STAR OF THE DEPTHS
The Nikon Coolpix AW110 is built like a tank. It better be. For this is among the few waterproof and shockproof cameras available in India. The AW110 is a rugged compact camera with features like GPS, altimeter and compass that make it a great option to carry on treks and camping trips. The build quality on this camera is amazing. The battery and SD card are behind a water tight slot, which we thought was a very good feature. This is because this camera can stay waterproof in depths of up to 18 metres, good enough for scuba diving and maybe a dip in the pond. The on/off button and trigger have all been made with this feature in mind.
With no good waterbodies around, we tested the underwater skills of this camera in a bucket of water. The results were really good, as the camera was always on focus above and below water. But it is better to use the camera in the 1080p video mode was shooting underwater was clicking pics while swimming might not be so easy for amateurs. Thankfully, this camera also has a movie light mode that will come in handy while shooting in murky waters.
The camera gives good results, even in low light. The 16MP CMOS sensor is good enough to be used for non-adventurous events too. Buy the Nikon Coolpix AW110 if you too are made for the outdoors like this camera.
