Excerpt: In January of 2013, Nikon introduced two more durable "Life-proof" style cameras. Life-proof point-and-shoot cameras are built with outdoor activities in mind. They're great for snorkeling, hiking, and many winter and summer sports. The Coolpix AW110 will take you to depths of about 60 feet, survive drops of up to 6.7 feet, and work in temperatures as chilly as 14 degrees F.
Excerpt: With the Coolpix AW110, Nikon corrects an injustice. With cellphone connectivity ubiquitous, and tethering common, photographers everywhere want to get their photos off their cameras more quickly these days. If you were shooting with last year's Coolpix AW100, though, you were left fiddling with cables -- or worse still, transferring flash cards between camera and reader -- to get to your images.
Excerpt: With the Nikon Coolpix AW110, you will get one of the best waterproof cameras available. Its exceptional image quality, versatility and durability set it apart from the competition. Packed with features that include a built-in GPS and Wi-Fi for sharing images, it earns our TopTenREVIEWS Bronze Award. The Nikon Coolpix AW100 is the perfect companion for your next adventure.
Pros: The Nikon Coolpix AW110 offers outstanding image quality, Wi-Fi and a built-in GPS.
Cons: The Wi-Fi cannot be activated by a button on the camera itself. You have to access the menu first.
Summary: The Coolpix AW110 is a capable rugged camera with good photo quality for its class, an elaborate GPS feature, Wi-Fi for remote camera control, and a nice movie mode - all without breaking the bank. It can also go further underwater than any of its peers. Downsides include smudged details, blue color casts underwater, poor outdoor display visibility, and below average battery life.

Conclusion: If this is your first toughcam and, for some reason, you cannot find an AW100 for sale anywhere else, then by all means purchase a Coolpix AW110. This is especially relevant if you plan to use your new adventure cam for serious adventuring, like diving or climbing. The thick exterior probably isn't the most attractive on the market—in fact it looks rather toylike—but this camera's armor will hold up better than most competitors, and image quality is solid too.
