Losing a camera gear is never easy and when you throw it in the ocean to get good gauges, you’ll never see your beloved camera again. This is the same story for Masaki (opens in a new tab), lost his Nikon Coolpix W300 while out at sea with a group of friends from college. However, to his surprise, and a whole year later, Masaki found his Coolpix W300 in a strained, low state and still looking functional and powered on. – what a blessing!

Said in a recent tweet, Masaki found her lost Nikon Coolpix W300 at sea a year later, still powered on and working. as you can see from the tweet, the ocean tried to claim its own new prize, the camera is now covered in seaweed and springs – quite frankly it looks like a relic lost from a bygone era. However, surprisingly still works, turns on the power and displays the image on the LCD screen.
We know this is a waterproof camera and is designed for shooting in and out of water, but can last a whole year in the sea, without salt water or moisture ingress and still have battery life! Nikon should contact Masaki and use his image for their next campaign and this is another story.
When he discovered his lost Nikon, Masaki said:
“While enjoying and observing marine life while diving, I discovered an orange object buried in gravel on the seabed at a depth of about 6 meters. The machine wrapped in a silicon case is a digital camera. digital that I once lost”.
This is a great story, not only did Masaki find his lost camera on the bottom of the sea a year later, but to everyone’s surprise it was powered on and still able to take pictures. – I mean the odds are slim, but thankfully this story has a happy ending.
