One of the real joy of scuba diving is being able to capture the moment and watch it back again and again later. Last year I put a plan, that I will go and learn to scuba dive and try to see the marine life in their own ecosystem. Well diving is an expensive sport, so now I had to save as much as I can and then the cost of staying, food, travel is just an additional cost. There was only one thing on my mind (well before learning to scuba, I just wanted great fish pictures underwater) that I want to click pictures and make great videos of my adventure.

Is Nikon Coolpix W300 better than GoPro Action Camera
- GoPro is waterproof up to 10m (33ft) and to take it beyond I will need a
super suit, this simpl ymeans I have to spend more. Where asNikon Coolpix W300 will go up to 30m (100ft).
- GoPro is 12 MP and is an action camera. Where as Nikon Coolpix W300 is a 16.05MP digital camera.
Goprohas a digital zoom capability and on the other handW300 had an optical zoom. Goprobeing an action camera does not have a flash and W300 has a flash, with a digital compass and an LED torch.
- This last feature blew my mind, W300 had an altitude and depth gage.
So, after careful
When I came home I realized not buying a GoPro and going for an alternative I saved a lot of money. The camera I bought came with a 16 GB memory card, HDMI cable, Nikon carry case, brush, charging USB wire, EN-EL 12 rechargeable battery, charging AC adapter, camera strap, user’s manuals and a warranty card.
