Nikon 1 AW1   Worlds First Waterproof & Shockproof Interchangeable Lens Camera

Billed as the world’s first waterproof interchangeable lens digital camera, the rugged Nikon AW1 is also shockproof, capable of withstanding a drop from a height of 2m. The shooter’s waterproof properties are made possible by an O-ring, combined with a regular bayonet lens fitting to create a tight seal that enables a working depth of 49 feet. There’s also a series of features made for the outdoor photographer, including built-in GPS for automatic geotagging of photos and videos, as well as an altimeter, depth gauge, electronic compass, and horizon indicator. Internally, the AW1 is equipped with a 14.2-megapixel CX-format sensor and 6400 top ISO, plus with 1080p video capture. In addition to the AW1, Nikon is also releasing two new lenses that are similarly shockproof and waterproof: an 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens (which covers 30-74mm in the standard 35mm format), along with a wide-angle 10mm f/2.8 lens (which is equivalent to 27mm in the 35mm format). The Nikon 1 AW1 is slated to launch worldwide in October.
