Fujifilm FinePix XP150 Digital Camera Review$279.95
The XP150 takes almost-hilariously fuzzy, imprecise photos. At the center of the frame, at the wide-angle setting, we measured a respectable 1827 MTF50s (measurements of edge sharpness). Pretty good, but that's as sharp as it gets, and the drop-off everywhere else is quick and ugly.
We measured fewer than 400 MTF50s at several areas of the frame at a few different focal lengths, bottoming out at a lowly 328 MTF50s in the middle of the focal range, partway between the center and right edge of the frame. Most point-and-shoots that we test in our labs can take sharper photos than that when they're strapped into our stabilization rig, shaking violently, with stabilization turned off. More on how we test sharpness.
Stabilization works reasonably well. Photos were 37% sharper with stabilization turned on. Experience tells us that's about two, maybe three stops of usefulness in the real world.
