Fujifilm FinePix XP60 Digital Camera Review

The Fujifilm FinePix XP60 is an excellent choice if you are looking for something a little more upmarket than your current camera without the need to break the bank in order to purchase it. Very reasonably priced at less than $170, this piece of kit offers a great selection of features for the aspirational photographer.

One of the most popular features of this particular camera is the full HD movie recording function. Whilst many cameras yield the video recording ability, those with HD potential at 1920 x 1080p generally cost quite a lot more than this one. Another reason this camera is selling so well at the moment is the fact that it is waterproof to 20ft., shockproof to 5ft., freeze proof to 14 degrees along with dust and sand proof. This makes it entirely possible to take photos almost anywhere you choose – ideal for holiday makers looking for great quality photos.

The Fujifilm FinePix XP60 also brings with it a 5 x optical zoom lens with approximately 2 x digital zoom. There are also 16.4 million effective pixels and a 2.7” TFT colour LCD monitor display that allows you to see all photographs as soon as they have been taken.

This camera has generated some excellent customer reviews and remains incredibly popular. However, there are a couple of issues that have come to light. Several users have mentioned that the LCD screen struggles slightly in low lit situations and that it can be difficult to see underwater. There have also been complaints regarding charging issues, however this does seem to be in a very limited number of cases.

If you are looking for a good quality camera with some great features, this is most definitely a great choice. However, if you are planning on taking a lot of photographs indoors or in badly lit areas, you may be better suited to a different model. Take a look at some of the reviews available on Amazon and other websites selling this product and weigh up the pros and cons of this camera according to your individual needs and specific requirements. On the whole, the Fujifilm FinePix XP60 is designed to meet the needs of all holiday makers and amateur photographers, so should be just what you need.
