Update! Delivered the camera to Nikon today and received notice within an hour that they will replace the camera.. Very impressed with the quality of their support!
I purchased an AW110 on July the 19th – used it 3 times, I was impressed with the ergonomics of the camera – I’m using it with neoprene gloves – balancing in a sea kayak. However on the 3rd use I noticed moisture on the lower part of the screen which rapidly spread to fog the whole screen – then killed the display. Clearly water had somehow gotten into the camera despite the battery cover being securely locked. I returned it to the store – assuming they would replace it as it was clearly faulty. But no! As the camera was suffering from ‘water damage’ they would have to return it to Nikon and that I was told would take 6 - 8 weeks. If it was then deemed to be a fault they would replace it. I’ve called the local Nikon office who has offered a quicker two week process if I can get the camera to them – but beware even though they say these cameras are waterproof – some stores are not willing to stand behind that statement! I have this horrible feeling that I just bought a problem camera.
