You live to be "in the moment," so anything that brings back the rush is worth it. The Nikon COOLPIX AW100 is water-proof, shock-proof and freeze-proof, so you can take it on all of your extreme adventures. It packs a 5x Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens and a 16.0-MP CMOS sensor to record low-light and fast-action photos and Full HD (1080p) movies. Life on the road deserves GPS + e-Compass, so the AW100's got these too. Add a 3-inch monitor, our new Action Control for easily adjusting settings when wearing gloves plus a range of in-camera special effects, and you've got a camera as rugged as you. Start saving those action-packed memories every view and heartbeat.
Awesome point and shoot1/17/2013
Searched around for a durable point and shoot that I would not have to worry about breaking while climbing, caving, hiking, adventuring, etc... I have found it! With built in GPS world map this is the best one on the market. 1080p video, SDXC up to 64GB in one card. The optical zoom is superb and the picture quality is adequate overall. I am an SLR user so to me I just wanted to capture those moments where my SLR will never go.
