9 Reasons Why You’ll Love the Fuji FinePix XP 120 Camera

A beautiful water park at Castaway Cay in the Bahamas. If you love photography and taking pics on-the-go, here are 9 reasons why you'll love the FinePix XP 120 Camera!

Why You’ll Love the FinePix XP 120 Camera

I love to take pictures, whether I am outdoors and climbing to the top of a mountain, kayaking in a lake, or traveling with my family.

The camera on my phone is really good, and my DSLR is dependable. The only problem is that it can be rather large to lug around and my phone can’t always follow me everywhere I go.

There are times when I want a camera that is a little more rugged, lighter and offers a lot of features.

The Fuji FinePix XP 120 Camera meets all those needs plus more, which is why I am excited to share it with you! Read on for the 9 reasons why you’ll love it!

1. It’s Tough

I’m going to start with the tough factor, because, well many of us have children. Which has most of us looking for a camera that can withstand their curious little hands!

The FinePix XP 120 Camera is shockproof. You can drop in up to 5.8 feet and it won’t be affected in any way.

You’ll still feel your heart in your throat when it happens, but trust me, it will survive the fall!

2. It’s Waterproof

It is also waterproof up to 65 feet and has been sealed to prevent the entry of dust and sand. So, feel free to take it to the beach like I did and have fun using it in both the water and the sand.

You may find that you can get some amazing pictures of your children and marine life underwater. Don’t forget those pics of those fantastic sandcastles that you all build together.

I know that I will be taking this to vacations from now on and leaving my phone in my hotel room.

3. It Can Take the Cold

If you are a hardcore photographer or just generally outdoorsy, you’re gonna love this. The FinePix XP 120 Camera will work in temperatures as low as 14°F -10°C.

Winter gets really cold here, and I notice that even my phone shuts off sometimes. Being able to use my camera while we are out in the snow is life-changing. If I drop it in the snow, I don’t have to worry!

4. It’s Quick

As I used the FinePix XP 120 Camera to take pictures, I really loved how I could take multiple pictures in a row without missing a beat. That is one of my favourite features of this camera.

The continuous shooting mode allows me to take ten shots per second. That means that I will never miss that perfect shot or only have pictures of my children with their eyes closed.

Yes, that has happened too many times in the past to count!

5. It Has a Great Zoom

The 16.4-megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom, and 10x intelligent digital zoom will allow you to get up close and personal with anything that you want a picture of.

Especially things you cannot really get that close to. I took advantage of that feature when we went to the zoo in D.C. and I wanted amazing pictures of Bei Bei, the panda, who was up in the tree at the time.

Of course, I also used it with tigers, lions, and orangutans. As cuddly as they all look, I didn’t think it was a good idea to get too close to any of them!

6. You Can Send Pictures to Print

While all the above features are fabulous, many of you will like this one the best. The FinePix XP 120 Camera has wireless features that let you send any image you capture to your phone or tablet and then to your Instax SHARE.

You can print your photos instantly or share them immediately with friends and family. In other words, the grandparents will never need to wait too long for a new picture of their grandchildren when you use this camera. 

7. It Has Cinegraph Mode

If you’ve ever seen those cool pictures that come to life and move and you’re like me, well, you’re blown away.

You record a video of up to 5 seconds and specify which elements of the image you would like to see move.

Then, you’ll have a still image with a moving element. It is really cool. I still have to perfect it, and believe me, I will!

8. You Can Use it with a Remote

Another cool feature is that you can set up the camera on a tripod. Once you have your shot lined up, you can use the FUJIFILM Camera Remote app and hit the shutter through your phone or tablet.

You can adjust the zoom or switch from camera mode to video mode. It’s a cool feature to avoid shaky shots.

9. It Has Fun Filters

The camera has 11 filters that you can shoot with. 7 of those filters can be used with the video option as well.

The filters you can choose from are Sketch, Pop Color, Toy Camera, Miniature, Soft Focus, Partial Color (one of my faves), Cross Screen, High-Key, Low-Key, Dynamic Tone, and Fisheye.

Why I Love It:

Apart from the many reasons above, one of the best parts of the camera is the large 3-inch 920K-dot LCD monitor. Even with the nice screen, it’s still thin and compact and has an anti-reflective coating.

When it’s bright and sunny out, you can still see it clearly. The cinegraph mode is amazing, and I can’t wait to start sharing those moving images on my Instagram.

Since I have my Instax printer, I love that I can send the images I want to print to my phone and right to my printer.

It’s a matter of clicking a few buttons and in seconds, I have a picture in my hand. This helps to bring pictures back to print and away from digital.

I can’t tell you the thousands of images that I have on my phone, computer and in storage. It’s nice to able to print them out. 

The time-lapse feature is pretty neat too. I know that it isn’t a new feature but, it’s a great way to step up your photography game up a notch.

Great for Vacations

We recently went away for #DisneySMMC and I just knew I had to bring my Fuji XP 120. It was perfect to take with us to the beach and shoot in the water and beyond.

It helped me to capture the stunning pictures above. 

For a point and shoot, it has many options that DSLR’s have and many that they don’t. The panoramic option helps you capture so much more.

There are various features like portrait, landscape, sunset, macro and so much more to help you capture exactly what you want.
