Coolpix W150

The Coolpix W150 is the latest 'tough' Nikon camera that's waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof and dustproof making it perfect for holidays/vacations as well as young children who enjoy photography as a hobby.

Underwater Face Framing mode ensures great shots in the pool or on a dive of up to 10m and the camera is shockproof up to 1.8m, so it can take a few knocks on a family holiday or at a party.

Other features include the inclusion of Nikon's low-light CMOS sensor and a NIKKOR 3x optical zoom lens (extendable with 6x Dynamic Fine Zoom). Plus, there's a dedicated movie button so you can switch straight to recording Full HD movies with stereo sound.

Yoshihiro Katakami, Product Manager for Coolpix at Nikon UK, said: "The Coolpix W150 is a great waterproof point-and-shoot. Kids can have fun with it, parents don’t need to worry about it - and it's available in a range of vibrant colours. If you’re off on a weekend with friends, this is the camera that’s always ready to go."

For those who like to use photo effects, plenty are built in and there's an optional interactive 'Variety Menu' for kids so they can attach voice messages to photos, animate slideshows and more. In fact, the W150 is rather perfect for children thanks to its robust design overall style. 

The Nikon Coolpix W150 is compatible with SnapBridge so you can share images to smart devices or shoot remotely and optional accessories, such as Nikon's easy-to-spot floating strap, are available. 

Price TBC but the older Coolpix W100 is currently available for £129

I wish someone would sell an inexpensive dome port for this camera and cameras like my Olympus TG4.
