In addition to GPS and its rugged build quality, the FinePix XP30 digital camera also features a 14.2 megapixel high resolution sensor with an impressive 5x wide angle optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation to shoot sharp image quality in any condition. With a FinePix XP30 in their rucksack, outdoor photographers will be able take their pictures to new heights without the steep price tag!

    Pin-point your location, anywhere in the world

    An increasing number of compact cameras feature GPS tagging, but only the FinePix XP30 features this type of functionality in a rugged, outdoor model. What's more, the GPS features on the camera won't only tell you where you are in the world; it offers additional functions that are essential for outdoor shooting and will make you wonder how you ever managed without them.

    Map your route.

    Locations can be displayed either as longitude and latitude or by place name. The FinePix XP30 has an embedded list featuring around half a million places of interest across the globe. When a shot is taken, the image is tagged with location information, enabling you to quickly find shots of a place you've visited. Should users then want to create a photobook of a specific location they can do so using the Photobook Assist function where you can tag images then turn the pages of the book on the camera’s rear LCD.

    But that's not all. If you visit a location that you want to return to but can't remember which way to go, the Photo Navigation mode is invaluable. Simply find a shot of the location and the FinePix XP30 will not only tell you how far it is from your current spot, it'll show you the direction you need to travel to get there.

    For those who want to re-trace their steps and map a route of their travels, the Route Logging function is sure to appeal. The FinePix XP30 stores location data every 10 minutes* and, once the images are downloaded to a PC through MyFinePix Studio (bundled image viewing software), a map of the route, along with the pictures you took along the way is created using Google Maps.

    * Anytime On or Only Power On must be selected for data to be logged.

    Quality optics deliver perfect pictures

    Take great photos wherever in the world you are.

    Sporting a Fujinon 5x wide optical zoom covering 28-140mm (35mm equivalent), the FinePix XP30 is well equipped to deliver high quality images. In addition to the fine optical quality, the XP30 features Fuji's advanced optical Image Stabilisation system to help combat camera shake. Pictures can be taken and still be blur-free, making it ideal for underwater and night-time shooting.

    A wide range of functions for every shot you take

    As well as offering all the benefits of an outdoor camera, the FinePix XP30 is also a great picture-taking machine in its own right. It boasts a full range of flash overrides, face detection for perfect portraits and a healthy selection of subject-based scene modes, which includes Motion Panorama which automatically stitches up to three shots to create a panoramic picture. There's even a number of in-camera retouching functions including crop, rotate and red-eye removal. Outdoor photographers wanting to shoot video aren't neglected either; the FinePix XP30 offers HD movie capture of 720p at 30 frames per second or conventional 640 x 480 pixel definition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great family camera 25 April 2011
By Jon
Colour Name:Silver
I would highly recommend this camera to parents with young kids. We took our new camera to the beach this weekend and it was great fun for all of us. We were able to let the kids loose with the camera without needing to supervise too closely. And they loved being able to take it into the sea, and take photos on the beach of their sandcastles.
The photos they took were not bad at all. And the camera did get quite a battering, yet worked perfectly.
Really would recommend for family holidays.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice camera but not waterproof 26 Jun 2011
By Smiffy
Colour Name:Blue
I bought this camera for my snorkelling holiday in the Med as it claimed to be waterproof to 5m.
To try to be fair to this camera, I'm listing what I thing the strengths & weaknesses of the camera are:-

1. Brand name
Fujifilm - I've owned their cameras before & always liked them
2. Shooting Modes
Good range of settings for the pictures (see comments later)
3. Large LCD screen
Nice & big for the size of camera
4. Separate video & still photography buttons.
What a brilliant idea! Why doesn't everybody do this?!?
5. Panorama setting.
Allows you to take a panoramic picture. Very slick! Very easy to use. Liked this a lot.
6. Picture & video quality
Picture & video quality were very good.

1. Waterproof.
Ha ha ha ha ha. Maybe someone else's one is, but mine filled up with water at less than 100mm depth. I tried this over a number of days & decided with a little effort I could get it to stay moderately watertight to a depth of about 2 metres for about 30 minutes. The good news is that I managed to dry the unit out each day & reuse it.
Long term, this will be a problem with the innards corroding, especially if used in the sea.
(I suppose the good news is that the water hasn't yet penetrated the optics... does that constitute good news..?? )
2. Battery.
This can go into the camera the wrong way.... yet you can't put it into the charger the wrong way around. Fortunately, no damage seems to have occurred but really that's a bit of a fundamental design flaw. I haven't had that problem with a camera for many years.
3. Lens position.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent travel camera 4 Jun 2011
By Pete V
Colour Name:Blue
I am not a professional photographer but have been a keen amateur for some 40 years and have some considerable depth of knowledge of photography. I currently have 2 very expensive DSLR cameras, two expensive video cameras and two other digital pocket cameras. In the past I had my own developing studio.

However I bought this camera, the Fuji Finepix XP30, especially to take on a Mediterranean cruise on the specifications it offered. I was not disappointed. Yes the battery life is limited and yes it did take some time for the GPS to lock but that happens with most GPS systems if you take them from distant place to distant place.

I did find the camera very easy to carry and very easy to use. The operating system is standard for all recent cameras (my wife has a Finepix 2960 and the functions and OS are exactly the same). There are a multitude of modes and switching from one to the other is very easy.

I took the precaution of purchasing a second battery and I recharged each battery every night. However, I only ever used one battery per day: there was then absolutely no problem and I didn't have to change batteries even during the extensive days when I had the GPS permanently on.

Pictures are pretty good but with a small lens necessary with a small pocket camera the resolution is never ever going to be the same as a top end DSLR. In low light with a high ASA/ISO settings the results were a bit grainy but see the previous sentence.

The camera is well built and feels very substantial for a relatively small item. I took photographs in the sea and they were just fine too.

As far as the lack of lens cover and "dust on the lens" referred to by other reviewers......well just keep the lens clean!! That's not difficult.

I think this a a great little camera. Perfect for holidays. Actually, from now, it will be with me all the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only the GPS lets it down 26 Jun 2011
Colour Name:Blue
Works well for me. Controls are clear and straightforward. Shutter release seems quick. I love not having to worry about rain on the camera and got I it thoroughly soaked on a canoeing trip in Scotland with no ill effects.
The GPS however, is so slow and uses so much battery as to be pretty pointless. Don't think I'll be using it again. The advertised GPS tracking feature seems to be incompatible with the latest version of Fuji's Mac software, so that's no use either.
In summary - DON'T buy it for the GPS. Otherwise pretty good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rugged, tough little camera 25 May 2011
By David M
Colour Name:Blue
I bought an XP30 because I wanted a camera I could take out and not have to worry about breaking it. (It's first excursion was a stag weekend in France!). On this requirement it was really good. A few 'test shots' from inside various pints of lager proved it was certainly waterproof to the depth of a few inches - although I didn't test it in the sea.

I was pretty happy with the photos it took, although the images definitely looked better on my PC than they did on the LCD. The only real downside I thought was the speed; the start up time was a little bit sluggish which meant I needed to keep the camera on in case a photo moment arose quickly.

It's easy to use, small enough to fit comfortably in your pocket, rugged enough to take a knock or two - an ideal camera for someone who gets through more cameras because of lack or care rather than wanting to stay up to date with the latest product!
