Photos are extremely important to me, especially when traveling. I recently traveled to Belize with my husband and knew I needed more than my phone to capture great photos. I knew I’d see amazing sites in this country. See crystal clear water and thousands of fish when snorkelling. I needed a camera that could capture great images of my trip.
Fuji sent me an XP90 camera to bring along to Belize. This camera is a great size, is shock proof, waterproof and has WiFi.
I was immediately impressed by how easy it was to take good photos with the XP90. I primarily wanted this camera for underwater use but found myself taking many scenery pictures and action shots with it. The buttons on this camera are easy to figure out, the zoom is simple and the video mode works great.
Facts about the XP90:
- Waterproof to 50ft/15m
- Shockproof to 5.8ft/1.75m
- Freezeproof 14°F/-10°C
- Dust-proof against dust or sand
- WiFi remote camera control and image transfer
- Full HD 1080p video
- Bright 3” 920k dot high-definition LCD with anti-reflective coating
- 5X optical zoom
As mentioned above, the main reason I wanted the Fuji XP90 was to take underwater photos. I knew I’d be snorkelling every day while in Belize and I wanted a great way to capture what I saw underwater. The XP90 was perfect for this.
I attached the camera to a floatation strap because I didn’t want to lose it. The camera was very easy to use. My absolute favourite feature is that you can snap photos when taking a video. I was able to get many great shots by using this function.
I did my best at capturing the fish (and sharks!) that I spotted under water. My photos didn’t turn out to be National Geographic worthy but this was the user’s fault, not the camera’s. Here are a few shots I captured during my trip.
Here’s a video of the rough tail rays:
Once you get back to dry ground it’s very easy to send the photos from the XP90 to a phone or mobile device. This was perhaps the coolest feature of this camera. I was able to share my underwater shots with my family and friends easily.
Overall the Fuji XP90 camera is a great little everyday camera. It’s easy to use, well priced, durable and takes great photos!
You can find the Fuji XP90 online and in stores across Canada and the US.
