Summary: This is a reasonably good camera for the money in many ways, it unfortunately has one glaring technical oversight. The HD movies this camera creates instead of being in a normal 1080p/30 format are in a 1080i/60 format! For the most part interlaced movie formats have been obsolete for years.
Summary: This camera is very slow when trying to take back to back pictures. Also, some pictures come out blurry if taken too fast. At other times, if the subject is moving, it will also be blurry. When I first received the camera, this was not the case and now, it seems to be getting slower and slower. I tried some of the different settings also.
Summary: I got this on sale for $150 and at that price you really can't beat the number of features in a waterproof camera. My main problem is that the HDMI port wouldn't accept a cable (I verified the cable works on other ports), it looked like there was an extra piece of metal or something in there. For some reason I actually paid attention to the bundled notice to send it in for repair rather than just returning it.
Summary: Ordered camera for a trip to Mexico. Received a few days before and used to photograph some of the flooding here in CO (in the rain), and on a quick hiking trip in the mountains (dry). Was happy with the picture quality. To get clear/well lit photos just play with the pre-set modes until you've learned what is best for different situations.
Summary: I purchased from another retailer and tested it out in the pool and compared to pics on my Nexus 4 smartphone with an 8mp camera. I decided to return the camera and will be using a dicapac to take underwater pictures with my phone instead. My cell phone pictures were just as good as this camera, same level of detail even though this camera had 2X the pixles. Also when trying to take pictures with the sun in the background did not turn out well at all.
Poor image quality, poor LCD display, rest is fine

Summary: I bought this camera at Best Buy and returned it after a week. In users' reviews, when you read "It does great pictures", "great high resolution pics", "great photos and videos", remember that's very subjective. I worked in a photo lab, and I had many customers telling me that the quality of the pictures from their single-use camera was great. But it was not, not great compared to the picture you'd get from an average camera. But people were happy with them.
Great features but phone like picture quality, often out of focus

Summary: We got this because previous camera failed and we wanted one we could take to the beach without having to worry about sand and splashes. Taking it snorkeling was a big bonus. Starts up fast, pretty communicative, on screen help and such. Usually focuses fast. We liked all the colors it comes in. Panorama mode, HDR, image stabilization, the works. Inexpensive for the features.
Summary: I used the camera for the first time last weekend. I have no idea what I did from picture to picture, but one picture will look fantastic and the next picture (taken 2 minutes later) will look blurred. These point and shoot camera's are pretty easy to use and I'm well-aware of how the focus works. That's not the problem. The problem is that picture quality is inconsistent.
Summary: I'm happy to have a Fuji again. IMO Fastest camera from "ON" to shooting. I used to have the Fuji F700 and missed it greatly. It finally failed and I switched to Nikon. The Nikon L120 takes about 5 seconds "ON" to shooting and is bulky. This Fuji XP60 is fast, takes good photos, light, small, waterproof, dustproof, shock resistant...perfect for an active person. I can carry this everywhere I go easily!
Summary: This camera takes nice pics and works underwater but...you have to be very careful to follow the time instructions and dry out after use instructions after use in the water. I have had it replaced one time, even tough I did follow the guidelines.... It is sensitive to the salt in ocean water I think. But the company FUJIFILM was really great about replacing it with a new one when I sent them the water damaged one.
