How does the GPS tracking work? Does it mark your location every time you turn the camera on? Or do you have to leave the camera on at all times (draining the battery life?) to have it track where you've been? Is this a function you can turn completely off? I want this camera, but I don't see the usefulness of the GPS function. I would buy it today if there was a version without the GPS.

  • A. You can turn off the option completely. That's what I do. It will find you once you turn it on, in some places it will take long, it all depends. (ex, Basements would be really hard to catch signal) And you dont have to leave it on while it looks for you, it doesnt really takes that long. Its like a phone, it tells you if it has enough signal or not.

  • A. Yes you can turn the gps tracking off. It only kicks in once the camera is turned on. It takes a couple of seconds for the camera to pick up the satalite location, and there is a progress bar on the screen ( shown as a little satalite with 3 bars next to it). Once all 3 bars are up, you are using the gps function.

  • A. You have the option to turn OFF the GPS feature. When the Record GPS data is set to ON, the battery will be drained, even when the camera is turned off. The COOLPIX AW100 doesn't have a version without GPS.

I needed a smaller camera than my old dslr for school to do contextual research. I was doing a project that required me to take low light photos and video and since I love all things out doors, I tend to be tough on my electronics. This aw100 seemed like a perfect match with its size, durability, and cmos sensor. And it was. I freaking love this little device. I wouldn't say that it is perfect, but what is? The Good - Fairly compact - Is water proof (at least to 20 something ft.) - Is shock proof (at least to 4ft.) - put it in my freezer and it still worked - gps is neat - good low light photos - settings are easy to understand - the video is good - there is a slow motion setting The Bad - gps is cool but at this point useless - sound is good enough but leaves something to be desired - it will corrupt files randomly (it only does it on the amazing once in a life time shots) The Ugly - The lens broke. I have no idea how it happened. I just woke up one day and it was sitting on my nightstand with a shattered lens. So unless the dog did something or a room mate borrowed it and then put it back with out informing me of the situation, it magically broke itself.

This lightweight, pants-pocket-sized camera is perfect for snorkeling, mountaineering, hiking and snow skiing! I have used it for all these events. The build quality is excellent except that the rear glass over the LCD display does scratch easily which I fixed by applying a Ghost Armor protector at a Mall kiosk. That took care of covering my scratches and now leaves the screen truly scratch free. The camera performs beautifully and the HDMI output to my 52 inch TV is awesome! The HD movies are superb coming from such a small camera.

I love this camera. I already been in -30F windchill taking videos snowmobiling. It trully is water and freez proof. I love the fact that mine is orange. we dropped it in the snow and you can spot it instantly with this bright color. LOVE LOVE LOVE. the pictures are great as well. Love the separate button for video. no adjustment needed. just push the button to start recording in an instant.

Mines been in my pocket for thousands of miles of bicycle riding in the last year. No problems. Thanks Nikon for letting a camera out in the rain, dust, salt spray, hot, cold. I like this camera a lot.

i bought this camera for a 18 day kayak trip in gorgon bay, the camera worked very well and i got allot of very nice pictures. about 10 days in we had a campsite that was about 30ft away from a cliff which had a small stream at the bottom, while i went to go pick some blue berries i left my camera on the ground and one of my friends kicked it off the cliff. he went and fished it out of the stream and turned it on, still works perfectly the only this that heppend was a rock left a large dent in the metal front cover. the dent was so large that it pushed the metal cover off but it is still sealed underneath so i went the rest of the trip with the cover off and when i got home i straightened out with a hammer, re painted it and super glued it back on. if you saw it today you would never guess that it had been kicked off a cliff, especially because nothing everything still works and it is still completely waterproof so i am very happen it did more than what i bout it for so i cannot complain.
