Whether it be a thrilling diving expedition, or a relaxing holiday by the beach, the COOLPIX W300 is here to capture it all. Waterproof*1, shockproof*2, cold-resistant*3, and dustproof*4, the COOLPIX W300 will preserve all your moments in stunning clarity with its 16.05-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and 4K UHD video capabilities. No matter where you are, stay constantly connected with SnapBridge to keep your friends and family up to date with your adventures.
COOLPIX W300 is built tough so it keeps going wherever you go. Dive with it to a depth of 30 m/100 ft without a housing (meets PADI advanced open water diving specifications). Count on it to keep performing in harsh conditions, since it’s designed to withstand drops from up to 2.4 m/8 ft., and temperatures down to -10°C/14°F. Dustproofing ensures uninterrupted operation in dusty, gritty, rugged outdoor environments.
The bright f/2.8 NIKKOR lens with 24 mm*1 wide-angle, and Backside illumination CMOS image sensor, combine to deliver remarkable images underwater or in other low-light situations. With 16 effective megapixels*2, 5x optical zoom and 10x*3 Dynamic Fine Zoom supported by VR (Vibration Reduction) for crisp, clear photos at full zoom and in low light, you have every reason to take beautiful shots on vacation or every day.
*1 35mm format equivalent.

*3 Magnification of Dynamic Fine Zoom is calculated from the maximum wide-angle position of optical zoom.
Document even the most intense moments of activity in magnificent 4K resolution. It’s so easy to film underwater with the new COOLPIX W300 auto exposure and AE lock, delivering vibrant colors and vivid expressions with more control than ever. Even those tricky underwater scenes, where surface waves produce fluctuating brightness in the water below, can be captured with ideal exposure just the way you envisioned.

Created with outdoor performance in mind, but styled to be equally at home in the city, this camera lets you show off its high quality wherever you are. It offers a comfortable and stable hold, with many functions accessible directly by button so you won’t have to hunt through menus, for smooth operation even while wearing gloves. The LED light that works as a flashlight is a button away to provide support when preparing for a shoot in pitch dark. When you’re all ready to shoot, the 7.5 cm/ 3.0-inch TFT screen with Anti-reflection coating ensures you to get the shot you want.
Whether you are shooting atop a mountain or underwater, press on the Tool Button to start Active Guide to check where you are right from the camera display, anytime you need it. Location data displays the direction that the camera is pointing toward, based on the information obtained using the built-in electronic compass. If you need to know how high or deep you are, Altitude and Water depth*1 displays keep you on top of the situation*2. You can even shoot while the information is displayed on the screen. Altitude and Water depth logs can be recorded at set time intervals and displayed for confirmation, which can later be displayed as a graph. What’s more, the camera can add location data to the images.
