Fujifilm FinePix XP50 Preview

 

Say hello to the FinePix XP50, folks. It's the entry-level model in Fujifilm's updated XP-Series of "lifeproof" cameras, underneath the flagship XP150 and the middle child XP100. But don't let the sub-$200 price fool you, the XP50 is almost as fully...

Meh!

 

If price is key - sure, this is a great starter camera that is shockproof, waterproof, freezeproof, dust proof. If you are looking for something that can perform as your primary vacation camera - I'd say keep looking. First, the good points - this does...

Waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, freezeproof

Complicated software, poor performance above water, horrible in low light conditions, with or without flash

A cheap, compact cam for your regular adventure / water sports situations, but quality takes a sharp dive once you bring in the competition in dry conditions

Daughter loves it!!...

 

My daughter is in love with this camera. I gave it to her for her 13th birthday and it's been in the water since. The pictures arn't as nice as my camera, but it works and a lot of fun for my daughter.
