About this deal

In program auto mode you get three focus mode choices, area AF, centre AF and tracking and of those, centre AF is your best bet for subjects like this. If you need advice or support for your product, please in the first instance contact the support provider using the number on this support page.

Close ups are achievable down to a mere 9cm from your subject, which again is respectable for a camera in the Fuji's class. megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and FUJINON's 5x optical image stabilized zoom lens starting from 28mm which can be doubled to 10x using Fujifilm's Intelligent Digital Zoom technology.With a waterproof rating of 25m, it could make a great addition to your holiday giving you the ability to shoot effortlessly underwater. Launched at the beginning of 2019, the XP140 is Fujifilm’s regular annual update to its XP waterproof model, the XP130 was released a year earlier and the XP120 in early 2017. Overall, the Finepix XP140 is a compact rugged camera that would appear to offer serviceable image quality and the ability to go a significant depth underwater. Though we found there was some loss of definition at the very edges of frame when shooting at maximum 28mm equivalent wide angle setting and some loss of highlight detail (and visibility of pixel fringing) under particularly bright conditions (where an manual option is to simply dial the exposure compensation down), under most circumstances we found the images from the Fujifilm XP140 to be rather better than we expected from a camera of this ilk. Eye Detection picks out faces in group photos and portraits to make sure everyone is properly focused.

Your smartphone can probably take better pictures in good conditions, but it can't survive being dropped on the rocks or repeatedly dunked 25 metres underwater. Available in a range of bright, eye-catching colours, it has the benefit of standing out should you drop it in the snow, on the sand, or even underwater. Shock of the “MIL Standard”, a standard stipulating the durability of supplies procured by the American military, set by the United States Department of Defense.SMILE mode detects when you’re showing off your pearly whites, while Face Auto Shutter mode takes the pic when you’re facing the camera. Park Cameras is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, register number 1449928 and act as a credit broker and not a lender. In addition to improved waterproofing which adds 5 metres to the depth of the older model, the headline feature is a new 4K video mode. Drop down therefore to Full HD resolution if you want the standard 30fps rate for smoother footage, which makes the inclusion of 4K here – which the manufacturer trumpets as being the feature's first inclusion in the series of its toughened cameras – seem more like an exercise in box ticking than anything else.

This is a selection of sample images from the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 camera, which were all taken using the 16 megapixel Fine JPEG setting. The XP140 also contains a host of automatic functions such as main subject recognition and new user interface, making it the easy choice for a wide variety of shooting situations. The Fujifilm FinePix XP140's 5x zoom lens achieves a maximum wide-angle focal length equivalent to 28mm, and can zoom in to 140mm (in 35mm-camera terms). Digital effects modes here include a corner shading 'toy camera' option, the vivid 'pop colour', high key, low key and fish eye effects. But that’s the thing – many of the situations that you might want to use the XP140 would easily kill your smartphone.

So do these improvements make it the default holiday choice for anyone looking for a cheap, smartphone stand-in? But if you're aware of this at the outset, you can go a long way to avoiding this happening – plus the camera is light enough, and a firm enough grip can be had, that it can indeed be used one-handed, which avoids the possible stray finger issue. There is no need to worry about water, sand or dropping the camera, making it the perfect first camera for children as well. With a backlit sensor on board, we even found the camera coped rather better than expected in low light or at night, despite the distinctly average f/3.
