Group test: Waterproof Compact Cameras

 

It's summer in the northern hemisphere, and no doubt a lot of people reading this will be enjoying the hot weather, planning trips to local beaches and lakes. In our recent group test of compact 'travel zoom' cameras we covered 14 of the most versatile...

The waterproof camera class has matured significantly since our last group test in 2009. Two years on, we are starting to see products that blur the line between regular compact cameras and 'traditional' rugged models even further.

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 Launches Finepix XP30 Weatherproof Camera

 

All kidding aside, this is a solid option for those who are looking for a rugged camera that is still feature rich and takes quality pictures. The 14 megapixel sensor is sure to take brilliant pictures, as well as 720p movies. And undeniably while...

Fuji Finepix XP30

 

The Fuji Finepix XP30 is one of the few waterproof digital cameras equipped with a built-in GPS. It is waterproof down to 5m, shockproof to drops up to 1.5m and freezeproof down to -10C. This tough exterior protects a very accurate GPS system, a...

Extremely durable build quality, Highly Accurate Waterproof GPS, Very reliable metering, Reasonable Automatic White-Balance, Decent quality video

Extreme softness along image borders, Image noise destroys details from ISO 400+, Poor color accuracy, Noticeable optical distortion, Limited exposure range

The Fuji Finepix XP30 is an interesting offering for its price-point. This is by far the cheapest waterproof camera to include a built-in GPS. Its shockproof body is small enough to slip into most pockets. Its rugged freezeproof construction makes it...

Fujifilm FinePix XP30 Digital Camera

 

The rugged Fujifilm FinePix XP30 is a fine choice for outdoor enthusiasts, although it trailed the other sport compacts we tested. We liked the great macro focusing for close-up shots and durable-feeling construction. However, consumer testers faulted...

Fujifilm FinePix XP30

 

The Fujifilm FinePix XP30 is an easy-to-use digital camera that works really well as a point-and-shoot for times when you're on-the-go. It's also rugged to stand life's bumps and bruises, but if you're in the market for a camera to use as your primary...

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.

Fujifilm FinePix XP30 review

 

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