I took some really great underwater photos with this camera, and some out of the water as well. The photos were good. Once I mastered it, it was easy to use. There are various useless features such as a depth gauge etc. There is also some silly thing where you shook it somehow to change settings, I didn't bother with that either!
One day I found the view finder fogging up. Then the lens fogged up, which meant the photos fogged up. I dried it out and took some more photos but it got worse again really quickly.
Once back from holiday I sent it off for repair and I was told the chassis had cracked and it was uneconomical to repair. So camera a write off!!!
When I looked on line, because I was initially going replace it like for like (or buying the later AW130 model) , I found lots of people had had problems with leaking Nikons. So wont be buy an Nikon including the AW130.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
