the subject smiles. Plus you’ll have 12 Glamour retouch effects to apply to already-shot images as well. If expansive scenery is your thing, use Panorama assist to stitch multiple shots together into a single panorama.

This stylishly slim camera slips in and out of your pocket or handbag without a snag. Its mobile design is quality-intensive down to the stylish details and color which are as unique as you.
