Nikon COOLPIX A1000 Digital Camera

The sleek, compact and lightweight Nikon COOLPIX A1000 Camera boasts 35x optical zoom to capture scenes near, far and everything in between. With a 16MP CMOS sensor, ISO sensitivity range of 100-6400 and 4K ultra HD video, the COOLPIX A1000 will capture photos and videos that are brilliantly sharp and detailed. Optical vibration reduction ensures shots without blur and the lens features a snap-back zoom button. If you lose sight of your subject, simply press the snap-back zoom button to quickly relocate, or customize this button to activate manual focus, aperture, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation or white balance.

Super Sharp Shots

With an effective pixel count of 16.0MP, the Nikon COOLPIX produces super sharp, high quality images with a CMOS sensor that is capable of collecting sufficient light, even in low light conditions. The camera boasts a high performance ISO sensitivity range of 100-6400 and supports RAW recording, allowing you to create magnificent photographs without compromising image quality. Finally, to counteract camera shake, the COOLPIX A1000 is equipped with a vibration reduction (VR) function, ensuring images that are sharp and shake free, even in dimly lit scenes.

Bring Out the Details

Nikon's Active D-Lighting enhances both still shots and videos to bring out the details in the shadows and highlights of the image that can often be lost. This can be extra useful when shooting in bright sunlight, or any heavily backlit subjects. The camera will record the image exactly the way you see it, without the losing any details or requiring any additional editing.

Creative Shooting Modes

Get creative and select from five pre-set modes with four different effects applies, for a total of 20 image options. The command dial at the top of the camera allows you to quickly access four exposure modes (P/S/A/M) and other manual controls. With a quick start up, a shortened lag time and a responsive autofocus, you can get the shots you want, fast.

User Friendly Viewing

The COOLPIX A1000 is equipped with an electronic viewfinder that boasts a sensor that automatically switches the display between viewfinder and LCD as the camera is lowered and raised to the eye. This, combined the 3-inch tilting touch screen monitor, allows you to capture the shot from the angle you need without pressing any buttons to adjust the view.

Stay Connected

Keep a constant connection between your camera and smart device utilizing the SnapBride app, the camera’s built in Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth technology. Captured images can be transferred from your camera to your smart device automatically, and the app supports a number of additional features including the ability to add copyright information and comments to images, and to automatically sync the date, time and location information with that of the device. You can also take still shots remotely, directly from the SnapBridge app, with a real-time display of the view from the camera’s lens on the smart device's screen.
