The recently launched camera from the Nikon, the AW1 is the first dustproof, waterproof and shock resistant, freeze proof interchangeable lens camera. Till date many companies have released weather proof cameras but it is very first interchangeable lens camera to come with 15 metres waterproof guarantee with freeze proofing of -10 degrees and rugged credential dust proofing.
What I loved about the Aw1 is it’s amazing in built features which comprise of electronic compass, GLONASS, GPS, electronic compass, virtual horizon, dual altimeter and underwater shooting. The camera has been effortlessly designed with underwater shooting qualities.
The camera is compatible with the present range of 1 lens which is waterproof and rugged thus, Nikon launches two new lenses along with the release of AW1.
It is an amazing effort from the company. Nikon will be releasing the underwater Speed light in the next year to work with the AW1. The camera has been priced at $749.99 with the standard lens of 11-27.5mm lens. They are releasing the lens in the early October. It is the first camera from the shed of Nikon and it will surely be a huge success among adventure loving people. Use it in toughest of the weather!
