The Nikon COOLPIX AW120 – Your robust travel companion

The COOLPIX AW120 makes a significant splash in Nikon’s pool of rugged tech, designed for those seeking to capture adventures at dizzying heights or daring depths. The 16-megapixel COOLPIX AW120 is rugged enough to be a reliable travel companion and is packed with features to enhance any active lifestyle. Built for adventures where kit space is limited, it’s an essential tool for any extreme explorer.

Waterproof to 18m, shockproof to 2m and freeze-proof to -10°C, it can also pinpoint explorations with built-in GPS, GLONASS, world maps and a compass – perfect for tracking travel routes. Built-in Wi-Fi lets you share all the action as it happens via your smart device, and you can shoot Full HD movies too. The ultra-wide 24mm f/2.8 lens with 5x optical zoom gives optimal brightness even in the darkest of scenes on land or underwater.

No matter where you are, the camera’s back-illuminated 16 MP CMOS sensor ensures you can achieve great performance and clear images with low noise, even when shooting in low light conditions like a cave or rainforest, while the large 7.5-cm/3.0-in 921k-dot OLED screen display has superior brightness and visibility for clear playback, even underwater or in direct sunlight. For when adventures require video, the AW120 shoots motion at 1080/60i with optical zoom and autofocus. Explorers can even film in slow and fast motion at speeds from 15 to 240 fps, to live and re-live every second of a big adventure.

James Loader, Senior Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon UK, comments: “The COOLPIX AW120 quite literally takes photography to new heights thanks to the combination of a robust design and high performance features that make it ideal for use in extreme terrains. It’s great for tracking your photographic journey with the easily accessible world maps and logs up to 30 shooting locations.” 

He adds: “The bright 5x optical zoom lens can extend to 10x with Dynamic Fine Zoom* at full resolution,, and GPS location, compass info, atmospheric pressure, depth and altitude readings can all be displayed on the monitor or included in your images. Quick Display gives fast confirmation of essential data so you’ll be prepared for any environment.” 

The Nikon COOLPIX AW120 is available in black, blue, camouflage and orange.
