Nikon Coolpix AW120 review

 

The Nikon Coolpix AW120 isn't for everyone. It's for holidaymakers looking for an easy-to-use tough camera that will accompany them into the pool or ocean.

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...

Nikon Coolpix AW120

 

With Wi-Fi, GPS, and an OLED display, the Nikon Coolpix AW120 is one of the better rugged compact cameras you can buy, but it's not quite an Editors' Choice.

Sharp 5x zoom lens. 24mm wide angle. 3-inch OLED display. Waterproof to 59 feet. Integrated Wi-Fi and GPS.

Images are on the noisy side. No external charger included.

Both GPS and Wi-Fi are integrated here. The GPS module adds your location information to photos; it takes about a minute to lock onto a signal, but updated pretty quickly after that in my tests. You can transfer photos from the AW120 to an iOS or...

Just as rugged as its predecessor, the new AW120 gives you a better lens for shooting underwater or in low-light conditions.

Nikon AW120 Review

 

The rugged, weatherproof Nikon AW120 has some pretty big boots to fill. It follows in the footsteps of 2013's AW110, a strong contender in our 2013 Best Tough / Waterproof Camera Shootout, and recipient of a Dave's Pick thanks to good underwater...

Available from March 2014, the Nikon Coolpix AW120 ships in four body colors: black, blue, orange, or camouflage. List pricing is set at around US$350. A selection of silicone jackets will be available as well, in colors including black, blue, orange,...

Nikon COOLPIX AW120

 

Back in 2012, I reviewed the Nikon COOLPIX AW100, so I was excited when Nikon announced the COOLPIX AW120, their third generation camera in the rugged compact segment. What improvements has Nikon made?

Rugged build; improved low-light performance

Small buttons; position of Movie button; strap; no RAW

The Nikon COOLPIX AW120 is a tough camera that performs well. If you’re in the market for a rugged compact camera, you owe it to yourself to take a look.
