peter42y: I guess this new camera is an acknowledgement that the initial V1 , was not a success. ( In fact their price did drop a lot).I do not think this camera will be a sucess either.How many people do underwater photography ? Not many. The demand will be therefore rather small I believe .Let us see.BTW : I am a V1 owner but I bough it at a heavily discounted price.
How many people do underwater photography ??there will be a lot.
this is the same question as how many people make video while photographing? in the beginning almost none, but now almost everybody.
like any other gaskets in the world, it wears out and leaks.
before that you better use this camera on very extensive frequency
I just returned my Nikon AW110. On easy-mode auto with flash and face detecting it gave me inconsistently extreme overexposure. Sometimes it's under exposure as well but often it's extremely overexposure inconsistently. It happened indoors and semi-outdoors. Tried to play with settings and still inconsistently overexposure.Other thing is, the lens is very sensitive to glare. There will be a massive mist from glare when there is bright light in front of sensor plane.
I have couple of Nikon pro DSLR and Lenses and I like Nikon, so I thought Nikon would give a good pocket camera in this type, but I was wrong.I decided this one is not for me.
And again, Amazon is the best in the return department that I would always want to buy from Amazon. (Sorry this last bit is irrelevant. Just showing my gratitude).
Nikon AW110 Overexposure.
I set the AW110 on easy automatic with flash and face detection mode and it gave me inconsistently overexposure. Sometimes it's under exposure as well but often it's extremely overexposure. It happened indoors and semi-outdoors.I have couple of Nikon pro DSLR and Lenses and I like it, so I thought Nikon would give better pocket camera too, but I was wrong.
Is there any solution ?
Oh, other thing I just notice is, it has vary strong glare mist on a bright light.
