Fujifilm FinePix XP150 Digital Camera Review$279.95
Effects, Filters, and Scene modes
The XP150 has a bunch of scene modes, a few in-camera HDR modes, and a useful motion panorama mode. They're all mish-mashed together in a broad, long modes menu.
Durability is the main attraction on the XP150—that's how Fuji thinks they can get away with charging $279 for this thing. See our Durability section for more.
The XP150 has a built-in GPS antenna for geo-tagging photos. For some adventurous photographers, it’s a must-have feature. It allows them to map their photos and figure out exactly where they took their favorite shots—and share that info online with friends and other outdoor enthusiasts.
GPS works best in wide-open areas. The GPS can be disabled entirely; used only while the camera is turned on; or with the tracking data activated, it pings the satellite every few minutes to track its movements. This last setting really kills the battery life, especially if it's left on overnight.
If GPS is a critical feature for you, the XP150 works fine, but the best in-camera GPS system we’ve seen is in the Panasonic TS4.
