"While it’s somewhat disappointing that the sensor in the AW1 is the same unit found on the Nikon 1 J3 and V2 models, it’s not really surprising.
Given the competitive price, which is less than most dedicated underwater housings, the AW1 is an attractive option for thrill-seeking outdoor photographers, and it’s just as home on the beach in the summer. Adopting an extended mount, with twin-seals for the new lenses while retaining compatibility with the original 1 Nikkor lenses, was a clever yet crucial solution, greatly expanding the AW1’s flexibility and potential popularity. As such, the AW1 is an intriguing reinvention of the system."
