About this deal

We've been using a full production version of this 120 fps sports camera, to see what you gain (and, perhaps, lose). The shot above shows how much you can blur the background if you get pretty close to the subject and the automatic exposure chooses f3. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography. Users need to download the free “FUJIFILM Camera Remote” app to their smartphone or tablet device to easily transfer photos and videos.

Squeeze the on/of button and the rear LCD blinks into life in a second or so, which is a respectable showing for this class of camera. As you can see, the action at this low frame rate is far from smooth so if you plan to shoot moving subjects, and with video that’s pretty much a given, you’ll get much better results with one of the 1080p modes. the Fujifilm FinePix XP140's flash produces noticeable vignetting with the lens at maximum wide angle, though fall-off is much less severe when you use longer focal lengths.

A rotating lock mechanism on the battery and memory card door should ensure that no water gets into the only point of entry, and it feels nicely secure. It can struggle to focus on close-up subjects and low-light performance isn't great, but landscapes and portraits offer punchy colours and good skin tones.

The Fujifilm FinePix XP140 is a water, freeze, shock and dust proof compact camera with a 5x zoom lens, 16. There is no need to worry about water, sand or dropping the camera, making it the perfect first camera for children as well. A thumbprint-like array of nine raised nodules on the camera back provides somewhere for the thumb to rest, while a slim rubberized wedge on the faceplate provides purchase for a couple of fingertips, leaving the forefinger of the right hand to hover over the large, roughened surface of the shutter release button – said surface helpfully avoiding the likelihood of slippage if operating the camera with wet hands. With a lockable wheel protecting the SD media card compartment shared with a battery compartment at the Fuji XP140's side from any unwanted ingress from dust, dirt or water, an on-screen message prompts the user to check that this is securely closed before use.Intuitiveness and user friendliness is key to an action camera of any description, of course, as you want to spend less time fussing over settings and more time watching what you're doing. So, in offering a responsive performance, decent images, intuitive use, plus good value for money, if you don't need a bunch of bells and whistles or 4K shooting at a more 'standard' 30fps, and just want something that can take pictures in otherwise challenging conditions for a regular camera or smartphone, the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 comes up trumps as one of the better toughened options out there right now for the cash-strapped. Although the Fuji XP140 offers up to 4K-video capture, the highest frame rate in this setting is a modest 15fps. I was hoping to get tough camera and XP140 was my choice, but can not find it in UK and Germany, do anyone have idea is it available in Europe? The Ricoh WG-6 also offers a new 20 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, 5x zoom lens, 3-inch LCD screen, 4K movie recording and built-in macro lights.

The Fujifilm FinePix XP140's 5x zoom lens achieves a maximum wide-angle focal length equivalent to 28mm, and can zoom in to 140mm (in 35mm-camera terms). Battery life - Battery life is rated at 240 shots in auto mode, which is average for a camera of this spec.The XP140 also upgrades its predecessor’s low resolution slow motion video modes to 720p HD resolution. It can now go even deeper than before, to an impressive 25 metres, while other improvements include a new scene recognition mode, which should make it better able to assess what it’s photographing, and 4K video recording (albeit at 15fps). Everything is very ergonomic although those with larger hands may find the buttons fiddly, especially zoom in/out buttons. megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 produces fantastic photos even in low light. The Fujifilm FinePix XP140 has seven sensitivity settings ranging from ISO 100 to 6400 at full resolution.

As noted earlier, its manufacturer claims the grip – as subtle as it is – on the Fuji XP140 has been 'improved' over its predecessor. To access this you need to depress the button in the middle of the gripped wheel and turn it to minimise the chances of accidental opening while the camera is wet. Apart from these key features, the main specs are the same as the previous model - there's a 16 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, a wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens equivalent to 28-140mm in 35mm terms, and there is optical image stabilisation built-in, which moves the CMOS sensor to counter camera shake. It’s big enough and detailed, but not very bright and I had a real job seeing it in bright sunlight.The XP140 specifications say that’s reduced to a maximum 6 frames at 10fps, however I managed an 8-frame burst which you can see above. The latest camera in the XP series features a new processor, updated design and an improved durability while maintaining a compact and lightweight body with a variety of automatic shooting functions. Shock of the “MIL Standard”, a standard stipulating the durability of supplies procured by the American military, set by the United States Department of Defense. To find out more about that and the Finepix XP140’s other features; and to see how it measures up against the pricier Olympus TOUGH TG-6 and the cheaper Nikon COOLPIX W150 – both in and out of the water – read on!
