Digital Camera Description

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is a Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 16 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 125-1600 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 125-6400. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 16 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Nikon Coolpix W300 to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/1500 to 1s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/1500, fast action cannot be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.

Nikon Coolpix W300

The Nikon Coolpix W300 features a 99-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is waterproof to a 30 meter depth for a maximum of 60 minutes. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. This particular model is also freezeproof down to -10C. There is no viewfinder on the Nikon Coolpix W300 and no provision to add one.
