Keep it steady
There’s nothing worse than a shaky handheld video. As soon as you start recording with COOLPIX AW120, Hybrid VR (Vibration Reduction) activates and combats camera shake for sharper steadier home movies.
It's frustrating when a smartphone camera focuses on the wrong thing. With COOLPIX AW120, Target Finding AF quickly determines your intended subject and puts the focus where it belongs—on your subject.

When your subject is moving fast, Motion Detection automatically kicks in and selects a faster shutter speed and higher ISO (light sensitivity) to help you get sharper, clearer photos.
