Nikon 1 goes hardcore with the AW1

Leave a Reply

I’m one of the few that actually like Nikon’s 1 series of cameras. Nikon today announced a new model in the group.

The AW1 is the the world’s first waterproof and shockproof interchangeable lens camera. The camera is compatible with the 1 line of lenses but it wouldn’t be half as durable without its own line of lenses.  It comes standard with an 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 lens and a wide angle 10mm f/2.8 lens which are both waterproof to 50 feet.

The AW1 features a 14 megapixel sensor and will record HD video. In addition to being a tough little camera it features a depth gauge, GPS, altimeter and a compass. Not bad! It come in 3 colors.

I bet there is a disclaimer somewhere in the manual not to change the lens underwater….
