Details

The COOLPIX AW120 Waterproof Digital Camera from Nikon is a compact point-and-shoot featuring a 16MP, 1/2.3" CMOS sensor. Its 5x optical zoom NIKKOR glass lens has a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-120mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. Its fast f/2.8 aperture enables effective low-light shooting and shallow depth-of-field effects. Capture high-resolution still images and full HD 1080p video with stereo sound. The AW120 is also equipped with a large, 3.0", 921k-dot OLED monitor.

The camera is underwater-ready with a depth rating of almost 18m. Its durable design also makes it shock-proof against drops of up to 2m and freeze-proof against frigid temperatures as low as -10°c. Hybrid Vibration Reduction works to counteract camera shake to help provide clear, blur-free shots, especially when shooting in low-light or at the telephoto end of the zoom range. Additionally, benefit from built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing you to share instantly to social networking sites and even control the camera remotely via your compatible smartphone or tablet. The COOLPIX AW120 also features built-in GPS functionality, an electronic compass and points of interest to help you find great locations for images and then document your travels and adventures in a photo journal. Nikon ViewNX 2 software is included to help you browse, edit and share your photos and videos.

Additionally, take advantage of 6.9-fps continuous shooting at full resolution. Intelligent Target Finding AF quickly determines your intended subject and puts the focus where it belongs. Center, face priority, manual with 99 focus areas, and subject tracking modes are also available for autofocus. You can also activate the focus lock function.
