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.

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. 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 & 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.
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 color 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.
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.
