Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix AW110 successfully replaces its predecessor, the well-reviewed Coolpix AW100, with the addition of Wi-Fi and a sharper OLED display. The AW110 is an extremely rugged camera that divers will love as it can go deeper underwater than any other camera on the market.
Pros: Wi-Fi, Goes deeper than any camera in its class, Extensive GPS feature set, Altimeter
Cons: Blue cast in underwater photos/movies, Display very difficult to see outdoors and underwater
Summary: 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.
Pros: Water-sealed, rugged body, Very fast burst modes, Good image quality, Good video quality, Built-in Wi-Fi, GPS, altimeter and compass, Action (gesture) control for underwater shooting, Quick effects feature is convenient, Slim body fits in a pocket, AV cables included
Cons: Low light performance isn't great, Few photo filters and effects, Can't use flash in burst mode, Lack of dial hinders menu navigation, 5X zoom is modest, No manual or semi-manual modes
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.
Summary: Nikon as mentioned earlier is a new comer to the waterproof/rugged camera scene. It is only Nikon’s second rugged compact, yet it packs most the features found on cameras that have been around for generations in terms of its design and handling, features, performance and photo quality.
Summary: The Nikon AW110 is responsive to use and there’s little to fault in regard to its image quality performance. The screen has a slight green cast and you should bear in mind the sensitivity ceiling isn’t as high as some other waterproof compacts.
Excerpt: The rainy season is here and this is possibly the most dangerous time of the year for all your electronic gadgets. If you are an avid shutterbug, then your camera is also one such gadget you don't want to get wet.
Pros: Waterproof, Dustproof; Shockproof; Good performance; Great OLED screen; Wi-Fi remote control from smartphones; Various filters; Price.
Cons: Noticeable fringing in macro shots; Lacks manual control; Wi-Fi doesn't support web uploading and printing.
Summary: Nikon's latest update to its go-anywhere compact keeps its rugged rivals at arm's length. Encased in an almost full metal jacket, the AW110 feels more hard-wearing than its slightly more plasticky Panasonic FT5 and Olympus TG-2 opponents.
Pros: As rugged as Burt Reynolds, Glove mode keeps your fingers toasty, Detailed pictures
Cons: Weak zoom, Lacks standard micro-USB connection
