Brilliant results anywhere, anytime

A bright f/2.8 lens with 24 mm1 wide-angle and Back-lit CMOS image sensor on the COOLPIX AW130 deliver stunning quality images, whether you’re in brilliant sunshine, in the dark or underwater.

Zoom in closer

Bring your subjects closer with the NIKKOR optical 5x optical zoom lens (24 – 120mm), or capture intricate details from afar with 10x2 Dynamic Fine Zoom. Keep it all steady with a combination of lens-shift and electronic VR (Vibration Reduction).

Built-in World Map, GPS and Electronic Compass

With built-in GPS and Electronic Compass, you can find your way to unfamiliar destinations fast, and record exactly where you’re shooting. Locate the nearest scenic landmarks and photo opportunities with around 1.86 million Points of Interest (POI)3.

Creative video recording

High-definition Full HD 1080/60i videos are easy on the move, thanks to 5-Axis Hybrid VR (Vibration Reduction). Explore your creativity with built-in Timelapse Movie – just choose your scene from Cityscape, Landscape, Sunset, Night sky, Star trails and the COOLPIX AW130 sets the optimum intervals to create a dynamic timelapse effect. You can also create a 30 second Short movie with images set to music.

Swift and sure Auto focus

The advanced Autofocus system with a speed of approximately 0.14 sec. at wide angle4 quickly and accurately adjusts so you’ll never miss your subject. Pre-focus locks it in, so even if the scene changes dramatically, you can still take a crystal clear image as soon as you press the shutter.

Shoot amazingly expressive portraits

Have fun adding extra beauty to your portraits with a choice of modes and retouch effects. Skin softening, Foundation make-up, Soft and Vividness adjust facial tones in real time, while Blink proof and Smile timer capture the perfect expression. Twelve Glamour retouch effects add subtle charm to images after you’ve shot.

Easily share memories with Wi-Fi® and NFC

Sharing your movies and images is easy with built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC support. Just tap to share with your smart device5. You can even control your camera remotely while checking shots on your smart device screen6.
