A slim, pocketable point-and-shoot for everyday shooting, the COOLPIX A300 from Nikon features versatile imaging capabilities along with a convenient form factor. Revolving around a 20.1MP 1/2.3" CCD image sensor, the A300 produces high-resolution stills along with HD 720p video, and offers an extended sensitivity range up to ISO 3200 for working in low-light conditions. A NIKKOR 8x optical zoom covers a 25-200mm equivalent focal length range, and is benefitted by Hybrid VR to minimize the appearance of camera shake. Additionally, the camera also incorporates a 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor, as well as SnapBridge wireless connectivity for transferring your imagery to a smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi + NFC.

20.1MP CCD Sensor
Featuring a 20.1MP 1/2.3" CCD sensor, the A300 is capable of recording high-resolution still imagery as well as HD 720p video. The sensor provides a sensitivity range from ISO 80-1600, which can be extended to ISO 3200 for working in low-light conditions.
NIKKOR 8x Optical Zoom Lens
Spanning a wide-angle to telephoto reach, the NIKKOR 8x optical zoom lens covers a 25-200mm equivalent focal length range to benefit working in a wide variety of shooting conditions. This reach can be extended even further to 16x with Dynamic Fine Zoom for working with distant subjects. Benefiting this reach is Hybrid VR, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to three stops to help realize sharp imagery.
SnapBridge Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
Supporting a wealth of sharing and tagging possibilities, the A300 features built-in SnapBridge connectivity to permit seamless transferring of imagery to a mobile device. BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology enables communication between the camera and a smart device, and allows for automatic image transfers as you shoot. SnapBridge requires a one-time setup and also works in conjunction with Nikon Image Space for backing up files and sharing imagery, and can also tag transferred images with date, time, and location info for keeping track of your journey. Additionally, once linked, the mobile device can remotely trigger the shutter and display a live view image from the camera to enable working from a distance.

In addition to Bluetooth, Wi-Fi with NFC is also available, and allows for wirelessly sharing both full-resolution photos and movies to smartphones or tablets. SnapBridge will automatically switch between the two technologies for a seamless wireless workflow.
