Buyer Beware, this camera is not even close to water proof
30 October 2014
Summary: Terrible product. It was only used a handful of times and it became water damaged twice, or on roughly 50% of its uses. The second time was a month out of warranty, but Nikon still wanted $125 or more to repair the same issue that they did not repair the previous time it broke. I purchased because I had good luck with Nikon in the past, but not with this camera. Would highly recommend choosing a different product.
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.
Do not buy! This camera couldn't handle taking pictures in rain!

Summary: At first this seemed like a great camera. After a few uses, though, the camera would no longer work after I took a picture while it was raining. I sent it in for repair and Nikon would not fix it because of "corrosion damage." I did absolutely nothing wrong that could have resulted in this type of damage, and I am 100% certain this is due to poor manufacturing. I am extremely disappointed that I wasted all of this money on a terrible product.
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.
In poor condition for a purported "Nikon factory reconditioned" camera

Summary: Camera arrived today with multiple scratches on front camera body and on the view screen. In poor condition for a purported "Nikon factory reconditioned" camera. Be very careful or you might get stuck with a beat up, used, misrepresented camera.
Summary: I bought the AW110 for our honeymoon to Hawaii last year. My wife and I used it snorkeling twice on that trip; we went back to Hawaii this summer and used it for snorkeling. It worked for about 30 minutes and then the screen went black. I sent it to Nikon, after speaking w/ their CS and they told me to mail it to their service center in Torrance, CA.
