Fujifilm FinePix XP10 Waterproof Digital Camera

Fujifilm FinePix XP10 Waterproof Digital Camera – “Four-Proof” adventure camera

The Fujifilm FinePix XP 10 is the first in a new category of Fujifilm “Four-Proof” waterproof digital cameras – waterproof, freezeproof, shockproof, and dustproof.  The FinePix XP 10 is a redesigned of Fujifilm’s best-selling FinePix Z33WP.

Similar to the Olympus Sylus Tough 8010, the FinePix XP10 is the ultimate adventure camera.  You can drop it, submerge it, freeze it, and cover it with dirt and sand and then still take photos of whatever crazy situation you have found yourself in.  The FinePix XP10 is waterpoof up to 10 feet, shockproof up to 3 feet, and freezeproof up to 14°F so you don’t need to worry about your camera failing when you need it the most.

The design has been improved to be more ergonomic with a tactile grip finish and slim size so you can easily stash it in your pocket.  The long-life rechargeable Li-ion battery lets you take up to 200 shots without having to worry about recharging.

But what about the photo quality?  The FinePix XP 10 includes the award-winning Fujinon Lens with a 5x zoom, 12 megapixels, image stability, and lots of fun shooting modes like underwater, auction, portrait enhancer, and natural lighting modes.

Can’t decide if you should use flash or not?  Choose the Natural Light/Flash mode and the same scene is automatically captured twice, once with natural light and the second with flash so you can choose which one to keep later.

The FinePix XP10 also records movies underwater and on land in high-definition 16:9 format with just the press of a button.  Available in 5 cute colors – this thing is a steal!
