Very happy so far...
Purchased this camera to replace the my older point ant shoot I went snorkeling with in the pocket of my trunks that was not designed to get wet... I have used it once snorkeling as well as indoors and outdoors on cruise ship excursions and like the camera very well (over 4 days). The photos and video look very good and it is easy to use in the water and out. I do not have a laptop to review the photos on a large HD screen but I will be surprised if there are any issues for me as a casual user. I like the GPS option and found the compass function to be a nice touch. The compass is visible in the display when shooting and reviewing making situational awareness much better when traveling in unfamiliar areas.
The one feature the was a bit of a pain (and it may be user error...) is the GPS log function. It seems that every time it logs a position, it takes over the screen and I had to turn the camera off and back on to take a photo. I just now have Internet access am downloading the full manual and will be able to look at that. A quick start manual is all that was included in the box. It also does not have an SD card and my old one was ruined by the swim...

Real Easy To Use....Even the added features
I'm a Realtor. I bought this camera to take basic photos of my property. This is the first time that I bought a camera with all of the bells and whistles. I did not read the manual before using the camera for the first time. I was able to figure out the point and shoot, change mega pixels of the photos, lighted the photo by adding more light to the photo, was able to use the Wi/Fi. It truly was very simple to use. The only time I had to see the manual was to insert the battery (I knew where the batter was suppose to go, but I didn't know how to open up the compartment), once I looked it up the rest was easy sailing.

I really enjoy this camera. I am outdoors in all types of weather and needed a camera that wasn't too big and could handle some bumps. I lost my first AW during a training exercise and just picked up another one. I've been very satisfied.

Best tough camera for good price
I traveled to cancun with my family and my new camera take very good pictures, especially the pictures in the pool and the sea.
I bought this camera for underwater shots and I am very satisfied with the product.

Studly high quality camera for the $
I just returned from a diving vacation in Salt Cay, Grand Turk and Provo, Turks and Caicos. We brought the AW110 along with a Go Pro Hero 3 bl ed to record our dives and trips. My girlfriend (now fiancée...) also brought her mega Nikon camera with foot long lens and a bunch of other lenses for topography shots. So, the AW110 was a true stud while diving. This little dude blew away my old Sea and Sea 35 mm camera which cost me nearly 4x more! The AW 110 was FAR more reliable and absolutely not finicky like the Go Pro 3. I admit to taking the AW far past its depth limit which it let me know about. The camera shuts down with some odd messages once you start going past 80 feet. The mega cool thing is that it came right back when you returned to 60 feet or less. The camera also take incredible pics above ground which I will submit as soon as American Airlines drops my lost luggage (all USB cables are in that bag). The only issue I had with the AW is that they should have included a red/orange filter for diving past 20 feet. This would eliminate the dominating blue effect that most divers who enjoy underwater photography are all too familiar with. As a test, I pulled my Go Pro orange filter off the video camera and put it over the AW lens. The result - incredible photos!!! The only trouble is I did this just a few times so wished I had such for tall my shots. This is the reason for this review - if you want to use this underwater (Below 15 feet) then you MUST get an orange filter for it or your pics will be too blue. Oh, on the power, the battery seems to last forever. This is one studly little camera that I must strongly recommend to you. Nikon guys - get that filter option for us and we'll really gobble these dudes up. Hope this was helpful..
