Nikon Coolpix W300: A Great, Rugged Shot

The Nikon Coolpix W300 has it all. This underwater camera is compact, but packs a ton of features into its lightweight form.

This camera is capable of shooting 16 Megapixel images. Users can capture distant subjects by using the 5X optical zoom. Images will be clear, because of the contrast-detecting auto-focus. Flash is available on this camera.

For a point and shoot camera, the Coolpix W300 is versatile. Users can choose between 20 different modes, including Portrait, Night, Landscape, and auto. There is an option for in-camera image editing. Users can crop, retouch, apply filters, and reduce red eye.

Nikon designed the Coolpix W300 with durability in mind. This camera is depth rated to 30 meters/100 feet. The waterproof design also protects the charging ports and battery from dust. It is tested to shockproof standards that make it suitable to survive a 2.4 meter/ 8 foot drop. For land temperatures it can withstand -10 to +40°C (14 to 104°F ). For underwater temperatures it can withstand 0 to 40°C (32 to 104°F).

The Nikon Coolpix W300 comes equipped with strong video abilities. Users can shoot 4K footage, time lapse, and super lapse.

This camera is meant to be taken off the grid. It comes equipped with GPS, Bluetooth, a depth gauge, an altimeter, and an electronic compass. There is also 500 MB of in-camera storage in case users forget their SD card. For an extra bonus, link this camera to Nikon’s SnapBridge app. Easily transfer photos and videos onto your smart device directly from your camera.

The Nikon Coolpix W300 also boasts a strong battery. For normal use, you should be able to take over 300 shots before running out of battery. Expect a full recharge within 2 and a half hours.

This camera is for the rugged adventurer, who wants a bit more zoom and stability than a GoPro has to offer. Shooting is simple, because it can be easily operated with one hand. To get the perfect action shot, the Nikon Coolpix W300 can take 7 frames per second. Make sure the Coolpix W300 is stowed in your carry on for your next adventure.
