AW1_11_27.5_WH_frt34rWhen it comes to waterproof cameras, they tend to be rather bulky and while some are able to capture decent photos, we guess the main highlight would be the fact that it can withstand submersion under water, allowing photographers to snap underwater photos of themselves, fishes, corals, and etc. Well if you’re in the market for a waterproof camera that is also an interchangeable lens camera, Nikon might have the answer for you in the form of the AW1.

The AW1 is the first interchangeable lens camera that can be taken underwater without the need for a protective housing, or at least that what Nikon claims, which means that if you’re looking to take your underwater photography to the next level, the AW1 could be it. However it should be noted that just because it is an interchangeable lens camera doesn’t mean that all lenses are waterproof, and you will need to find a waterproof lens if you wish to use it to full effect. Nikon has released some sample photos of the camera on its website, so if you wish to learn more about the camera or see what sort of photos it can achieve, hit up Nikon’s website for the details.
