Product information
Great for holidays and casual snaps, the Nikon COOLPIX A300 Compact Camera will help you take memorable photos wherever you go.

High image quality in a slim frame

It's easy to carry the COOLPIX A300 in your hand, pocket or bag thanks to its lightweight 20.1 mm body.

Take colourful, detailed pictures of people, scenery and interesting objects with the camera's 20.1 megapixel sensor. Even in dim conditions, it's still capable of delivering high-resolution images. Preserve your memories on a hard drive or make enlargements to enjoy for years to come.

Zoom in closer

You'll be able to photograph distant or inaccessible subjects with the A300's 8x optical zoom. It's ideal when you're on the sidelines at a sports event, at a concert or sitting in a jeep on safari. Dynamic Fine Zoom extends the camera's zoom range to 16x to hone in on fine detail for wide-angle group shots, family events or unexpected moments on your travels.

Sharper images and easy shooting

Even at full zoom, you can be assured of more stable photos thanks to high-performance VR (Vibration Reduction). It counteracts camera shake so your shots stay sharp.

Your Nikon COOLPIX A300 makes shooting simpler with a range of automatic functions. Scene auto selector optimises settings for each scene, while Target finding AF focuses quickly so you can concentrate on shooting, and Panorama assist helps you easily record stunning scenery.

Shoot for longer and sync with your phone

You can capture around 240 shots per charge, so the A300 is a great companion when you don't want to miss a moment on your holidays.

Syncing shots with your smartphone or tablet is simplified with SnapBridge, which maintains a constant low-power connection with you device for easy sharing – control essential functions from your phone, maintain the correct time and date, and more.
