4Good camera, a couple things could be better
By Christian Sanich
I've owned two of the prior generation of this camera. So I love the camera generally. One thing I don't like on the new camera is the zoom switch. I love that you can use your smart phone as a remote control, but the sequence you have to go through to set that up every time is a little complex. This one is also a little bulkier; I would've thought it would've gotten slimmer.

5Highly recommended
By Lee
After scouting out waterproof cameras for an upcoming hiking trip to Utah, I took a gamble on the Coolpix AW130. It seemed that every waterproof camera in the consumer-grade market had at least a handful of negative reviews, but I've had good luck with Nikon and I liked the features of the AW130, particularly the wireless uploads and GPS.

I "field tested" the AW130 this past week at the Wisconsin Dells and was very impressed with how this camera handled itself. It was often fully submerged and performed admirably in and out of water. I also shot a lot of POV videos on the water slides and was pleased with the video and sound quality.

The image quality is what you might expect out of a camera phone or your basic point-and-shoot. Compared to my Nikon D5100, the image quality doesn't stack up. However, this camera doesn't advertise itself as being comparable to a DSLR, so I don't hold image quality against it. You get what you pay for and that's a sturdy point-and-shoot that can handle the elements. I look forward to bringing this on an upcoming kayak trip as well as the Utah hiking trip.

1Abysmal camera. Do NOT recommend.
By Denni Wilson
Even after seeing some poor reviews, I purchased this camera with the thought that I was better prepared to use it correctly (used a friend's, and have watched several how-to videos on youtube). Took it to the British Virgin Islands. Carefully loaded the SD card and battery, and made sure the seal was intact after I closed it. Tested it in fresh water...no apparent leaks. The very first time I used it snorkeling, bubbles came from the camera housing within 5-10 seconds. I resurfaced, went ashore, and opened the housing. Sea water poured from the camera. Zero use, zero pictures, and a significant amount of money wasted. Not to mention, I got no underwater pics from a trip of a lifetime. I contacted Nikon, and we're working on a solution now.
