COOLPIX AW100 3.6 5 97 97
All weather camera, goes everywhere, easy to use My AW-100 has been in the back pocket of my cycling jersey for hundreds of bicycle rides over thousands of miles. It's the camera that is there when I want it. Easy to use, takes a good picture or 1080p movie on a moments notice. November 4, 2013
Rugged enough for my work. Haven't utilized camera yet, but it appears to have the features I need. October 3, 2013
Excellent for the Outdoors person I love this camera! It is great for hiking, kayaking and camping. Takes great outdoor shots and HD is excellent. This camera in NOT recommend for indoor shots, it has a very bright flash. Which is better near the campfire. But for the avid outdoor trekker, it a great companion to capture those events with great pics and HD video. August 20, 2013
Easy to take wonderful pictures We just returned from a 6 week National Park tour of Southwest America. I took over 600 pictures and was very happy with the quality and ease of use. It works well in all lights and distances. It is easy to carry while hiking and fits well in a small pocket on the motorcycle. My friends were amazed with the beautiful pictures. June 25, 2013
great camera! but very rarely it does fog up. 5 stars!(: this is the most epic camera i have ever owned! it is full hd and is super cool because if you go to the options for what type of camera taking option you want, (most users don't know this!) you can put in this slo-mo thing! it is so cool and i can't wait to use it this summer!

Can the Action Control on the AW100 be turned off?

I bought the AW100 to replace my Olympus waterproof, but returned it when I found that the Action Control was always active in Playback mode. So, if you hand the camera to someone else to look at a picture, and move it a little too much, the picture changes to a different one. Very annoying and unnecessary.

Can the Action Control be turned off entirely, or at least for the Playback mode?

Answer: 
I havent been able to find a way to turn off the action control feature either, but, I have set it to the lowest possible setting and it seems to subdue it enough to stop it from working unless you overly magnify the 'shake' used to make it work. . I set mine to 1 and it is almost impossible for it to flip through the photos unless I use a very exagerated motion. Don't be too hard on the little guy, it is still a very sweet camera. Maybe they can fix this in a firmware update and add an 'off' button for the feature.

Answer: 
I stopped at Best Buy today, and tested the camera to see if the Action Control could be turned off. I could not turn it off, despite your saying it can be done. No matter what I tried, I still got an unintentional and annoying slide show when moving the camera in Playback mode.

I'm interested in buying the camera again. Perhaps you can try turning off the Action Control on an actual camera and let me know? Or, give me (and others who have the same issue) very specific instructions to over-ride the "feature".

Answer: 
JoeR, please clarify. Are you saying that you can use the button on the left side of the camera to completely turn off Action Control, and when the camera is moved during Playback mode there will no longer be an unintentional slide show?

Answer: 
Per the users manual page 36: http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/kie88335f7869dfuejdl=-cww2/AW100EN.pdf

In Continuous H mode: While the shutter-release button is pressed all the way, images are
captured continuously at a rate of about 7.1 frames per second
(when the image mode is Q 4608×3456). Shooting ends when
the shutter-release button is released, or three pictures have been
taken continuously.

Did you have trouble finding this information online or just didn't bother to do a little search?

Hope this helps!

I posted the question and quicktime is not the default. The videos just wont play in any other format I have tried a few different ones and I finally downloaded quicktime and they played. My other camera works in windows media player and I can also view them on my Wii but with this camera they don't work on the Wii. Just wondering if its a software thing on the camera and if I can switch it.

The GPS information becomes part of the information records in every picture (EXIF data) along with aperture, etc. The benefit is that some software will allow you to see a map of the world showing where you took every shot.

Answer: 
If you connect the camera to your computer and have access to a PTP (Picture Taking Protocol) library, you can write a program to simulate a timelapse feature (you will have to stitch the photos together afterwards). I've succeeded with 12MP timelapse photos (16MP seems to crash the camera).

Answer: 
The places on the camera where any strap will attach have very small holes so only a very thin string can fit through. I've read many reviews of various brands of floating straps and many people have lost their camera because that string that attaches the floating part to the camera broke.

I'm guessing that these people who lost their camera had the strap around their arm or wrist and were not holding on to the camera itself while swimming. I've done the same thing when I used to buy those disposable Kodak underwater cameras that use a heavy duty rubber band for a strap.

Since I plan to actually hold the camera in my hand while snorkeling or taking pictures in the surf, I wanted the extra protection of a wrist strap. The wrist strap that got the best user reviews - concerning the strength of the thin string part that attaches to the camera itself - was the Nikon AN-CP19 Replacement Strap. It's available at Amazon for $5.95 as of this writing.

Answer: 
The camera will sink but you can purchase a floating strap so if you let go of it while in the water it will float by the strap. I recommend buying a bright colour so if the camera happens to get away from you, you'll be able to spot it from afar.
