  • The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a good all round compact camera, which is ideal if you’re the type of person who likes to go on adventure holidays - or, alternatively if you’re just looking for something which will be able to withstand average family life.
    Although picture quality may not be quite as high as some cameras without such rugged credentials, for a holiday or family camera, it’s still pretty good and you should be pleased with what it can produce.

    The FinePix XP80 from Fujifilm is a nice point-n-shoot camera that will work well for the beginning photographer seeking waterproof capabilities in a simplistic model. This camera's images are surprisingly sharp for such a basic camera with a small image sensor. Another pleasing surprise is that the XP80 has very little shutter lag when the lighting conditions are good. However, color representation and exposure are a little off with the XP80.


  • The Fujfilm XP80 offers affordable durability in a compact package.
    ISO 6400 (reduced file size). The Fujifilm XP80 is excellent for shooting right in the middle of the action. The 10 fps burst speed is among the best for the category. The video capabilities and wide range of mounting options makes it a good choice for mounting on a bike, surfboard, or whatever else you can imagine. It's not a good option for shooting indoors, however.


  • The S1 is hardly the perfect super-zoom camera, but it definitely is in the top of the 2014 class. In fact, its positives outweigh the negatives by a wide margin, so we’ll easily give it Recommended status. The fact it costs around $500 and is the only weather-resistant mega-zoom makes it even more appealing. Just don’t expect DSLR performance.


  • We tested the Fuji S1 after we'd been using the £1,000+ Fujifilm X-T1, which also offers 16 megapixel resolution, yet with the advantage of a much larger APS-C sized sensor.


  • The only weather-resistant 50x megazoom camera around, the Fujifilm FinePix S1 is a fast, flexible camera that comes up a little short in low-light photo quality.


  • The Fujifilm FinePix XP70 may cost as little has half the price of some tough compact cameras, but it’s far from half the camera. Its 10-metre waterproof rating can’t quite match the subaquatic abilities of cameras like the Nikon AW120 or Ricoh WG-4, but if you’re only likely to photograph a spot of snorkelling, that’s hardly a deal-breaker.

    The new Fujifilm X-T1 is the best X-series camera to date, and one of the best interchangeable lens cameras, mirrorless or otherwise, that we've ever had the pleasure of reviewing.
    The X-T1 quickly and efficiently delivers outstanding image quality with the minimum of fuss, with its myriad of external controls and customisable buttons proving to be inspired rather than confusing. Being able to quickly and intuitively use mechanical dials to set the main exposure parameters is a veritable joy.

    Fuji's new top-of-the-line mirrorless camera is packed with functionality, aiming to smash through the shortcomings of i's popular but imperfect X series line. The X-T1 has plenty of power, but can't help tripping over its own feet.


  • Of all of the tough cams we've seen this year, the XP200 was the least desirable. Even though it rings in at under $300, you're a stone's throw (roughly $75) away from the best all-round tough cam, the Olympus TG-2. Your $75 nets you much better image quality, great autofocus, a fast f/2.0 lens, and even options for adding filters and a tele or fisheye converter lens. It's a great package and it takes good photos for a point-and-shoot and excellent photos for a tough cam.


  • Why not just use your phone? There are waterproof ones after all. Well, it all boils down to image quality. If you're going on a journey of a lifetime, a camera phone won't give you the image quality you need in all photographic situations. The flash won't be as intelligent and the dynamic range will be much more limited. For those reasons alone, you should look at a camera like the Fujifilm FinePix XP200.


  • The Fujifilm FinePix XP200 is very tough, with a rating of 2 metres shock proof, as well as waterproof down to 15 metres, making it one of the tougher waterproof cameras available. The Fujifilm FinePix XP200 is good value for money, with lots of features including 60fps full HD video with optical image stabilisation, although we would have preferred to see better image quality from the camera.
