Fujifilm FinePix XP30

 

This affordable rugged compact doesn't set records for image quality but is a great companion for your outdoor frolics, whatever the weather.

Waterproof, dustproof and shockproof, Cheaper than many tough alternatives, Onboard GPS, Very compact design

Mediocre image quality, Particularly poor high ISO performance, GPS drains battery quickly

Fujifilm FinePix XP30

 

It seems it's not enough these days for a digital compact “just” to be able to withstand a fumbled drop onto the pavement, a dip in the ocean, a spell in the deep freeze, or having sand kicked in its, um, fascia. Considering that with a manufacturer's...

Bargain basement price yet rugged build and latest must have of GPS included

Plastic-y rear buttons, soft images due to camera shake, aversion to water

Considering that with a manufacturer’s asking price a penny shy of £200 the XP30 can be picked up for a bargain £150, this has “active young family camera” written all over it.

A handsome little camera that's built to withstand water, impacts and cold. Sadly, image quality is astonishingly bad.

Fujifilm FinePix XP30 : Fujifilm's new tough compact with GPS

Considering the great price, top feature set including onboard GPS and excellent build quality, you can forgive the sometimes lacklustre image quality

FujiFilm - XP30

 

Although it's water, dust and shock proof, FujiFilm's rather rugged XP30 compact digital camera isn't aimed at the bomb-proof ‘travel camera' market. Instead, it's designed to protect itself from clumsy family members - including, but not ...

Protecting precious pictures seems like a logical idea to us - trouble is, we're not convinced that the XP30's pictures are all that precious. Nicely priced and better designed than some of its chunkier (and pricier) competitors, we can't help...

Fujifilm Finepix XP30

 

The Fujifilm XP30 offers a very attractive design with rounded edges and smooth lines, but don't let this fool you – it will shrug off an impact from 1.5m and will operate in temperatures as low as -100C. Waterproofing covers depths of up to 5m, which...

Review: Fujifilm FinePix XP30

 

This shockproof, waterproof, GPS-equipped shooter looks great on paper, but it's an unfortunate klutz in the field.

Waterproof, shock-proof, and dust-proof, the XP30 is equally at home in Aruba or Fallujah. Included GPS lets you plot out your pictures on a map. It’s relatively inexpensive

Default “Scene Recognition” mode exhibits all the good judgment of a drunken sailor. Just about everything from focusing to deleting pictures locking in on GPS satellites was painstakingly slow. Videos were ruined by their audio, which included cracks...

Fujifilm FinePix XP30 Review

 

The Fujifilm FinePix XP30 is the world's first water, shock, dust and freeze proof camera to feature built-in GPS. Replacing the XP10 model, the FinePix XP30 is waterproof up to 16.5 feet / 5m, shockproof up to 5 feet / 1.5m, freezeproof down to 14°F /...

For the family in need of a camera to be used in a variety of situations from birthdays to days out and holidays, on the surface, the Fujifilm FinePix XP30 looks perfect with its impressive line-up of features and quality of construction. The build...

Fujifilm FinePix XP30

 

If you're looking for adventure in the compact camera arena, this one is particularly rugged being both waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof. But how does it stack up against tough compact competitors?

Waterproof, dustproof and shockproof; Cheaper than many tough alternatives; Onboard GPS; Very compact design

Mediocre image quality; Particularly poor high ISO performance; GPS drains battery quickly
