Not to make light of a very interesting camera, but I'd just as soon get a couple Pentax WG-3's for that price.  I have a W90 that has been in pools, ocean and rain and has macro and time lapse features.  I've also had it 200 feet in the air suspended with a kite and strapped to my motorcycle for half a day.  It's always in my briefcase at work and slips into a pocket.  That said, it's interesting to see Nikon upping the mirrorless market.

Same here. The IQ of the Nikon 1 sensors isn't much better.

If they dropped the price and put the Sony RX100 sensor in it, then it would be interesting.

The old 35mm film Nikonos is still sought after, I keep my eye out to snag one on craigslist.
 
It does seem a little strange that after Nikon announces that mirrorless sales are tanking and that they will concentrate on DSLR's, and perhaps some other new products, this pops up.   It sounds great, a little pricey, perhaps, but the price of a underwater enclosure is breath taking, so its probably a good deal. 
 
It does seem that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are busily at work over at Nikon, they need to get their story straight about their mirrorless line.
 
I have to congratulate Nikon for a good step, there is nothing like it!

Nikon AW1 underwater mirrorless
« Reply #18 on: September 20, 2013, 05:55:55 AM »
Nikon announced the new Nikon AW1 underwater camera.

I KNOW that CR is maybe not the best place to post this topic... but maybe this new product from Nikon is a wake up call for Canon regarding the next generation of EOS M mirrorless cameras.

Key features:

- 1/16000 sec. shutter speed
- Video Full HD at 60 fps and VGA ( 640/480 ) at 400 fps.
- Water proof up to 15m ( 49 ft)
- 14MP resolution
-  ISO 160 - 6400

Finally a solution for the usual case when you're 15m deep and 1/8000 of a sec is too bright.

Nikon 1 AW1

With a small sensor and expensive price, I never really considered Nikon 1 as "legitimate" competitor against APS-C sized mirrorless cameras.  However, with this product innovation, I guess this made Nikon 1 at least reasonable for sports and adventure-crazed photographers who wants something more than a weather-sealed camera.  Will EOS-M follow through?
