About this deal

In program auto mode you get three focus mode choices, area AF, centre AF and tracking and of those, centre AF is your best bet for subjects like this.

Fujifilm's years of experience are reflected with its colour reproduction technology, which ensures beautiful colours in all conditions. All content, design, and layout are Copyright © 1998–2024 Digital Photography Review All Rights Reserved. It's available in yellow or white with a black outline, or black with a green, blue or silver outline.

The other two buttons on the top plate, framed by small industrial looking screws either side that subtly reinforce the toughened prowess of this model, are a marginally raised on/off button that's marked as such, plus a slightly recessed red record button self-evidently illustrated with a graphic for a movie camera. Digital effects modes here include a corner shading 'toy camera' option, the vivid 'pop colour', high key, low key and fish eye effects. The Fujifilm XF 23mm F2 R WR delivers a 35mm full-frame equivalent field of view and stands out due to its small size and weather-resistant build. There is no need to worry about water, sand or dropping the camera, making it the perfect first camera for children as well.

So the Finepix XP140 does ok for macro shot’s but if you like to get in really close, you can’t beat the microscope modes on the TOUGH TG-6. The Sony a9 III is the world's first full-frame mirrorless camera to feature a global electronic shutter with simultaneous readout. The XP140 specifications say that’s reduced to a maximum 6 frames at 10fps, however I managed an 8-frame burst which you can see above. In addition to the durable design and build, the XP140 has a FUJINON lens that boasts the company’s unique colour reproduction technology and uses a 16. Apart from these key features, the main specs are the same as the previous model - there's a 16 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, a wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens equivalent to 28-140mm in 35mm terms, and there is optical image stabilisation built-in, which moves the CMOS sensor to counter camera shake.

The XP140 is now capable of movie recording in 4K quality for the first time in its series’ history. It also offers Bluetooth, and the ability to pair directly with Instax printers to get instant photos of your adventures.

The Finepix XP140 is a chip off the old block – near identical to its predecessor and the XP120 before that. Do this and a 'Fine' quality setting Large JPEG – the top setting – image is committed to memory in an instant. It’s not always clear how this affects settings changes, but you can turn it off if you think it’s doing something wrong.I tried the earlier XP130 attached to my surfboard, but the angle of view wasn’t wide enough to fit me in and interestingly Fujifilm has dropped Action camera mode on the new model. It can now go even deeper than before, to an impressive 25 metres, while other improvements include a new scene recognition mode, which should make it better able to assess what it’s photographing, and 4K video recording (albeit at 15fps). In addition to improved waterproofing which adds 5 metres to the depth of the older model, the headline feature is a new 4K video mode. The camera’s lens protrudes from the top of the camera to give it a sort of bug-eyed appearance that may also appeal to kids – one of the biggest audiences for this kind of camera. On the bottom there's a tripod screw thread, and on the right-hand side there's a grippy twist wheel which gives you access to the battery, memory card and USB/HDMI ports.

To find out more about that and the Finepix XP140’s other features; and to see how it measures up against the pricier Olympus TOUGH TG-6 and the cheaper Nikon COOLPIX W150 – both in and out of the water – read on! Yes, we may lose a little definition and there's some visible softening at the extreme edges of frame when shooting at maximum wide angle, but in truth this is only really noticeable if you're actively looking for such instances.While most of us probably won’t venture further than the deep end of the swimming pool, for those who like scuba diving and similar, having those kinds of depths available is really useful. Other new features for this year's model include a maximum sensitivity of ISO12800 (one stop higher than its predecessor, the XP130), improved Scene Recognition Auto mode, Eye Detection, a new processor, improved durability and a new user interface.
