Saturday, September 21, 2013 Nikon has launched the world’s first waterproof and shockproof digital lens camera, dubbed the Nikon 1AW1. The camera also has the interchangeable lens option. Nikon is also the creator of the 35mm Calypso film camera series, which are meant for underwater photography. Of course, these were designed back in the 1960s.

Nikon, Nikon 1AW1, interchangeable lens, waterproof camera, dustproof camera, CX-format, shockproof camera, Nikon digital camera.




A waterproof camera isn’t something very new, but the Nikon 1AW1 is also a shockproof camera, which can handle drops from up to 2 metres. Plus, it has the interchangeable lens system, which has been mentioned before. That is not all, the camera can also survive in low temperatures, up to -10 degrees Celsius, which makes it freezeproof as well. We forgot to mention that it is dustproof too.

It has a 14.2 mega pixel CX-format CMOS sensor, which has a maximum of 6,400 ISO. In addition, the camera uses a hybrid AF tracking and is compatible with all lenses in Nikon’s CSC range.

It looks like a pretty good camera especially for those of us who are prone to butter fingers. The camera has a rugged look and a very tough body and is priced at Rs 62,190.
