The higher-end AW100 is tougher than its predecessor AW100. It is IP68-rated for dustproof and waterproof to up 18 meters (59 feet) for up to 60 minutes, and meets MIL-STD-810F for shockproof to withstand drops from up to 2 meters (6.7 feet).  It is also freezeproof, capable of operating at temperatures from 10°C to +40°C (14°F to 104°F). The camera sports 16 Megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and a NIKKOR 5x optical zoom lens, and features lens-shift Vibration Reduction and Motion Detection to deliver clear, sharp images. It includes GPS support for adding location data to photos and videos, and also packs eletronic compass and built-in maps with POIs. Its built-in WiFi connectivity can be used for wireless transfer of photos to compatible smartphones or tablets. The AW100 is capable of Full HD 1080p video recording. It gets a 3-inch OLED display.

Users can press the dedicated video record button to start 720p HD video recording. The S31 has a 2.7-inch LCD display.

Nikon’s rugged CoolPix cameras both include Easy Auto Mode for easy shooting and a range of effects and filters for adding creative touch to photos and videos.
