An underwater companion for the Nikon AW1 and a rugged friend for other Nikon One cameras
A perfect mate for the all weather Nikon AW1, is the Nikon AW 10mm f2.8 lens. Waterproof to 49 feet, this lens can comfortably go underwater with you on the AW1 to help you to capture breathtaking underwater scenes and can also help you navigate downpours and other tough conditions you may encounter when you are still on dry land. The rugged features do not stop at the ability to handle water, as the 10mm f2.8 is also shockproof to a height of 6.6 feet. Don’t be afraid to take your kit out in tough situations and risk missing a once in a lifetime shot, as this lens can handle a bit of action.
Handles low-light conditions easily, perfect for under the water!
Perfect for low-light conditions such as the ones you will encounter below the water, the Nikon AW 10mm features a large, bright f2.8 maximum aperture. This means it lets in more light than a lesser quality lens, allowing you to shoot at faster shutter speeds and subsequently reducing the effects of camera shake. This large aperture is also capable of producing sharp foregrounds and dreamily blurred backgrounds, further emphasising the importance of the subject matter you are focussing on. These blurry backgrounds are rendered in a beautiful and natural way, thanks to the rounded seven blade diaphragm.
A well constructed, lightweight prime lens.
Optically this lightweight little prime lens is a more than capable performer, with a construction that features 2 aspherical elements. These elements are included for the sharp images they help to produce and also for what they help to reduce, which are aberrations and imperfections. With this type of optical quality you can be sure to capture sharp images at all times and in all conditions.
Fitting right into the growing Nikon One compact system range, the AW 10mm f2.8 is a featherweight at just 118 grams and it measures just over an inch in length, so it won't get in the way sitting on the front of your equally unobtrusive camera throughout your day of adventuring.
