    Nikon 1 AW1 Waterproof Mirrorless - Preview

    I've had the AW1 for a couple of weeks now. I've got a bunch of product shots of it and some photos I shot with it so I thought I should post a hands-on preview article:

    I'm also working on some plans to send it out with a pro ski photographer and take it diving in the next week. No mercy for the AW1

    Thanks for the update.

    I still think of my almost getting one every time you post about it but I'm very happy adding 70D, STM lens and shotgun mico to my Canon system.

    Rev B or the evolution of this or its competition should be what I'd love.

    I redeemed airline miles for an Olympus TG-2 in the meanwhile - a different animal than AW1 or my SLR but should be great for letting the kids take it and ease of carry.

    Your dive report is something I look forward to - especially how it fares with snorkeling and no image stabilization.

    Thanks again.

    I think we're booked for a dive on Sunday. I'm not a diver but I'm going with a friend who is. I'll be taking the Olympus TG-1 so I can get pictures of the AW1 underwater. I think the diver will bring a GoPro, too. Should be interesting. We're going to a place called "The Crater." It's a non-active geyser hot springs in Midway, Utah. The bored a tunnel through the side and put a little dock in it because the walls are sheer from the opening at the top to the bottom of the springs, which I think is about 60 feet down. I swam there once before, about 8 years ago. It's a funky place and should be great for photos and video

    Nikon AW1 Duve Test Completed!

    We took the camera out to "The Crater" on Sunday and took the AW1 down to 20 feet below the surface and it survived. I wrote a short article with a bunch of photos of the camera in action along with a video of underwater footage shot with the AW1:

    I've always been impressed with the performance of the Nikon 1 cameras. I was never really comfortable with the image quality compromise, though. With the added underwater capabilities in the AW1, though, I think they've really got a winner on their hands.

    Ah yes, the crater. It is 64 feet deep. I go there to get sharpened up on dive skills before major trips. I''m amazed they have a camera the quality of a Nikon that can go down 20 feet without a housing. Housings can cost thousands - of course they can go down far deeper but still, very impressive!

    I got mine from a discount store. It seems like it's getting near end-of-life and there are some bargains around. I shall write a review of it in the Nikon forum
