From the Manufacturer


The FinePix XP30 is Fujifilm's first rugged digital camera with GPS Geo-tagging functionality. As follow up to the highly successful XP10 "Four-Way Protection" digital camera, the XP30 digital cameras takes it a step further. Now, it's waterproof to 16.5ft (5M) and shockproof to 5 ft (1.5M), and still freezeproof to 14°F (-10°C) and dustproof.

The FinePix XP30 features a 14-megapixel CCD sensor, a 2.7-inch anti-reflective, high-contrast LCD for better viewing in bright sunlight and a high-precision, FUJINON 5x wide angle refractive optical zoom lens (28mm equivalent) with a reinforced hardened glass lens barrier. The ergonomically-designed camera is housed in a metal uni-body chassis for durability. With a riveted front panel and ergonomic body shape featuring a smart two-tone design, the cameras come in a variety of different colors, making it the perfect camera for an extreme outing or just a relaxing night out on the town.

Fujifilm FinePix XP30 Highlights

GPS Geo-Tagging
The FinePix XP30 features GPS Geo-Tagging in a rugged, outdoor model. What's more, the GPS features on the camera not only tell you where you are in the world, but it also offers additional functions that are essential for outdoor shooting. Locations can be displayed either as longitude and latitude or by place name.

The FinePix XP30 has an embedded list featuring approximately half a million places of interest across the globe. When a shot is taken, the image is tagged with location information, enabling you to quickly find shots of a place you've visited. Should users then want to create a photo book of a specific location they can do so using the PhotoBook Assist feature where you can tag images then turn the pages of the book on the camera's rear LCD.

In addition, if you visit a location that you want to return to but can't remember which way to go, the Photo Navigation mode is invaluable. Simply find a shot of the location and the FinePix XP30 will not only tell you how far it is from your current spot, it'll show you the direction you need to travel to get there.

Those wanting to draw up a map of their travels should take advantage of the XP30's GPS Tracking Data function. With this feature, the camera regularly stores location data and, when you return home and download the shots to a PC, this information can be turned into a map illustrated with the pictures you took along the way.

Four-Way Protection
The FinePix XP30 is perfect for active families on the go that want a camera they can take anywhere without worrying about its safety. Consumers can drop them, soak them, freeze them, and even cover them in dirt and mud, and these cameras will come out unscathed. Not only are they waterproof up to 16.5 feet, but they're also shockproof up to 5 feet, freezeproof up to 14°F and dust proof. The "life proof" XP30 gives users total confidence that they can take them wherever they go, whatever they are doing, regardless of the conditions.

Easy Web Upload
Sharing photos online has become an everyday activity for many people, so Fujifilm includes the Facebook/YouTube Automatic Upload feature that makes for quicker and easier modes of posting photos/videos on social networking sites. This feature allows users to identify and tag a photo for Facebook or YouTube upload. Once the camera is connected to a PC and MyFinePix Studio software is launched, all marked photos or movies will upload directly to Facebook or YouTube at the press of a button.

HD Capability
The FinePix XP30 also offers stunning movies in 720p with sound at 30 frames per second with one touch ease. Many consumers are happy to enjoy HD movies on their PC, but with the optional HD Player accessory kit, with wireless remote control (HDMI cable not included), families can gather around their home HDTV to enjoy amazingly detailed stills and high resolution movie playback.

Tracking Auto Focus (AF)
Created specifically to capture an action shot, the AF function tracks fast moving subjects so they don't escape from the frame in a blur. Subjects will be tracked automatically for as long as it is kept in the frame and the shutter is half-pressed; when users fully press the shutter button your subject will be in the center of the photo in perfect focus.

Advanced Image Stabilization
The XP20 and XP30 have a powerful sensor shift Dual Image Stabilization (CIS) system. CIS works as the photo is being taken as it combines a mechanically stabilized sensor with high ISO to combat camera/hand shake and subject movement for improved low light shooting. The result is an expanded range of shooting situations where the cameras can be used without the need of a tripod or other support. With CIS working in the background, you can capture sharp, colorful scenes and portraits underwater or at night.

I did have high hopes for this camera, even though it is priced so low. The reviews that could find were pretty good. First the good: It is a solidly built, attractive camea that fits well in the hand. The image stablization seems very good. After going through several cameras destroyed by damage I was looking for something I could take cycling, hiking, etc and have it survive modest drops, rain and sand. It might be that this camera will handle the elements well, but I was so unhappy with the quality of the pictures and the camera's performance that I wil be returning it today.

The first big negative is that it takes 4-5 seconds to start up. Given that the most recent coolpix cameras are basically instant on their startup I really don't see an excuse for this. Second, the auto focus is extremly slow, often 2+ seconds. And finally the shutter lag after depressing the button is 2 seconds. This means from the time I take the camera out of my cycling jersy until I can take a picture is 9 seconds. That is a long, long time.

Secondly, this camera is pretty much the worst I have seen in low light conditions. And I use "low light" loosely since basically anything other than full sunlight is a problem. Anything inside, even with full lighting, will be blurred. The other thing is that inside pictures make very "orange" looking pictures unless the flash is used.

The description of the camera tauts its ability to take "sports" pictures and to "hold" focus on moving objects. I just can't agree with this at all. I tried a whole variety of pictures of moving objects including running children, cyclists and slow moving cars and it just blurs. I wish I could upload some pictures taken with the camera to show what I am talking about.

I have used this for about 500 pictures in different settings and I have to say, the picture quality is poor. There is a complete lack in depth of focus. I took a team picture, two rows of athletes, and all of the faces except the two kids in the middle were blurry.

When taking video there is an inherent vibration that makes watching anything more than 10 seconds, sickening. This includes videos taken using a tripod.

I want to start by saying that a lot of the reviews for this camera really surprise me. You buy a camera that is designed to be abused and then complain that it doesn't have the best picture quality?

Nikon, Panasonic, and others make a camera very similar to the Fuju XP30. The major difference is the XP30 cost about a third of the other makers.

This camera feels like it should be fragile but you really can drop it, drown it, and use it in some extreme conditions. The picture quality is outdoor daytime lighting is very good. The optical zoom in a camera like this is a nice feature that comes in handy. The GPS doesn't only work well it's amazing that this camera even has one. I challenge you to find any other camera with built in (real)GPS for under $130. They just don't exist.

The low light quality is not good but I wouldn't expect to take decent photos in low light with a $130 point and shoot camera.

The one place that this camera does suffer is it's battery life. This thing will chew right through it's charge in less than a day. The best thing you can do is buy a second battery if you are going on vacation and plan to be taking a lot of photos. If you are only going to be using it for four or five hours of shooting between charges you shouldn't need a second battery.

Overall you are going to have a hard time beating this camera. Waterproof, dust proof, drop resistant, cold resistant, and GEO tagging for under $130. I've seen a lot of $130 point and shoot cameras that don't even include a battery.

I love this camera for underwater pictures, they turned out great! The only cons, and reason for 4 out of 5 stars is, you cant see the pictures on the display screen in the sunlight(we waited till we put it on the laptop) and I could not take a decent picture indoors. I just didnt have time to play with the camera before we travelled. I am sure there is a way to make the camera take great pictures indoors or in our case, in underground caves.

I took this camera to the beach, more specifically, surfing. It did a great job of catching my friends riding waves and wiping out. Easy to operate the functions even through my 3mm surfing gloves.

I love the one touch video function. You can zoom in & out while in video mode. It also allows for "scene' modes. I didn't really need those on this trek so I kept everything on "Auto". The pics and vids came out really good.

I couldn't find the max zoom on it (digital), but I was in the ocean, so I wasn't going to screw around with settings too much.

Very durable display screen. I kept it tucked in my wetsuit and it didn't get a single scratch. I highly recommend the Olympus Float Strap for around $13 so you don't end up camera-less with it acting as a new fish home at the bottom of the ocean floor. Get a bright color so you don't lose it in all the white water.

Overall, it's a good waterproof camera.
