fujifilm xp130

Fujifilm has officially announced the new FinePix XP130 Waterproof, Shockproof, Freezeproof, Dustproof compact camera. The US price for this camera is $229.00, now available for pre-order at B&H Photo.

Tough and Rugged Design
The XP130 is characterized by its durable, weather-proof design to enables its use in harsh conditions:

  • Waterproof to 65.6′ / 20m
  • Shockproof from 5.8′ / 1.8m
  • Freeze-proof to 14°F / -10°C
  • Dustproof
16.4MP CMOS Sensor
Featuring a 16.4MP CMOS sensor, the XP130 can produce high-resolution still images and Full HD 1080p videos at 60 fps, and the sensor’s back-illuminated design maintains a smooth image quality with low noise when working in low-light conditions.
Fujinon 5x Optical Zoom Lens
The built-in Fujinon zoom lens covers a wide-angle to telephoto 28-140mm equivalent focal length range to suit working in a broad array of shooting conditions. This 5x optical zoom can be effectively doubled, to 10x, using Intelligent Digital Zoom, and optical image stabilization balances this reach by minimizing the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.
Built-In Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Connectivity
Built-in Bluetooth LE (low energy) allows you to automatically and quickly transfer your imagery directly to a smartphone or tablet for sharing. This connectivity affords easy pairing between devices and can also be used for geotagging your imagery by embedding your device’s time and location data within each file. Additionally, Wi-Fi can also be used for image transferring and enables remote shooting and camera control from your linked mobile device via the Fujifilm Camera Remote app.
