- Good points:
- The underwater images this camera produces are great
- Bad points:
- You can't control the iso settings so it's very difficult to under or over expose an image should you wish to.

- Good points:
- Excellent build quality. As an existing owner of a Nikon camera I found it very straight forward to navigate the various functions
- Bad points:
With the lens being mounted off-center it gives a slightly imbalanced feel & the lens cap is a bit fiddly to get on/off. This might have been better with a simple push fit style.
Neither of these points really diminish the quality of this camera.

It features a 14.2-megapixel resolution CX-format CMOS sensor for superior images even in low light, super-fast shooting at up to 60 frames-per-second, robust functionality plus an easy-to-use Action Control button – even when you’re wearing gloves!
The Nikon 1 AW1 is a stunning combination of robust functionality with minimalist design. It’s waterproof to 15m shockproof (from heights of up to 2 m), freeze-proof (to -10°C), and dustproof.
Rubber seals at critical locations and an O-ring on the lens mount protect the camera system from water and dust. Double-lock battery and USB/HDMI compartment covers reduce the chance of accidental opening.
Waterproof to 15m, the built-in flash unit illuminates the details of subjects you can get close to, like coral. On land, illuminate subjects up to 6m away from the camera.
Capture full-resolution images of fast-moving subjects at up to 15 frames-per-second, or focus on one spot and shoot at up to an amazing 60 fps.
The Nikon 1 advanced hybrid Autofocus system focuses so fast you can shoot the action without delay. Capture precisely focused photos and movies, every time—even in low light.
