The A300 captures stunningly sharp images with a 20.1-megapixel image sensor.

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. Once SnapBridge application is installed, you can easily activate the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi*4 for wireless image transfer on compatible smart devices by using the SnapBridge application. 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.
SnapBridge is now available for download on Google Play™ for Android™. For iOS, SnapBridge will be available for download from the summer of 2016 on the App Store®.
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.
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 glamourous night out, even if you are staying in.
Make your outfit pop with one of the A300’s five stylish colours. 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.

1. Key features
This small and slim camera offers 8x optical zoom, and using Dynamic Fine Zoom you can increase zoom capability to 16x* without compromising the high resolution. Optical VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to provide a steady picture at any zoom range. And with 4-Axis Hybrid VR, you can shoot beautifully steady movie clips even while walking or from a moving vehicle. *Magnification of Dynamic Fine Zoom is calculated from the maximum wide-angle position of optical zoom.
SnapBridge eliminates the barrier between your camera and smart device, through a combination of Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) technology and a dedicated app.* In addition to automatic picture transfer from camera to smart device thanks to the constant connection between the two devices, it also offers free, unlimited upload of thumbnails on the NIKON IMAGE SPACE cloud service.** It’s possible to embed location, date/time, and two pieces of credit information (i.e. copyright, comments, text and stamps). Plus, support for Wi-Fi® and NFC further expands wireless connectivity. Shoot yourself from a distance or get into group shots with camera remote control, then wirelessly share your images right away. *Using this service requires installing the app SnapBridge app to the smart device prior to use. This can be downloaded from the application store of each smart device (free). **Using this service requires customer registration (free).

This stylishly slim camera slips in and out of your pocket or handbag without a snag. Its mobile design is quality-intensive down to the fine details. Available in an eye-catching selection of colors* and décor to get you noticed. *Color availability may vary according to region.
20.1 effective megapixels* deliver detailed, high-resolution images. Each shot is taken with optimized settings thanks to Scene auto selector which chooses the appropriate mode from among 10 different scene modes. Subjects will be clearly in focus since Target finding AF automatically detects your intended subject within the frame. Any function is easier to use because of the self-explanatory Help display. *Image processing may reduce the number of effective pixels.
Get lots of “likes” by shooting in Smart portrait mode; it lets you adjust facial colorations or create a special mood in-camera before shooting, and even automatically take a picture when the subject smiles. Plus you’ll have 12 Glamour retouch effects to apply to already-shot images as well. If expansive scenery is your thing, use Panorama assist to stitch multiple shots together into a single panorama.
