|The Nikon AW1 is the world's first digital camera with interchangeable lenses that is waterproof to 49-feet deep without any protective housing and can withstand the shock of a fall from up to 6.6-feet. And the pop-up flash is waterproof and works underwater. While the camera technically works with any Nikon 1 series lens, it's only waterproof when you're using one of two new lenses: The AW 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 and the AW 10mm f/2.8. The camera will sell in a kit with the 11-27.5 lens for $800, or in a two-lens kit with both optics sets for $1000. Considering the waterproof housing Nikon offers for its J1 and J2 1-series cameras costs more that $500 on its own, the price of the total package seems pretty reasonable. The AW1 features 14.2-megapixel CX-format sensor and 6400 top ISO, along with 1080p video capture, but the new model adds thrill-seeker essentials like an altimeter, depth gauge, GPS, compass and an accelerometer-powered option for switching modes with one hand. The Nikon 1 AW1 and waterproof lenses will be available in October.
