The Fujifilm FinePix XP100 is one of three new "lifeproof" cameras in the company's XP-Series, taking its place between the flagship XP150 and the economical XP50. In terms of performance and features, the FinePix XP100 matches the XP150 in almost every way -- including being waterproof down to 33ft (10M), shockproof to 6.5ft (2M), freezeproof to 14 degrees F (-10 degrees C), and dustproof -- and costs $30 less. The only real drawback here would be for someone looking for GPS capabilities; the XP100 has none.

However, all three of Fujifilm's new XP Series cameras now include a high performance 14 Megapixel CMOS sensor, a FUJINON 5x wide angle optical zoom lens (28-140mm) with a water repellent coating, and an all new, high-contrast 2.7" LCD to help see what you're shooting in bright sunlight or underwater.

All three cameras also feature full 1080p HD movie recording modes, 10 frames-per-second burst shooting capabilities in full resolution, and a newly redesigned double locking door to keep all the electronics housed in the rugged, metal uni-body chassis safe from whatever elements you may throw their way. To help with capturing crisp images and smooth video during any adventure, Fujifilm has included sensor shift Dual Image Stabilization (CIS) system as well as in-camera movie editing, Motion Panorama Mode, Face Detection and Automatic Red-eye removal.

When compared to the XP50, the XP100 costs $50 more, but features a longer-lasting Li-ion Rechargeable battery (330 shots vs. 220 shots) and  upgraded waterproof and shockproof ratings (33ft vs. 16.5ft and 6.5ft vs. 5ft, respectfully). Both the XP100 and XP50 are available in a wider range of colors than the XP150 (only black and orange).
