Nikon UK Press Release
London, United Kingdom, 23rd April 2019: Nikon introduces the latest member of the COOLPIX family, the fun-loving COOLPIX W150. Waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof, and dustproof, this compact adventure camera is built to go anywhere and offers a truly hassle-free experience.
From snowy landscapes to underwater scenes, the COOLPIX W150 is so easy to use that anyone can capture superb photos and videos with it. Underwater Face Framing mode ensures great shots in the pool or on a dive of up to 10 m. The camera is shockproof up to 1.8 m, so it can take a few knocks on a family holiday or at a party. Nikon’s low-light CMOS sensor and precision NIKKOR 3x optical zoom lens delivers beautifully sharp images. A dedicated movie button makes it simple to switch straight to recording Full HD movies with stereo sound.
Fun features include a range of in-camera photo effects that are easy to add, and an optional interactive Variety Menu for kids. Turn it on and users can attach voice messages to photos, activate playful welcome screens, animate slide shows, and more. Waterproof accessories like Nikon’s easy-to-spot floating strap keep the camera safe. SnapBridge makes it simple to share the best shots, or use a smart device to shoot remotely.
Yoshihiro Katakami, Product Manager for COOLPIX at Nikon UK, comments: “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.”
