Thanks to Nikon Australia I have just taken on a couple of the Nikon AW1’s for filming underwater for “The Next Level” series. For many film professionals out there the standard for the past few years has been the Go Pro series. While they are good, the lack of ability to program them or even see what you are filming has been its Achilles heal. Now with the introduction of the AW1, full HD video with total manual control is at our fingertips. I look forward over the next couple of months filming with the AW1 and I’ll be sure to let everyone know how it performs soon.
So what is the AW1?, well the easiest is to read the words from Nikon…..From black diamond slopes to tropical reefs to bustling city streets – count on the Nikon 1 AW1 for beautiful images wherever you go. It’s the world’s first waterproof, dustproof and shockproof interchangeable lens camera. Rugged with a refined premium design, it’s the perfect companion from quiet moments to exhilarating adventures.
Discover the world of underwater photography with the Nikon 1 AW1’s waterproof capabilities. Featuring an Auto Distortion Control for correcting barrel and pincushion distortion, the Nikon 1 AW1 lets you explore depths of up to 15 meters and capture images in exquisite detail all the way.
