    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # 26293 )


    The tough new take on go-anywhere photography.

    Built to capture the moment most anywhere you go

    Built to withstand depths of up to 10 m, to resist shock when dropped from heights of up to 1.5 m, and to withstand temperatures down to -10°C, the COOLPIX AW100 is the slim compact camera made to go more of the places you like to explore. It also features Action control, which enables one-hand gloved control over assigned functions, whether wearing ski gloves or skin-diving gloves. Simply select Underwater mode for automated assistance in capturing beautiful underwater pictures.

    GPS geotagging and World Map display

    A high-performance GPS chip records location data for each shot, and the system's updatable A-GPS (Assisted GPS) file helps minimize the time required to provide position information. The system can also be set to log your movements, even when not taking pictures. Pictures and routes can then be viewed using the new Built-in world map display. These functions combine to open up a whole new dimension in photographic pleasure, from tracking your progress on a golf course, to marking the location of that great catch or accomplishment. There is also a digital compass function that records the camera's orientation when shooting.

    Note: The URL for downloading A-GPS file updates will be posted once the product is released.
