Product Description

Designed in 3 vibrant colours, the 20.1 Megapixel A300 features a high-quality exterior in a slim, pocket-friendly body. It comes with 8x Optical zoom1 and 16x Dynamic Fine Zoom2, capable of covering a wide angle of 25 mm. Also, stay connected with SnapBridge and instantly share your photos online.

The A300 captures stunningly sharp images with a 20.1 Megapixel image sensor. Boasting an 8x Optical zoom1 with 16x Dynamic Fine Zoom2, this versatile camera can even focus as close as 2 cm from the subject. Vibration Reduction minimises camera shake, while Scene Auto Selector picks the best settings.

Share your best shots with SnapBridge, a new feature that automatically downloads your images to your smart device via a constant Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection. BLE uses minimal power, so you can continue shooting and sharing without draining your batteries too quickly. SnapBridge also allows your smart device to access your camera, even when it’s switched off. It even automatically archives your pictures onto NIKON IMAGE SPACE

Save the best parts of your life in HD. The A300 records in 720/30p format and effortlessly photographs distant subjects with its 8x Optical zoom1. Thanks to the 4-axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction system, videos can now be shot without camera shake

Create up to 22 fresh looks with a variety of retouching functions. The Glamour Retouch options, such as skin softening and applied eye shadow, can achieve your desired look for a glamourous night out – even if you’re staying in.

Make your outfit pop with one of A300’s three stylish colours. Weighing only 118 g with its battery and memory card, this handy camera measures only 20.1 mm in diameter (excluding projections) to fit comfortably in your jeans or handbag. The high-quality aluminium exterior also makes the A300 perfect for a day’s shopping or a scenic hike.
