Fujifilm has announced the new Fujifilm XP70, joining a growing collection of tough XP series cameras.
The XP70 is Fujifilm’s latest-generation all-weather compact. Waterproof to 10 metres, it can operate in temperatures as low as -10 degrees as well as being able to withstand a drop of 1.5m. It’s also dustproof to prevent dust and sand encroaching on the optics and electronics.
There’s a 5x optical zoom lens with a 28mm wide-angle setting, while the camera’s Optical Image Stablisation function ensures that any effects from camera shake are minimised.
The XP70 features 10 Advanced Filter functions, while multi-frame processing is used to capture two or more shots for a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image that preserves detail in both shadows and highlights.
Finally, the Motion Panorama 360° function offers the chance to capture superb panoramic shots at the touch of a button. Not only that, but there’s also wireless connectivity for instant image and movie sharing.
As the XP70 is likely to be used in bright, sunny conditions, an anti-reflective coating is applied to the rear LCD so it’s easy to compose images. The 16.4MP sensor combined with a powerful processor sees the XP70 capable of capturing shots at 10fps, as well as shooting at 60fps at a reduced 2MP resolution.
Priced at £169, the XP70 will be available from February.
