Nikon has announced the interchangeable lens camera Nikon 1 AW1, which the company claims is the world’s first waterproof and shockproof camera of its kind, the Nikon 1 AW1 is a mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera, besides being waterproof this camera is shockproof and freeze-proof as-well. Design of this new product seems identical to the Nikon J1, which came into the market in 2011.

The camera, touted to be designed for harsh climates is supposed to be waterproof down to 49 feet and freezeproof down to -10° C. Despite its rugged built, the Nikon 1 AW1 is supposed to be lightweight and packed with features like in-built GPS tracker, altimeter, depth gauge, an electronic compass and a virtual horizon indicator, that aim to make travel into harsh climatic conditions easier. When shooting underwater, the device has a custom white balance setting to get perfect clicks in the unusual conditions underwater.

The camera features a 14.2-megapixel CX-format CMOS sensor and Nikon’s EXPEED 3A image processing engine for high quality images and HD videos. The Nikon 1 AW1 also sports a wide ISO range (160 to 6400), allowing users to capture sharp photos in a variety of lighting conditions, even while handheld. The camera comes with Nikon’s Advanced Hybrid Autofocus (AF) system that lets you capture moving action. It has a 73-point AF array that can let you lock into action within approximately 80-milliseconds. The camera also allows for what Nikon touts to be the world’s fastest continuous shooting frame rate at approximately 15fps with AF and 60fps when the focus is locked.

 The Nikon 1 AW 1, like the Coolpix AW110 includes Action Control that allows users to control certain functions of the camera simply by swinging it in the air. The Creative Mode menu provides an easy way to utilize full manual exposure controls (P,S,A,M) as well as Selective Color, Miniature, Soft, Night Landscape, Backlighting and Night Portrait modes.
