Style Name: with 11-27.5mm lensColor Name: White
I've been using the AW1 for a few days now and have found some very good things, and some not so good things about it. I should start by saying that I'm a professional photographer and use full frame and micro 4/3 cameras with high-end lenses. So, that's my point of reference. However, for family vacations that are often by a beach or lake, I have been using a Canon D10 which is now several years old and I've been searching for a higher-quality waterproof camera to replace it. The AW1 seemed like the ideal replacement - especially after reading the reviews of the new crop of rugged/waterproof cameras whose IQ is not any better than the old D10. So, I bought one as soon as they were introduced. I haven't tried it underwater, so my comments are based on landscape shots taken in bright light. Also, I use DXO or ACR to process RAW images and neither have announced a profile for the AW1, so my comments are based on out-of-the-camera JPGs.

First the Good (just the highlights):
* Build quality is superb. You could probably pound nails with this thing and not damage it. It feels solid as a brick (also weighs as much as a brick). Easily the most solid camera I've picked up in a long time. It's a pleasure to hold.
* Controls are smooth and positive in their action.
* Pretty good results on Auto mode. JPGs are fairly clean - certainly better than any of the much less expensive rugged cameras. I haven't tried RAW yet because I use ACR, or DXO, and neither have announced a profile for the AW1.
* Some nice features. For example, Auto HDR works very well.
* Amazing frame rate: 60fps
* Super fast at everything: start-up is instant. Focus is instant. For all practical purposes, everything is instantaneous. Just a pleasure to use.

Style Name: with 11-27.5mm lensColor Name: White
It's hard to give anything 5 stars, but this camera is nothing short of phenomenal. This camera is the only game in town, as of late 2013, which can take high quality action shots but doesn't cost many thousands of dollars.

My primary use for this camera is taking kitesurfing pictures. That means it's exposed to freezing cold (yes we kitesurf in the winter), and it's immersed in salt water. The pictures coming out of this camera, with no manipulation, are amazing. There simply is no other ruggedized action camera that can hold a candle to this, especially at this price point. I've been through two waterproof cameras so far, a Pentax WG-3, and a Canon waterproof point and shoot. I was disappointed in these. They took noisy pictures, and their advertised wide apertures only worked when you were far away from the subject. Zoomed in, they missed the subject or blurred out almost every time.

I paired this camera with the kit zoom lens, and took some photos on full auto which took my breath away when I put them on a large monitor:

[...]

I also got the NIKKOR 32mm f/1.2 lens for dry-land portrait shots, and am similarly blown away by the quality.

Loves:
The battery lasts respectably long and I don't feel I need to have a spare. The flash only pops up when you tell it to. The image quality is amazing. Even when it gets grainy in really low light, it has a film-like grain to it. The colors are amazing out of the camera, with no extra processing needed.

Gripes:
I couldn't care less about GPS. I'd rather have built in Bluetooth to control the camera through my smartphone. I'd rather have built in WiFi to transfer the images out of the phone without taking the bloody card out. It's crazy that this isn't built in.

Style Name: with 11-27.5mm lensColor Name: White Verified Purchase
I've really enjoyed my camera, I used it during my vacations to orlando and got a chance to test underwater at the waterpark, it was good to be able to take pictures and film underwater and at the same time dont worry about the shocks. I've been a very unlucky person with devices all my life, usually nothing lasts too long before breaking in my hands, but this camera i think will survive. Im not a pro so I cannot say much about the quality of the pictures, i like them but im not amazed, maybe if i knew how to use it better i could achieve better results. The battery lasted long enough everyday from start to end, and I did took a many pictures. Only "bad" thing I would say is the weight, it is heavy but you get used to it quickly. I love this camera and probabbly will keep on this line of cameras if nikons comes up with new ones.

Also its nice to be worryless and be able to enjoy the moments without even thinking to put your camera away for it to be safe, with this camera you will never have to put it in a safe place,

Style Name: with 11-27.5mm lensColor Name: Silver Verified Purchase
I’m a Nikon owner, currently D800, D300S, several Nikkor lenses, going back many years to my D80 days. I did venture to Canon with the waterproof D10 only because at the time Nikon, did not have a similar point-n-shoot for my beach and outdoor activities where a DSLR was not practical. I must say, the D10 was a good camera with decent IQ for a point-n-shoot, both above and below the water. When Nikon came out with the AW100, I bought one because, well, I’m Nikonian by heart and using the D10 seemed wrong (LOL). The AW100 was a big disappointment compared to the Canon D10. Image quality of the AW100 was bad! But this is about the Nikon 1 AW1, so I will not go into details about that. I just wanted to preface this review with my AW100 experience because it made me VERY hesitant to buy the AW1, even though they are really totally different cameras (point-n-shoot vs interchangeably lens / mirrorless). I took the risk and bought one after doing some research and reading ‘professional’ reviews. I have been using the Nikon 1 AW1 since November 2013. I have used it on the cold beaches and wetsuit temperature waters of Southern California (November), and in the tropical, very warm and humid beaches of Boracay Island, Philippines (December 2013). I am so pleased and actually very surprised at the IQ and overall performance of the AW1. The images I have are sharp and the colors are true. Infinitely better than the AW100. For the ruggedized outdoor class of cameras, the AW1 is amazing. I no longer feel the need to bring my D800 and take chances with it to places where the AW1 was made for – active, outdoor, wet, sandy, dusty places. No need to “be careful” all the time as I am with the DSLRs - just drop the AW1 in a backpack and go!Read more ›
