Fujifilm FinePix XP90 Preview
In an era where many point-and-shoot digicam customers opt for an smartphone-only approach to photography, there's one type of affordable camera every family still needs. Lifeproof (or tough) cameras are great for outdoor activities and travel / vacation. They offer Go-Pro style toughness while adding in luxuries like larger image sensors and optical images sensors.
Fujifilm's new-for-2016 Lifeproof camera is the FinePix XP90. Waterproof down to 50ft / 15m, shockproof from 5.8ft / 1.75m fall, freezeproof to 14°F / -10°C and dustproof, it boasts a 16.4MP CMOS image sensor and 5x optical zoom lens (28-140mm equivalent). It can easily record Full 1080p HD videos at up to 60 frames-per-second, or up to 480 fps in Slow Motion mode (at a lower resolution). Optical image stabilization helps with low light stills as well as hand-held movie shooting. Its 3.0" LCD display features an antireflective coating to help see the screen in bright sunlight and underwater. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to connect the camera to smartphones and tablets. And there are a lot of fun filters and modes to help diversify your images and videos --- HDR Capture helps you record images with deeper colors, darker shadows, and brighter whites, while Motion Panorama 360 helps you capture everything from epic vista to interior rooms.
