Description

Waterproof to 30 m, shockproof, freeze-proof, and dustproof, the Nikon Coolpix W300 goes where you go and brings back great images to prove it.
Take the plunge with the Nikon Coolpix W300 and you can capture photos and video at depths of up to 30 m without housing.¹ A solid performer on land too, this dustproof compact lets you shoot in temperatures as low as -10° C.² And the shockproof body can tolerate drops from heights of up to 2.4 m.³ Get your Advanced Open Water certification, ride those rough trails, and hit the slopes—all without worrying about the camera.
The bright NIKKOR wide-angle zoom lens and 16 MP CMOS sensor deliver superb images  of unforgettable moments with the Nikon Coolpix W300—even in low light.
The sensitive back-illuminated CMOS sensor and bright f/2.8 lens give you the freedom to shoot underwater or in low light. The 5x optical zoom offers a flexible range of 24–120mm (35mm equivalent). And the 10x Dynamic Fine Zoom effectively doubles your reach to 240 mm (35mm equivalent).⁴ Macro mode lets you capture extreme close-ups of tiny wonders above or below the water.
Revel in the details with 4K/UHD video.
See more of the world. Then show more of the world. Grab ultra-high-definition video and let them know what they’re missing.
Easily shoot stunning 4K/UHD 30p footage, or record Full HD (1080p) video on land or underwater. An AE lock helps capture smooth footage as the light changes, which is especially handy when filming underwater. You can save frames as photos when viewing footage in playback mode, and optimise video for sharing on social networks by recording in MP4 format. A wind-noise-reduction function can reduce the sound that is produced when wind passes over the camera’s built-in stereo microphone.
The creative edge. It’s yours.
Easily create dramatic clips with the in-camera time-lapse and Superlapse movie functions.
Capture a fast-forward dash along a new trail with Superlapse movie. This clever function enables a central subject to be placed in quickly changing scenes and settings. Let the camera create a time-lapse movie clip of the night sky at camp. Or the sun setting over the horizon as you relax on the beach after your dive.
Geotag your shots and log your journey. Support for GPS/GLONASS/QZSS lets you instantly check your position or water depth on the camera’s monitor.
Track your altitude or underwater depth with a dual altimeter/depth gauge. The camera’s Tool button instantly displays GPS, altitude/depth or air pressure/water pressure readings on the monitor image. Altitude and water depth information recorded at the time of shooting can be included in the image data (EXIF).
Share the view. Stay connected via SnapBridge.
Keep your camera connected to your smart device to sync photos as you shoot—then share them instantly. Use your smart device to shoot remotely.
Nikon’s SnapBridge lets you keep the Nikon Coolpix W300 constantly connected to your smart device via Bluetooth® low energy technology.⁵ Sync photos to your device as you shoot, without having to reconnect each time. Transfer movies manually whenever you want via the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi®.⁶ SnapBridge connectivity also lets you use your smart device to shoot remotely.
Easy control for lives rich with adventure.

With a deep grip, a large monitor, and easy control underwater or when wearing gloves, this camera lets you keep your attention on the action.
Weighing in at just 231 g, this small camera still packs a large monitor with great visibility. The 7.5 cm (3 in) 920k-dot TFT monitor makes it simple to confirm camera settings, check compositions, or review images. You can use the LED light button to illuminate darker surroundings. Extra space between the buttons plus a large zoom control facilitate easier operation when wearing gloves. And the deep, non-slip grip ensures a firm hold.
The world is waiting. Go find it.

The camera’s tripod socket is just as useful for accessories—like Nikon’s underwater flash—as it is for shooting time-lapse movies with a tripod.
The tripod socket accepts a variety of accessories (including a selfie stick) as well as a tripod. And this camera is compatible with Nikon’s SB-N10 underwater Speedlight, which can be used to depths of 30 m. Use it to shed some light in murky underwater environments and amaze your friends with the vibrancy of your underwater adventures.
