Nikkor wide-angle zoom lens and CMOS sensor deliver superb images in low light
The sensitive back-illuminated CMOS sensor and bright f/2.8 lens give you the freedom to shoot underwater or in low light. The 5x optical zoom offers a flexible range of 24–120 mm (35 mm equivalent). And the 10x Dynamic Fine Zoom effectively doubles your reach to 240 mm (35 mm equivalent). Macro mode lets you capture extreme close-ups of tiny wonders above or below the water.
Grab ultra-high-definition video and let them know what they’re missing
Easily shoot stunning 4K/UHD 30p footage, or record Full HD (1080p) video on land or underwater. An AE lock helps capture smooth footage as the light changes, which is especially handy when filming underwater. You can save frames as photos when viewing footage in playback mode, and optimise video for sharing on social networks by recording in MP4 format.
Speedy autofocus and vibration reduction deliver fast, steady shooting
The fast autofocus (AF) system with Target Finding AF technology keeps the focus on your intended subject, even underwater or in low light. Subjects snap into focus incredibly quickly, whether you’re taking an underwater portrait of your diving buddy or filming action as the daylight fades. Nikon’s five-axis Hybrid vibration reduction compensates for camera shake so you get steady video footage. Perfect when shooting the scenery from the back of the jeep.
Easily create dramatic clips with the in-camera time-lapse and Superlapse movie
Capture a fast-forward dash along a trail with Superlapse movie. This clever function enables a central subject to be placed in quickly changing scenes and settings. Let the camera create a time-lapse movie clip of the night sky at camp. Or the sun setting over the horizon as you relax on the beach after your dive.
Geotag your shots and log your journey. Support for GPS/GLONASS/QZSS lets you instantly check your position or water depth on the camera’s monitor.

What in fact this camera is, is a minor 'evolution' of the old Coolpix AW130. In fact it is practically the same camera. It has the same size and shape, it has the same lens, same zoom, same aperture, same megapixel count, same buttons in the same positions, and practically all the same functionality.
What is different is that it has the ability to do 4K video, and it has a slightly redesigned hand-grip. It also appears to have bluetooth, although why this would be an improvement when it already has wifi connection to your smartphone is debatable. Unfortunately the W300 does appear to gobble up battery power more quickly, only getting 280 shots from one charge compared to the AW130's 370 shots. Finally, the release price of the W300 is £400... The release price of the AW130 two years ago was £280. The minor changes listed above certainly don't justify adding an extra £120 to the list price.
I don't deny that this camera is still one of the best rugged cameras you can buy, with good functionality, and it produces nice photos in good lighting conditions. However, it struggles in any kind of low lighting conditions.
A new numbering scheme (AW130 to W300) implies a revolutionary change in the camera. This is clearly not the case. This is a 'missed opportunity', as Nikon could have made this the 'go to' camera for sports and underwater activities - one which beats all others on the market. I really don't think it has done that.
Things which Nikon could have done, but didn't...
1. Manual control of aperture and shutter speed.
2. Capability to take RAW images (useful for better colour balance & image noise).
3. Larger CMOS Sensor or Lens Aperture (for better low light performance). f/2.0 would be so much better in low light !!
4. Better High ISO Performance. Maximum of 6400 is mediocre these days. Should be max 12,800.
5. Better Anti-Fogging resistance - an occasional problem with the AW130.
Other issues which I would have hoped Nikon would have sorted out before releasing the successor to the AW130, are as follows...
1. The flash is actually lower down on the camera than the lens. This has the very inconvenient effect that flash photos of people taken near a wall always have a shadow of the person's head going above and to the left of their head. It is a bit unacceptable this day and age to have this arrangement. Think of any quality camera, and you will always see that the flash is 'above' the lens, to avoid this shadow effect.
2. The camera doesn't have a 3:2 aspect ratio. It has a 4:3, a 16:9, and even a square 1:1 mode, but no 3:2. This is an unbelievable omission, since most quality / professional cameras have 3:2 as their standard aspect ratio. 16:9 is fabulous for landscapes, but is useless for portraits (since it is too tall & thin). When going around a city (with my AW130), I would find myself switching between 4:3 and 16:9 many times a day, when if 3:2 aspect ratio was available, I would almost not have to switch at all.
I will admit to not owning the W300, but I have had a close look at the specifications, and I am disappointed with what Nikon has come up with. I do need a new rugged camera, and was waiting for the successor of the AW130 to come out. Unfortunately, for the reasons mentioned above, I don't think I will be buying the Coolpix W300. There are other cameras on the market which tick a lot more of the boxes.
One final thing... If you want a camera to take on a scuba dive which goes down to 30 metres under the water, then this (for the moment) is the only standard rugged camera available which doesn't require an specialist dive housing.
