Question

My AW100 used to play back action movies perfectly but recently playback is stilted, it runs for a few seconds then freeze-frames for half a second

Sound is continuous even though the vision is stilted. I haven't changed any settings.

Yes it is normal, it is called Action Control. Designed so if you are wearing gloves you don't have to push a button to see next photo.

The GPS information is stored in the image Exif data. You can use Nikon View NX 2 software to view the AW100 Exif Data. There is also a Map option in View NX 2 that you can click on to load google maps and display the location. More information about the AW100 GPS is in the link below.

Question

Photo preview jumps to other photo

I have the Coolpix AW100, actually I have a few of them I've bought for work and co-workers. Whenever we preview our photos on the LCD screen if you just slightly move the camera to show to someone, the photo jumps to another photo, usually the next one. Is there a way to turn this function off or stop this from happening. It happens on every single AW100 I try it on.

Thank you

Question

How to change Video Format?

How can I make the videos I record on my Nikon AW100 play in windows media player?
The videos just wont play in any format other than quicktime. I have tried a few different ones and I finally downloaded quicktime and they played. My other camera works in windows media player and I can also view them on my Wii but with this camera they don't work on the Wii or in windows media player. Just wondering if its a software thing on the camera and if I can switch it.

The COOLPIX AW100 records movies in the .MOV file format which is a file format supported by Windows Media Player. You should not need to convert the file in order to play it in Windows Media Player.

If you are clicking on the file name to open it, check your computer's Default Programs settings to see if .MOV is set to open in QuickTime by default. If so, you can change it so the default program for .MOV is Windows Media Player.

If you are able to open/play other .MOV files in Windows Media Player but still unable to play your AW100's movies then please contact Nikon Support for additional assistance - http://support.NikonUSA.com .

Question

Took pictures without a memory card--how do I get them on my computer?

Did not realize I didn't have my memory card in when taking pictures, I have tried using the cord but cannot find it on my computer after plugging it in.

Is there another way to transfer them to a memory card? Or even just to my computer (2008 MacBook)?

To transfer pictures from the AW100 internal memory to the Memory card or vice versa:
1) Insert the memory card into the camera and turn the camera on.
2)Press the playback button to put the camera into playback mode.
3)Press the Menu button, then scroll all the way down and select COPY. There you will have the options to transfer pictures from the internal memory to the memory card or from the memory card to the internal memory.

Question

Date and Time suddenly changed to 1 year and 1 day into the past

I did a lot of heavy shooting over the last 2 weeks. At some point the date changed to 2012 and the day reversed 1 day. So the pictures I took on the 4th of July 2013 are date stamped as July 3, 2012. I was pretty sure I didn't accidentally click on Menu, Settings, datetime, change, etc. When I got into work today as was discussing it with a colleague who has the same camera, she indicated hers did the exact same thing in March 3013. Is this a reported bug? Could the GPS have somehow reset the date? Note that the time was exactly correct, just the date was a year and a day off. Also note that pictures I took in June and prior are correct. Is there a firmware update to address this? Looking forward to a reply. cheers, Chris

I've stuck it in sand and mud and so far nothing has clogged. I just rinse it off in the tub with high pressure shower hose attachment if it doesn't come out with normal sink pressure.

The AW100 comes with a UR-E23 Filter Adapter that fits around the lens. This filter adapter allows you to attach 40.5mm filters (not included) to the COOLPIX AW100. If you do not plan on using filters with your AW100 it is not necessary to attach the adapter.
