Valhalla, N.Y., January 15, 2015 FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced the new FinePix XP80, the latest addition to the best-selling FUJIFILM XP-series. The new FinePix XP80 rugged digital camera is waterproof to 50ft./15m, shockproof from 5.8ft./1.75m, freezeproof to 14°F/-10°C and dustproof*,**. It features a 16.4MP CMOS sensor with a 28-140mm 5x optical zoom lens, Wi-Fi® connectivity for one touch transfers to smartphones and tablets, and captures full HD movies at 1080p, even underwater.
Remote shooting with instant image and movie sharing
The FinePix XP80 comes equipped with wireless functionality for remote shooting using the free Fujifilm Camera Remote app and dedicated Wi-Fi® button on the camera. In addition to remote shooting, wireless connectivity in the XP80 also allows users to select images or movies to be transferred to smartphones, tablets and computers.
Action Camera Mode
The FinePix XP80 offers an Action Camera Mode that turns the XP80’s lens into a fixed 18mm and 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 to preserve battery life and extend recording times.

High speed to capture every shot
The FinePix S9900W and FinePix S9800 give users the speed they are looking for to capture every shot they want. The cameras each have a startup time of just 1 second, autofocus in as little as 0.15 seconds, and are ready to take another shot in just 0.6 seconds.
