Just posted: Nikon Coolpix AW110 Review

Jeff,

I have read and respected your reviews for years, so I am have difficulty reconciling two things: (A) the silver award and (B) “The OLED display on the AW110 looks great when you’re indoors. It’s bright, vibrant, and has a wide viewing angle. But, as mentioned above, the one on the back of the AW110 is nearly impossible to use outdoors, and not much better underwater, which is disappointing on a camera designed to be used in those situations. “

Where else would you use a rugged camera except outdoors or underwater? If you can’t see the display, in the absence of any other viewfinder, how do you compose a picture? It strikes me that inability to see to compose a picture is as close as you can get in any camera, let alone a rugged camera, to a fatal flaw in the camera’s design.

I get that the Nikon and the TG2 have a lot of other virtues, but lack of a decent way of composing an image strikes me as a very serious problem.
