Nikon India has launched the series of KeyMission action and wearable cameras. They are designed to help users shape and share their missions, from the everyday to the extreme, and the stories behind them. Earlier this year, Nikon had announced the KeyMission 360 – a tough, wearable action camera capable of recording true 360° video in 4K UHD. Today, Nikon unveils two more cameras in its action series, the KeyMission 170 and the KeyMission 80.
The ability of the flagship KeyMission 360 to capture seamless 360° video in 4K UHD format changes the way people capture and share their experiences.
The KeyMission 170, which is shockproof and waterproof, captures dynamic 170° wide-angle 4K UHD videos and vivid images. With intuitive interfaces and simple controls, even first-time action camera users can record adventures effortlessly. Versatile shooting modes like Add Slow Motion, Superlapse Movie and Time-lapse Movie are available for creating dramatic scenes for any adventure.
The ultra-slim KeyMission 80 is a tough wearable camera designed for quick shooting of stills and movies, enabling users to record every moment of their experiences as it happens. Featuring an exclusively designed small NIKKOR lens, this compact camera enables capture of high quality images. It is equipped with a second camera with 4.9 million effective pixels and a LCD monitor for easy selfies.
SnapBridge 360/170 App is exclusive to KeyMission 360 and KeyMission 170, which enables camera remote shooting and movie editing, while KeyMission 80 supports the SnapBridge app. Both SnapBridge 360/170 app and SnapBridge app, allow the camera to be constantly connected to a smart device, providing a convenient and automatic transfer of photos from the action camera to the smart device.
Commenting on the launch of the KeyMission series, Kazuo Ninomiya, Managing Director, Nikon India Pvt. Ltd. said, “The KeyMission cameras enable users to retell their adventurous experiences with a distinctive approach. The series is a compelling combination of standout optical and imaging solution, smartly packed together in a seamless and smart device which offers connectivity on the go.

Sajjan Kumar, Senior Vice President – Corporate Sales & Strategy, Nikon India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Nikon KeyMission series is a revolutionary product range which will set a benchmark in consumer created content. Taking videos or stills with the KeyMission cameras will be an ongoing exploration and adventure. Photographers can now easily capture a high-quality 360° environment with the touch of a button, making the world of virtual reality accessible to everyone. We are delighted to offer this immersive experience to our consumers to seize all their special moments in clear and sharp 4K-UHD resolution like never before.”
Simultaneously, Nikon has introduced a wide range of optional mounts and accessories made to push the limit of the cameras across diverse activities. For hands-free shooting, Vented Handy Grip is also available to prevent the users’ body from being caught in the frame during handheld shooting. These versatile mounts and accessories will take the cameras through the toughest roads and scale the highest peaks.
