|The FUJIFILM FinePix XP100 Digital Camera is one tough camera, touted "4-way protection"! Waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof, and dustproof, the XP100 is ideal if you're the active type or if you're simply in the habit of protecting your investments. |
The camera can go down to 32.8' underwater, can survive a 6.6' drop, can operate in temperatures down to 14°F, and is impervious to dust - making it great on the beach! The XP100 also boasts a rubberized grip, a double lock battery compartment, an LED light, and a shockproof bumper. Adding to its "tough factor", the camera's 2.7" LCD has an anti-reflective coating for great visibility, even in direct sunlight.
In addition to capturing 14.4Mp stills, the XP100 also takes 1920 x 1080 HD video. Video recording features include a One Touch Movie Recording Button, the H.264 format, and of course, underwater movie recording. The camera also rocks 5x optical zoom to help its 28mm wide lens capture distant or near subjects. Another helpful feature is image stabilization, for clear, blur-free photos and videos, even at the full 5x zoom.
And while the XP100 might be tough, it's also a point-and-shoot, which translates into your ability to capture great photos without needing to have a photo degree. Numerous shooting modes take the guesswork out of shooting and let the camera do the heavy-lifting. Whether you're selecting from the 6 Scene SR AUTO modes or HDR or face detection, the XP has just about any shooting situation you might find yourself in, covered.
When you're done shooting and ready to share what you've shot, the XP100 helps you do that too. In-camera tagging lets you line up what you want to share when you finally do connect to a computer - movies or stills. MyFinePix Studio also helps you upload your memories by detecting new images to upload and starting automatically upon connection to your computer. Other post-production features include Photobook Assist, post capture photo and movie editing options, and a bevy of playback options.
