Fujifilm FinePix XP170 Spotted at FCC Gates

May 11, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Well, here is some interesting news for the shutterbugs. Following Fujifilm’s announcement of the new rugged waterproof camera FinePix XP170, we have spotted the same among the documents in the office of the Federal Communications Commission.

However, the documents at the apex body office waiting for an official approval do not give any additional info than what we have understood from Fujifilm’s official announcement.

It is almost sure that the rig will come out with the much hyped Image Transfer ability through Wi-Fi to Android and iOS devices.

To refresh you, the tough camera which does not even fear water, carries along a 14 MP CMOS sensor and allows you to record all your adventures in high quality 1080p videos.

However, the highlight is the camera’s extreme survival capability. It can stay waterproof up to 33 feet under water, shockproof to falls from a maximum height of two meters and freeze proof to minus 10 degree Celsius.

Feature wise also the rig is behind no one. With a 2.7 inch anti-reflective LCD display and Fujinon 28-140mm 5x wide angle optical zoom lens, the rig offers up to 10 fps continuous shooting.

To keep it a potent rival to similar devices in the market, Fujifilm has added all usual intelligence in its head like auto scene recognition, face detection for up to 6 faces plus red eye reduction, auto AF tracking and a 360 degree auto panorama mode with the shutter machine.

There is no change in price tag too. The camera comes with a price tag that reads $280 in blue and orange shades.
