Introducing children to the world of photography can be a daunting and scary experience as kids can damage professional cameras carelessly. However, Nikon the Japanese Camera company has just introduced a new type of camera called Nikon COOLPIX W150, the ultra-durable and compact digital camera that is child-friendly.
Capturing Colors Brilliantly: Inside Out of Nikon COOLPIX W150
Because this camera is specifically for children, it is only natural that the overall design of this camera offers a bright and colorful design to make it look more attractive to children. This camera is waterproof (up to 33ft/10m), freeze-proof (up to 14°F/-10°C) and shock resistant which means that taking it for a swim and accidentally dropping it will not break it whatsoever.
But because this is a camera for children, the specifications is obviously not on par with professional grade DSLR.
Total Ease and Fun for Kids
This camera uses a 13.2MP sensor, NIKKOR 3x zoom lens, Target Finding AF (which automatically detects and auto focus on primary subjects).
Nikon COOLPIX W150 camera offers an effective pixel count of 13.2 million pixels. The Dynamic Fine Zoom function can be used to achieve approximately 6x zoom while ensuring that resolution remains high throughout the digital zoom range. The dedicated movie button makes it easy to switch straight to recording Full HD (1080p/30 fps) video footage with stereo sound.
There are also various scene modes that the user can choose from, as well as photo editing functions in the camera.
“The graphical user interface (GUI) has also been modified to make it easier for first-time users to navigate,” Nikon says. “Camera operations can also be customized by selecting the design of the menu screen based on five options, as well as a [Variety menu] feature that can be disabled to limit the availability of selected camera functions.”
Unfortunately, Nikon hasn’t confirmed the price and availability of the Nikon COOLPIX W150, but given the specifications and features, this kid-friendly camera should be quite affordable.
