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.
VR image stabilizationA Nikon technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake.
ISO 1600Maximum high ISO available on the camera is 1600 ISO.
CMOSComplementary 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 / Easy Auto ModeNikon 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 AFSelect 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 HDFull HD video offers a resolution of 1080p, with an aspect ratio of 16:9.
