Fujifilm FinePix XP150 – Tougher than ever before

23 March 2012 - With the launch to market of the FinePix XP150, Fujifilm will introduce its most robust camera ever. Water-proof to 10m, freeze-proof to -10C, dust-proof and drop-proof from up to 2m, this camera can handle nearly anything you can throw at it.

It’s got brains to match the brawn too, thanks to the new high sensitivity GPS antenna the FinePix XP150 is now quicker and easier at pinpointing your location and the camera can even track your movements and show the route on the LCD. And with an electronic compass and Photo Navigation functions, the XP150 can show the direction of shooting, altitude as well as direction and distance to a previous location

The FinePix XP150 isn’t just built to take the most extremes of what life can throw at it, it’s also a high quality picture-taking machine that is designed to deliver superb results time after time.

The 14-megapixel CMOS sensor and 5x optical zoom lens provide a focal range of 28-140mm (35mm equivalent) for a wide variety of shots. The camera also offers CMOS sensor shift image stabilisation to reduce camera shake and has a wide ISO range from 100 to 3200. Couple this to a wide range of shooting modes plus continuous shooting at up to an impressive 10fps and you’ll soon realise what a tough customer the FinePix XP150 is.

The FinePix XP150 also allows Full 1080p HD movie capture at 30fps and an underwater movie function to capture life under the waves in superb quality. Watching back on an HD ready TV is simple too, thanks to the micro HDMI connection that allows a quick, simple hook-up for instant reviews.

The FinePix XP150 is available now for £219 in a range of five colours: black, silver, orange, green and blue.
