The Nikon Coolpix AW120 Waterproof Digital Camera from Nikon is a compact point-and-shoot featuring a 16MP, 1/2.3" CMOS sensor. Its 5x optical zoom NIKKOR glass lens has a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-120mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives.

Its fast f/2.8 aperture enables effective low-light shooting and shallow depth-of-field effects. Capture high-resolution still images and full HD 1080p video with stereo sound. The AW120 is also equipped with a large, 3.0", 921k-dot OLED monitor.
The camera is underwater-ready with a depth rating of 59'. Its durable design also makes it shock-proof against drops of up to 6.6' and freeze-proof against frigid temperatures as low as 14°F. Hybrid Vibration Reduction works to counteract camera shake to help provide clear, blur-free shots, especially when shooting in low-light or at the telephoto end of the zoom range. Additionally, benefit from built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing you to share instantly to social networking sites and even control the camera remotely via your compatible smartphone or tablet. The COOLPIX AW120 also features built-in GPS functionality, an electronic compass and points of interest to help you find great locations for images and then document your travels and adventures in a photo journal. Nikon ViewNX 2 software is included to help you browse, edit and share your photos and videos.

The AW120 and S9700 seem to have been crafted from the same mold. While the latter has a 30x zoom lens and advanced-level shooting options, the AW120 skews toward simplicity but with a brawny body (waterproof down to 59 feet, shockproof up to 6.6 feet, and freeze-proof down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit). Both cameras share the same 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, 3-inch OLED display (921K dots), ISO range of 125-1,600 (up to 3,200 and 6,400 in auto mode), continuous shooting speed (five shots at 6.9 frames per second, at full resolution), contrast-detect autofocus system up to Full HD 1080/30p video capture, Wi-Fi, and GPS. (The S9700 has a faster shutter speed). Even the battery is the same. While similar, both cameras cater to different needs.
