PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix AW100 is a rugged point-and-shoot camera that, while a bit on the pricey side, captures sharp images and can take quite a beating without a hiccup.
  • Pros: Sharp photos. Waterproof to 33 feet. Shockproof to 5 feet. Full HD movies. Action button. Fast performance.
  • Cons: Pricey. So-so low-light performance. Limited zoom range. Focus issues while recording video.

What Digital Camera
2 February 2012
  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix AW100 is priced at £299.99 (from Nikon's web site) but shopping around online can get it significantly cheaper, the lowest I found being £249.99, nevertheless, it still positions the AW100 at the higher end of the ruggedised digital compact camera market.You can buy better water...
  • Pros: Feature rich, Waterproof, Freeze proof and shockproof, Filter adapter, Good image quality.
  • Cons: Expensive, Power usage (particularly with GPS switched on), Image Noise

  • Conclusion: The Nikon AW100 offers a tough build that will keep shooting in all conditions. It will survive water down to a depth 10m, drops from 1.5m and temperatures down to -10 degrees celcius, meaning you're well protected whether on the beach or from that pint glass of wine that always gets knocked over.
  • Pros: Packed with features, solid build
  • Cons: Image noise, controls can be a little fiddly, action button controls could be better

  • Excerpt: In the hand the AW100 feels robust - just as its specification suggests -and we found it easy to navigate through the shooting, movie and setup menus. Full HD video capture (1920x1080 @30fps) is also very quick to control, thanks to the dedicated movie-rec button directly below the zoom controls.

  • 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.
