The whole time you’re shooting, Nikon’s Hybrid VR (Vibration Reduction) keeps your photos and videos steady, even when the road gets bumpy. Yes, please!

Glamour Retouch

Point and shoot ease

The Nikon Coolpix W300 compact action camera 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

Life doesn’t slow down for you to take a photograph, so when the action speeds up, hold down the Coolpix W300’s shutter button and capture up to 7 frames per second. A split second of action frozen in time.

Powerful battery and quick charging

Many times when you’re out exploring, there’s no way to recharge your camera’s battery. That’s why the compact Coolpix W300’s battery is good for over 280 shots. And when it’s time for a charge, you can expect a full recharge within 2 hours and 20 minutes.

Adventure Accessories

This next feature really takes the Nikon Coolpix W300 to the next level. If you enjoy snorkeling and SCUBA diving you’ll know that color fades the deeper you dive. Red is the first to go at just 4.5 meters, orange at 7.5 meters, yellow fades between 10 and 13 meters and green are the last to go at depth of about 21 meters. That is where Nikon hooks you up with the optional SB-N10 Underwater Speedlight**. It acts as both an underwater flash and a strobe and will help you get beautifully lit colorful underwater photos and videos. Add a silicone jacket for a better grip when wet.


*Not all video features are available when recording in 4K UHD, please refer to the owner’s manual for details.

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