The orange 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 59'. Its durable design also makes it shock-proof against drops of up to 6.6' and freeze-proof against frigid temperatures as low as 14°F. 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.

16MP CMOS Sensor

The 16MP, 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and the image processor work together to deliver high-resolution still images and full HD video, plus fast contrast-detect autofocus, ISO sensitivity from 125-6400 for clear images in low light--even without flash in certain situations. 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.

5x Optical Zoom NIKKOR Glass Lens

Provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-120mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, and a fast f/2.8 aperture for effective low-light shooting and shallow depth-of-field effects. Lens includes 2 ED elements to help correct chromatic aberration. Aperture offers ND filter (-2 AV) selection.

3.0" OLED Monitor

Large, 3.0", 921k-dot OLED screen features an anti-reflection coating and 5-level brightness adjustment.

Full HD Video

Record full HD 1080p video at 30 fps or 1080i at 60 fps--with stereo sound, thanks to the built-in microphone. Then grab a cable (available separately) and connect to an HDTV to see your creations on a larger scale. The following HDMI output resolutions can be selected: auto, 480p, 720p and 1080i. Capture smooth slow motion sequences, too. Strap the camera to yourself with the optional chest harness to capture action videos of your adventures, leaving your hands free.

Waterproof, Shock-proof and Freeze-proof

Built for durability, the AW120 is ready for swimming or diving with a depth rating of 59' for a duration of 60 min (JIS/IEC protection class 8 / IPX8), and also features shock-proofing against 6.6' drops (MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5) and freeze-proofing against temperatures as low as 14°F--though underwater, it's recommended that you operate the camera at 32°F or higher. Nikon's Action Control brings fast and easy operation to gloved hands.

Image Stabilization

Hybrid Vibration Reduction helps 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.

Easy Shooting in Various Situations

In addition to the target-finding autofocus, the camera features subject tracking, as well as a motion detection function that automatically kicks in when your subject is moving fast, selecting a faster shutter speed and higher ISO for sharper, clearer photos. The Smart Portrait System and Scene Auto Selector take the guesswork out of shooting, leaving you free to focus on getting your image while the camera does the thinking, automatically activating the best settings for the given situation.

Continuous Shooting
