Compact and portable, yet rugged enough to handle even the most trying of conditions, the blue FinePix XP90 Digital Camera from Fujifilm is a point-and-shoot featuring water, shock, freeze, and dustproof construction. A 16.4MP 1/2.3" CMOS sensor produces high-resolution stills and full HD 1080p video, which is complemented by a 5x Fujinon zoom lens that covers a 28-140mm equivalent focal length range. Sensor-shift image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake while features such as an Action Camera mode and a 320 fps Slow Motion mode provide additional creative options when recording video. A rear LCD monitor features an anti-reflective coating for greater visibility in a variety of lighting conditions, and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity permits one-touch transferring of imagery to linked mobile devices, as well as wireless remote controlled shooting from smartphones and tablets.

The camera uses SD memory cards. The box is super bare bones: the camera, a lanyard wrist strap, three paper packages (one basic manual), a battery, a microUSB cable, and an ultra miniature AC adapter. Here's something I really hate about this camera - no owner's manual. They include a really bad "basic" paper manual. That manual is written in tiny type and covers just about what a single fold up sheet of paper with pictures usually covers - and the stupid thing is thick. In order to really use this camera, you have to go on line and read the manual there. Fujifilm doesn't even include a clear web address for the manual. I hate this part of the camera. The only way to charge the battery out of the box is with a microUSB cable - either with the included adapter, a USB port on a computer, any other USB AC adapter, or a powerbank battery. There is no external charger included.
The XP90 produces good pictures, it is easy to operate, very compact, and almost impossible to destroy. It is a lot less expensive than a cell phone - so if you really want to take pictures under water, at the beach, or out in the cold - this is a good choice. Adding a bulky water proof case to your phone, yeah you can do that, but it isn't really ideal.
The camera is about the width and length of a iPhone 4 - yes it is fairly short and narrow. It is chunky though - over an inch thick. It also has a good heft to it, meaning you know you have it in your hand and can hold it reasonably well. After carrying around an iPhone 6 Plus in my pocket, this camera slips in my pocket easily. Because it is so rugged, I have no fear of breaking it in my pocket.
The camera starts instantly. I've never seen a digital camera start up this fast, by the time I release the On/Off button, the camera is ready to shoot. Autofocus is OK, pretty fast, but not super fast. Honestly, it is about as fast as an iPhone. There is a very slight shutter delay, after achieving focus with a half press, it still takes a beat to fire the shutter. If you select a fancy filter (like star effect or sketch - stuff you wouldn't normally choose), there is a very long delay after taking the picture to process that filter. Burst mode at 10 frames per second takes a pretty long time to finish writing all the images to the memory card. This is not a sports / action camera for still photographers. It will do high speed bursts in a pinch, but not something you would use regularaly.
The controls are super easy to reach and work really well. The shutter release is exactly where I expect it. The zoom buttons are just above the nice raised spots for my thumb. The zoom control works really smooth - medium speed to start with and then very fast. When holding the camera to view the screen, not taking a picture, the menu and selection buttons are very easy to use, and fairly intuitive. The only control I hate is the record button for movies. It is very hard to find, and I can't really press it by feel alone. It is hard to stop video (you'll need to clip off the very last few seconds of every video because you will wiggle the camera and make noise while pressing that button).
The camera has fantastic low light capability. This is something most cell phones do really well. The Fujifilm camera does even better. There is very little noise and the blacks show up black and clean. I think the camera must be doing some kind of automatic processing for night time pictures. After taking a picture it takes a long time to write the image to the card, and there is virtually no blur from camera shake even at 1/4 second exposure. The camera does a lot of things automatically, so it is hard to tell what is going on in the background.
Daylight pictures are very sharp and can support a lot of enlargement. Where this camera really wins versus cell phones is the lens. The optical zoom range is excellent - 28mm to 140mm 35mm equivalent is far better than any cell phone. 28 is just the right wide angle for group pictures, and is really well controlled with barrel distortion. The telephoto end is just good enough for people, kids, and portraits. It doesn't really work for sports photography, the lens just isn't long enough.
Where a cell phone wins is with close ups. This camera is horrible with close focusing. With a cell phone I can grab a quick picture of a label on a device, something 1 inch by 2 inches. This camera just can't focus that close or do that much magnification. I use a camera to do product pictures - and a cell phone is the best choice for that job. I just couldn't use this camera for that.
The screen is pretty easy to see. There is no viewfinder. That screen is about 3/4 of an iPhone 4 - not small, but not big either. It is fairly easy to see in bright sunlight. Composing a picture with this screen is not easy.
Focus is another strange thing. The camera doesn't always do exactly what I expect. The focus sensor is in the center of the frame. A half press of the shutter release achieves and locks focus and exposure (yellow and green cross in the center, no focus the center cross is red and a A! shows up). I tried a lot of close up pictures and even pictures of people - the camera achieved focus and the screen looked like what I wanted was in focus, the resulting pictures were bad news. The camera actually grabbed focus way behind the subject. If the camera had a peeking function (quick button press to zoom in on the focus area), that would totally solve the problem.
The advantage with a cell phone with focus, I've gotten so used to touching the screen to point where I want focus and exposure. The camera does not do that, you're stuck with center focus only.
Movies are good, better than cell phone video. There are a lot of choices for frame rate, and resolution. It does have a high speed mode for short clips. The camera chases focus and exposure a lot. And the small screen doesn't really allow me to preview what the thing is doing. The image stabilizer is not great - you really have to hold the camera still to get good steady video. With all the image stabilization built into the camera I expected almost steady cam smoothness. That didn't happen.
This is a rugged camera - it can be dropped, thrown in the water (down to 50 feet), frozen, and sand blown all over it - and it will continue to take pictures. Of course dropping it will chip the paint and dent the thing up, but it won't break. The battery, memory, and charge port cover is really well made. It requires a button press and twist to open. A really great design.
Viewing pictures is an mixed bag outing. You can easily view pictures on the LCD screen even if it is super small. There is an HDMI port inside the battery compartment. It uses that super tiny micro HDMI connection (no cable is included in the box). You can remove the SD card and transfer pictures directly to your computer with a card reader. You can connect the camera to your cell phone with an app. Or you can go through one of the most painful set up processes I have ever seen, and transfer pictures wirelessly to your computer.
The camera comes with no software. Fujifim expects you to go to their website or the app store and get their software. There is no bundled picture or video editing program. Frankly, finding their software on the website was a major pain in the neck. There was nothing intuitive about finding what I needed.
It comes down to two programs needed for the camera - remote control, and computer download.
Remote control is with a cell phone connected to the camera. You'll need the Fujiflim Cam Remote app from the Apple App store or the Android store. This app is heinous to work with. Nothing it does is intuitive, and it tends to quit after I try to do something. Don't ask all the steps involved to get the camera to work with a cell phone - I tried so many things and finally just backed into the solution. Basically, the camera and cell phone are connected via WiFi, and you'll have no internet access while connected to the phone. Yes you can "live" view from the camera, take pictures, and in theory download pictures from the camera to your cell phone (why you want to do that is beyond me, but OK). I was never able to get a picture to transfer. The "live" view lags so far behind real time, it is ridiculous. Phone to camera is a cute trick, but not exactly super useful.
Connecting the camera to a computer is impossible to set up, but then once it is set up seems to work pretty well. Instead of removing the SD card or connecting the camera to a computer, you can use your WiFi network to transfer photos. You need a strange program from Fujifilm on your computer - find that and install it first. It is called PC Auto Save and there is a version for Windows and Mac (even though the stupid program is called PC, it is for both operating systems). Make sure your computer is connected to a 2.4 GHz wireless network, or plugged into your router (that's critical for the connection). Start up the PC Auto Save program, and run what looks like the help program for connecting a camera (NOT the settings option - go figure on that one), and get to step 2 for manual set up. Now connect the camera to the wireless network (you can use the WPS button - that worked really great for my application; or you can try selecting the network and entering the password - except there are no lower case letters in the password letters). The camera takes an eternity to connect to the wireless network. The whole time a green wireless logo flashes, and then magically the camera says it found a computer program, or (and I was this screen about a hundred times) it can't find a running program. Magically at some point the camera and the computer program will talk - you need to then activate the camera and authorize the software. Read the computer and camera screen carefully. Pressing OK at the wrong time starts the whole process over again.
After spending an incredibly frustrating time getting the camera and computer to talk, I actually got the thing to do what I wanted, transfer photos and movies. I still don't know which of the six different places the camera has something about wireless I use to start the transfer, I seem to stumble on it every time after the fourth try. However, when my MacBook Pro is on, the PC Auto Save program is running (they tucked the program in the upper bar beside Time Machine), and I am connected to my 2.4 GHz wireless network, pictures transfer very nicely and seamlessly to my computer. I did customize the directory. And in a great way, new pictures are placed in folders with a date name. The camera does a great job of only transferring new pictures and video. If you are tech savvy and have patience, the camera can wirelessly transfer pictures and video.
Overall, I'm super impressed by this camera. It does things in a nice way. It takes good pictures. It is rugged. The price point is really good, inexpensive enough that I wouldn't cry if it were lost or broken. And yet not so cheap that it sacrifices quality sensor and optics.
This camera loses a star for one reason: the placement of the video record button is right next to the power button. I have now accidentally recorded videos at least three times while taking going down rapids instead of turning off the camera. Seems like a small issue, but when you're operating while paddling it becomes a problem.
I immediate removed it from water and tried to dry it out. It did not recover.
Just got back from vacation - with no underwater pictures
Will be returning the camera
