The new incarnation of the protected Nikon Coolpix compact keeps its most striking feature – the presence of a version in a camouflage design. As well as most of the features and functions. True, if before the protective painting reproduced the “flora” camouflage type, now a more modern so-called “shrapnel” type is adopted. In any case fans of military style in clothes and accessories will like this option. The main thing, having lost the device in woods, is to be able to find it.
Nikon Coolpix AW120 compact camera
16 MP 28-140 mm 5x 3″ $240
16 MP 24-120 mm 5x 3″ NEW
With the release of the AW120 several problems of the predecessor AW110 were solved. First of all, the novelty got a slightly wider zoom with increased to F2.8 aperture ratio. Despite using a screen with higher resolution, the camera battery life increased from 250 to 350 frames. A slightly less noticeable advantage was the increase in available shutter speeds to 1/4000th of a second. You won’t be able to adjust the exposure time manually, but in very bright conditions on the beach or on a snow-covered slope the new camera will work correctly.
The data of the built-in GPS-receiver, electronic compass, altimeter and barometer can now be seen together in a special window, which will be a good help for real travelers and divers. Both models have the same protection characteristics: a depth of 18 meters, falling from 2 meters and freezing cold in -10 degrees are not afraid of them. A 16-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and the C2 processor are responsible for taking pictures. Ready-made pictures, automatically stitched panoramas and videos can be sent directly to the network or via a cell phone using the built-in Wi-Fi module. It can also be used for remote control with “live” image playback on the screen of a smartphone or tablet for Android or iOS.
