The photos taken with the AW120 are good as long as the light is adequate; images begin to deteriorate in dark, cloudy days, for example. The post-exposure processing is slow even for a small camera, so don't expect to do a lot of rapid shooting! Also, the waterproofing seems to be good; I haven't tried dropping it yet.
I have only had this camera a couple of weeks so it's still in the testing stage, but so far I am satisfied with its features and picture quality. I have not as yet tested it under water, so we will see. The only downside is the battery life between charges is not what I have been used to with other pocket cameras and I hate the fact that you can only charge the battery inside the camera. What was Nikon thinking when they decided to not provide a seperate charger. I will need to buy a spare battery and I need to research if there is a compatable wall charger for this battery.
