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!
Summary: After 7 months of use (and 12+ years of 6 other digital camera models), I am very satisfied with Coolpix AW110's performance, HD quality, and reliability. It truly is water-proof. Though in my case, it's only been through shallow water and occasional splashes, I wasn't really looking for, say, deep-water dive resistance anyway. There are only two minor drawbacks.
Excerpt: I wanted a water proof camera and was looking at the different ones. I decided to go with a refurbished camera to save some money. The only thing that would give me the idea that it was refurbished was that it came in a basic white box. I only used the camera a couple times under water and I am happy with the pictures. I shout some video with it and not in the best lighting conditions and the video came out pretty good.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I'm a photo enthusiast and I wanted something I could use in the lake, ocean and pool and this compact beauty makes it fun and easy. The buttons are small enough to eliminate the need for a cumbersome case, but with a depth limit of 59ft, I can go pretty deep. It's so simple to use and operate too! My only problem is that some of my photos don't have the quality they would with a professional grade camera, but for price and it's uses, I won't complain.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Summary: So far we have had this camera for a month and mostly used it on our cruise to the Bahamas. The camera takes great pictures on land and underwater. So far no leaks. The underwater pics need some post processing to clear the blue tint. I used basic color correction in Photoshop Elements and the pictures look great.
Summary: My wife had been asking for a camera to go underwater. I procured this one although I am a canon shooter (several DSLR and a G15) and do not consider changing that. It was part of the four cameras my wife and I took for a month-long trip to Vietnam and Cambodia over the new year, then back home in Costa Rica, so it has seen plenty of action, from the jungles (mud and humidity) of Angkor and Monteverde to the beaches (see water and sand) of Phu Quoc and Punta Leona.
