I recently picked up an AW1 with both AW lenses--10 and 11-27.5.  I'm not really planning to go scuba diving (I live deep in the desert), but will probably be taking it in some rough conditions.   However, both lenses are kind of large, and I can imagine a slimmer lens being useful to make the whole setup more "pocketable" when ruggedness isn't necessary.  Unfortunately there are basically zero photos online of an AW1 with a non-AW lens mounted, and I have no physical access to lenses get a...

Hello Ladies and Gents I've just purchased a second hand Nikon AW1from Ebay. I've checked all the seals and put it into a sink full of water. I've noticed air bubbles are escaping from the zoon ring. Can anyone tell me if this is normal? I realise that there must be some air trapped in this crevice before the internal seals. I'm reluctant to go into the water till I find out this is normal. Thankyou for your responses. Keel

Hi guys, I am trying to work on my photography skills and am having acouple issues with photos coming out funky. I was hoping you guys could take a look at acouple photos and offer advise why they came out this way. At this size that I uploaded the pictures for this post the "flaws" or areas that i have issues with seem minor, but when you up the resolution and size they are quite apparent. 1. nikon aw1 10-20mm (fill flash) This first image was taken in the evening using a flash. My biggest...

I own two V1’s and am very happy with the IQ. I am considering adding an AW1 + AW zoom for outdoor activities in the rain. I remember reading quite a few testaments of flooding when used in or near water (e.g. river rafting), but I cannot find any reports of flooding problems due to rain only. So I have a couple of questions: 1) Has anyone ever experienced (or read of) flooding due to rain? 2) Has anyone who recently acquired a new AW1 experienced flooding problems in or near water? 3) The...

Hi. I'm researching an underwater camera in the $800-$1,000 range. I'm not happy with the image quality I've seen in Sealife and Nikon 1 AW1, I assume because of the small sensors. I also assume I need to spend at least $600 to get the images I want. I'd like to shoot focal lengths equivalent to 70-110mm as well as video. Because most of the underwater cameras are wide angle and have small sensors/high ISO I assume I will be best off with an underwater housing on a conventional camera. I'm...

Hello, I read from the a thread (link below) the Nikon AW1, 10mm, and the Olympus FCON-P01 Fisheye Convertor works well. Would it also work on the 10mm for Nikon V2? I can not find any other pictures or information regarding this. I saw several pictures and reviews of the Convertor, however it does not looks its just a screw on. Would I need another adapter for it?  Thanks in advance,  Daseul http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/55101736

I have a G7X. I'm considering various underwater housings (for swimming depth only), but for the cost, I'm wondering whether the AW1 would make more sense. Any thoughts on IQ between the two?

Hi all, I have a Nikon 1 AW1 which I bought about a year ago. I use it with the kit zoom lens. The zoom lens has never left the camera since I put it on the camera when I first used it. So, it hasn't been off for over a year now. I use the camera only now and then, mostly in heavy rain or when sailing or canoeing. I don't really use it for underwater snorkeling or anything, although I sometimes have put it underwater for a short while. (So far, never had a problem with leakage or anything,...

I just get an AW1 and so far have not purchased any additional lenses. My question is this… if I use a non-waterproof lens, will I have an issue with grease from the o-ring getting on the lens?
