Nikon Coolpix AW120 Review

May 29, 2014 | Jack Baker | Rating star Rating star Rating star Half rating star


The Coolpix AW120 is the third generation of Nikon’s ruggedized Coolpix All Weather compact cameras. It replaces the AW110 and boasts a 16.0MP CMOS sensor and 5x Zoom lens with a focal length range equivalent to 24-120mm (in 35mm camera terms). But what really sets the AW120 apart from its Coolpix counterparts is that it’ll keep on snapping underwater at depths down to 18-metres, or after a 2-meter drop. It’s also freezeproof to -10° and packs in a host of action-orientated extras like GPS, an interactive world map, compass, altimeter and depth gauge. Add to this full HD video capture and an 8fps maximum shooting rate and the AW120 should keep pace with whatever you throw at it. All this tech doesn’t come cheap though, as the AW120 commands a fairly hefty price tag of £329.99 / €399 / $349.95.

Ease of Use

Despite sporting plenty of tech, the AW120 is no harder to use than pretty much any Coolpix compact. There’s no mode dial to worry about and manual control is kept to a minimum too. Just stick the camera in Smart Auto mode and it’ll detect the scene you’re aiming at and automatically apply optimal shooting settings. Alternatively there’s a standard Auto mode if you fancy some more input to alter things like white balance or ISO sensitivity, or you can manually select one of the 19 scene modes, including an underwater setting that’ll counteract colour shifts when shooting at lower depths. The AW120 is also treated to Nikon’s range of creative colour effects to mimic sepia and toy camera looks, as well as a nifty Smart Portrait mode which will make your friends and family look their best with its automatic smile and blink detection, red-eye removal and skin softening.

Externally buttons have been kept to a minimum so you won’t need to fumble about to find the right control when you’re in the thick of the action. Only the shutter release and power button make an appearance on the top panel, with the zoom control located on the back where it takes the form of a rocker switch. Next to this is the video record button, and below that are the standard controls for setting the camera’s shooting mode, as well as playback, menu and delete buttons. These flank a control dial that’ll set the flash mode, self timer, macro mode and exposure compensation. All the buttons have a slightly spongy feel though, most likely due to waterproof seals beneath them. Move round to the right and a single waterproofed door covers the battery, card and data sockets. To ensure it doesn’t get accidentally opened to the elements, it’s double-secured by a locking dial with a push-button release.

At the opposite end of the AW120 are two buttons, with the lower activating what Nikon calls ‘Action Control’. This useful trick enables you to change basic settings by shaking and tilting the camera, so there’s no need to fumble around with buttons when you’re underwater or wearing gloves. Above this is a button that’ll activate the camera’s world map feature to display your current shooting location, along with local points of interest and up to 30 of your own personalised locations. The system works using the camera’s GPS/GLONASS system, which is primarily included so you can record your location data into each photo. This works well, though the downside is a noticeable reduction in battery life, especially as the system remains active for up to six hours even when the camera is turned off. Wi-Fi image sharing and wireless camera control are present too, utilising a companion app available for iOS and Android mobile devices.

These features are nothing new though, as they’re all included in the outgoing AW110. The new camera is also a dead-ringer for its predecessor and is available in the same orange, black, blue and camouflage colour options. Where the two cameras do differ – externally at least – is their monitor. They’re both 3-inch OLED units, but the AW120 ups the resolution from 614k-dots to 921k. Crank the brightness to the max and it’s also fairly easy to see under bright light, whilst the viewing angles are also very good.

Front Side

The AW120 has received some subtle optical improvements. It now sports a wider f/2.8 maximum aperture at wide angle, helping reduce the need for higher sensor sensitivities or slower shutter speeds. Both cameras give you a 5x zoom reach, which is about all you can expect from an internally-zoomed lens. But whereas the old design had to make do with a 28mm-equivalent wide angle setting, the AW120 expands this to a more useful 24mm. Of course the telephoto reach suffers as a result, but when you’re in the thick of the action, wider is usually better. Vibration Reduction is another essential feature for sharp shots when you’re on the move, though the lens’ relatively modest telephoto reach doesn’t necessitate it as much as longer-zoom cameras.

You’ll also be able to capture the action faster thanks to the camera’s 8-frame per second, 6-shot continuous shooting rate, up from 6.9fps for 5 shots in the AW110. Full HD movie capture remains the same for the AW120, as does its 16.0-megapixel stills resolution, though the new camera does boast a higher maximum sensor sensitivity of ISO 6400. Battery life gets a boost too, up from 250 shots to an impressive 350 from its rechargeable Li-ion power pack. Nikon has also increased the measly 21MB of internal storage in the AW110 to a very handy 329MB in the new model, so if you forget your SD card, all is not lost.

The new camera and its predecessor also share the same toughness credentials, but given that these figures are still up there with the best ruggedized compacts, that’s no bad thing. We weren’t able to fully test that 18-metre depth rating, but the AW120 survived several more modest dunks in the drink without issue. Likewise our attempts to put the camera through some rough and tumble barely caused a scratch. It’s a pity this toughness isn’t accompanied by better ergonomics though, as there’s no front finger grip and not much for your thumb to grip on to either, making one-handed shooting feel less secure than you’d like.

The AW120 is also well up to capturing fast action. It powers up in around a second and stays on the pace thanks to a nippy autofocus system which finds its mark quickly in all but the darkest lighting. You’ll also be able to focus right down to 1cm in macro mode, though annoyingly this can only be activated by manually changing out of the default Smart Auto mode and into regular Auto. Another occasional annoyance is the auto white balance, which is sometimes prone to undersaturating colours in mixed or overcast light. The camera’s exposure metering is more reliable, generally striking a good balance between retaining highlight and shadow detail.

Image Quality

All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 16 megapixel Fine JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 5Mb.

In good light and at low sensor sensitivities, the AW120 produces attractive images with vibrant colour and a fair amount of detail. Viewing at 100% does show up the limitations of the small 1/2.3-in sensor though, as fine detail is inevitably smeared in the battle to minimise image noise. This is usually most apparent in landscape shots, which can take on a watercolour look. Viewing at smaller sizes mostly hides this, but if you compensate for the relatively short telephoto zoom by cropping in on an area, you’ll soon see these shortcomings.

Step inside or into less optimal lighting and the camera struggles again. Although the exposure metering does a good job, underwhelming dynamic range means the camera prioritises highlight areas at the expense of shadows, meaning the overall exposure can look somewhat dark with muddy, undersaturated colours. The auto white balance is also occasionally fooled in difficult light and leaves some shots looking even more washed out.

The camera does minimise high ISO image noise pretty well though. Colour speckling is kept pretty much at bay up to ISO 3200, and grain doesn’t become too distracting until this sensitivity. Detail suffers much sooner, however, becoming noticeably more smeared from ISO 400 upwards. By ISO 1600, shots of all but the closest subjects show considerable smearing when viewed full size.

Fortunately there’s little to complain about optically. The 5x zoom lens doesn’t show any noticeable distortion at any point in its focal length range and maintains good corner sharpness. Chromatic aberration (purple fringing) can be spotted in some high-contrast shots, but it’s rarely distracting. Nikon’s Vibration Reduction system again does a great job of holding things steady so you can keep your shots sharp.


The Nikon Coolpix AW120 has seven sensitivity settings at full resolution. Smart Auto mode uses a range between ISO 125 and ISO 1600, or you can switch to regular Auto mode to reveal ISO 3200 and ISO 6400 settings.

Focal Range

The AW120’s internally-focussed 5x zoom lens achieves a maximum wide-angle focal length equivalent to 24mm, and is capable of a telephoto reach of 120mm (in 35mm-camera terms).

Here are two 100% crops - the right-hand image has had some sharpening applied in Photoshop. The out-of-the camera images from the Nikon Coolpix AW120 are slightly soft at the default sharpening setting and benefit from some further sharpening in a program like Adobe Photoshop. You can alternatively change the in-camera sharpening level to suit your tastes.

File Quality

One quality setting accompanies each image size, with only the maximum 16.0MP setting offering a Fine option, which roughly doubles the file size of each saved image from approximately 3 to 6MB.

Fine (5.79Mb) (100% Crop)

Normal (3.25Mb) (100% Crop)

Chromatic Aberrations

Given the range of the zoom lens, the Nikon Coolpix AW120 shows some purple fringing, with limited effects in areas of high contrast as shown in the examples below.

The AW120’s lens will focus as close as 1cm, however you’ll usually find the camera will cast a shadow over your subject at such a close range.


Macro (100% Crop)

The camera’s flash is capable of up to a 5.2m range and has four settings: Auto, Auto with red-eye reduction, Fill flash (always on) & Slow sync (best for night portrait shots). Shooting a white surface from a distance of 1.5m, the flash provides even coverage with the lens zoomed in, though some vignetting is visible in the wide-angle shot.

Whether the flash is set to Fill flash or Auto with red-eye reduction, the camera successfully avoids any trace of red-eye.

And here are a couple of portrait shots. As you can see, neither the Fill Flash or the Auto with Red-eye reduction options caused any amount of red-eye.

Vibration Reduction

Lens shift Vibration Reduction ensures you get sharp shots even if you’re caught up in the action. The system works well, though in general use when you’re able to stand still, it’s not essential given the AW120’s fairly limited focal length range.

Night Landscape mode offers two settings: Tripod and Handheld. The former captures a scene with a longer exposure for less image noise, or you can shoot handheld, whereby the camera will snap multiple exposures and combine them into a single image. This shot uses the Tripod setting.

This setting automatically captures two exposures of a high-contrast scene to record shadow and highlight detail separately, then merges them into a single HDR image.

Easy Panorama

Pan the AW120 left or right and it’ll automatically stitch together a 180 or 360-degree panorama. The results are considerably downsized though and detail suffers as a result. Not being able to stop panning at will is also annoying if you don’t want to cover a view as wide as 180 degrees.

So should you buy a Nikon Coolpix AW120? As far as its features go, it’s up there with the best cameras in the toughened compact class. Its GPS geotagging and world map navigation are useful for the aspiring adventurer, as is the compass, altimeter and depth gauge. The AW120’s Wi-Fi capability is a little more limited, but nonetheless a welcome inclusion.

The camera should also shrug off plenty of rough and tumble, but no matter how tough and feature-packed the AW120 is, it still needs to pack decent image quality, and in this respect it’s no better than the old AW110. Images show more detail smoothing than equivalent cameras with similarly sized sensors, whilst in less optimal lighting you’re often left with slightly muddy and undersaturated shots.

However the issue that’s hardest to overlook is how similar the Nikon Coolpix AW120 is to the outgoing AW110. Their toughness credentials and sensor spec are pretty much identical, as is the design and feature set of both cameras. The AW120’s higher screen resolution is nice, but by no means essential, and the same goes for the extra on-board storage. The boosted battery life, extra wide-angle capability and larger maximum aperture are more useful, but ultimately the average image quality is what leaves the more lasting impression. Oh, and the price.

The AW120 has been given around a 20% price hike over the AW110’s RRP, which to be fair still isn’t over the odds in this sector, but it still stings given the relatively minor improvements you’re getting for that extra outlay. However, what really seals the new camera’s fate is that the AW110 can – at the time of writing – be snapped up for up 80% less than its RRP, yet it performs almost identically to the new model.

Should the Nikon Coolpix AW120 drop significantly in price over the coming months, it’ll make a reasonably buy if you’re not out for ultimate image quality. But for the time being, save a packet and get hold of an AW110 whilst you still can.
