Fujifilm FinePix XP130

Fujifilm is renowned for its amazing X-Trans sensor mirrorless cameras. However, it has history in the compact market with its FinePix range, including the brightly coloured XP130.

Featuring a 1/2.3in 16.4MP BSI sensor, and 5x optical zoom offering an equivalent 28-140mm f/3.9-4.9, it produces solid images. You also get 1080p Full HD video (no 4K video to be found here), 10fps continuous shooting speed and 3in 920k-dot screen, which is relatively high resolution for a tough cam. The ISO runs from 100-3200, working in conjunction with the handy optical image stabilisation for night time shots. The image quality isn’t quite as good as its rivals, but it still does a great job.

The body itself is well designed, maintaining a small form. It’s waterproof down to an exceptional 20m, freeze-proof to -10°C and able to withstand drops from 1.75m. It isn’t quite as robust as others in test, with the Lumix and Olympus offering crush-proof designs, but the price and depth rating may well swing it for you.
