    SH-1 Specs: That should be 16MP sensor, not 6MP

  • FMJ

    why can’t the sensor size for the tough series be any bigger? 1/1.7″ is a good start.
    not anyone can afford the Nikon AW1

      Cost? And to keep the lens a certain size? Its only 25-100mm as is. If they had to use bigger lenses, I’m guessing it be even worse. And sensors get a lot more expensive the bigger they get?

        Just to add to what you said, it’s also to archive the F2.0 rating which is a big selling point for it.

        It would be nice to have a larger sensor but that aside I am loving the specs on this new model. If they have resolved the soft/noisy IQ of last year’s model then I’m in.
