. When the Nikon 1 AW 1 camera came out I was interested since I thought it would be a digital version of my Nikonos 5. However, right after introduction and throughout its production life I read complaints from users whose cameras flooded despite the owners taking all the appropriate precautions. When the cameras were returned under warranty, the claims were rejected as pilot error.

Sadly, the AW-1 is a completely different animal. I've had two of these fail. The first time Nikon repaired for free. Second time the camera was out of warrantee (but not used very much) so I did not even try, just junked the camera.

In contrast, the TG series has sold many, many cameras, but leakage complaints are quite rare.
