Ready for adventure

The COOLPIX W300 can go wherever the road less travelled leads.

Take it snorkeling, SCUBA diving, fishing or just having fun in the pool.

Freezeproof to -10°C.

Take it skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snow shoeing or ice skating.

Can handle rough conditions, including drops from up to 2.4m high.

Dustproof

Take it to the beach, the ball field...any place that gets dirty.

Jaw-dropping photos and videos

16-MP backside illuminated CMOS sensor

Share epic photos and videos that put your friends and family in the moment. The COOLPIX W300's 16 MP low-light sensor and fast f/2.8 NIKKOR zoom lens freeze action in striking detail, even when the light is fading. It's fast autofocus and continuous shooting speed helps you land shots others might miss. Turn on Macro Mode and reveal hidden details in flowers, plants, insects and more.

Zoom into the action

5x optical zoom NIKKOR lens with Hybrid VR

When the action is just out of reach, zoom in with the telephoto power of the COOLPIX W300's 5x optical zoom lens. You'll have the flexibility to get the whole scene into the frame or to zoom in for a tight view. The whole time you're shooting, Nikon's Hybrid VR (Vibration Reduction) keeps your photos and videos steady, even when the road gets bumpy.
 
 

4K Ultra HD videos with stereo sound*

With the touch of a button, the COOLPIX W300 records 4K Ultra HD or 1080p Full HD videos with stereo sound. Combine your favorite clips into a 30-second compilation with background music and special effects using Short Movie Show—ideal for sharing online. Use Time-lapse recording to condense an hour of action into a 10-second sequence, or speed up time with a Superlapse video. You can even shoot stills while recording video. The camera also features VR during movie recording (5-axis hybrid: lens-shift type and electronic type) and AE lock is now available when shooting underwater video.
 
*Not all video features are available when recording in 4K UHD, please refer to the owner’s manual for details.
 

Action-friendly control

Simple, smart operation designed for action

Operating the COOLPIX W300 couldn't be easier. An extra large grip and smart button placement make for stable one-handed shooting. The large 3.0-inch LCD has an anti-reflective coating for shooting in bright light. A dedicated Tool button gives you quick access to GPS, eCompass and other tools. When you're wearing heavy gloves, you can change modes simply by moving the camera.

Access and share on the go

Built-in Wi-Fi & Bluetooth

Pull out a compatible smartphone or tablet to automatically transfer, review and share your photos, add caption text and even take pictures remotely with the COOLPIX W300. The Nikon SnapBridge app can automatically back-up your photos to Nikon IMAGE SPACE as you shoot them. Share the moment while it's still happening.
Always be prepared

The COOLPIX W300 is more than a camera; it's a useful travel companion.

Onboard GPS, eCompass, Altimeter, Depth Gauge and more

Easily track and view your course, steps taken, altitude, depth—even atmospheric and water pressure—with the COOLPIX W300.

Built-in bright LED light

Whether you're illuminating a subject or trying to see your map, the COOLPIX W300's bright LED light will come in handy.

Style your shots

Special effects and Creative Mode

Make your photos stand out from the crowd with Creative Mode, eight Special Effects and eight Quick Effects that you can apply before or after you take a shot. Highlight a single colour within a B&W image, soften the focus of everything in a portrait, increase contrast and dynamic range, mimic a fisheye lens, make everything look like a toy model, reduce fog or smoke in a shot and much more.
Beautiful portraits made easy

Taking great photos of the people and pets we love is easy with the COOLPIX W300.

Smart Portrait Mode

Turn on Smart Portrait Mode and select from seven portrait-enhancing effects to make your friends and family look their best.

Glamour Retouch

Retouch your shots with 12 functions like Skin Softening, Teeth Whitening, Brighten Faces and more to make every shot a keeper.

Point and shoot ease

The COOLPIX W300 takes the work out of great photos and videos. When you're in a challenging situation, just select from 20 common Scene Modes like Night Landscape or Portrait, or choose Scene Auto Selector and let the camera choose for you.

Fast continuous shooting

When the action speeds up, hold down the COOLPIX W300's shutter button and capture up to 7 frames per second. Find amazing images within a split second of action.

Powerful battery and quick charging

When you're out on an excursion, there's no where to charge a battery. That's why the COOLPIX W300's battery is good for over 280 shots. When it is time for a charge, expect a full recharge in just 2 hours and 20 minutes.

Accessorize your adventures

Want to take things to the next level? Add the optional SB-N10 Underwater Speedlight*, which acts as both an underwater flash and a strobe, for beautifully lit underwater photos and videos. Add a silicone jacket for better grip when wet…and some extra style.

*The SB-N10 Underwater Speedlight requires use of the SR-CP10A Underwater Optical Fiber Optic Cable Adapter, sold separately.
