Nikon – COOLPIX AW120
I had a chance this weekend to test the video capabilities of the Nikon AW120.
I had a chance this weekend to test the video capabilities of the Nikon AW120. My expectations, regarding video quality, for a small compact all weather camera were not set very high. However, I was very pleased with the results for such a versatile (weather-proof) camera. There is certainly a tradeoff, when you compare the Nikon COOLPIX AW120 to say the Canon G30, but having the ability to shoot HD video with excellent Macro Mode is priceless.
I highly recommend the Nikon COOLPIX AW120.
