I bought this camera year when I drove to Alaska and was working there for the summer. When i first turned it on, I was amazed. My last point and shoot camera was big and bulky and took horrible pics, but this, was almost as good as the big cameras. I was so excited when I found out it was water proof and it took 3D pics. It also has amazing zoom. The pics came out amazing. Then, i took a trip to orlando . I went to discovery cove and went snorkeling with the dolphins with my baby (My camera) I got amazing pictures of stingrays, fish and sharks. In fact, they looked better then pictures taken by the huge under water cameras!
I must have dropped the camera like a million times but its still in perfect shape. This is the best camera

This camera is wonderful! Don't listen to the 1 starer's. Works well for work, travel, and snorkeling.

My AW100 died and Nikon CS took great care of a customer
The camera takes just as great photos as my AW100. My AW100 died but Nikon Customer Service worked with me and took care of me. Great follow through for customer service and what soured my opinion actually came through.
The camera is great although I haven't taken use of the WiFi yet. I have used it a few time of my nieces and nephews in the backyard pool and everyone was loving the results.

Owned for 3+ years and never a fault
Ive had mine since Christmas of 2011. This guy has been to the beach and pool countless times with never an issue. Always cleaned it with fresh water, and I have never doubted the seals. I am hoping the new ones are mostly user error than hardware error because unless there is a bad internal seal somewhere, I really do not see how it can fail.

best underwater camera out there
I bought one of these last year at a target store while on vacation in Orlando for discovery cove, for $349.00. It took amazing shots and video at depths greater than 15ft. I was using it underwater for hours with no problems, and no signs of leakage. When I got out of the water, I noticed I must have scratched the orange paint on a rock. The scratch bothered me so much that I exchanged it the next day for a new one. I keep my electronics meticulous. Well took the new one in the pool a week later back home, and after about an hour in the water the screen went black. So I returned that one also, I was so mad at myself for returning the first one that had the little scratch on it, but worked fine. Anyways, Walmart has these on clearance for $229 right now (May 2014), I even asked the manager if she could discount it even more, so she took off another $21. Long story short, so far so good. No problems whatsoever, takes beautiful shots, and no signs of leakage. I guess it's just the luck of the draw with these.
