The black COOLPIX AW130 Waterproof Digital Camera from Nikon is a compact point-and-shoot with a 16MP, 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-120mm. Wide-angle to telephoto perspectives are covered, and its fast f/2.8 maximum aperture provides effective low-light shooting and shallow depth-of-field effects. 5x optical zoom is included, and when digital Dynamic Fine Zoom is enabled, up to 10x zoom is possible. Hybrid Vibration Reduction minimizes camera shake from appearing in still photos as well as Full HD 1080p videos, both of which can be seen on the large, 3.0", 921k-dot rear OLED monitor.
The COOLPIX AW130 is underwater-ready with a depth rating of 100'. Its durable design also makes it shock-proof against drops of up to 7' and freeze-proof against frigid temperatures as low as 14°F. Aside from being ready to shoot even under extreme environments, the camera is designed to allow you to share your images as quickly as possible. Equipped Android v4.0 or later smart devices have the option of connecting to the COOLPIX AW130 with NFC (near field communication technology), and built-in Wi-Fi allows you to share to social networking sites and even control the camera remotely via your compatible Apple or Android smartphone or tablet. This camera also features built-in GPS functionality, mapping, an electronic compass, and points of interest to not only help you more easily document your travels and adventures but find memorable photo locations as well. Aside from being able to upload images to your favorite social networking sites, Nikon View NX2 software is downloadable to help you browse, edit, and share your photos and videos.
