Looking for the best Nikon Coolpix W150 deals? Look no further! This is a low-cost waterproof / underwater camera designed to be affordable and simple to use for beginners and families. 

It’s a refresh of the W100 model with few substantial differences, but some pretty eye-catching color schemes – and like a junior version of the Nikon Coolpix W300 (opens in new tab) that's currently in our best waterproof cameras (opens in new tab) buying guide.

Underwater point and shoot cameras are great for family pool parties, vacations or just general use. The Coolpix W150 can be used down to a depth of 10m, but it’s also shockproof and can withstand a drop of up to 1.8m. It’s freezeproof down to 14°C / -10°C degrees and it's shock- and dust-proof, too.

Inside its got the same 13.2MP 1/3.1-inch sensor as the Coolpix W100 and the same 3x optical zoom lens on the front. Round the back, there’s a large, anti-reflective LCD screen designed for visibility underwater, and there’s a new Underwater Face Framing mode which takes up to four pictures each time it sees a face.

The small sensor and simple point and shoot operation mean this is a camera for casual use rather than expert photographers, but Nikon has tried to increase the fun value with a ‘Fun Variety menu’ with interactive features. It's also available in a wide range of colors and designs, including a very fetching pink version that's set to be a strong candidate for our best pink camera (opens in new tab) guide (which is a real thing!).

You wouldn’t expect 4K video at this price, but the Coolpix W150 can shoot full HD 1080p video at up to 30fps, with stereo sound. The new Nikon Coolpix W150 is also compatible with Nikon’s SnapBridge wireless connectivity system, via free Android and iOS SnapBridge apps.
