Life, Now Picture Perfect
The A300 captures stunningly sharp images with a 20.1-megapixel image sensor. Boasting an 8x optical zoom*1 with 16x Dynamic Fine Zoom*2, this versatile camera can even focus as close as 2cm from the subject in macro mode. Vibration Reduction minimises camera shake even when on the move. Scene Auto Selector picks the best settings, so you can simply focus on getting the shot you want.
The Smarter Way to Share
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 maintains constant connection with 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 the camera is switched off. It even automatically archives your pictures onto Nikon Image Space*3.
Memories, Now in HD
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 zoom*1. Thanks to the 4-axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction system, videos can now be shot with minimal camera shake.
A Touch of Fashionable Fun
Create up to 22 fresh new looks with a variety of retouching functions. The Glamour Retouch options such as skin softening and applied eye shadow can be applied to achieve your desired look for a glamorous night out, even if you are staying in.
Love It, Wear It
Weighing approximately 118g with its battery and memory card, this handy camera measures only 20.1mm in diameter (excluding projections) to fit comfortably in a jeans pocket or handbag. Its high quality aluminium exterior also makes the A300 perfect for a day out at the mall or on a hiking trail.
