Waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof The AW100 can handle all that Mother Nature can throw at it. Take it diving to depths of up to 33-feet. Shoot at temperatures as cold as 14° F. And don't sweat drops of up to five feet. Whether it's in your hand, mounted to a surfboard, clipped on a backpack or attached to a scuba tank, every twist, splash, dive and crash can be recorded in both still and Full HD (1080p) movies. Plus, Nikon's new Action Control brings fast and easy operation to gloved hands. The AW100 lets you capture every thrilling moment from inside the action—not the sidelines.
Shoot in extreme low light Adventure doesn't always happen during perfect photo-taking conditions. Imagine sharp images produced 33-feet underwater, photos and movies captured while you explore a dark cave, or snapshots nabbed during that last run just as the sun was setting. What does it take to get these and more? A 16.0 MP CMOS sensor that blazes through low light, fast action and challenging shooting conditions to capture high-impact photos with exceptional image quality and low noise. Shoot three shots in about one second using one-touch control for Full HD (1080p) movies and ensure not a single moment of your action-packed lifestyle is missed.
Full HD (1080p) movies with stereo sound Don't just share some photos with friends, put them inside the action with you. Imagine reliving the downhill snowboarding rush, the incredible view as you hang glide down a 4,000-foot peak or showing your friends exactly what it was like to ”shoot the tube” in Hawaii. Attach the AW100 to your gear, and with a single touch of the control you're creating an in-the-action Full HD (1080p) movie with stereo sound. You'll capture all of life's adventures from a whole new perspective—your own.
Built-in GPS, mapping and Electronic compass Imagine you and a friend are white water rafting down an unfamiliar route. The AW100's rugged waterproof build can take the pounding action while you record photos and movies of this incredible adventure. Use the built-in GPS to track progress with Nikon View NX2 software, NIkon's myPicturetown® photo sharing site or Google Earth™. A built-in map lets you view your path, and the Electronic compass is an extra safety measure that can even help you ascertain which branch to take if there's a fork in the stream. Your geo-tagged photo travelogue will give you bragging rights as you share the adventure with your friends.
A handy Action Control feature More creativity at your fingertips—even if your fingertips are enclosed in ski gloves! The AW100's handy Action Control feature makes it easy to adjust specific camera settings. Wrapped up in the action with no time to change settings? The AW100 automatically adjusts camera settings. And if you're looking to add creativity, select in-camera effects such as black and white, or selective color. There's even an underwater mode to keep images colorful and properly exposed.
More Five advanced VR image stabilizing features automatically reduce the streaky images associated with shaky cameras. To ward off motion blur, the AW100's motion detector automatically tracks moving subjects and adjusts the camera's settings to keep them in focus. The AW100 has 20 Scene Modes to match your setting, or simply let Easy Auto Mode determine the ideal setting for great photos every time.

Pros: Everything you would expect from a Nikon - straightforward controls, simple point & shoot, excellent underwater photography, best auto-panorama feature I've ever seen! Excellent 1080p movies with a simple button to activate the movie mode (no complex changing from modes like some point & shoot cameras).
Very sensitive in low light, scene selection is very simple to use and is excellent in most lighting conditions underwater.
Battery is quite good: went a full day with a 4 gig card doing movies and 12 megapixel images and still had enough to replay them on the TV back at the room!
Cons: None that I've noticed so far.
Other Thoughts: As a long-time D-70 user, I expected Nikon to produce a quality product (and did not expect the camera to produce images comparable to the D-70). Pleasantly surprised that such a simple camera produces images that only a professional photographer might have issues with: most of us will be quite happy with the results.

Tech Level: 5/5
Rating: 3/5All Condition Rugged Camera
Pros: Rugged, light weight, water proof, well constructed, easy to use
Cons: Point and shoot, VERY poor depth of field, color isn't bad, but not really good either, price for a point and shoot camera, not a whole lot of options, video is worst I've seen in a few years (but I didn't buy it for video, nor do I recomend anyone else. You want video then go get something meant for video, Duhhhh).
Other Thoughts: This is a very good camera for a simple point and shoot I guess. However, being Nikon and for the cost of it versus comparable cameras, I really expected more. Maybe that's my fault. I guess the biggest complaint is depth of field. I bought this for a trip to Bogota Colombia. A very mountainous area. The pics made mountains look distorted. Even a friends $60 special had a better depth of field than this. Very disappointing. Wish I could find someone to buy it back from me...
