Power In Your Pocket
Using a 20.1MP CCD sensor, this compact camera will surprise you with the pin-sharp shots it’s capable of. This way, you’ll be able to large-print your shots without distorting any of the precious detail. 
Furthermore, the 3200 ISO range delivers top performance in low-light settings, so your night shots will be super-clear.
Versatile NIKKOR Lens
Get right into the action without compromising quality with the lens’ 8x optical zoom. As you zoom in, shots can get more prone to hand-shake. But, Nikon have added in high-performance Vibration Reduction to keep your shots sharp even at full-zoom.
This lens has a rich 25-200mm angle-of-view, so you’ll take anything from close-up selfies to big group shots in delightful detail.
Easy, Long-Lasting Operation
Nikon’s A300 is designed to be used quickly and easily all-day. Explore a range of automatic modes like Scene auto selector, Target finding AF and Panorama assist so you can get the perfect settings for your environment at the click of a button.
Furthermore, this camera has a huge 240-shot battery life (from new), so you’ll be snapping for a whole day and maybe more before you have to plug it in.
HD Movies
In super-sharp HD 720p, you’ll make beautiful movies to show all your friends. Just hit the dedicated record button on the back to start rolling.
State-Of-The-Art Smart Features
With built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC, you’ll share your photos and movies wirelessly, in an instant.
As a SnapBridge compatible camera, it can be constantly connected to your smart phone or tablet and sync your shots as you take them. You can even control your A300 remotely from your phone.
Get Creative
Show your flair with the wealth of special effects this camera has to offer. Choose anything from an arty Mirror effect or eye-popping Selective Colour to a Nostalgic sepia tone or Fisheye effect.
Whichever you experiment with, you’ll have a ball.

Customer Reviews
Crisp and Light (Sounds like a Pizza!),
Delivered next day, well packed as always and nothing to suggest it was pre-owned! I inserted the battery and the Kingston 32GB SDHC Class 10 G2 SD10VG2/32GB memory card bought together with the camera (NB No Card is included) and put it to charge for a few hours. Then out into the garden to take some test shots. Results were excellent, only slight disappointment was no macro mode, but the telphoto lens at maximum length does allow reasonably close focussing. Its small size and light weight mean it is perfect to carry in a shirt pocket and I can see it getting a lot of use as I am beginning to find an SLR is too heavy and bulky to carry around.
