Perhaps saying that a camera straddles the Mendoza line isn't the most rousing endorsement, but the Nikon AW1 offers a very average performance—with a twist. A ruggedized interchangeable lens camera is certainly a novel take on the mirrorless compact,...

The Nikon 1 J3 is a solid ILC, but it didn't overwhelm us. However, take that same camera and make it waterproof and shockproof, name it the AW1, and it's hard to not make an overwhelming recommendation. Also, there's nothing else in the world like it....

In the AW1, Nikon has delivered the most rugged system camera on the market. Despite being built like a tank and able to survive demanding drops and harsh environments, it is not entirely faultless. The lack of manual controls makes it incredibly slow to...

Nikon has taken a bit of a risk in making the AW1 a waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof DSLM that's also mainly geared up for use in Auto mode. But as if being the first underwater mirrorless lens-switcher wasn't innovative enough, the AW1 also...

Image quality of this mirrorless depends on what it is compared against. Its 2.7X crop-factor sensor puts it well ahead of most fixed-lens cameras, including all other waterproof camera, yet it reamains behind the majority of mirrorless ones.Still, the...

Et programhjul (PSAM), større knapper og bedre batterilevetid er det eneste, vi savner på Nikon 1 AW1. Med høj billedkvalitet, god brugervenlighed og ekstreme egenskaber som 15 meters dykkedybde har kameraet ikke rigtig nogen seriøse konkurrenter i...

Bortsett från en skrattretande kort batteritid på knappa 200 bilder i kallt väder, fungerade Nikons vattentäta systemkamera felfritt under testperioden. Att bildkvaliteten dessutom är bra är absolut ingen nackdel. Därför tvekar jag inte att rekommendera...
