Feeling the need for speed? Nikon's Coolpix P300 Digital Camera (Black) is here to help. It has one of the fastest lenses around--an f/1.8-f/4.9 24-100mm (equivalent in 35mm format) 4.2x zoom lens for great low-light results and shallow depth of field. With a top shutter speed of 1/2000 second, ultra-fast start-up, quick autofocus, 8fps continuous shooting capability, and sensitivity up to 3200 ISO, the P300 is a real speed demon.
A 12.2MP CMOS sensor, a bright, very high resolution (921K dots) TFT LCD monitor and 1080p full HD video puts the P300 into an elite league, one loaded with advanced features. Advanced Night Landscape and Advanced Night Portrait modes, for example, that rapidly shoot and combine several images to produce one sharp, beautiful photo in very dim light. Four-way VR image stabilization, Motion Detection, Best Shot Selector and D-Lighting all help you produce gorgeous pictures under even the most difficult lighting conditions.
Special effects such as Fisheye, Miniature, Painting, and Easy Panorama expand your creative possibilities. And the Smart Portrait System will catch a subject's smile every time, while warning you when your subject blinks, and will correct for redeye automatically while shooting. You can take full control of all the settings (with PASM), or use Programmed Auto for optimal settings, automatically. Take a P300 for a quick spin, and you'll want to take it home.
