We went to Playa del Carmen and needed a camera to take snorkeling. This camera took very clear pictures. The zoom was great too. It showed a lot of details when we put the pictures on the computer. I will be putting some pictures on canvas for gifts. They look professional. The price is worth it. I liked the auto focus and quick focus on moving objects. No blurred pictures while moving in the boat.

Movie issue.

On picture side 4 stars. I tried 2 XP200, both with problems on the movie side. A sort of continuous scratch noise is always on. NO HELP AT ALL FROM FUJI.

Comments about FinePix XP200 Digital Camera (Blue):

This camera is packed with features, although it does have face detection but not smile detection, I bought this for snorkeling, whitewater rafting, hiking, camping and the like, so not a big deal.

I'm not sure why it has complaints on the battery, I have not used the flash much or shot any long video though, so I cant vouch for that situation.

I have not subjected it to high heat yet either, I am a little worried about the 104deg F. top operating temp, I'll see.

Great Camera

By Billf

from NJ

Comments about FinePix XP200 Digital Camera (Yellow):

I had a Pentax WG-3 that turned out not to be waterproof. So I bought the Fuji XP200. It has all the features I could want and so far has not leaked. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Picture quality is excellent for a P-A- S. Not as good as my Canon D5 but I won't take that on my boat. Good bang for the buck.

    Avid outdoors people take notice. this camera does it all and it's rugged. i am a retired pro and it's the only camera i carry. i do a lot of water sports so i need a waterproof camera. i haven't had the heart to intentionally drop it, but i am assured it can withstand a fall. it works well in low light and is easy to use. best part; wifi upload to my fon (droid) and viewing images on fon.

    I am very satisfied with this purchase.
    On my vacation to Miami I use it in the beach, and the underwater pictures I took were amazing.
    The lens did not get foggy, and the battery life is great.

    Comments about FinePix XP200 Digital Camera (Yellow):

    this camera goes everywhere with me, in and out of the water, in rain or sunshine. it's led screen is bright and easy to see in the the florida sun. the auto function has never failed to take a great picture not one blurred ever. i shoot a lot of macro shots and between the zoom and led assist lamp i have not missed a single one. poisonous snakes up close safe and easy, treefrogs in the rain, no problem. this camera will go with me collecting tropical fish in the peruvian amazon this summer and no doubt will take some incredible pictures.

      It's small and lightweight. The video is great with smooth/fast auto-focusing. Picture quality is good. I took it on our recent Spring Break snow skiing trip. It survived a couple of falls I had while I was holding it in my hand videoing my family skiing down the mountain. I never used up the battery even though I took over 100 photos and several 1-5 minute videos per day on the ski slopes.

      Excellent camera for the price. Great durability, water resistance, shock proof, strong, and takes clear high pixelated pictures. Always had Kodaks in past, first Fuji, may be a Fuji user from here on out. Highly recommended.

      Rugged camera for the money!

      By Scubakrum

      from Kutztown, Pa

      Comments about FinePix XP200 Digital Camera (Yellow):

      Camera seems to work great! Lots of options as far as different modes etc. I bought this camera so I would have a waterproof camera to take to the beach,diving and snorkeling, without having to lug my Canon G15 and the housing with me all the time. So far quality seems to be good and images are well balanced color wise . Easy to use and maintain.

      Great camera

      By Albee

      from Los Angeles

      Comments about FinePix XP200 Digital Camera (Black):

      I was surprised at how solid this camera was. I expected a cheap plastic almost disposable type product. It's heavy!!! I check out all the possible features, low light, night shots, macro, video, how well it zooms and shows. The funny feature that really had my interest was the wifi. I can download all my shots directly to my iPad or iPhone. No more waiting to get to a desk top to see pics. I can see what's shot and edit in the field. That's probably my favorite feature. Best buy in years. Well done.

        Took it out the other night in the rain with no worries. Taking it to mexico to an all inclusive where my future wife and i will most likely beat it up. Starts up quick, colour rendition is that great fuji standard, buttons are well laid out and menus are easy to access, plus it looks a thousand times better than the other waterproof cameras.

          Comments about FinePix XP200 Digital Camera (Red):

          overall a very durable camera. Will withstand most bumps and bruises. Truly a water proof camera. Picture quality I give 8-10. Used the "automatic" mode and noticed a slight imperfection in quality. This thing has more settings and picture modes than any camera i've used so far. Maybe playing with the different settings will yield a better quality shot. Overall if your an outdoor junky this is the camera for you. Whether your on land or under water it will capture the moment. The wifi feature is pretty slick i might add. no more plugging the camera in to your pc to upload pictures. simply download the app on your phone and send your pics via the on board wireless setup. Do yourself a favor and buy one.

            We have used the camera underwater in salt and fresh water, on the beach in blowing sand, and in less demanding conditions.

            The camera has taken great photos in all conditions. The auto scene recognition does a great job for conditions that are not underwater. You must select for underwater since it can not automatically select for that mode.

            I have not found anything that I would say is not so great about this camera.
