Built for adventures big and small

Waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof

When you're having fun in the sun or enjoying the great outdoors, the last thing you want to worry about is keeping your camera safe. With the COOLPIX W150, you won't have to. It's built to handle the elements of even your most adventurous outings. Accidentally splashed near the pool? It's waterproof up to 10m deep. Dropped on a trail? It can withstand falls from up to 1.8m. Covered with sand at the beach? It's sealed to keep out dust and debris. The COOLPIX W150 can even handle bitter temperatures down to -10 degrees C and keep right on taking great photos.

Ready to take the plunge

Underwater shooting made easy

Heading to the pool or the beach? Capture every amazing moment, even underwater! Just select the "Shoot Under Water" setting and the COOLPIX W150 does the rest. There's even an "Underwater Face Framing" setting that automatically detects people's faces below the surface. Before you share your shots, the new Add Clarity Under Water editing function corrects overly blue hues and adds clarity to underwater images.

Dressed to impress

Stylish, comfortable and user-friendly

The COOLPIX W150 is designed to look great, feel great and perform great. Its gently curved body and recessed area around the lens provide a comfortable, solid grip in any hand. The large, well-positioned buttons and user-friendly interface are easily accessible for simple, intuitive operation. And the compact COOLPIX W150 is ready to go anywhere, weighing just 177 g.

Eye-catching effects made easy

18 convenient shooting modes

The COOLPIX W150 makes advanced techniques amazingly simple. 18 different shooting modes let you change your style to compliment your subject—from food photography to adding special effects like bubbles and mirror to your pictures. There's even a new "Picture-in-picture" function to make your images appear as if they were taken on an instant print camera then placed in front of the background of another picture.

A touch of magic

In-camera effects to make your images stand out

The fun doesn't stop after you snap the photo. The COOLPIX W150 has 15 new and unique in-camera effects* to make your images more fun and attractive. Add the “Little Planet” effect to make a landscape look like a small planet, or the "Curve Pictures" effect to make an image appear rounder. Decorate your shots with one of ten newly-designed decorative frames or cute stamps like hearts, stars, ribbons and more. Your images can also be combined to create one-of-a-kind collages that are perfect for sharing.

* Variety menu has to be selected to apply some of these features.

Capture the fun in Full HD

Full HD video with stereo sound—even underwater

On land or in the water, you can record all the action in Full HD video at 1080p/30 fps with stereo sound. While filming, the COOLPIX W150 uses electronic Vibration Reduction (e-VR) to reduce camera shake for smoother footage.

Tighter shots within reach

Get closer to subjects with the COOLPIX W150's 3x optical zoom. Still not enough reach? Dynamic Fine Zoom extends zoom 6x*. You can also capture subjects as close as approx. 5cm.

*At the maximum image size. The maximum zoom ratio varies by image size. The zoom ratio indicated for Dynamic Fine Zoom is the combined ratio of optical zoom from the maximum wide-angle position and digital zoom.

High quality, clear images

A 13.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor and high-performance NIKKOR lens work together to ensure high quality images with rich details. Electronic Vibration Reduction (VR) and Target Finding AF make sure subjects are sharp and clear.

Seamless image sharing

The COOLPIX W150 features Wi-Fi and Bluetooth allowing wireless connection to a compatible smart device for easy sharing. With Nikon's SnapBridge app, you can easily transfer your best shots to your smart device for quick sharing on the go.


  • VR image stabilization

    A Nikon technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake.

  • ISO 1600

    Maximum high ISO available on the camera is 1600 ISO.

  • CMOS

    Complementary metal-oxide semiconductor, one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras. The Nikon COOLPIX CMOS image sensor with a backside illumination structure increases the amount of light that each pixel receives. The resulting improvement in noise and sensitivity reduction makes the select COOLPIX cameras more capable when shooting night scenes or in dark indoor situations.

  • Scene Auto Selector

    Nikon COOLPIX cameras are so smart they know what kind of picture you're taking and can automatically select from six commonly used scene modes, eliminating the mode-setting procedure and streamlining the shooting process.

  • Target Finding AF

    Select COOLPIX digital cameras utilize the Target Finding AF feature which instantaneously assesses the intended subject and automatically adjusts the AF area according to its size to assure clearly focused images.

  • Full HD

    Full HD video offers a resolution of 1080p, with an aspect ratio of 16:9.

  • Wi-Fi

    Refers to wireless technology and wireless communication. In photography, it's most commonly the wireless transmission of images directly from a camera to a computer in order to achieve a swifter workflow.

  • Rugged Reliability

    Rugged Reliability describes Nikon COOLPIX digital cameras that are waterproof and shockproof, such as the COOLPIX AW100 and S30 models. Check your manual to see exactly what waterproof or shockproof designations your camera has.

  • Dynamic Fine Zoom

    Dynamic Fine Zoom is a new feature available on select Nikon COOLPIX digital cameras that extends the zoom range electronically 2x with minimal image degradation.
