Nikon announces rugged COOLPIX AW120 and tough COOLPIX S32 cameras (07.02.2014)


Nikon Europe today announces two tough compact cameras in its COOLPIX line up, both built to complement active lifestyles. The 16-megapixel COOLPIX AW120 with fast 5x optical zoom lens, waterproof to 18m, shockproof to 2m and freeze-proof to -10°C, is equipped to tackle even the most extreme expeditions. Meanwhile the easy to handle, fun to use, 13-megapixel COOLPIX S32 is designed for all the family, however adventurous life gets.

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.

Nicolas Gillet, Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon Europe, comments: “The rugged COOLPIX AW120 quite literally takes photography to new heights as features like World Map Display, make world maps easily accessible, with enlarged views activated by shaking the camera. You can even trace your route and log up to 30 shooting locations. The bright 5x optical zoom lens can extend to 10x with Dynamic Fine Zoom* with no loss of resolution giving you exceptional detail, while 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 COOLPIX AW120 will be available at a RRP of 385 EUR.
