Product Overview

Nikon Coolpix W150 is an entry-level 1/3.1" compact camera. Introduced by Nikon in 2019, it comes with sensor with 13 MP (4160 x 3120) resolution.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day. One should note that the Nikon Coolpix W150 has a 125 base ISO, which is not conducive to getting the cleanest images.
Last but not least, the camera can focus quite close to the subject.

Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
The Nikon COOLPIX W150 is an inexpensive, easy to use and fun waterproof compact. It’s fully automatic, has a 3x optical zoom and of course is waterproof, bounce-proof and freeze-proof. Apart from great design and simplicity of operation, its main strength is that it can send photos to your phone over a Bluetooth connection while you shoot. It lacks optical stabilisation,. has a small, low resolution screen, has only one 1080/30p video mode and isn’t great at continuous shooting.
