I am considering buying the AW1, I wan to use it for underwater photography exclusively. I take pictures of babies underwater. I want to know if there is an accesory for wide angle? I don't like to get too far from the baby to capture the whole baby. I also work in an indoor pool, will it work well on low light conditions?
Which of the 2 lenses will work better for this underwater photo sessions?
thanks!

Answer: 
I would get the 10mm f/2.8 lens, it has a 77 degree angle of view (27mm equivalent) The pop up flash also works underwater. Also, purchase the NC filter for the lens to prevent condensation.

Answer: 
Based on the existing published specs I would make the educated guess that only an external slave flash would work.

I personally would have liked this camera considerably better IF it would have had a hotshoe and a higher flash shutter speed

The current models are very limited in this respect with single point metering and AF-S only (AF-C is supported with a firmware update, but the performance is not as expected)

Answer: 
Autofocus is available only with AF-S lenses; other lenses sup- port manual focus only. Set the camera focus mode to AF-S or (from firmware version L 1.10) AF-C. The only AF-area mode avail- able is Single-point and the camera focuses on the subject in the center focus area only. Face priority is not supported.
