Shed new light on your creativity with the fastest lens in a Nikon Coolpix camera with its new, wide angle, f/1.8 maximum aperture Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens.

The fastest lens ever in a Nikon Coolpix.

The Coolpix P300 digital camera does justice to your photographic talents with a 4.2x wide angle, F1.8 maximum aperture NIKKOR glass lens. This is the fastest lens Nikon has ever designed into a Coolpix camera—it offers a 24-100mm optical zoom range and impressive telephoto performance for razor-sharp images. Plus, its maximum aperture of F1.8 assures exceptional low-light results and minimum depth of field. This outstanding lens will showcase your skills whether you’re shooting portraits, panoramas, weddings, real estate, products, publicity stills, or any other challenging compositions—and will do so with still images or Full HD (1080p) movies. Simply put, this high-performance lens catches detailed images while displaying Nikon’s proud tradition of producing precision camera optics.

Manual control for the serious photographer.

The Coolpix P300 allows photographers to stretch their creative limits with an impressive range of manual control. There’s a Mode Dial for quick and convenient control over select settings, including shutter/aperture/programmed and manual exposure. Exposure Bracketing automatically brackets exposure for three shots. And the ISO can be set as high as 3200 at full resolution to control image quality in low-light conditions or when shooting fast moving subjects. The Coolpix P300 also features several new in-camera special effects, including High-Contrast Monochrome for sophisticated black and white shots. Nostalgic Sepia adds character and mood or creates shots with an antiqued look. In-camera editing functions such as Quick Retouch, and active D-Lighting restore detail and contrast. This camera comes with several filter effects like Painting, Fisheye, Miniature, and Cross Screen. You can also control

Returned the LX5 & S95…kept the P300 Over the last couple of weeks I’ve bought all three, returned the Canon

Excellent low-light pictures and HD video! Note: this review is for the layman–who wants to eventually learn to use manual features–but ends up using only auto-mod, so all you pros please don’t make too much fun of me.

If video as well as stills are important to you “Should I buy this camera?” is like asking “Should I buy this car?” The answer to both questions is: It depends on what’s most important to you. For me, I was looking for a point-and-shoot that takes good HD video as well as good still photos, and is reasonably small, light and affordable. I already have a DSLR, and wanted a camera to complement that — one I could slip in a pocket and take to the beach or an evening out without having to worry about it.
