Great Video, Have Patience with Stills

I have the AW100 and it's survived a water fight, snorkeling, rain and anyplace wet that I've used it. I don't know why others have had issues with water, but I do wipe mine down well before I pop it open, since getting salt, sand or water on the seals would be a problem. The camera takes solid 1080 HD video in all of the above settings. The auto-level on the audio tends to over-react, though, and when a water drop hits the camera it will go silent for a second. Still photos take a little patience. Shooting underwater seemed to work okay, but in general I have to remember that I'm not using my SLR and to give it a little more time to focus and adjust before I shoot. I have to agree that battery life has been an issue. I actually get better life from the third-party battery than I do from the Nikon battery. The GPS seems to be a player in that, and I"m sure WIFI will make it worse, so my trick has been to leave the GPS on long enough to tag my location (when I want that) and turn it off again to save battery. Overall I like the camera and it's the one I grab first if I need something to fit in my pocket. I just wish they had blue at the store when I got it, but orange is nice, too.

Love the quality and ease of use!!! Perfect camera for beach, snorkeling and everyday!!!

I bought this camera at Costco in St. Louis, Missouri and couldn't believe I was getting 16 mega pixels, full 1080 HD video and a Nikon that was waterproof for the price!!! I had read a few negative reviews but decided to give it a try. We literally hit the water running with this camera!!! Daily snorkeling in Cozumel, diving up to 20 or more feet for close ups, taking it in the pool and getting funny looks from others thinking we just ruined our camera and much more. I have also used it back in the U. S. for birthday parties, hiking and everyday pictures. I am finding I don't even want to use my Canon or IPhone for pictures anymore!!! The negative reviews I did read are more like just using common sense when using the camera. Be sure to properly close the battery compartment before getting wet and allow camera to dry and remove sand or debris with the little brush they provide you with before opening. As far as foggy lenses go think of it like your sunglasses. If you have it in air conditioning or cool weather and all of a sudden you try to use it in the sun or warm water it may fog up a little. I only experienced this 1 time and all I had to do was wipe it off. In my opinion it is a great, compact, easy to use, well priced, quality and underwater capable camera!!! Would I buy it again? Most definitely!!! I hope some of you will find this information useful!!!

Excellent Camera

I love this camera .I bought a d60 n p510 but this camera takes excellent pictures. I put the camera around my neck and just take pics of park flowers family and different kinds of food This camera does a lot for the price.Especially that I can download what pictures i want from the camera to my galaxy note 2 .I download the program from play store to my galaxy note 2 and my iPad .So when I want to post my pictures to FB or any site just have 1 touch to transfer the pics.I haven't tried the camera in water yet but it's ashame that I use this camera more then my expensive cameras.

Takes nice photos, drowned in Grand Cayman

Well what photos and videos I was able to salvage came out great, however, my brand new orange AW100 drowned under the dock bar at the Moritt's in Grand Cayman while filming a school of Tarpon. The camera inexplicably froze and filled with sea water, almost looked like it was on fire LOL. Very disappointed. Again, probably a one time defect, I have had other Nikon cameras and they were all real good, never giving me a problem. The attached photo shows the actual dock bar under which my camera drowned LOL

Easy to use and carry

I bought this one as soon as it was available. I have taken it on some cruises, to the beach, on the kayak and on the trail. I have never had to worry about it getting wet, unlike some of my friends. The is best waterproof camera that I have owned. I have owned 2 others.

Was expecting more than a wannabe waterproof, GPS, WiFi action camera

I really needed a small compact DVR for my bike and scooter. I went with the Cool pix AW110 because of the fixed lens and full HD video because my Kodak Zx5 failed from water intrusion and was only 720p. Battery life is respectable but requires multiple batteries and chargers and battery change interruptions for anything more than a 20 minute video and equivalent picture load. The Nikon designer must not know that a water seal system requires a thick and sturdy gasket under tight uniform mechanical pressure before it sees water as some of the less than a $100 and top of the line underwater cameras provide with an external case (Midland and GoPro). Nikon would do well to invest in the use of these type cases for all of its cameras and reserve its waterproof claim for rain resistant cameras under the same disclaimers for dirt or debris impairment of the seal. With this caveat I would recommend this camera as a compact out-of-the-way snapshot camera ready for that walk in the drizzle in the local park.

Excellent camera, tough, waterproof, picky on SD.

So i can't add a bunch to what has already been said, but i took my camera to the bahamas, underwater most of the time. Didn't have a hitch except that it froze up on me a couple of times (remove battery, reinsert, back in business#. It appears it was the SD card #not approved one# so i bought an approved one and havent had the issue since #so hopefully that was the cause#. I can't tell you the look on peoples faces when you bring the cam into the water and then go under, as people still aren't used to seeing waterproof cameras. #Kindof like cellphones back in the early 90's#. The camera is stylish to boot. Get the Nikon float strap #black one with Nikon written on it in white). I also picked up a 3rd party charger that just plugs into the wall and battery inserts into it, along with some spare batteries. The cam has lived up to the hype. Pictures are nice. Now dont compare it to my Canon T2i DSLR, but hey, i can't dunk my DSLR under water or drop it from 5 feet! :)

Do Not Buy this Camera for underwater use

This camera does take beautiful pictures until the screen goes black after using it in the water. I had to return my first one after the screen went black the first week I had it while using it snorkeling in less than 10 feet of water. Thinking that this was a uniquely defective camera, I stupidly bought another because I liked the idea of a camera that could be used in the water. Unfortunately the second camera did the same thing and I was in a pool only under water for a few seconds at a time over the course of 20 mins and the next day the screen went black. The camera still takes pictures but with no display the camera is useless. So I literally used this camera twice and got 60 pictures out of a $330.00 camera. Since I'm out of warranty I can pay to get this defective camera fixed, if it's even fixable. After reading so many reviews with the same problem this camera must not be waterproof as it says and have bad seals. I feel like an idiot for buying this defective camera twice- DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA!

This camera ruined my honeymoon.

My husband and I both own several Nikon DSLRs and varying lenses - we purchased this little one to use on our honeymoon as we wanted something more compact and portable (not to mention waterproof as we planned to do some snorkelling.) The camera was alright for the first few days: the video quality was alright, and the battery life was too. The varying photo modes allowed for some customization of what you were shooting, and we were enjoying ourselves. But then just as we were about to swim with sea turtles, it would not turn on. The battery was charged, and we had been careful to ensure that no water had gotten inside. Pulling the battery didn't work when we tried to reset it, and we lost the chance to preserve our memories. We are also still waiting to see if the existing photos will be recoverable from the memory card. Overall we are very disappointed in this camera and would not recommend it to anyone. Its malfunction really cast a dour shade over the last few days of our honeymoon and I find myself wishing we had gone with a different brand instead.

Best in class

I lost my Nikon AW-110 in the woods while hunting in early January 2014. It spent 4 weeks alone, naked and afraid in the rain, snow and single digit temps. I found it, dripping wet in the snow last weekend and feared for it's survival. I hit the power switch and "bing" it turned on. I pressed the shutter switch --"click" --and a picture appeared on the screen. Fantastic!! If you need professional pics--get a pro DSLR. If you need an underwater camera--buy one. if you want a tough camera for the outdoors the that takes great pics and videos then the AW-110 can do it. Tough and reliable it's the best point and click I've ever owned. The best in class I now have 3 Nikon point and clicks, one Nikon DSLR and one SLR that all work great. I also have 3 "other brand" "digital cameras--all broken. I just ordered a new rifle scope --a Nikon . As an outdoor person I appreciate quality and durability.
