Product Overview

Nikon Coolpix A300 is an entry-level 1/2.3" compact camera. Introduced by Nikon in 2016, it comes with a 1/2.3" sensor with 20 MP (5152 x 3864) resolution.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day. It should be noted for having a 80 base ISO, which promises cleaner shots. The Coolpix A300's 1.1 fps burst rate limits its use for certain types of photography, but it is hardly something that most photographers should worry about.
Last but not least, the camera can focus quite close to the subject.
