Any Fujifilm FinePix XP130 Review should probably mention how the camera would be the best digital camera for kids and the best digital camera, but I suspect most would tend to focus on how the cameras fare with adults or even professional photographers holding it. But with a kid in mind, some of the perceived negatives, like its ability to only shoot in 1080P, don\u2019t seem so bad anymore.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Fujifilm FinePix XP130 Digital Camera\r\nThe Fujifilm FinePix XP130 Digital Camera is another in a long line of cameras that would make professional photographers (and probably professional bloggers) scoff, but that would be perfect for kids and newcomers. It\u2019s lightweight and can shoot high-quality images to get kids excited about photography.\r\n\r\nImage Quality\r\nThe Fujifilm XP130 Waterproof Compact Camera has pretty decent image quality in bright-light situations. It may not reach the level of a smartphone, but it\u2019s still good enough for a kid looking to try out his first camera. It can shoot at 16.4MP, which isn\u2019t bad, but you\u2019ll have to really try to make pictures come out good in low light situations. The Fujifilm XP80 has this issue as well, but it\u2019s pretty common amongst budget cameras.\r\nEase of Use\r\nThe new XP130 has a large shutter button at the top of the camera for easy access whether you're outside shooting mountain ranges or underwater shooting jellyfish. It\u2019s a travel camera, and one that kids can use to learn, so it should also be lightweight and easily transportable. Fortunately, the camera weighs a mere 2 pounds and can fit inside a traveler's pocket. If you want super-lightweight, consider the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10.\r\nBattery Life\r\nThe XP130 Fujifilm FinePix holds a battery life of about 240 shots. That\u2019s decent, but still just a smidge shorter than most cameras in its class which average around 270, give or take. This is due to the 700mAH battery the camera contains which isn\u2019t really suited for long photography sessions. But at least the battery charges inside the camera via USB cable.\r\nDurability\r\nThe camera has ruggedized grips on the sides and on the corners. It\u2019s also waterproof down to 65 metres, freeze-proof down to 14\u00b0F, and drop proof almost six feet. This makes it great for kids who are constantly running around, rain or shine, or who want to take pictures during a family vacation. It also comes with Wi Fi and bluetooth options, but those need some major improvements.\r\nValue\r\nThe Fujifilm FinePix XP130 Digital Camera has one of the smallest CMOS sensors going at 1\/2.3 inches, which we\u2019ll leave up to you to decide if that\u2019s good or bad, and has a max shutter speed of 1\/2000 seconds. Shooting modes include HD video recording up to 1080P, same as the Nikon D3500 Digital SLR camera. We know 4K is the standard now, but 1080P still produces quality videos, and does a kid really need to shoot in 4K?\r\nFujifilm FinePix XP130 Digital Camera Wrap Up\r\nI think the biggest thing holding the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 Digital Camera back is the spotty bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. Kids are getting more tech-savvy, and more of them are starting with social media earlier these days, so not being able to easily share and transfer their pictures will probably be a turn-off for them.
