Take family portraits to a whole new level of fun, with the easy-to-use COOLPIX W100. It’s waterproof to a depth of 10m1, shockproof to a drop of 1.8m2, cold-resistant down to -10°3 and dustproof4 – so you can take it almost anywhere to capture your family’s unforgettable moments. Plus, with SnapBridge, you can stay connected and instantly share your memories with friends and loved ones – no matter where you are.

Life's moments at your fingertips

Share your best shots with SnapBridge, a new feature that automatically downloads your images to your smart device – via a constant Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection. BLE maintains constant connection with minimal power, so you can continue shooting and sharing without draining your batteries too quickly. SnapBridge also allows your smart device to access your camera, even when the camera is switched off. It automatically archives your pictures onto Nikon Image Space5, too.

SnapBridge is now available for download on Google Play™ for Android™. For iOS, SnapBridge will be available for download from the summer of 2016 on the App Store®.


Incredible imagery made simple

Whether it’s your kids playing in water or your friends frollocking on the beach, you can capture spontaneous moments with the COOLPIX W100’s Target Finding autofocus. That’s because, it automatically focuses on your subject – anywhere in the frame. The COOLPIX W100 also features a continuous shot-combining technology, which helps produce clear shots – in any lighting conditions.

Take it on a dive up to 10m1 underwater, drop it from 1.8m2, brave the cold down to -10°3 or bring it with you to the sand dunes4. You’ll be able to capture all of your family’s exciting activities without worry.
