Waterproof. Shockproof.

Sunday, August 5, 2012


My old point-and-shoot, the Casio EX Z55, lasted seven years and died sometime this year. After a lengthy grieving process, it was time to purchase a new handy little camera that fits in the pocket. But with smartphone cameras, why buy a new point-and-shoot? Well, really, there's no point, unless of course you want to take photos underwater. Of course.

You've already been seeing photos from this new little guy, the Nikon Coolpix AW100 from a selection of a handful or two of Seattle shots. It'll feature much more prominently in the photos from Greece.

It's nice to have a camera where I don't have to worry if it rains in the middle of a hike, and that I can just tuck into my swimsuit while doggy paddling in clear waters during vacation. And then again, who doesn't want to take photos of underwater fish?

Ooh! That is intriguing! I've been on the hunt for a new point and shoot and I love the rugged aspect of this one. How does it do indoors?

That is awesome. I was in Florida this past weekend and was lamenting on my way back to the hotel that I didn't have a camera I could take into the water with me. I can't wait to see more picture from it. :)

Kris- The Nikon AW100 takes decent indoor photos. It has a max ISO of 3200 and a pretty easily adjustable exposure compensation, which makes it pretty good at night shots, too. Of course, I'm partial to my DSLR when it comes to most of these things, but I think for the size/price the camera is a pretty good all around camera.

I'm simply just looking for this data for a while. Soon after 6 hours associated with continuing Googleing, now I received it in the web site. I ponder what’s the particular Google’s challenge in which doesn’t rank this kind of useful internet websites far better the top. Usually prime web pages will be filled with trash. Especially not long ago, as soon as the innovative panda algorithm criteria update.

There isn't any wrong or right strategy to make a website. We've got web-sites
associated with one specific specific niche market
and as well web sites upon totally not related
goods. It’s genuinely your decision which usually technique you wish to head out.

One point though…you propose Digg, so why do you may spend funds using
a .net.. I’ve generally pondered when this appeared to be
vital. A response would be awesome!
