Just released this past week, the Nikon AW 100 is the perfect let it get wet camera for the outdoor enthusiast. Submersible and rugged…touted to be the best, it better be at twice the cost of many stalwart submersibles/all weather cameras. Time will tell for the comparisons.
- An effective pixel count of 16.0-million pixels and a 5x optical zoom NIKKOR lens with a zoom range beginning at the wide-angle 28 mm (equivalent in 35mm  format) for coverage of a broad range of angles of view
- Nikon’s first waterproof, shock-proof and cold-resistant camera
The AW100 offers durable specifications for shooting in the severe conditions presented with outdoor activities such as swimming and diving, or while hiking or skiing. It is waterproof to approximately 10 meters, shock-proof with a fall of up to approximately 1.5 meters, and can withstand cold air temperatures as low as – 10°C (14°F).
