FinePix XP120 Delivers Four-Way Rugged Protection
The XP120 is waterproof to 65 ft./20 metres, shockproof to 5.7 ft./1.75 metres, freezeproof to 14° F /-10° C and dustproof and is designed for ease of use in outdoor activities. The XP120 features an improved grip design for firm one-handed holding and a double-locking mechanism for the battery compartment. There is no need to worry about water, sand or short drops, making it the perfect first camera for children when on a fun adventure.
High-Performance Sensor and Lens for Sharp Images
The XP120 is equipped with a 16.4-MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor and Fujinon 5x optical zoom lens that includes a 28-mm wide-angle setting for sweeping landscape and scenic shots. The optical zoom range can be doubled to 10x with Intelligent Digital Zoom technology, while the camera’s optical image stabilization function ensures that any effects from camera shake are minimized.
Compact and Lightweight Design with a Large 3.0-inch 920K-dot LCD monitor
The new compact XP120 has a large 3.0-inch 920K-dot high definition LCD monitor with anti-reflective coating in its lightweight body making it perfect for outdoor activities. The monitor inhibits light reflection so you are able to comfortably check composition and pictures taken under bright daylight or underwater. The operation buttons on the new XP120 were created in pursuit of optimal size and position, enabling smooth operation even while wearing gloves or holding with one hand. And, the battery compartment is designed with a double-locking mechanism that requires two-stage operation to lock and unlock the lid.
Extensive Shooting Functions With an All New “Cinemagraph” for Artistic Expression
The XP120 offers an all-new Cinemagraph mode that produces still images with moving elements. Cinemagraph is a novel photographic approach that creates an image somewhere between a still and video, which makes a stark contrast against the rest of the still image so that it appears as if time has been frozen. Additional features that aid versatile artistic expressions include Burst Mode of up to 10 fps, smooth full HD video recording of 60 fps, and time-lapse recording which is useful for fixed-point observation of scenes such as sunsets and flowers opening.

New Fujifilm X-Pro2 Body with XF 23-mm f/2 R WR Lens and Lens Hood Kit, Graphite Edition
The new Fujifilm X-Pro2 Graphite Edition boasts an all-new color to the X Series lineup. The X-Pro2 Graphite Edition has a rich, metallic texture due to a specialty multilayer coating. This edition will include the compact and lightweight Fujinon XF 23-mm f/2 R WR and LH-XF35-2 lens hood in the same unique Graphite color as the body, achieving high resolution performance and a fast and silent AF system. The new Fujifilm X-Pro2 Graphite Edition maintains the features of the current X-Pro2, adopting an extremely high-grade graphite color created through a multilayer coating process for the exterior of the camera body. By increasing the amount of black pigment component of the top coating, the camera achieves a more rich metallic texture.
