Valhalla, NY—Fujifilm North America Corp.’s latest addition to its rugged XP series, the FinePix XP60, has an improved 16MP CMOS sensor and reinforced 5x Fujinon lens. The durable camera is waterproof to 20 feet, shockproof enough to withstand a fall of 5 feet, freezeproof to 14° F and dustproof. A newly redesigned battery door lock has double seals for enhanced protection.
“The new XP60 is the perfect outdoor digital camera for users who want to take great images every place that they go, whether it’s the beach, the park or the slopes, the XP60 can stand up to water, ice, drops and dust and get those adventurous pictures,” said David Troy, director, Marketing, Digital Cameras, Electronic Imaging, Fujifilm North America Corporation. “And it’s truly designed for action with dedicated buttons for burst shooting mode and Full HD movie recording, as well as a traditional shutter button.”
The FinePix XP60 uses an improved 1/2.3-inch 16MP CMOS sensor with CMOS shift image stabilization to capture images that are sharp and clear, even in low light. It also incorporates an internal 5x optical Fujinon zoom lens (28–140mm) that allows users to get close to the action, even under water. And with its intelligent digital zoom, the XP60 is said to double its zoom range to 10x while still offering image quality.
For capturing fast action, there’s a dedicated burst mode button on the top of the camera that lets users access two high-speed modes: 10-fps continuous shooting mode at full resolution (max 10 frames); and ultra-high-speed continuous shooting at 60 fps (70 frames in 16:9).
HD video capabilities include Full HD 1080i (60 fps) movie capture as well as high-speed movie recording at 240 fps. And the XP60 offers in-camera movie editing, such as movie join, which pulls together multiple video clips into a single movie.
Other features include: a 2.7-inch antireflective LCD with automatic brightness adjustment; a filter option that includes toy camera to add vignetting for a 70’s retro look, miniature to blur top and bottom sections for a tilt-and-shift effect, partial color that selects one color and takes the rest of the shot in black and white, soft focus effect, high key to increase overall brightness and reduces contrast, and cross screen to add starbursts around bright objects; high-speed multi-frame processing that record two shots or more at different exposures and combines into one high dynamic range (HDR) shot with details in the highlights and shadows; motion panorama 360 shooting; and individual shutter 3D, which creates a 3D effect by combining two shots taken from slightly different angles.
The Fujifilm FinePix XP60 will be available in March 2013 at the price of $199.95. It will come in a choice of yellow, blue, red and green. fujifilmusa.com
