Summary: After using it as a "regular" camera for two months and feeling very satisfied, I decided to use it in the water for the first time last week, and in some hours it stopped working. When I opened it was totally wet!!! I'm returning to my country and will lose the Nikon Warranty. Very disappointed.
Summary: DO NOT BUY This Camera. I researched this camera extensively here on amazon and on the internet. I saw that others had leak problems but chalked it up to them being incompetent at closing the camera. I purchased the camera and initially was disappointed with the quality of the pictures but eventually got it worked out by changing the settings.
This is the best compact camera I have ever owned!

Summary: This is my second Nikon CoolPix camera. The first was a model AW120 which I lost on an airplane. They are so identical in quality and performance I found out I wasted money when I bought the first AW120. The AW110 is every bit as good as the AW120 and cost a lot less. I have taken hundreds of pictures with both cameras and used them in the Carribean underwater without any issues.
Summary: I am incredibly disappointed. I have an earlier version of the Coolpix AW110 and it works well and does what I need it to do. I was pretty impressed with it as a point and shoot camera. I decided to get this one for a beach vacation we were going on and it worked okay - the option to change the pictures instantly was a neat feature. But sometimes the camera would freeze in the middle of taking the picture.
Summary: bought this camera last year, took to mexico snorkeling & after 3 pictures the screen went black & stayed black for 6 months after! It just turned on randomly, we didnt want to risk another black out this year on our new mexico trip so we purchased a under water dry bag to place the camera in. Unfortunately the dry bag leaked and approximately 1 tablespoon of water got into the bag and the screen blacked out again, after the camera dried out the screen came back on.
Summary: Camera worked great until I used it underwater. I followed the instructions and tried not to keep the camera submerged underwater for too long. The screen went blank after my 3rd day of vacation in the Caribbean. I found out that it was still taking pictures but the screen did not work so I was unable to change settings. I am very disappointed and very sad.
Summary: Great waterproof camera...so far. I did a lot of research before going with this camera. I used it for one week everyday in Hawaii while on vacation and had no issues including a 17 mile kayaking trip down the Napali coast with the camera tied to my life jacket (the ocean was rough and the ways were splashing on the camera all day long). Time will tell if it stays waterproof, but I took amazing underwater pics of fish and sea turtles!
