It's waterproof down to 10m, shockproof up to 1.8 meters and it is the perfect companion for you in the ski slopes at minus 10 degrees. When you have taken your pictures, you can easily make them even more fun by using the built-in filters and funny animations. If you would like to share your photos and videos, the camera will send them automatically to your smartphone or tablet via Nikon's innovative software SnapBridge. This is done wirelessly via Bluetooth Smart Ready or Wi-Fi. It’s enough to have your phone nearby when you have the Nikon SnapBridge app on the phone. The camera builds a constant connection to your phone through Bluetooth Smart Ready and the pictures are sent as you shoot them. To share fun and great photos has never been easier!"
