Fujifilm XP200 revealed with ultra-compact hardcore capabilities

With the Fuji XP200 you’ll be blasting forth with so much ruggedness in a camera so compact that you’ll want immediately to jump out of your front door into a puddle full of rocks to test it out. This camera works with a 16 megapixel 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor able to run up to ISO 6400 and has wifi connectivity so you’re all ready for instant uploads galore. And yes, you can toss it down a flight of stairs, too.

The XP200 has waterproofing down to 15 meters below the surface of the sea, is resistant to cold temperatures – down to negative 10 degrees celsius, and will take on drops of up to 2 meters if you like. This beast is shockproof, dustproof, and is ready to roll out with the rest of your beastly rugged gadgets with the newest in fashionable beast-mode aesthetics. That means it looks nice, too.

The lens is one you’ll also find to work with 5x zoom, that is 28-140mm range, and there’s a lovely dedicated Burst Mode ready for your snappage as well. The back of this device also contains a 3-inch LCD display on the back so you’ll be able to see what you’re doing, and you’ll be able to take some slo-mo video as well. Video can be captured with this camera at Full HD 1080p at 60fps – and you can capture at 360fps as well if you want to go… so… super… slow.

This fabulous little monster will be available for 229 pounds in England starting at the end of April, and we’ll likely see it in the USA as well – soon and very soon! Have a peek at the timeline below of Fujifilm bits and pieces to put the whole puzzle together. And start shooting now!
