Good camera to carry around all the time
by Chella Kumar P M on 2014-11-18
1) Compact and light weight
2) Waterproof, I would rather call it kid proof
3) GPS works really well
4) Wifi Tranfer - This is a feature worth having all the time, it works really well and you can even use your phone as a view finder and shoot photos
5) Excellent Battery backup - I think Nikon is being modest by saying 200, it can go on for even 300+
1) None, cos I didn't pay for a DSLR camera to expect so
It could not replace a regular Point & Shoot
by Venkatraman M on 2014-09-04
I am using the camera and didn't bought it from flipkart. The videos quality is very good. The photo quality is average. The normal Canon/Nikon point and shoot cameras can give better picture than this camera.
This is water proof camera. This will be useful when you are going for hiking/trekking. I have tried in underwater also. If the lighting is good, it can take very good under water videos. I am just using this as backup camera.

1- Real rugged (Read further for this)
2- Very good in macro
3- Very nice video quality
4- Geo tagging
1- Manual focus, app for Windows fone and RAW format are missing
2- App should be improved to take video
3- Slow motion video is not so effective
After a week of purchase when I was with this camera in the beaches of Goa, I realized that the sand went into the zooming lever section and zooming lever was not moving at all. This was real bad but I cant blame Nikon for this because they never claimed that its dust proof. It was my fault and I was sad on that because the camera was not even 7 days old. Reached back to guest house and thought is cleaning the camera. Kept it under tap water and used the brush came along with the kit. After 5 mins of cleaning, I realized all was well. Zoom lever started working. I could remove the sand properly. The camera was back like a brand new one. This was an awesome feeling and gave me confidence on the ruggedness of the camera. Anything is wrong of this sort, wash it.
I go for swimming. I have taken it many times for in the pool, close to 16 feet deep. It works like charm. Video quality is very good.
Images are quite sharp and colorful.I did a lot of food photography. It does this job wonderfully good. HDR works decently good. High speed, night portrait, beach, fireworks, etc. mode are good. Geo tagging does a good work. I have used WiFi and app for a live tweeting of an event and it went very good. Within 2 mins pics were online. Click + transfer + tweet = Done quick.
Even if you have a DSLR, this is a must buy. I was taking pics easily when my DSLR friends were running away from waves and I clicked a star fish under water. Loving it.
Nikon Coolpix AW120 - Small Package, decent features
by Sandeep on 2014-08-06
Just bought this Nikon Camera. Found it very handy and well built. Picture quality is better than average even in low light. GPS takes about 4-5 minutes to activate, but is fairly accurate. Pictures also record altitude information, which could be interesting when compiling those hiking trip pics.
Well built, natural light photos are great but flash photos are very different
by Rajaram Sivananda on 2015-01-05
The camera feels solid, though there is a little rattle of the lens when you shake the camera. Understand this rattle is normal from the service centre. The natural light photos are nice, but the ones taken with flash are terrible, quite often. I don't know whether it is my camera or generally so will take it to the service centre. With flash some photos are fine, but some photos are all bleached with excessive light. As you can see I am not a photography wizard, but am using this in auto, and have used several camera in the past. This is the worst with flash. Well I have got used to changing the more from Easy Auto for natural light and Auto for flash photos. Have dunked in water and no issues with that. Well built and solid. I would buy another camera if I had to again.
Very Average for a 16MP camera.
by MVP on 2015-01-06
The picture quality of the camera in auto mode is worse than a phone camera. Please refrain from buying this product.
by Mohit Sinha on 2015-08-12
I have used this product as it is meant to be used . Underwater, freezing temp, Extreme heat. This camera just does the trick . The only place where it lacks is daylight pic quality, and too much flash in nightshots. Otherwise it just rocks underwater. My advise : Its the must have if u wanna have underwater memories.
Terrible low light photographs. Flash photos are very inconsistent
by Rajaram Sivananda on 2015-01-27
Don't buy this product, I am disappointed with the way the flash works. Daylight photos are good, and the camera robust. There is a rattle in the lens when the camera is off, apparently this is normal.

Its The Best digicam you can buy within ? 15000. I bought during the diwali mela and got it for around 14k. It actually is a Damn good Water proof device. Used it in Mauritius and very easy to clean also. I recommend it to every one. 5* to flipkart for awesome delivery, ie, in just 3 days. A definite must buy. The pouch, however, i received was smaller and had to buy separatly from Nehru Place, Delhi.
I enquired abt the same model there, which i was getting around ?2000 cheaper, ie, around ? 11500 but honestly i dont trust those shop keepers there. With Flipkart you have some sense of piece of mind that incase anything goes wrong, they can replace the item.
by Kern Martis on 2014-10-01
Picture quality not good. Bad low light photos and bad flash. Also i got the wrong camera case with my camera. The pouch is smaller than the camera.

If you have a kid, or you love outdoors, this camera is meant for you!
by Prasad Patil on 2015-02-09
I purchased this from Amazon.in in the lightning deals, got this for just Rs. 12.5k. That was an awesome deal!
The camera was delivered very fast and packaging was good too!
If you have a kid in your home, who just drops the things on the floor, or throws things in a tub full of water,
This camera is helpful for you, as it is shockproof, and also waterproof.
The quality of the pictures is just superb, outdoors and even indoors with the correct flash setting.
Prior to purchasing this, I was planning to buy a Gopro, which costs almost double than this.
No doubt, the "quality" of the video produced by Gopro is way better than this, but with this you get a very good display,
Zoom options and additional features like electronic compass (it is very accurate), GPS, maps (not navigation, just maps), and altimeter. If you are a traveler, or love outdoors, then these features are very handy.
To show you how well this product was packed by Amazon, I have made an unboxing video of the same.
You can search on YouTube for "Nikon Coolpix AW120 black Unboxing and setup" by prasad patil.
Hope this helps!
Awesome! Exceeded expectations!
by Dr Mandar Mahavir Shah on 2015-03-30
Purchased AW120 specifically for underwater photography as we were travelling to Maldives. We took some amazing underwater shots and videos. Super clarity. Totally Impressed! Hadn't had great expectations about image quality after reading some reviews. But trust me, the images, both video and still, both underwater as well as outdoors, on the beach, indoors, in the ocean, sunset, everything came out wonderfully well. So much so that we did not need to use our semi dslr camera much which we had taken with us. Also the wifi works supersmooth unlike what some reviews mentioned. At a price of 12.something K, couldn't have asked for a better deal. Highly recommended. (PS: The images below are whatsapp images, so downsized and of lesser resolution. Original snaps are much better).
What more can I ask for? I can't be greedier than this.
by Ali Shaikh on 2014-12-26
Just WOW !
Impeccable Impressive. Unbelievable!
This is E'Pic. I am running out of words for praising.
I ordered the camera Yesterday Evening (24th Dec 2014) and I got it the next Morning (25th Dec 2014).
Even Santa is not a competition for Amazon. Way to Go. 5 STARS FOR AMAZON.
BTW, As per the website it said 4GB Card with Camera Case,
But to my surprise I got an 8GB Top Notch Lexar Card Plus an HDMI cable and Nikon Coolpix Case, Can you believe this Dildaari?
Though the case was not fitting, so called up Amazon and they gave me 250 bucks and told to keep the small case too.
So I again order other Camera Case from Amazon only.
Now let’s talk about this TOUGH GUY Nikon Coolpix AW120---5 Starts Again of course.
This is my 1st Camera and It's Futureproof. Mashallah
Just ignore what people say about the Image Quality, I don't know what they expect, honestly if you want to click a Pic better than your Smartphone in Extreme or Normal Lonavala/Mulshi Waterfall than GO for It. As simple as that. All in all a best camera for Worst ever condition.
I am not a wildlife Photographer or something, but I do live my life wild, an investment on a camera with this features is the Best Bet if you want to allocate a budget for it.
The camera comes with a battery and its own charger with the USB cables as mentioned in the Box. It's a complete package, I never felt so aggressive from being a lazy bum and to write a long review.
The motivation factor was the clarity in the Images and Videos. It takes crisp and clear pictures and videos, there are 2 dedicated flash one more Image and other for Video. The OLED screen is WoW.
FLOATING STRAP IS MUST IF YOU DO UNDERWATER SHOOTING ...
by KALPESH DHOTRE on 2015-02-22
This is my second Nikon All weather camera....First I Owned AW110 ...both these camers are awesome ...I will not talk about features as they are available on nikon website.
I strongly recommend you to purchase FLOATING STRAP(select Red or yellow, which is easy to locate in sunlight) is MUST have Accessory for this kind of cameras.
I lost my first camera in GOA sea while taking photographs. I dropped it in waves and trust me it not possible to locate in shallow water too......
So I bought this AW120...This one has some good features like Better lens than AW110, Battery can be charged by USB port that means you can use solar charger or PowerBank.
Go For It ..

One of the best underwater cameras in India
by PR on 2015-08-09
The sporty look of the camera is really awesome. Its small and handy but the picture quality is mediocre for normal pics. However the usp of the camera lies in the other features, most importantly the underwater mode. The underwater pics are really good, even the video qly underwater is good. Another nice feature which I really liked is its high-speed video options. It would have been a great buy if the normal pic quality was good; however, this drawback is somehow compensated with its other good features. All in all for the price which I got it for the camera is satisfactory.
Nice but some tips for a great experience.
by Mridul Goel on 2016-02-20
Superb product. Tried underwater photographs while snorkel, scuba and swimming pool. Works great. Just take care that you dry the camera with a cotton cloth after underwater use and do not put it in sunlight after underwater use as it will fog the lens and the pics will by hazzy.
Stopped Working after first under water shoot but Nikon surprised me
by Jibin on 2015-11-27
I bought this camera last October and used mainly regular outdoor photography, camera performance was average. At night with flash ON it gives you worst images. Few months back first time I took this camera for under water photography, to my surprise it stop working after clicking 4-5 pics. It was looking like water went inside I was totally disappointed and taken my camera to service centre. They mentioned they need to send it to their head quarters for servicing and it will take at least 10 days. Rust was visible on the corners and I was not very confident for repairing as service centre guy told me they may say the camera was not closed properly.
Now here comes the surprise, I got a call from service centre to collect my cam and I went there. Believe me Nikon has replaced my Cam with a brand new AW 130 free of cost. I was like WoW. I was 100% sure I closed my camera properly and may be I got a defective piece which result this experience. Nikon showed their professionalism by replacing my camera with upgraded model. Thank you Nikon
Great camera in and out the water!
by Silvermouse on 2014-09-12
Excellent camera! I tried it in the ocean and inside a swimming pool, it did took great pictures and no water got inside. Outside of the water takes great pictures too. One complain I have is the panoramic feature it does not allow you to take a freely size. It is 280 or 360 degrees only. It locks on these 2 degrees. The zoom is good and pictures are sharp. I got the wrong color camera I ordered orange and I got a green camouflage I could not return it because I was leaving to Thailand next day and I wanted to take the camera to use it on the ocean. I am very disappointed about this mistake with Amazon India, now I am stock with a color I really do not like. The delivery was on time.
The Nikon aw 120 is a good camera but not as good as the aw 100 ...
by Mr. Yash on 2015-10-16
The Nikon aw 120 is a good camera but not as good as the aw 100 which is now discontinued. I used to own one.. This camera does have some significant improvements over that one. The two main improvements that I can mention are the wide lens and at 24 millimetres it is much wider than the previous generation ..and also the WiFi function which lets you connect the camera to your phone without the need of a router or anything like that nearby. it's quite fast in connection to your phone it may not necessarily be something you want to use on a regular basis because it drains out the battery very fast
One bad thing about this camera is that the charging happens internally and there's no External charger provided for the battery so even if you buy another battery you cannot charge it at the same time while you use the camera the waterproof feature works just as it should it really is waterproof up to 30 metres or more, and the only thing that I did not like too much was the blue colour.... I would have chosen another colour but this was far cheaper. the camera cost me 11200 approximately the delivery was very fast. There was a small Glitch with which the Amazon team was extremely supportive and help me immensely in solving this issue this brings me a lot of confidence to shop with Amazon in the future.
