Nikon AW130 Review

 

The biggest frontier in waterproof cameras over the course of the past year has been in the depth department. Where Canon's D30 came out last year rated at a then record-breaking 82 feet, 49 feet deeper than the D20, Nikon's AW130 comes in rated at 100...

The Nikon COOLPIX AW130 is a rugged waterproof compact with a 16 Megapixel sensor and a 5x stabilised optical zoom. It's waterproof to a depth of 30 meters, shock proof to 2.1 meters, dust-proof and can operate in temperatures down to -10C. The AW130...

Water-proof to 30 metres ; 5x f2.8-4.9 optical zoom ; 1cm close focus in macro mode ; Wifi with NFC ; GPS with built-in mapping

Poor control layout/design ; Action (shake)Control impractical

The Nikon COOLPIX A130 is the most waterproof compact currently on the market. With a depth rating of 30 meters it'll go twice as deep as the Olympus TOUGH TG4 and TG860. If you want to dive deeper with a camera you'll need to think about a...

Nikon COOLPIX AW130 Review

 

The Nikon COOLPIX AW130 is the most durable waterproof camera we reviewed, and it's one of the best cameras for taking both unwater and dry-land photographs. This device is loaded with features, including easy image transferring with the use of the...

This camera is durable, functional down to 100 feet underwater and takes great dry-land and underwater pictures.

Other cameras take brighter underwater photos.

The AW130 is our top underwater camera because it strikes a rare balance of durability and picture quality.
