Coolpix W300 goes along with you on the road less travelled


Because adventure doesn’t stop at the shore. The Nikon Coolpix W300 is waterproof up to depths of 30 meters. That means you can take the point and shoot Nikon Coolpix W300 with you when snorkelling, SCUBA diving and capture photographs and video footage of your underwater experiences. No need for expensive housings that cost more than the cameras themselves! Fishing or having fun at the pool? Take it with and capture photographs without having to worry about it getting wet.


Not that South Africa has such cold weather, but you never know when a skiing, snowboarding-journey may cross your path. This rugged, Nikon compact camera is freezeproof up to 14º.


If you’re into high-impact sports like downhill mountain biking, BMX, bouldering or skateboarding, this camera won't disappoint since it can handle drops of up to 2.4 meters high.


Take it to the beach, to the farm and even let your kids get their grubby little hands and witness life through their wondering eyes. This camera will handle dust/dirt situations like a boss!

Tough-as-nails with uncompromised quality

Jaw-dropping photos and videos

Share epic photos and videos and shares the moment your friends and family. The Coolpix W300's 16 MP low-light sensor and fast f/2.8 NIKKOR zoom lens freeze action in striking detail, even in low-light conditions. It's super-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

When the action is just out of reach, zoom in with the telephoto power of this action camera’s 5x optical zoom lens. You 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. Yes please!

4K Ultra HD videos with stereo sound*

With the touch of a button, the Nikon Coolpix W300 records 4K Ultra HD or 1080p Full HD videos with stereo sound. Combine your favourite clips into a 30-second compilation with background music and special effects using Short Movie Show – makes sharing your adventures online that much easier. 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.

Simple, Smart operation designed for action

The Nikon Coolpix W300 compact camera couldn't be easier to use and gives you action-friendly control. 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.

Built-in Wi-fi and Bluetooth

Why wait if you can share the moment while it's still happening? Access and share on the go by pulling 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. 

True adventurers know that preparation is key!

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 Wi-fi and Bluetooth

Whether you're illuminating a subject, trying to see your map, this rugged compact camera's bright LED light will come in handy. Has your torch ever gone missing between tonnes of gear in your vehicle? 

Special effects and Creative Mode

Style is personal, so why shouldn't your photos be personalised to suit you? 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.

Capturing powerful photographs is made easy

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 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 snorkelling and SCUBA diving you’ll know that colour 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 is 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 colourful underwater photos and videos. Add a silicone jacket for better grip when wet.

Handle rugged situations like a pro with the Nikon Coolpix W300 compact point-and-shoot camera

*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.
