Great physical durability, but can not go the distance.

Summary: I use this camera for work and my work requires me to take anywhere from 100 pictures a day to 500+. On the days of heavy use it starts to freeze up on me after taking about 150 pictures. I love the durability of the camera as I am in the construction industry, and the GPS function as well (required for work). I would not buy this camera again though do to the freezing it just takes me that much longer to get my work done.
I really like the camera, but the packaging appears to have been opened. - 3 stars because I'm not sure if this was new

Summary: I like this camera so much that this was my second purchase of an AW110. This second one was for my daughter who wanted a small, simple to use camera for traveling. This is a rugged camera that I like to take on hiking trips. It takes terrific outdoor pictures and is easy to use. I will never submerge this camera in spite of it's claims to waterproofness since it is clear the seal on the side door that covers the battery and SIM card doesn't look like it would hold up to...
Summary: After using the camera a bit - I can now comment. On the positive side the camera takes nice pictures and uses a standard USB charger, it is nice not to have to carry a separate charging device. However, the camera and its features are not very user friendly. The flash options are either Auto or Off. There were a couple of situations where we had a bright background and needed to use a flash and could not - because there is no "flash on" option.
Summary: So excited to get this new camera but didn't have the foresight to test it out before we went on vacation... threw it in the pool, took a few fun shots, then off to the beach and noticed the lens fogging up... before long the screen was foggy too! Let everything dry out checked to make sure it wasn't something obvious and easy to fix, got another few dry photos out of it before it stopped working completely.
Summary: I've owned this camera now for just under 30 days and have used to it on camping.hiking/backpacking trips making videos and taking pictures. I've hooked up a tripod and monopod into this camera for "selfie" type shoots. I'm currently awaiting a replacement because, even though I was careful, somehow my tripod mount screw at the bottom has become stripped already and the camera falls right off the tripod....
Summary: I have been an avid compact digital camera user for about 11 years... I started with Nikon Coolpix in May 2002 and then had 4 Canons before I bought this Nikon in December 2013. I wanted a waterproof camera that had extra features, because, let's face it, Canons tend to lack on the cool features category. This camera let me down a LOT. In many of my comparisons, I am comparing to my Canon Powershot 310 HS ELPH.
Summary: This pictures and videos were incredible. It took equally high quality land and underwater shots. The auto-feature did great at accurately assessing the conditions and automatically switching to landscape, underwater, macro. The GPS feature was extremely accurate. All of that doesn't matter if it's not actually waterproof though. It made it through my 47 foot (max depth) 47 minute bottom time dive and two snorkel trips.
Summary: The Camera died after I used it to take pictures in swimming pool. The only time I actually put the camera underwater was to show that it was waterproof. The screen on the back then stopped working (I could see water trapped in the screen). Soon after the camera would no longer turn on. I had seen reviews warning of this, but I figured that they must have done something wrong. Nope. I'm in contact with Nikon to ship to in for repairs.
