The Nikon 1 AW1 is the world’s first and only waterproof interchangeable lens camera. Not only can it be taken down to a depth of 15 meters, it is also shockproof to drops of 2 meters, unlike any other system camera. Its rugged protection does not end there, being freezeproof to -10C.
This mirrorless has a moderately large 14 megapixel sensor with 2.7X crop-factor which is bound to perform better than all other waterproof cameras which use tiny sensors. Its completely electronic-shutter offers extreme speed with up to 60 FPS and 1/16000s shutter-speeds.
