Nikon Coolpix AW100 Digital Camera
- 16.1 Megapixel BSI CMOS Sensor
- 5x Optical Zoom (28-140mm 35mm equiv.)
- 3.0” 460k-dot LCD Screen
- Waterproof to 10m
- Shockproof to 2m
- Built-in GPS with Maps
Movie Feature – captures Full HD video* with audio up to 1920x1080p resolution at 30 frames per second (fps) as well as High Speed Movies at up to 240fps – great for slow motion action replay. Optical zoom functions during video recording. Movie length is up to 29 minutes or 4GB file size.
* We recommend using class 4 or higher memory cards for recording high definition video
Action Control - Enables one-hand gloved control over assigned camera functions, whether wearing ski gloves or skin-diving gloves.
GPS geotagging and World Map display - A high-performance GPS chip records location data for each shot, and the system's updatable A-GPS (Assisted GPS) file helps minimize the time required to provide position information. The system can also be set to log your movements, even when not taking pictures. Pictures and routes can then be viewed using the new built-in world map display that also.
Points of Interest – POI settings for recording and displaying place names
Digital Compass - records the camera's orientation when shooting.
Underwater scene mode - in Easy Auto mode, white balance is automatically adjusted using exclusive parameters to prevent an unnatural green or blue cast in images captured underwater. Also high sensitivity and both optical and electronic vibration reduction is enabled to capture sharper underwater shots.
5x Optical Internal Zoom Lens – high-quality internal zoom lens is virtually flush to camera body and delivers 28mm wide-angle to capture great landscape, group and underwater shots.
16 megapixel Backside Illuminated CMOS sensor - As light is more effectively received by the image sensor, even images captured at the maximum sensitivity setting exhibit significantly less noise – improves low-light performance.
Easy auto mode - camera identifies the type of subject and automatically applies the optimum scene mode
High Resolution 3-inch LCD monitor – beautiful large and high resolution 460K LCD screen with wide viewing angle – great for framing and reviewing your photos.
Smart portrait mode – helps to better capture beautiful portraits
19 scene modes – great range of scene modes for easily optimizing camera settings for a host of different shooting conditions.
Subject tracking - camera automatically tracks and retains focus and exposure on the specified subject
Supplied filter adapter - can be used to attach optional filters with a 40.5-mm diameter thread.
Dual Image Stabilisation - Image sensor shift and electronic vibration reduction (VR) function, to capture sharper images with less blur and more stable movie shooting.HDR (high dynamic range) – enable this option in the Backlighting scene mode, images exhibiting rich expression of tones and noticeably less loss of detail in shadows and highlights can be captured by combining multiple shots taken in quick succession
