The Nikon 1 lineup has a new, rugged addition to its ranks ready to take on the great outdoors. The AW1 is a digital interchangeable lens camera that's shockproof, freezeproof and waterproof, with similar specs to the Nikon 1 J3. Nikon claims the AW1 is the "world's first" and will offer two equally rugged lenses to match, including an 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom and a 10mm f/2.8 wide angle.
The extreme capabilities of the Nikon 1 AW1 include shock protection for drops from up to 6.6 feet and waterproofing down to 49 feet underwater. Operating temps go as low as 14 degrees fahrenheit. Besides all this, the AW1 sports several adventure-specific features such as built-in GPS, compass, depth gauge, altimeter, and horizon indicator. The AW1 even has a waterproof pop-up flash.
