Summary: For the price, this camera cannot be beat! I love all the features that this camera has. I compared this camera to many others on the market that were comparable and they were all at least $100 more. I used this camera for some water adventures and it held up nice. It is truly a waterproof camera. The GPS Geo-tagging function is a neat feature that I use regularly. My suggestion is that you buy this camera and give it a try. You can't go wrong with the price on this!!

Summary: I had this on my wishlist and received it as a gift. I looked at other outdoor cameras and based on reviews didn't see why I would want others at double the price (Pentax)when reviewers had the same gripes and complaints. Those complaints were mostly about water submersion issues, which i tested at home. I ran the camera under a faucet and let it dry. The camera still works. Hopefully that means I will have no issues.
Summary: A friend had received this as a gift, while we were vacationing together I was able to try it out. It was love at first try! I ordered before we got home! Pictures were great, the under water photos are fantastic! Took movies while diving in Hawaii, could see every detail!! Had just as much fun in the pool with the kids. Everyone wanted their picture underwater! Could not be happier for the price!
Summary: I could not be any happier at this point with my new FujiFilm XP30 Camera. WE have used it in the pool for hours and took many pictures with it.. Our Family fun is almost always based around sand and water, The very expensive cameras that I own and did own were not conducive to being used in those environmental, Which means we got very few pictures of our fun in water parks and the Ocean and our very own pool.. Now this will change all that.
Summary: Ive gone through two of these and got a third one, and now i know it takes extra TLC to keep the camera in top shape. I did not use GPS function so i cant help there. The camera takes amazing pictures 90 percent of the time. It takes great underwater photos and as far as low light photos goes theres no reason to expect superior quality. use the flash if you cant find a setting that lowers the ISO. The camera can focus in complete darkness.
Excerpt: The Fujifilm XP30 is a camera specifically designed for outdoor enthusiasts, adventurers, or those of us who are just plain unlucky when it comes to looking after electronic accessories. This camera is waterproof, dustproof, shockproof and freezeproof, making it able to withstand just about anything that one could subject a camera to! But not only that - it also has a built in GPS that is able to show current co-ordinates and link your photos to their location.
Pros: Waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, GPS functionality, good picture quality
