My friends use older FujiFilm XP waterproof cameras on the lake and in the river with great success, and the XP200 came highly recommended. However, my impression is that the XP200 is a great all-around digital camera that happens to be waterproof/shockproof. The XP200 also turns on almost instantly, so it is handy for those sudden situations on the water.
The 16MP sensor takes rather good pictures! The 5x optical zoom is impressive, as there are no mechanical lenses that move around. There are multiple features like 3D, HDR, and panaromic shots. However, the 3D and panaromic features aren't as quite refined as I'd like. The panorama feature isn't nearly as good as the feature on my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone.
The XP200 takes true HD video, but the odd thing is that it only does 1920x1080 at 60 frames per second, and a 32GB SDHC card only allows about 23 minutes of footage. That's roughly 190 Mbps in the Quicktime .MOV format, whereas a GoPro or Sony Action Cam or even my Samsung Galaxy S3 would take 1920x1080 at 30 fps in roughly 20-30 Mbps in AVHCD MP4 format.
The thing I really did not like is the fact it uses a proprietary USB cable. It is about the same size as micro-USB, which has almost become a standard among mobile electronics manufactured in 2010 and beyond. However, it happens to be specific to the XP200. I don't like this because I already keep a bunch of AC adapters on a power strip and they each have an assortment of micro-USB and mini-USB cables. Now I have to keep track of a proprietary USB cable designed for the XP200.
The photos have good overall clarity. They are not going to be professional grade, but would be great for Facebook posts, sharing, and even scrap books.
The video quality is quite good, about on-par with my Samsung Galaxy S3 which both blow the GoPro Hero3 out of the water. Here are the specs on the videos that the XP200 produces in comparison to the other devices:
1920x1080P at 30 fps unless otherwise specified
59.94 fps, AVCHD, Main Profile, Level 4.1, 2 reference frames, 18.7 Mbps data rate
Samsung Galaxy S3 (4.1.2)
AVCHD, High Profile, Level 4.0, 1 reference frame, 17 Mbps data rate
GoPro Hero 3 Silver
AVCHD, Main Profile, Level 4.1, 4 reference frames, 30.2 Mbps data rate
Sony HDR-AS10 Firmware 1.03
MPEG-4 Sony PSP, AVCHD, Main Profile, Level 4.0, 2 reference frames, 16.0 Mbps data rate
Sony HDR-AS10 Firmware 2.00
59.94 fps, MPEG-4 Sony PSP, AVCHD, Main Profile, Level 4.2, 2 reference frames, 25 Mbps data rate
Overall: 4.5/5 stars. It would be 5/5 stars if it used a standard micro-USB cable. Everything else about the camera is really good! The waterproofness and shock protection is just icing on the cake.
Physical aspects of the camera aside, the next question comes down to image quality and video capabilities. There is some disappointment with IQ, enough so that I considered returning it, but fortunately it can be dealt with. At ISOs over 400, image quality deteriorates very quickly - more so than any Fuji camera I have ever used. So if you plan on walking around a museum with this than you probably pass and you should probably be looking at a different camera all together. This camera is meant for outdoors with decent light and if you are looking for a waterproof camera that’s where it will be used most of the time. The way to turn the image quality from unacceptable to good, is to simply put the camera in "program" mode, set a max ISO of 400, set the exposure comp down 1 notch and set the image size to medium. With these settings the camera does fairly well in most conditions, even at 100% crop. You can even take decent indoor pictures thanks to a fairly strong flash and excellent image stabilization system that you can actually feel working in the camera. Video quality is pretty good as well, but dynamic range could be a bit better. I know I gave a few caveats and that’s why I say 3 stars may be generous, but price, build quality and IQ with the settings I suggest certainly make this camera worth more than 3 stars. Hope this is helpful.
