NIkon's durable and versatile camera can take a licking and keep on clicking.

Rugged qualities ensure a built-to-last construction ; Sharp images

Occasional problem with inner glass of lens misting up ; No eye level viewfinder

The Nikon 1 AW1 is the company’s most fully realized compact system camera of the past three years. It’s a rugged model that, unusually, takes really good photographs, and with consistency. Perhaps that’s something worth paying a premium.

Nikon 1 AW1

 

The Nikon 1 AW1 is the first interchangeable lens camera that you can take deep underwater, but it's best left in automatic mode.

Rugged design. Waterproof to 49 feet. Integrated GPS. Good high ISO performance. Very fast burst shooting and focus. Unique shooting modes. 1080i60 and slow-motion video support.

Pricey. Controls may frustrate advanced photographers. Electronic shutter limits sync speed. External adapter required to add Wi-Fi support. Limited lens selection.

The AW1 has a built-in GPS that automatically adds your geographic location to photos. It's a great feature for a camera that's likely to spend some time traveling; with the right software or Web service (Lightroom, Flickr, and Picasa will do fine) you...

Nikon 1 AW1 Review

 

The Nikon 1 AW1 is a water-, freeze-, dust- and shockproof compact system camera featuring a 14.2-megapixel “CX” format sensor and the Nikon 1 lens mount. Boasting continuous shooting speeds of 15fps with continuous autofocus and 60fps with fixed-point...

It would be easy to classify the 14.2 megapixel Nikon 1 AW1 as a specialist or niche product and perhaps even dismiss it as such given the at first slightly high seeming £750 asking price on launch, and whilst it is certainly currently in a class of...

Nikon AW1 Review

 

If you're in the market for a weather-sealed, interchangeable-lens camera, there are plenty of options out there. Many of them will handle quite a beating, as well.

Nikon 1 AW1 Review

 

Although this camera has many good features, it disappoints in two of the most important areas – durability and longevity. The camera was unable to withstand our underwater testing, which resulted in camera failure. The short life of the battery is...

This camera has interchangeable lenses and takes great dry-land and underwater pictures.

The camera broke during our water testing.

We can only hope that the Nikon's underwater failure during our testing was a fluke, but it doesn't make us optimistic about its water resistance claims.
