About this deal

CALS - Take pictures at size and image quality settings suitable for submission under Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism guidelines. Though the lime green of our review sample is either love-it-or-hate-it (though will no doubt prove popular with younger members of the family), it does mark this product out as a bit of fun as much as anything else, while the value added pricing won't have users expecting the earth of it (while also making it affordable enough to tempt casual smartphone shooters to a dedicated device). The real estate at the back of the FujifilmFinepix XP140 is meanwhile largely swallowed up by its 3-inch, 920K dot resolution LCD screen, which occupies two thirds of the left hand side in the absence of any optical or electronic viewfinder, the inclusion of which, to be honest, would always feel like unnecessary window dressing anyway on a camera of this size. You can get a firm grip on it with one hand, but need to be careful not to obstruct the lens if using both. In our testing with the XP140 successfully avoided red-eye and the flash produced only minor wide-angle vignetting from a distance of 1.

We're taking a look back through 2019 by focusing on one of our all-time favorite photographic subjects – Belvedere, a rescue pup who joined the DPReview team last fall and graced many of our sample galleries over the past 12 months. CameraWorld is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, registration number 689327. The bonus is that if you'd first used a digital camera fifteen years ago and this was only the second one you'd picked up, there'd still be much that's familiar that would have you scrolling through and selecting settings in an instant. The Nikon Coolpix W150 is a new tough camera that's been designed to be easy to use for all of the family, regardless of their age. Though purple fringing can be spotted on occasion between areas of high contrast, what really stands out here are the Fuji's colours, which fair 'pop' even with the camera left on its Standard setting, meaning that you and your friends and family will look healthy, while the greens and blues of landscapes will appear especially lush and verdant.As regards what is different this time around, when compared to previous generations of Fuji toughened cameras, the straight answer is not that much, save for the headline that, by being waterproof down to 25 metres, that's 125% better than the previous XP130 model. Yes, we may lose a little definition and there's some visible softening at the extreme edges of frame when shooting at maximum wide angle, but in truth this is only really noticeable if you're actively looking for such instances.

With a 5x range of 28-140mm it has one of the longest zooms of any waterproof camera and will get you a fair bit closer to the action than the 100mm TOUGH TG-6 or the 90mm COOLPIX W150.While it won't compete 100% with a DSLR or compact system camera, and it would be unfair to ask it to do so, colours straight from this compact are well saturated and possess plenty of 'pop', even in default standard settings, which means its intended adrenalin junkie users are unlikely to want to do much in the way of image adjustment once they've downloaded shots, prior to sharing.

Everything is very ergonomic although those with larger hands may find the buttons fiddly, especially zoom in/out buttons. The camera’s lens protrudes from the top of the camera to give it a sort of bug-eyed appearance that may also appeal to kids – one of the biggest audiences for this kind of camera. You don’t get heaps of control, but it’s capable of producing good shots when the conditions are right.The Panasonic Lumix FT7 is a new flagship tough camera that is waterproof down to a depth of 31 meters / 102 feet.
