Fujifilm FinePix XP170 Adds Wireless To Rugged Waterproof Camera LineAdd another waterproof outdoor camera to the many options available for summer 2012! Fujifilm has added wireless image transfer to the FinePix XP waterproof point-and-shoots – their bestselling line of cameras. The new 14-megapixel Fujifilm FinePix XP170 lets photographers wirelessly transfer photos and videos from the camera to an iPhone, iPad or Android mobile device with a free Fujifilm app. Like Fujifilm’s other XP cameras, the XP170 has “Four-Way Protection.” It’s waterproof to 33 feet (10M), it can handle drops up to 6.5 feet (2M) (Shockproof), it’s freezeproof to 14°F (-10°C) and the waterproof seals also make it dustproof. Fujifilm says it’s got quicker startup and shot-to-shot times than previous XP cameras and it can even shoot 10 frames per second – great for outdoor action photos! The XP170 has a 5x 28-140mm (equivalent) optical zoom with a protective glass cover that has a water repellent coating so you won’t get blurry water drop blobs in your water park photos.

The waterproof and shockproof XP cameras were already a great choice for beach vacations, river trips, skiing, etc. But the new wireless capabilities mean you can use a real camera to document your adventures and then upload directly to Facebook, YouTube or other social networking sites. Camera phones keep getting better, but if you’re like me, you’d rather take pictures with a real camera that has a good zoom lens. I’ve been doing this with an Eye-Fi Mobile X2 SD card and iPhone but I expect the Fujifilm XP170 will be easier to set up and use. Plus, you can take the XP170 in the hot tub or spill your beer on it with no worries! Check out the two Fujifilm demo videos below:
