Summary: I LOVE my little Fujifilm XP, a perfect "all-in-one" camera. I took this camera on my trip to Hawaii, this little guy came EVERYWHERE with me; snorkeling, ocean kayaking, volcano hikes, cliff jumping, swimming, the beach and a night-dive. I ended up with some great underwater shots and videos of reefs and fish. 95% of the pictures came out crystal clear and share-worthy. The pictures taken out of the water were also great quality.
Summary: Don't actually use it for underwater! The second day of a vacation to Jamaica, I took it snorkeling with me. I never went deep, but after about 15 minutes in the water, the screen quit working. I immediately took it back to my room and put it in rice overnight, and it started working again, so I thankfully was able to use it on the rest of vacation, but I kept it out of the water after that. I would call it water-resistant more than water-proof.
Summary: I bought this to take pictures while on a beach vacation. It claims to be water resistant to 16 feet, which was much deeper than I planned to take it. I got some great pictures while it worked, but unfortunately it only worked for two days of a seven-day beach vacation. For the rest of the trip, I had to use my cell phone and tablet for photos (and they of course couldn't be used while snorkeling).
Excerpt: I plan to take this with me to St Lucia, V.I.. Can't wait to take under water pictures. I like the feel and look of the camera. It has features in it that I can enjoy using . The pictures that I took so far are very good. I like shopping at Staples. When you mark down good items like this camera, I enjoy taking the advantage of it. Keep up with the low prices you mark down with. When I come in and see what you have to offer I become more encouraged to buy what I see.
Excerpt: For a visit to Hawaii, I bought this camera to use for under water shots and movies. This was not my main camera but, I found myself using it more than the Sony. Mostly because its small and can be in your swimsuit/pant pocket and not worry about water. The shots under water are great and the movies are so cool. I'd order an extra battery online weeks before leaving and take many test shots moving in and out of the preprogram modes.
Excerpt: Excellent small camera, a great companion to my DSLR camera. Good images in a small package. Has many different modes, close up, portrait,etc. Great on kayak trips and by the pool as it is waterproof. Price was very reasonable. It is one of those items you can take right out of the package and use.
