Don’t get stuck 60 feet underwater on your next Caribbean dive with a smartphone in your back pocket, expecting to retrieve it for the parrot-fish money shot.
It’ll only lead to disappointment.
Underwater, or rugged terrain, calls for a camera like Nikon’s Coolpix AW110, an otherwise basic 16-megapixel camera with 5x optical zoom lens that’s heavily fortified for outdoor use. It’s waterproof to 59 feet, shockproof to 61/2.5 feet and withstands temperatures to 14 degrees.
