First Look: The rugged Nikon Coolpix AW100

1:53 /

The rugged Nikon Coolpix AW100 is a fine choice for shallow water or dry land adventures -- just make sure you have plenty of light.

-- I'm Josh Goldman senior editor with CNET and this is look at icons high and rugged compact the Coolpix AW one injury. It's rated to be waterproof down to 33 feet shock proof to five feet and freeze proof to fourteen degrees Fahrenheit. Go along with that it also has an electronic compass built team as well as GPS receiver. So you can geotag your photos and track down points of interest. And -- camera also has something that can -- active control which allows you to instead of using its buttons. It allows you to shake the camera and -- the body. In order to I change -- settings. That's good because its buttons are a bit too close together and -- are small and they -- -- -- spongy and likely because of the waterproofing beneath them. And speaking of water proofing the -- battery card slot and ports are all under this single door which is nice. But the lock could be a little bit better a little bit more -- here. -- can also be a bit better is the -- It has a small maximum aperture F 39. Which means if you're shooting in less than full sun. Year probably going to be using high ISOs are slow shutter speeds in order to get a good shot. So well as photos are pretty good when you have plenty of light. Shooting indoors without a flash or deep underwater. Probably won't get you great shots. Otherwise it's a good rugged compact especially in light of its price which is now down below 300 dollars. I'm Josh Goldman and that's look at the Nikon Coolpix EW 100.
