Summary: Fuji packed a number of features in this small ultra-compact camera and kept cost very low. Waterproof cameras with GPS cost almost twice as much as the Fuji Finepix XP30. Given the rough conditions under which such a camera is meant to be used, there may be a reason to avoid investing a lot of money into it. No amount of ruggedness can save a camera from sinking or dropping into a cliff. Neocamera detailed review Read the Fuji Finepix XP30 review here.
