Characterized by its tough exterior, the yellow Nikon COOLPIX W300 is a sleek point-and-shoot featuring a reinforced physical design, along with apt multimedia imaging capabilities. Designed for adventures, and even everyday mishaps, the camera is waterproof-rated for depths up to 100' as well as shockproof for falls from up to 7.9' high and freezeproof for temperatures down to 14°F. In regard to imaging, a high-resolution 16MP BSI CMOS sensor benefits both stills shooting as well as video recording, with the ability to shoot continuously up to 7 fps, record video at UHD 4K/30p, and produce low noise imagery with a sensitivity range of ISO 100-6400. A 5x optical zoom lens spans wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths, and Vibration Reduction helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld imagery. Additionally, the W300 also incorporates SnapBridge wireless connectivity, which uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for seamlessly sharing imagery and remotely controlling the camera from a linked device. Built-in GPS is also available for geotagging your imagery in-camera.

Is there a focus lock (for hyperfocal distance) for fast shooting of birds flying by?
Asked by: Charles
The only way to lock the focus is by pressing the shutter halfway and holding it. But you can only lock the focus for one shot. An interchangeable lens camera would be a better option for locking the focus.

Anybody shot on Creative Timelapse mode? Could tell me about final resolution of video? because it is 4k but other models like B700 not make Timelapse videos on 4k, it is just 1080p.Thanks
Asked by: Valentin
When the Frame Rate setting of the movie menu is set to 30 fps (60p/60p), 300 images are captured and saved with 1080/30p. When set to 25 fps (25p/50p), 250 images are captured and saved with 1080/25p. While the final file size is not indicated, the resolution for in-camera Time-Lapse images would be 1080p, not 4K.

How fast is the auto-focus?

How fast is the auto-focus?
Asked by: Charles
The Nikon COOLPIX W300 Digital Camera uses contrast-detection autofocus. While it is not the fastest point-and-shoot camera in regards to autofocus, focus is relatively fast and is similar in performance to other point-and-shoot cameras that use contrast-detection autofocus.
