FUJIFILM Reveals New FinePix XP140 Rugged Camera

FUJIFILM has announced the latest addition to its XP Series. The new FinePix XP140 has been designed with adventure in mind, offering a very durable and rugged construction.

Weighing just 7.3oz, the FinePix XP140 offers a compact and light design, along with a waterproof (to 82 feet), shockproof (up to 5.9ft), freeze-proof (to 14°F), and dustproof form factor - making it an ideal choice for use during out-door activities. Under the hood, the camera features a 16.4 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and a FUJINON 5x optical zoom lens. In addition, the device includes an optical image stabilization mechanism and support for an output sensitivity as high as ISO12800 for low-light capture.

Likewise, the unit offers several automated functions for better ease-of-use, including a "Scene Recognition Auto" mode to determine the main subject in a scene and then automatically optimize the camera setting, and an "Eye Detection" feature to automatically focus on a subject's eyes. 17 "Advanced Filter" variations are also implemented, including "Rich & Fine" and "Monochrome (NIR)".

Finally, the camera also supports Bluetooth wireless connectivity for transferring images to a mobile device, along with remote shooting capabilities via the free "FUJIFILM Camera Remote" app for iOS and Android products.

The FUJIFILM FinePix XP140 is set to launch in March 2019 for a suggested retail price of $229.95. Models will be available in yellow or sky-blue in the US, and sky blue, lime, yellow, white, and dark silver in Canada.
