Rated top 5 in Travel Cameras. “Rugged, light, easy to use and capable of taking great photographs, the COOLPIX AW110 is a fantastic travel camera!”

Sunday Age

“There’s no denying Nikon’s latest can mix it – it’s waterproof to 18 metres and can survive being dropped two metres. Other nifty touches include GPS for mapping your shots and a button that allows you to scroll through menus by tilting the camera – perfect if you’re wearing ski gloves. This would count for naught if image quality wasn’t up to scratch, but the AW110 has got that covered, too.”
