The ultimate compact camera for the most demanding shooting conditions
Introducing the FinePix XP150, redefining new standards for all-weather digital compacts, it is the ultimate camera for anyone who lives for the great outdoors, and wants to be able to document their exploits every step of the way. Whether climbing mountains or diving in oceans the FinePix XP150 has what it takes to deliver high quality stills and movies whatever the shooting conditions.
Built to last
The solid build, rubberised coating and riveted metal handgrip makes this the toughest FinePix yet. Underwater photographers can keep on shooting to depths of 10m with the FinePix XP150, whereas walkers, climbers and mountain bikers will benefit from the camera's increased shock proofing capabilities that mean it can survive a drop from up to 2m. If you like to shoot in the coldest of climates, the FinePix XP150 will keep functioning all the way down to -10°C. Plus dust and sand are no match for the camera either, thanks to its extensive weather seals in all the important places. What's more, the zoom lens comes with a water repellent coating to prevent water droplets spoiling your shots and even the battery/memory cover comes with a new double lock for ultimate protection from the elements. In short, whatever your active lifestyle throws at the FinePix XP150, it'll keep on coming back for more.
The FinePix XP150 features onboard GPS geotagging and photo navigation
Advanced GPS functionality
Thanks to the FinePix XP150's high sensitivity GPS antenna it's now quicker and easier to pinpoint your location, no matter where you are in the world. If you're moving around and taking pictures, the FinePix XP150 will track your movements and show the route on the LCD. Alternatively, just wait until you get to a computer and create a pictorial map of the locations visited using the included MyFinePix Studio software.
The GPS functionality doesn't end there.
