Nikon Coolpix AW120 review

 

A rugged camera that'll document your wild exploits and live to tell the tale

(Mostly) good picture and video ; Almost indestructible ; Compact and light

Occasional metering issues ; Near-unusable Wi-Fi

Nikon Coolpix AW120 review

 

Rugged, waterproof and well-equipped, but at a price

Rugged construction ; Wi-Fi and GPS ; Quick and responsive ; Decent image quality

Small controls ; Limited zoom range ; High price ; No touchscreen

A good compact camera with plenty of features, but only really worth the price if you need its waterproof, shockproof qualities.

Excellent tough credentials ; Wi-Fi direct ; GPS maps ; Great day time photos

When it comes to image quality, there are cameras that will perform better than the AW120. It’s an easy, basic camera that takes good photos that will satisfy its intended user. However, there are smartphones that take photos that are just as good. But...

Nikon Coolpix AW120

 

With Wi-Fi, GPS, and an OLED display, the Nikon Coolpix AW120 is one of the better rugged compact cameras you can buy, but it's not quite an Editors' Choice.

Sharp 5x zoom lens. 24mm wide angle. 3-inch OLED display. Waterproof to 59 feet. Integrated Wi-Fi and GPS.

Images are on the noisy side. No external charger included.

Both GPS and Wi-Fi are integrated here. The GPS module adds your location information to photos; it takes about a minute to lock onto a signal, but updated pretty quickly after that in my tests. You can transfer photos from the AW120 to an iOS or...
