Product information
Take great photos while you're on holiday or out with friends using the Nikon COOLPIX A10 Compact Camera, finished in red and featuring an easy-to-use touchscreen.

It weighs just 160 g and is small enough to carry in a pocket or bag - two AA batteries provide the power you need and easy to find wherever you're travelling.

Snap high-quality images in no time

It's simple and fun to use the COOLPIX A10 thanks to its comfortable grip and intuitive button configuration. All your memories will be preserved in high quality thanks to a powerful 16.1 megapixel image sensor.

Take memorable pictures of faces, unique moments and awesome group shots with NIKKOR 5x optical zoom lens – it's versatile enough for wide-angle group shots or closely zoomed images of faraway subjects.

Sharp focus for your photos

Electronic image stabilisation means you don't have to worry about blurred images, and moving subjects like kids and pets stay sharp with motion blur reduction to compensate for camera shake and subject movement.

Clearer framing

Get the shot you want using the A10's 6.7 cm/2.7” LCD monitor, which makes it simple to frame scenes. You'll be able to choose the most fitting scene mode using the scene auto selector – pick from 15 options including Landscape, Night portrait or Close-up.

These modes optimise camera settings to attain the ideal exposure, helping you capture great shots even in challenging circumstances.

Shoots HD videos

The Nikon COOLPIX A10 lets you capture great moments with friends and family in smooth HD movies. At the touch of a button you'll be able to flip into video recording mode, so you've got more than one way to capture all the action.

The large and bright LCD monitor makes framing easy when shooting movies and images, and gives a clear view for reviewing in playback.

Add some special effects

With a range of integrated effects on board, the COOLPIX A10 lets you create more expressive and unique photos.

Use the Mirror effect to display your subject and their mirror image in one shot, or Selective colour to add a bright note of colour to a black and white image. Achieve a moody feel in your shots with High-contrast monochrome.

If you want to alter the appearance of something you've just captured, you can use quick effects including Fisheye, Miniature effect, Toy camera effect and Cross process for fun, instant results.

Made for beautiful portraiture

For great close-ups of people, the automatic Smart portrait system makes flattering portraits easily achievable.

When a subject smiles, the Smile timer recognises it and takes a shot, while Blink proof warns if it detects blinking as the shutter is released – this lets you immediately re-take it without having to check the photo.

The Skin softening effect includes enhanced facial detection and better skin tone exposure control for perfect portraits.

Take great-looking photos easily with the Nikon COOLPIX A10 Compact Camera.
