Nikon Coolpix AW100

 

Is Nikon's first 'tough' compact tough enough to stare down the opposition?

Tough enough to take anywhere ; Uncomplicated and easy to use ; Delivers excellent image quality outdoors ; Slow-motion video capture and Panoramic modes

Buttons a bit small and tightly clustered ; Auto White Balance easily fooled under artificial lighting

Nikon Coolpix AW100 review

 

Nikon's waterproof and shockproof with GPS

Packed with features ; Waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof ; GPS geo-tagging and digital compass ; Action control ; 1080p movies and creative movie options

Relatively expensive ; Choppy pictures at highest ISO settings ; Fairly slow zoom ; Plastic controls can feel cheap ; Lack of manual controls

The Nikon Coolpix AW100 is the first camera in the new Coolpix All Weather line. It's a rugged compact that's waterproof down to 10 metres for up to one hour, shockproof to a drop of 1.5 metres and freeze-proof for temperatures as low as -10C.

Nikon AW100 review

 

Nikon's ruggedised, 'all weather' AW100 camera is lots of fun to use no matter the weather or your environment. It's waterproof to 10m, drop-proof from 1.5m and it also has a built-in GPS and world map so that the coordinates of your photos are recorded.

Consider the Nikon AW100 if you're an outdoors type that can make use of the camera's rugged design. It's waterproof and shockproof, yet it doesn't really compromise when it comes to usability. It's picture quality is also clear and vibrant for the...

Nikon Coolpix AW100 Review

 

Rock climbing, snorkelling, skiing, running or walking in all weathers; Nikon's Coolpix AW100 is the companies entry into a growing camera market segment that is aimed at the more outdoorsy type...

Feature rich, Waterproof, Freeze proof and shockproof, Filter adapter, Good image quality

Expensive, Power usage (particularly with GPS switched on), Image Noise

The Nikon Coolpix AW100 is priced at £299.99 (from Nikon's web site) but shopping around online can get it significantly cheaper, the lowest I found being £249.99, nevertheless, it still positions the AW100 at the higher end of the ruggedised digital...
