Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. COOLPIX AW100

Question

Can the Action Control on the AW100 be turned off?

I bought the AW100 to replace my Olympus waterproof, but returned it when I found that the Action Control was always active in Playback mode. So, if you hand the camera to someone else to look at a picture, and move it a little too much, the picture changes to a different one. Very annoying and unnecessary.

Can the Action Control be turned off entirely, or at least for the Playback mode?

I havent been able to find a way to turn off the action control feature either, but, I have set it to the lowest possible setting and it seems to subdue it enough to stop it from working unless you overly magnify the 'shake' used to make it work. . I set mine to 1 and it is almost impossible for it to flip through the photos unless I use a very exagerated motion. Don't be too hard on the little guy, it is still a very sweet camera. Maybe they can fix this in a firmware update and add an 'off' button for the feature.

I stopped at Best Buy today, and tested the camera to see if the Action Control could be turned off. I could not turn it off, despite your saying it can be done. No matter what I tried, I still got an unintentional and annoying slide show when moving the camera in Playback mode.

I'm interested in buying the camera again. Perhaps you can try turning off the Action Control on an actual camera and let me know? Or, give me (and others who have the same issue) very specific instructions to over-ride the "feature".

If you connect the camera to your computer and have access to a PTP (Picture Taking Protocol) library, you can write a program to simulate a timelapse feature (you will have to stitch the photos together afterwards). I've succeeded with 12MP timelapse photos (16MP seems to crash the camera).

Actually it is 10M, which is 33 ft. but for no more than 1 hour. There are also very specific instructions on how to treat the camera after using it underwater, especially in salt water. I would not recommend using it underwater and then just putting it away. You need to follow the procedures in the Manual.

The GPS information becomes part of the information records in every picture (EXIF data) along with aperture, etc. The benefit is that some software will allow you to see a map of the world showing where you took every shot.

recently answered this question in a previous post. In order to transfer the info to google earth and view it, that is a function built into the ViewNX software. However. If you want to post the route to Map My Ride or some other site, you can’t' do it in its native format.

What you can do is locate the .LOG file on the camera NCFL folder. It will be listed by date# Then download that file to your computer. Go to a website called GPS visualizer.om and convert the file to a .GPX file. Now you can take that and upload it to other websites for tracking and mapping. You can also see elevation and time and distance.

I use another site called everytrail.com and I can also post videos and photos along the time line and then share that on facebook.

Hopefully If I answer this question enough times, NIKON will get the message and incorporate this function into the next version of ViewNX. Unless you have your PC handy, it seems silly to only be able to view and log the stuff in the Nikon app.

The places on the camera where any strap will attach have very small holes so only a very thin string can fit through. I've read many reviews of various brands of floating straps and many people have lost their camera because that string that attaches the floating part to the camera broke.

I'm guessing that these people who lost their camera had the strap around their arm or wrist and were not holding on to the camera itself while swimming. I've done the same thing when I used to buy those disposable Kodak underwater cameras that use a heavy duty rubber band for a strap.

Since I plan to actually hold the camera in my hand while snorkeling or taking pictures in the surf, I wanted the extra protection of a wrist strap. The wrist strap that got the best user reviews - concerning the strength of the thin string part that attaches to the camera itself - was the Nikon AN-CP19 Replacement Strap. It's available at Amazon for $5.95 as of this writing.

The camera will sink but you can purchase a floating strap so if you let go of it while in the water it will float by the strap. I recommend buying a bright colour so if the camera happens to get away from you, you'll be able to spot it from afar.

Per the users manual page 36: http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/kie88335f7869dfuejdl=-cww2/AW100EN.pdf

In Continuous H mode: While the shutter-release button is pressed all the way, images are
captured continuously at a rate of about 7.1 frames per second
(when the image mode is Q 4608×3456). Shooting ends when
the shutter-release button is released, or three pictures have been
taken continuously.

Did you have trouble finding this information online or just didn't bother to do a little search?

Hope this helps!

The maximum movie length for a single movie is 4 GB or 29 minutes, even when there is sufficient
free space on the memory card. The maximum movie recording time for a single movie is
displayed during recording. It doesn't have exposure lock feature.

If you mean what I think you mean, no, the screen doesn't flip out. You cant see yourself on the screen with the lens facing you.

Some Nikon cameras have "D-lighting" feature which is not HDR (uses only one exposure) but, like HDR, tries to improve the dynamc range of a photo

You can use it when light is coming from behind the subject, throwing features or details into
shadow.

Question

Memory Card

On a previous question one of the members of the staff stated "Approved memory cards for the AW-100 are SanDisk, Toshiba, Panasonic and Lexar". According to an Amazon reviewer, the Lexar 128GB SDXC (Class 10) card did not work with the Nikon Coolpix AW100. Is there a limit on the capacity (GB) of the memory cards for the Nikon Coolpix AW-100?

I tried the Lexar 128GB SDXC without knowing the reference made on Amazon. I didn't even get a chance to TRY and format it in the camera. A message popped up and said "This card cannot be used." That's unfortunate, but I read a reference in one of the OTHER posted questions here, that card write times slow down as they get full. If that's the case, maybe it's better to go with several smaller cards? Just a thought.

Question

Why is it necessary to remove the strap during underwater use? Swimming while holding the camera without the strap - an accident waiting to happen.

I've put a wrist strap on the camera for underwater use. The strap is short enough to be secure on my wrist and not slip off around my hand.

The Strap is recommended for land use, since tiwisting the camera strap under water around your neck may cause suffocation.

Question

The Macro function is not working in any mode. Brand new and out of the box...hasn't left the house.

Tried taking the battery out and putting it back in. Not my first coolpix, so I know how the function should work. Have a L18 that I love.

I dont have a specific "MACRO" button on mine. I read that it shoots MACRO up to less than an inch by simply setting the zoom to "W" and then taking the picture. Here is a phtoo I took using that technique. Is this not "MACRO"?
