Nikon 1 AW1 - First Impressions

I have to say that I was a skeptic - even a critic of the Nikon 1 series.

But the AW1 filled just the niche that I was hoping for:

  1. Snowboarding
  2. Beach/Snorkelling
  3. Large depth of field product shots

More on my blog, but my first impressions are that I think this is going to work out well. It’s rugged, fast, decent image quality, the sensor is small enough for deep depth of field but larger than any other underwater camera on the market and it shoots Raw - unique!

Very high build quality with metal construction and dual-locking doors.

Nice depth of field.

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

It's more important how an image looks as a thumbnail than how it looks at 100%.
