Nikons COOLPIX range of compact cameras has a new addition thats made for adventure at home or abroad - the 13.2-megapixel COOLPIX W100.

Shoot high-quality photos and share instantly with SnapBridge5, which automatically transfers images to your smart device for easy storage and social sharing while on the go. Utilising Bluetooth low energy BLE technology, SnapBridge maintains a constant, low-power connection between your COOLPIX W100 and your smartphone or tablet, to give you easy control over your photographic life. Full HD movies 1080p with stereo sound are recorded at the touch of a button, with Electronic VR Vibration Reduction keeping videos smooth and clear.

Incredibly simple to operate, the COOLPIX W100 has dedicated one-touch buttons and an easy-to-use interface, plus a special childrens menu making it suitable for photographers of all ages. Select Easy auto mode to let your camera optimise all its settings for you, giving you great images every time, and you can frame shots clearly with the 230k-dot 6.7cm/2.7in TFT LCD monitor - even in low light or direct sunlight.

Perfect portraits have never been easier both above and underwater. The Smart portrait system activates features like Face-priority AF, which automatically detects your subjects facial area and focuses on it, whilst the Underwater face framing takes shots automatically when it detects peoples faces in the sea or pool.
