New Fujifilm underwater compact

Fujifilm has announced its latest underwater compact, the Finepix XP130, which is waterproof to 20m, shockproof to 1.75m, freezeproof and dustproof. Local RRP should be somewhere between $320 and 350. (Local info is not yet available.)
It comes with Bluetooth for transfer to smartphones and tablets via what Fujifilm calls ‘easy paring registration’. It has a small-area 16.4 megapixel, back-illuminated CMOS sensor sensor. Lens is 5x zoom starting at 28mm. It weighs just 207g  Video is at Full HD at 60 fps. There is a macro mode down to 9cm.

The LCD is ‘a large’ 3-inches, and 920K resolution. (Note to PR people – you can’t have a ‘large 3-inch’ anything. Three inches is three inches.)

A new Electronic Level assists with composition while an Eye Detection feature helps to capture portraits easily by automatically focusing on the eyes of the subject. The XP130 also has a Cinemagraph mode, which produces still images with moving elements; a time-lapse video; and a bust mode of up to 10 frames per second.

It comes in a range of five colours, but it’s not yet confirmed if each of these are coming to this market
