Review guidelines
8 August 2013
  • Summary: The new Nikon COOLPIX AW100 is definitely one of the Rugged compacts d the latest, most interesting and high-performance on the market. The available colors are very interesting, even though my favorite remains the purely mimetic perfectly the idea that returns No Limits at the base of the technical implementation and quality of the camera itself.

Nikon Coolpix AW100 is good rugged choice, but not without limitations

29 April 2012
  • Summary: The rugged Nikon Coolpix AW100 is a fine choice for shallow water or dry land adventures -- just make sure you have plenty of light.
  • Pros: The Nikon Coolpix AW100 has good rugged specifications for its price and solid GPS performance. The camera is also fairly easy to use out of the box.
  • Cons: The AW100's slow lens requires more use of high ISO settings or slow shutter speeds. Its controls feel spongy and occasionally unresponsive due to the waterproofing and the body's somewhat slippery.

Nikon Coolpix AW100 Review

17 March 2012
  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix AW100 is available in India at a street price of Rs.15,000. The camera has some really amazing features and looks pretty stylish as well, especially for a rugged camera. It is quite slim, too, as far as compact cameras, in general, are concerned. Performance-wise, it has done really well and with its shock resistant capabilities put to the test, the camera came out on top. A thing that is really going for this camera is its price.
