Fujifilm FinePix XP150 Digital Camera Review

This waterproof, shockproof, GPS-equipped tough-cam is a crummy point-and-shoot in expensive clothing. Skip it.

$279.95 MSRP


A long time ago, in the year 2009, any ol' waterproof camera was OK, as long as it was actually waterproof. In modern times, tough-cams actually need to take decent pictures.

The Fujifilm FinePix XP150 takes us on a trip down memory lane. It's a cheap junker of a camera in a durable shell. Read on if you must, but the short version is that the XP150 is a big loser.

The XP150 is available now in black, blue, orange, silver, and green for an MSRP of $279. Two variations are available, including the non-GPS XP100 available now for an MSRP of $249, and the WiFi-enabled, non-GPS XP170 available soon at an MSRP of $279.

Check out our 7-camera waterproof shootout to see how the year's best tough-cams compare.
