AW100 Lost on a Rafting Trip I was rafting on the Nantahala River in North Carolina, and my daughter had my AW100 Nikon around her neck with a Lanyard. Unfortunately she was discharged from the raft during a sequence of Class 3 rapids. Another raft picked her up, but in the process pulled the camera from her neck and it was lost in the 40 Deg F rapids. It was gone, and I was heartbroken but obviously over joyed about my daughter's safety. The camera had served me well on many AT hiking trips, beach trips, and cold weather camping. After several weeks of moping, I decided to visit the Nantahala again during the off time of the dam release. After walking up river a mile or so, I found the glistening Orange Nikon in about 2 1/2 feet of water probably about 200 yds from where my daughter's discharge took place. It was battered and scratched up pretty badly from bouncing off of the rocks and I expected it was toast. When I got home, I was very surprised that it powered up and I was able to retrieve the pics. Hard core camera for the money. I'm saving now for the AW120, with the new silicon sleeve, I expect it will be even better! September 3, 2014
portable very nice compact product,easy to use , simple , and good image qlty September 1, 2014
I don't see all the problems! I've looked at several other reviews on this camera that were saying it was junk, not waterproof, breaks, etc. they are totally false! I bought this camera for a week long canoeing/backpacking trip in Canada. I took over 450 photos and videos with it and all of them look gorgeous! I used it underwater too and had absolutely no problem with it. Great photos. I will say that to make it through the week I used two batteries. But it's really not that bad at all! One battery is like 10-12 bucks people. If you are buying a 300$ camera you can afford another $10 to DOUBLE your shooting time. I've had completely no issues whatsoever with this little camera. Trust me, buy it! You won't be dissappointed! August 4, 2014
Awesome camera for the price Bought my AW120 a few weeks back and am totally satisfied with the purchase. Being an avid diver, I wanted a waterproof camera that could be used in and around the water without fear of getting ruined. I haven't had it in the water yet but everything else has been great. The pictures are sharp, both in daylight and low light situations. I also love Nikon's Wireless Mobility Utility app that allows me to look at and transfer pictures to my phone. This allows me to take that perfect shot and upload it almost immediately to social media and other online sites. It is also fun to take photos remotely using my phone now and then. At this point the only negative that I have encountered is with the lens placement. A couple of early shots contained a nice close up of a finger in the corner of my pics. I have now used it enough that I automatically grip it with my fingers out of the way. I am looking forward to taking my first dive with it and seeing how those shots turn out but so far so good! May 22, 2014
More than I had hoped for I have had this camera for nine months now, and it has been to Alaska during a fishing trip, to Barcelona, Spain, Rome, Florence, Venice and Paris. I did not baby the camera and it took some abuse from being in my pocket or getting wet in rain and/or sea spray. It has provided great pictures that remain clear even with enlargement. Most recently I took it to the Bahamas and took numerous shots while walking in the water with my wife. I gave one to my son and he traveled to Fiji and Thailand for three weeks. His pictures, viewed on a large flat screen TV were phenomenal. Whenever I do not feel like carrying my professional level Nikons with the assorted lenses, this offers a great substitute. The only problem I had was trying to get it back from my wife after I let her borrow it. March 19, 2014

Answer: 
If you are asking about how to configure the Wifi then it is in the Menu -> (hit the left arrow button two times to get to the main left pannel -> scroll down to the Wifi symbol.

I spent a few minutes figuring out how it worked. Configure the options first with the name of the wifi network (SSID) and then the pasword. After that click the "Connect to smart device" option to set it active (pairing mode, in essence). Then connect the smart device (iPhone) to look for the newly named Ad-hoc wifi network from your camera.

Once you are connected you can open the Nikon WMU (downloaded from the store) and download pictures from the camera or use the Smart Device as a remote viewer.

Good luck.

Answer: 
The camera detects smiling faces and releases the shutter automatically when in Smart Portrait Mode. Auto Mode is used for general shooting. Settings can be adjusted to suit the shooting conditions and the type of shot you want to capture. However, it is recommended when shooting in underwater scene mode, to manually select underwater scene mode.

Answer: 
You can enable WiFi on your AW120 by pressing the menu button - from the icons along left hand side of the screen, select the WIFI icon. It will be the third one down on that left hand side. Click on the "Connect to smart device" option. Make sure you have already downloaded the Wireless Mobile Utility for the smart device that you have (either iOS or Android version). Refer to pages 89 and 90 in your AW120 manual for step by step instructions.

Please select the icon that is next to trim (this will be a pair of scissors). For picture of icon you will be looking for please see attached shot.

Answer: 
GPS data is recorded onto the images itself once the camera's GPS is activated. This information will be displayed in the metadata when the images are downloaded. The GPS data will not show up when viewing an image during playback. If options are grayed out, make sure that there is an approved memory card inside the camera. The "Disable Wi-Fi" option is available when the camera's Wi-Fi is turned on. If the Wi-Fi is turned off, this option will be grayed out. If the Wi-Fi is turned on and connected to the Wireless Mobile Utility Application the Disable Wi-Fi option will be available however can only be used when the camera is not shooting remotely with the Wireless Mobile Utility Application.

Does the AW120 have an attachment for a filter or additional lenses like the AW110 had? I previously owned an AW100, and one of the big selling points was the ability to add on my own filters or lenses using the included UR-E25 – Filter Adapter.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX AW120 has several scene modes that will adjust according to the shooting conditions. A scene mode available on the COOLPIX AW120 is Sports Scene Mode. This scene mode lets you capture fast moving sports or action subjects using a fast shutter speed and continuous shooting. While the shutter-release button is held all the way down, the camera shoots up to about 5 images continuously at a rate of about 6.9 fps (when image mode is set to 4608×3456) while in the Sports Scene Mode. The frame rate for continuous shooting may become slow depending upon the current image mode setting, the memory card used, or shooting condition.

Answer: 
The GPS feature will save the maps on the camera when images are taken using the GPS feature. The GPS information is recorded when the images are taken, and will place a geotag on the map in the camera and location data can be viewed in View NX 2.

I love my new AW120s! But after the first day using it on the beach, I noticed that the monitor screen was already getting scratched. Are there any compatible screen protectors for the monitor? (InvisiShield, etc.). Thanks.

Answer: 
Nikon does not sell a monitor protector for the COOLPIX AW120. Nikon cannot offer support or advice on third party products. You will need to get in contact with the manufacturer of the third party equipment for
compatibility information with our products.

To use GPS for hiking you need to store 'waypoints.' Otherwise, the GPS is not much use to a hiker in the woods.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX AW120 can save up to 30 locations and can also save a log of movement information. Please note that the GPS in the AW120 is not intended for use as a navigation device. The GPS information measured by the camera is intended to be used as a guideline only. When using the camera for mountain climbing, trekking, or underwater, make sure to take a map, navigation device, or measuring instrument separately.

What happens to the AW120 camera if I take it below 59 ft?

I love the camera for taking underwater pictures... it is really amazing.

What happens to the camera if it goes below the 59ft depth limit? Does it temporarily lock up, like the shutter stops working but resumes functionality when returned to less than 59ft?

OR is it more severe - the battery compartment floods and I would have to buy a new battery but the camera would be fine after it dries out?

OR more severe yet - the entire camera fills with water, the electronics fry and it should be taken immediately to a landfill?

Answer: 
To set up the built-in set up on the COOLPIX AW120, Enable the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi. Press the MENU button to display the menus, then highlight Wi-Fi Options in the setup menu and turn it ON. You will see that the camera is beginning to search for the smart device. On an iOS-powered device, you will need to go into settings and select Wi-Fi. Select the camera’s Wi-Fi Network or SSID, which will begin with the name Nikon followed by an alpha-numeric string. The camera and smart device will then connect. Launch the Wireless Mobile Utility on the smart device. Once the files are on your smartphone or tablet, that device’s Wi-Fi or cellular service is used to upload files to image sharing or SNS websites or to send them as attachments to emails. COOLPIX cameras must have a media card in the camera for Wi-Fi options to be accessible; and the camera’s battery must have at least 50% charge. Wi-Fi can be disabled by selecting Wi-Fi, Network Connection, Disable in the camera setup menu or by turning the camera off.

GPS doesn't seem to be working

The GPS function doesn't seem to be working. When I go to the map, it doesn't display where I am and when I cycle to the compass display, the GPS coordinates display as --°--'--". Furthermore, when I go into the menu and select "Set clock from satellite" it always fails. How do I get this rolling?

Do I have to load GPS data onto the SD card? I can't find anywhere on nikon.com that has this data or tells you how to do it.
