Even though recording videos is a passion, you're not necessarily looking to go pro. You're content with making tweaks to a couple of settings to suit the shot you're about to take. The COOLPIX W300 is very accessible which makes it suitable for this.

When you've got deep theoretical and practical knowledge about what makes a great video clip, there's a minimum level - and camera - you'll need to operate with. This camera from Nikon with its array of settings works really well for those who are meticulous about what they produce each time they shout action!

Video Scenarios

Recording every moment of the day's events is precious and this device certainly delivers. While the camera is rolling it has a handy Image stabilization feature built-in.

Its always great to capture moments of delight at home or while spending time with family and friends on an outing. For this, the Nikon  COOLPIX W300 is a great companion to have.

Self made video content - Whether its in a specialist niche or broad subject area, video content is king (or queen) these days. With an image sensor size of 6.17 x 4.55 mm (mm), this camera can deliver really good image quality in your videos. It's also got Wi-Fi so if you can still make your transfers even if you're not with your cables.

Rough and Tumble - It's rugged and built for the outdoors. As such you won't have to worry about getting splash of water on it nor if it gets the odd bump now and then.

If you're looking for that silky-smooth rendering of your videos, this camera has got it as its able to handle 60 FPS at 1080p resolutions.

Breathtaking transitions such as rolling clouds or city lights can captured as a time-lapse using the Nikon 's in-built intervalometer

Photo Scenarios

If you're looking to simply use your camera to point-and-shoot everyday moments with an item or person as the subject matter, then the COOLPIX W300 is an easy recommendation for this.

While taking those action shots during the day's event, you'll be aiming to keep your subject matter in sharp focus while they're in motion. The Auto Focus Tracking capability that comes with this camera helps with this.

As lots of sports happen at night or in-doors, the image sensor size plays an important role in image quality during low light conditions. In addition to its 6.17 x 4.55 mm(mm) sensor size, the Nikon  COOLPIX W300, also comes with a Tracking Focus mode which is great for photos were the subject is constantly moving.

Sea-life is always breathtaking. With this camera from Nikon , you can expect to produce vivid images that showcases the unique tone that are found with photographs taken underwater.

Whether on holiday or exploring new places, this camera from Nikon is a great choice. Taking photos of what's around you - near and far - with the COOLPIX W300 is a breeze.

From ants to zebras, a camera for nature's mosaic needs to have a great image sensor which is why the 6.17 x 4.55 mm (mm) that comes with this model works well for this scenario. It comes with a Continuous Shooting Mode allowing you to take successive shots rapidly. 

Composing photographs of landscapes is subject to the lighting conditions that you're faced with. The 6.17 x 4.55 mm(mm) Image Sensor Size on this model play a big role in this. Also, the Nikon  COOLPIX W300 has a variety of scene modes which can be selected to suit the shot you're preparing to take.

Other considerations

During wet weather, not all cameras can cope with the odd splash or two. Fortunately, this device from Nikon  is sufficiently resistant to water to protect it from rain and drizzles.

Transferring your shots from your camera to another device is made even more convenient with the in-built Wi-FI capability of this camera.

Underwater photography is beautiful and you'll want a camera able to handle such wet conditions. Good thing the Nikon  COOLPIX W300 is waterproof up to a depth of 30 m metres.

While out and about taking photos or recording video, you may encounter quite a bit of dust. This could come from various sources such as a construction site or just the natural environment in your location. Being certified as dust-proof, the COOLPIX W300 is a great companion to have in these situations.

Style

It's an eye-catching package with a bright and refreshing look about it. It could even play the role of an accessory to compliment a specific sense of style.

The COOLPIX W300 comes in an unconventional package that stands out from the typical greys and blacks that are common with such devices.

When you're more concerned about what your camera does than how it looks, the COOLPIX W300 is a safe bet.
