Nikon Coolpix W150 Image Quality

All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 13 megapixel JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 6Mb.

Focal Range

The Nikon Coolpix W150’s 3x zoom lens achieves a maximum wide-angle focal length equivalent to 30mm, and can zoom in to 90mm (in 35mm camera terms).

Flash

The Nikon Coolpix W150’s flash has four settings when shooting in standard Auto mode: Auto, Auto with red-eye reduction, Fill flash & Slow sync. Shooting a white surface from a distance of 1.5m shows the flash provides even illumination with the lens zoomed in, though some minor vignetting is visible in the wide-angle shot.
