Fujifilm has released the FinePix XP90, a relatively minor update to last year's XP80 rugged camera. As with its predecessor, the XP90 is waterproof to 15m/50ft, shockproof from 1.8m/5.8ft, freezeproof and dustproof. The only major new feature is the LCD, which received a bump in both size and resolution (3" vs 2.7" and 920k vs 460k-dot).

It sports a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor and F3.9-4.9, 28-140mm equivalent lens with image stabilization. The camera has numerous special effects modes and can take HDR and panoramic photos. Video can be captured at 1080/60p or at frame rates of up to 480 fps (at lower resolutions). Naturally, Wi-Fi is also built in.

The XP90 can also serve as an action cam, with support for standard mounts and a dedicated mode which turns off the LCD for extended battery life. An optional 18mm equivalent wide-angle conversion lens is also available.

The FinePix XP90 will available in yellow, blue, orange and green for $229.95.
