Nikon has introduced the tough Coolpix AW130 and the family-friendly Coolpix S33, two durable compact cameras capable of capturing images and Full HD videos (even under extreme conditions).

Both are waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof and ready for most adventures. The Nikon AW130 is designed to handle adverse conditions with ease while offering a feature set designed for those with an active lifestyle, including GPS. The AW130 offers Nikon Snapbridge, where users shoot/share photos from the camera to a compatible smartphone or tablet via built-in Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

Featuring a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, the Nikon Coolpix AW130 is ideal for capturing images and Full HD 1080p video. The waterproof (100ft), shockproof (7ft) and freezeproof (14˚F) camera is ready to handle all that Mother Nature throws at it. With built-in Wi-Fi and NFC(2), users can experience quick/easy sharing of photos and videos by wirelessly connecting the camera to a compatible smartphone or tablet. Adventurous photographers can even use their smartphone to remotely trigger the camera when connected.

The Nikon AW130 also features a 3-inch, 921k-dot OLED display with updated ergonomics and a new design. For easy operation in nearly any situation, Action Control lets users easily adjust camera settings with just the flick of a wrist—even with gloves on.

With built-in GPS, Maps and POI technology (which allow the user to record the longitude and latitude of where any image was captured) and an electronic compass the Nikon Coolpix AW130 keeps you on track. Additional features include a 5x optical zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens (24mm-120mm f/2.8 max aperture) and 10x Dynamic Fine Zoom.

The Nikon Coolpix S33 is waterproof (33ft), shockproof (5ft) and freezeproof (14˚F) and features an easy-to-use interface and dedicated 1-touch buttons for simple shooting that lets the entire family shoot with ease. The 13.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and versatile 3x zoom allow users to capture images, while a dedicated movie record button allows users to shoot 1080p Full HD video at the touch of a button. The Coolpix S33 offers creative fun for the whole family, with 16 creative styles and effects options, including Underwater Face Detection, and an option to shoot videos with miniature effect.
