FUJIFILM FinePix XP60 brings style and substance to its rugged outdoor series
Heavy-duty “Four-Way Protection” delivers a durable and fun “go anywhere” camera
Valhalla, N.Y., January 7, 2013 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation announces the latest addition to the popular rugged XP Series, the FinePix XP60. The new XP60 uses an improved 16MP CMOS sensor for enhanced image quality, a reinforced 5x FUJINON lens, and is Waterproof to 20ft (6M), Shockproof to 5ft (1.5M), Freezeproof to 14°F (-10°C) and Dustproof. The XP60 also has a newly redesigned battery door lock with double seals for enhanced protection so that users are certain to get their most adventurous shots, all with an attractive camera body that is easy to use for the whole family.
“The new XP60 is the perfect outdoor digital camera for users who want to take great images every place that they go, whether it’s the beach, the park or the slopes, the XP60 can stand up to water, ice, drops and dust and get those adventurous pictures,” said David Troy, director of marketing, Digital Cameras, Electronic Imaging Division, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “And it’s truly designed for action with dedicated buttons for Burst Shooting Mode and full HD movie recording, as well as a traditional shutter button.”
Superior image quality
The FinePix XP60 uses an improved 1/2.3-inch 16MP CMOS sensor with CMOS Shift Image Stabilization to capture images that are sharp and clear, even in challenging low-light conditions. It also incorporates an internal 5x optical FUJINON zoom lens (28-140mm*2) that allows users to get close to the action, even under water. And with its Intelligent Digital Zoom, the XP60 can double its zoom range to 10x while still offering optimum image quality.
High Speed for Real Life
The FinePix XP60 has all the speed users need to capture their fast action including two high speed shooting modes, 10fps*3 continuous shooting mode at full resolution (max 10 frames) and an ultra-high speed continuous shooting at up to 60fps*3 (max 70 frames in 16:9, S size only). The XP60 has a dedicated “Burst Mode Button” placed on the top of the camera that lets users switch to this mode instantly without having to fumble through menu options to activate, so you can capture even the fastest action.

The XP60 also features advanced in-camera movie editing including, “movie editing” and “movie join” to seamlessly pull together multiple video clips into a single movie.
Seeing is Believing
The XP60 has bright and vibrant 2.7” LCD monitor which has an anti-reflective coating that makes viewing images and data on the camera easy and crystal clear, even in bright sunlight. The screen features an automatic brightness adjustment feature which can be optimized to monitor brightness to account for ambient lighting, which saves battery power without sacrificing clarity.
