Fujifilm FinePix XP170 Reviews

Pocket-lint reviews the Fujifilm FinePix XP170 and writes;
“The XP-series has carried an affordable price legacy. Until now. The XP170’s addition of Wireless Image Transfer hoiks this price point up beyond its XP150 predecessor, acquiring a more sizable £220 asking price.”

Steves-digicams reviews the Fujifilm FinePix XP170 and writes;
“I like the sturdy feel of this camera. It feels like it’s well-built and the double-lock on the compartment latch should make you feel comfortable taking this model into difficult environmental conditions.”

Ephotozine reviews the Fujifilm FinePix XP170 and writes;
“Detail in images isn’t great even at the lowest of ISO settings, but if you aren’t going to be using the images for large prints but for sharing on the web, this won’t be of much concern, particularly as colour reproduction is good enough. Where the XP170 does excel is with its range of features and handling. There is full 1080p HD video recording, Wi-Fi, impressive panoramas and the battery life is very good.”
Rating: ★★★½☆
