Waterproof cameras have come a long way in recent times. For many years they were simple point and shoot models that couldnât take a good picture if even the best photographer was handling it. Now, thanks to brands like Nikon, compact waterproof cameras are no different from your standard issue DSLR, if not better. The new Nikon 1 AW1 camera takes waterproof cameras to new heights. Not only is it functional when submerged, but shockproof and can handle a drop or two.
The inaugural waterproof camera with an interchangeable lens, the Nikon 1 AW1 is functional upwards to 49 feet under water with no need for waterproof housing. Moreover, the mirrorless device works with any 1 series lens while remaining waterproof with aÂ AWÂ 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 or AW 10mm f/2.8 lenses. Again, shockproof withstanding drops of up to six feet, the camera pack comes equipped with aÂ AWÂ 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 lens for $800 USD with an option to add a second lens for $1000 USD.
