Product Overview

Nikon Coolpix W100 is an entry-level 1/3.1" compact action camera. Introduced by Nikon in 2016, 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 Coolpix W100 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.

The Nikon COOLPIX W100 is a budget point-and-shoot waterproof compact. With a 3.7 inch screen and a small sensor it has a fairly basic specification. The icing on the cake is WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity which lets you automatically transfer all your photos to your phone in the background. You can also shoot remotely with a live view displayed on your phone screen when connected directly to the camera over WiFi.
