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).
