Excerpt: As a young child the bedroom was the perfect place for activities. Wether it be colouring, puzzles, lego or crafts, one thing remains constant: space. You need space for activities. No space means a struggle to compete with the task at hand. It’s no different in the adult world, when your activities upgrade to that of rock climbing, surfing and mountain biking the fact still remains the same: You need space.
Excerpt: Earlier in 2014, Nikon announced their latest "all weather" series camera, the Coolpix AW120. This "lifeproof" style camera boasts a waterproof rating down to 59 feet, plus the ability to survive drops of up to 6.6 feet and temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C). Add to that a 16-megapixel CMOS image sensor capable of recording HD Video and capturing 6.9 frames-per-second Continuous Shooting (stills).
Conclusion: When it comes to image quality, there are cameras that will perform better than the AW120. It’s an easy, basic camera that takes good photos that will satisfy its intended user. However, there are smartphones that take photos that are just as good. But what’s appealing here are the rugged features. Being able to take it into a pool or ocean, or into the rain, is a unique feature that makes it a standout.
