The FinePix XP60 is the latest addition to Fujifilm's XP range of rugged cameras. Built to withstand the rough and tumble of family life, and building on the success of the XP50, the XP60 offers improved image quality along with a 5x optical zoom and the ability to perform even if it's been dropped, frozen, covered in dust or taken for a swim.
The FinePix XP60 is characterized by high-speed processing, the CMOS sensor empowers continuous shooting at up to 10 frames/sec* (max. 10 frames) or ultra-high-speed continuous shooting at up to 60 frames/sec* (max. 70 frames**) with a dedicated “Burst mode button” which let you instantly switch into continuous shooting mode. Together with Full HD movie, these functions are optimal for moving object like children playing around!
So it offers the ideal solution: a robust camera that takes good quality pictures in some of the most testing circumstances, and offers four different “family-proof” levels of protection. It will deliver crisp, quality images whether you are on land or on the seashore.
At the very core of the XP60 is the camera's 1/2.3-inch 16 million pixels CMOS sensor. With ISO sensitivity up to 6400*4 and CMOS Shift Image Stabilisation, image capture is handled with ease ensuring that sharp, clear pictures are produced, even in challenging low-light conditions. Details in shadow and in bright light can sometimes be lost on cameras with less powerful sensors, but the XP60's CMOS sensor ensures that more beautiful pictures are captured in the dark scene.
The indomitable XP60 features an internal 5x optical FUJINON zoom lens (28-140mm*5), which means that you can zoom right up to the action, even underwater. Blur free pictures are achieved through the CMOS Shift Image Stabilisation which corrects the effects of any slight shake of the hand when depressing the shutter. The technology continues to impress with the added application of Intelligent Digital Zoom. The XP60 combines its 5x optical zoom with Intelligent Digital Zoom which results in double the zoom range (10x) whilst offering optimum image processing to counteract the degradation that has traditionally occurred when digital zooms are used.
Capture high speed action with the XP60's 10fps* continuous shooting mode at full resolution (max. 10 frames). You can also shoot ultra-high speed continuous shooting at up to 60fps* (max. 70 frames**). With a dedicated “Burst mode button” placed on the top of the camera, it's easy to switch to this mode instantly, which means it's always easy to get those important action shots.
The XP60 allows you to make amazing action-packed HD videos to share with friends and family on TV, computers and other large screen devices. With the fast read-out and high speed processing of the CMOS image sensor and processor, the XP60 can record Full 1080i HD movies (60fps). You just need to press the dedicated “Movie recording button” on the back of the camera, and video recording starts quickly and easily. High speed m ovie recording is also available on the XP60 at frame rates of up to 240fps.
Additional features such as Scene Recognition Auto now work when recording videos and a noise cancellation feature ensures you do not record the distracting sound made by the zoom lens when shooting videos. Advanced in-camera movie editing is available including features such as “movie trimming” to edit out unwanted footage and “movie join” to seamlessly pull together multiple video clips into a single movie.
The XP60 has bright and impressive 2.7” LCD monitor which has an anti-reflective coating which makes looking at images and data on the back of the screen really easy and crystal clear, even in bright sunlight. The screen features an automatic brightness adjustment feature which can be optimised to monitor brightness to account for ambient lighting, saving battery power without sacrificing clarity.
You can really get creative by applying the “Advanced Filter” that feature on the XP60. These add artistic effects to your photos which you can preview on the LCD before you take your shot.
The XP60 features a number of advanced features allowing greater creative flexibility. High speed multi-frame processing lets you record two shot or more at different exposures and then combine them to achieve High Dynamic Range (HDR) shots with natural contrast that preserves details in the highlights and shadows. Motion Panorama 360 lets you create a 360° panoramic shot just by selecting the mode & pressing the shutter button and spinning round in a circle. This is simple to use and the effect is superb, particularly for landscape shots. Individual shutter 3D lets you create fun images with a 3D effect by combining two shots taken from slightly different angles.
The XP60 is a well-designed rugged camera with an excellent core specification that will withstand the wear and tear of members of the family of all ages getting their hands on it. Its stylish body is compact enough to keep it in your pocket and it's available in a range of exciting colours: Yellow, Blue, Red, Green and Black.
