NOT water proof

Chris S. Holmes, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: OK, this WAS a great camera. But when you pull the camera out of your swim suit pocket after swimming to see that the battery compartment is wide open, it costs 116$ to repair. The latch that keeps water out of the battery/SD card compartment is a silly little sliding latch that opens if it is bumped. It just popped open inside my pocket. Truly a design flaw on an otherwise good quality camera.

Crap Crap Crap, Total junk

Waterboi, Amazon
16 September 2012
  • Summary: This camera was taken out maybe a total of 3 times before it broke. Took it into the water to take some pictures of my 4 month old baby and it didnt work. Got it into the car and opened the battery case to see if maybe the battery was dead and what do I see.............the entire compartment filled with water.

  • Summary: This camera took some wonderful photos. But the latch for the battery never would close properly and apparently the inside isn't waterproof.

Worked fine then leaked. Does not appear to be really water tight

Lauriston Izlar, Amazon
30 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to film under water for our whirlpool bath product line for a promotion film I was working on. It worked the first two times and then leaked on the third day of use. We were only filming at 19 inches deep and the quality of the video was excellent until the camera flooded. I would not recommend this if you really want water proof unless this was just a fluke or bad camera. My previous experience with Fugi digitals has been excellent.

Get to Maui, get in water, not waterproof

R. Taylor Weber "portlandia911", Amazon
5 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought this camera specifically for the trip I'm on right now...in Maui. I received it back in mid March and never thought to test it's waterproof capabilities because friends of mine have similar models and rave about their cameras. Well I'm here on vacation now, the sole purpose of buying the camera, and on it's maiden voyage into the ocean it didn't stay waterproofed and never worked.

Not Waterproof, have already had 2 replacements

A. Parr, Amazon
2 March 2012
  • Summary: Good camera in theory, but in practice it is a piece of junk. Like other people who have reviewed this product, I can also confirm that this camera is NOT WATERPROOF. The first time I took it into the water (snorkelling) the LCD screen went funny and stopped working. I sent it back to Fuji under warranty and they promptly replaced it with a new one, however not in the color I originally bought, and also all the shipping was at my own expense and it took weeks to get my...

Not Waterproof! I am on my 3rd one

A. Parr, Amazon
1 March 2012
  • Summary: This camera has some really cool features, which is why I couldn't justify giving it only 1 star, however, the quality of the camera itself is not very good at all, which is why I give only 2 stars. I just received my 3rd Fuji XP30, after having to return the first 2 after they stopped working. I bought this camera because I needed something that was going to be a good, hardy travel camera.

Doesn't live up to claim as durable

Vaden/Weinstein, Amazon
3 October 2011
  • Summary: Fujifilm FinePix XP30 14 MP Waterproof Digital Camera with Fujinon 5x Optical Zoom Lens and GPS Geo-Tagging Function (Black) We purchased this camera because it was advertised as durable, can withstand up to a 4.9 foot drop. After a short time it quit working. We returned it for repair and are being asked to pay $87 because it was dropped. No way it was dropped more than 4.9 feet! No memorable "drops" whatsoever.

Audio is out-of-sync

H. Wang "jwangamazon", Amazon
5 July 2011
  • Summary: I got the Fuji XP20 mainly for taking videos in conditions that my Canon HD camcorder can not. On my first usage in a river rafting event, I already see the problems with this camera: 1) I am experienced with Camera and camcorders, I know how to hold them properly. But the lens head is placed in a very awkward place, your fingers will easily cover part of the lens head. So, don't be surprised to see your fingers in the final photos and video clips.
