The Nikon CoolPix AW100 is a versatile camera which takes terrific digital photographs and is also waterproof. This camera can photo tag in addition to tracking via GPS. It can also take professional photographs where there isn't much light.
Many waterproof cameras do not perform well because they lack the ability to change settings when they are underwater. Fortunately this isn't the case with the Nikon CoolPix AW100. It has specific settings to take pictures underwater and makes color adjustments so the photograph is just as crisp as it is on land. This camera is also very versatile and can be adjusted for panoramas, beach, portrait, night landscape, sunset, and so on.
It has a large LCD display which is 3 inches. Buttons towards the right so it is simple to adjust settings at the same time you are taking pictures. The resolution for the Nikon CoolPix AW100 is 16 megapixels and can adjust to just about any environmental condition. The photographs will look sharp if you are in Minnesota in the middle of winter or Death Valley in the dead of summer. Snapping pictures in low light isn't a problem because of the CMOS sensing technology. There are six automatic optical zooming settings so make auto focusing a breeze.
The internal memory is not that hefty at only 83MB. It is enough to hold a few photographs. But to store thousands of photographs you need to purchase a SD card. A good thing is sad cards are relatively inexpensive and you get a high quality 16GB SD card for $10 to $15 when they are on sale.
The camera buttons are very sensitive for this Nikon model, which some people like, while others find annoying. The reason for these buttons is so it is easy to use if the picture taker is wearing heavy gloves on a job site or a ski vacation. This feature cannot be adjusted so the buttons can be just as sensitive when you are using your bare hands. So if you aren't paying attention you might mistakenly change your settings.
This Nikon underwater camera will automatically tag photographs with your location via GPS technology. The fully integrated GPS embeds the city name when a picture is taken. The GPS comes in handy when you are taking pictures in an unfamiliar place and you suddenly get lost. This camera will save the day because it uses both Google Earth and a compass.
