    Nikon Coolpix W300 Black 16.0 Megapixel Waterproof Digital Camera - 26523

    Some people are happy to take pictures from the comfort of the sidelines. That's nice. But if you want to be part of the action, you need a camera as tough as you. For those thrill seekers and action-hounds, meet the COOLPIX W300, a tough-as-nails camera designed for the extremes. Waterproof, freezeproof, shockproof and dustproof, it captures 4K Ultra HD video, 16 MP photos, time-lapse movies and more in the harshest conditions. Bring it surfing, skiing, SCUBA diving, biking, climbing...wherever your adventures lead. Use the built-in GPS, eCompass, altimeter, Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® Low Energy to track and share every heart-pounding moment. Show the world what you're really made of.

    Key Features:

    • Waterproof, freezeproof, shockproof and dustproof adventure camera with extra capabilities

    • 5x optical zoom NIKKOR lens with telephoto power and Hybrid VR image stabilization
    • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, eCompass, altimeter, depth gauge and more


    • Waterproof to 100 ft.
      Take it snorkeling, SCUBA diving, fishing or just having fun in the pool
    • Freezeproof to 14°
      Take it skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snow shoeing or ice skating

    • 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
    • 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
    • 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.

When you're wearing heavy gloves, you can change modes simply by moving the camera
    • 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.

    • Fast continuous shooting
