Fujifilm announces the FinePix XP140, its latest ruggedized point-and-shoot | | Digital Photo Help
Fujifilm has announced the impending release of the FinePix XP140, its latest rugged point-and-shoot that adds new automated features and improved durability against the elements. The compact camera is waterproof to 25m / 82ft, shockproof up to 1.75m / 5.9ft, freeze-proof to 10°C / 14ºF and dustproof. Compared to its predecessor, the XP130, this is an improved waterproof depth of 5m / 17ft, with all of the other stats staying more or less the same. The XP140 also includes a more pronounced grip for better handling in rough environments. At the heart of the XP140 is the 16.4 megapixel 1/2.3-inch backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor with a maximum sensitivity of ISO 12800, a stop higher than the XP130. In front of the sensor is an optically stabilized Fujinon 5x optical zoom lens that starts at 28mm (35mm equivalent). With Fujifilm's Digital Zoom technology, the camera reaches 10x zoom.
