Reviews and criticism[edit]

DPReview.com tested the camera extensively both on land and in the sea and noted that the camera had much better image quality than other "rugged cameras" tested. They also noted, however, that "one must be extremely careful, as just a few grains of sand can end the AW1's life ... and repairing or replacing it won't be cheap."[2]
