Ideal for snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking and other outdoor leisure activities, the FinePix XP70 complies with IP68 standards. This means it is waterproof to 10 metres, can withstand a drop of up to 1.5m, will still operate in temperatures as low as -10? and is dustproof to prevent the intrusion of dust or sand. Further protection from the elements is offered by the double-lock mechanism on the battery/memory card compartment that prevents accidental opening, plus there's a front grip and thumb rest for assured handling.
The FinePix XP70 comes equipped with wireless functionality for simple image sharing via a smartphone or tablet. The built-in Wireless Transfer function allows users to select images or movies to be transferred without the need for any time-consuming ID or password creation. All that's required is the free Fujifilm Camera Application to be downloaded and installed on the receiving device.
In addition to simple sharing, the Wi-Fi functionality in the XP70 allows users to back up images to a computer. Again, it's a very quick and simple process; just connect to a Wi-Fi router, select PC Auto Save and let the XP70 do the rest.
Given that the FinePix XP70 is likely to be used in bright, sunny conditions as well as inclement weather, an anti-reflection coating is applied to the rear LCD so it's still easy to view or compose images on the beach or in snow. The LCD monitor also has an auto brightness function that adjusts according to the ambient light levels.
Outdoor activities don't need to be limited to still image capture with the XP70, which offers a raft of movie capture functions, including a new Action Camera Mode. Available with the optional Action Camera Lens, which turns the XP70's lens into a fixed 18mm, the mode enables hands-free shooting so the camera can be mounted on your body or a piece of sporting equipment to get right to the heart of the action. In Action Camera Mode, the rear LCD turns off automatically for extending recording times.
