Coolpix additions include resistance to shocks, water, dust

Nikon has revealed two additional cameras to its Coolpix range, all designed for outdoor use. The budget-priced S31 offers a cheap point-and-shoot with protection from the elements, while the AW110 offers a bigger image sensor, larger zoom, increased protection, and other outdoor-related functionality, such as GPS.

The AW110 rugged outdoors camera has a 16-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, wide-angle 5x zoom lens, an d a 3-inch OLED display. The body is dustproof, waterproof to 18 meters (59 feet), shockproof from drops of up to 2 meters (6 feet), and can work in temperatures as low as -10 Centigrade (14 Fahrenheit). It will also have Wi-Fi connectivity and will be available in a range of four colors.

The S31 takes a number of the features found in the AW110, though not to the same extremes. The 10-megapixel camera focuses on offering a clearer menu system and large buttons for easier operation. It comes with a 3x optical zoom, a 2.7-inch screen, dedicated video buttons, and automatic anti-blur technology. It retains the dust-proofing, and is shockproof from 1.2m (4 feet) drops and is waterproof to 5 meters (16 feet).

The AW110 will cost around 330 ($520) from its February 21st launch, while the S31 will cost 100 ($155).
