Digital Camera Description

The Nikon Coolpix A300 is a Ultra-Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 20 Megapixels CCD sensor offers an ISO 80-3200 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 80-3200. With 20 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to 22" x 16" at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Nikon Coolpix A300 to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a hybrid shutter that can expose for 1/500 to 1s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/500, fast action cannot be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.

Nikon Coolpix A300

The Nikon Coolpix A300 features a 99-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame.

This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Nikon Coolpix A300 and no provision to add one.
