“ Resistant to water, shock, freezing and dust ”, this is how the Nikon Coolpix W150 is presented, a new camera easy to use and designed to take anywhere and use during holidays or family parties. This is the successor to the Coolpix W100, which dates back about three years and with which it shares virtually all features.
Thus, the new model is an update of the one that only changes its appearance, since its technical specifications are almost traced. Both the data of its sensor (CMOS of 1 / 3.1”and 13.2 Mppixels ), as well as of the optics ( 30-90 mm equiv. In 35 mm f / 3.3 – 5.9), the video recording capabilities ( Full HD 1080p / 30 fps ) or SnapBridge support(to synchronize the photos with the mobile and share them) are identical, and the same goes for its “off-road capabilities”: Dust-resistant (IP6X), submersible up to 10 meters ( IPX8), resistant to drops of up to 1.8 meters and freezing up to ten degrees below zero .
Features all of them that, according to the Japanese firm, make the Nikon Coolpix W150 “ a great waterproof camera that allows point and shoot. Children can have fun with her and parents won’t have to worry. If she goes on a weekend with her friends, this camera will be ready for use at all times. ”
In fact, Nikon emphasizes ease of use: “It’s so easy to use that anyone can capture great photos and videos with it.” To support this idea, the camera includes “fun functions such as a range of photographic effects and an optional interactive Full menu for children. Activate it and users can attach voice messages to photos, activate fun welcome screens, animated slide shows, etc.”
A Striking Finish
External measurements and weight are also shared with the Coolpix W100, so the novel thing about the model is in the exterior finish. In this sense, like its predecessor, the new camera is presented in five different colours; or rather five finishes since, in addition to some solid colours, it is also presented with striking drawings. The difference with its predecessor is that it only offered a finish with drawings and this time they are two, very colourful and striking.
As for the price and availability, as usual, the firm has not provided us with data on how much the Nikon Coolpix W150 will be available , but it is assumed that it will not take long to reach the stores and that it will have a price similar to its predecessor, that is, below 200 euros .
