About the Fujifilm FinePix XP140
The Fujifilm FinePix XP140 would come in really handy in just about any situation, but I daydream about taking it on a weeklong vacation. It's compact, rugged, waterproof, and offers tons of useful features that can help snapshots become art. It's dust- and sand-proof, and literally has a shooting mode called Beach. When you take a dip to cool off, take it with you, and use Underwater mode to capture a whole new world. That's just the start of what this camera can do.
Versatile shooting options
The XP140 features target-finding autofocus with face and eye detection that helps you take great portraits, and optical image stabilization that keeps photos from coming out blurry. If you're looking to record action, you can shoot up to 15 frames per second in burst mode, use video slow motion, or make a time-lapse sequence. Heck, you can make your own epic 4K movie.
Lots of ways to share

CALS: CALS is a setting for taking pictures at the size and image quality settings suitable for submission under Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism guidelines. The image size is 1280 x 960, in a 4:3 aspect ratio.

The available Advanced Filters include: Toy Camera, Pop Color, High-Key, Low-Key, Fish-eye, Dynamic Tone, Miniature, Cross Screen, Rich & Fine, Monochrome, Partial Color (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple), and Soft Focus.
Intelligent Face Detection: When Face Detection is On, the camera automatically detects human faces anywhere in the frame and sets the focus and exposure for shots that emphasize portrait subjects. This mode will prevent the camera from focusing on the background when taking group portraits or self portraits. Intelligent Face Detection let you choose whether the camera detects and focuses on eyes (left priority, right priority, or auto).
Image Stabilization: When shooting in a poorly lit area, any degree of camera shake can cause blurry pictures. In this case, sensor-shift Image Stabilization can be activated to reduce the effect of the camera shake. You can choose whether the image stabilization is performed at all times (Continuous) when the camera is in the shooting mode, or only when the shutter button is pressed halfway (Shooting Only). In either mode, you can select "+Motion" to adjust the shutter speed to reduce motion blur when moving objects are detected. Image Stabilization can be turned off when using a tripod.
ISO Sensitivity: You can manually set the camera's sensitivity manually or automatically. Manually, you can set it between ISO 100 and ISO 12800. ISO Auto settings will adjust the sensitivity settings according to the shooting conditions. You can select Auto, Auto (400), Auto (800), and Auto (1600) with the value in parentheses the maximum limit.
White Balance: White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of lighting. You can select Auto, Direct Sunlight, Shade, "Daylight" fluorescent lamps, "Warm White" fluorescent lamps, "Cool White" fluorescent lamps, and Incandescent light. There is also an underwater setting to reduce the blue cast typically associated with underwater lighting.
Exposure Compensation: You can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure a total of 13 steps from -2.0 to +2.0 EV in 1/3 EV steps.
Continuous Shooting: You can capture motion in a series of pictures using the Continuous Shooting mode. In Continuous Mode, you can take pictures at the selected frame rate (High, Middle, or Low) while the shutter button is pressed. The Continuous Shooting Mode options include:
|Mode||Frame Rate||Max. Frames per burst|
|Low||3 fps||Until storage is full|
4K Burst: In 4K Burst, the camera shoots a series of 4K pictures (3840 x 2160) at 15 frames per second, allowing you to choose which shots to save. During 4K Burst mode, the picture angle is reduced. A memory card with a UHS speed class of 3 or better is recommended.
Self-timer: The camera can be set to take photos after a 10-second or 2-second delay. The 10-second delay allows the photographer to get in the photo, while the 2-second delay is best to reduce camera shake. Other self-timer options include:
- Face Auto Shutter: A picture is taken when the camera detects a portrait subject faceing the lens.
- Smile Shutter: The camera releases the shutter when the subject smiles.
- Buddy: The camera takes a picture when it detects two subjects close together.
- Group: A picture is taken when the camera detects the selected number (1 to 4) of portrait subjects.
Interval Shooting/Time-Lapse Movie: You can capture multiple images of a scene taken at set intervals to capture a beautiful sunset or a flower blooming. You can save the still images only, or save the still images and create a time-lapse movie. The time-lapse movie will condense the scene from minutes or hours into seconds. You can set the shooting interval from 1 second to 24 hours, and the number of shots from 1 to 999. For the time-lapse movie, you can set the frame size at 4K, 1080p, or 720p, and the frame rate at 15 fps (4K only), 60 fps, 50 fps, and 24 fps.
Focusing: The XP140 uses contrast-detection TTL (through the lens) Auto Focusing. You can choose from Multi, Area, or Tracking focus modes for still images, and Center or Continuous Movie AF Modes. The camera's focus range is approximately 2.4" to infinity (wide angle) and 3.2' to infinity (telephoto).
Flash Modes: The FinePix XP140 has a built-in flash with an effective range of 1' to 14.4' (wide angle), 3.2' to 12.4' (telephoto). Red-eye removal minimizes the "red-eye" effect, and is available for each flash mode. You can choose from the following flash modes:
- Auto: flash fires automatically as required by the shooting conditions
- Fill Flash: flash will fire whenever a picture is taken
- Slow Synchro: auto flash combined with slow shutter speeds (tripod recommended)
- Flash Off: You can close the pop-up flash when flash photography is prohibited, or to capture natural lighting under dim light.
Light Metering: The XP140 uses 256-segment, TTL (through-the-lens) metering, where the camera automatically assesses the scene and selects the optimum exposure.
Viewing Images: Images can be played back one-at-a-time or in a variety of multi-frame views. Multi-frame options include a 9-image grid (3 x 3) and a 100-image grid (10 x 10) of micro-thumbnails with the highlighted image slightly enlarged.
Image Search: The Image Search function lets you search pictures by the following criteria:
- Date: Viewing images by date makes it easy to locate specific events or occasions.
- Face: Portraits can be selected based on composition: groups, couples, or solo portraits.
- Favorites: Search for photos by rating
- Scene: Pictures shot in Auto or SR Auto modes can be replayed according to the type of scene: portrait, landscape, night scene, or macro.
- Type: You can easily search your pictures according to the type of photos: still photos, edited images, or movie footage.

After you have zoomed in and scrolled the picture to the desired composition, you can create a cropped image of a picture. Copies will have an aspect ratio of 4:3, and will be saved as a separate file.
Resize: To create a small copy of a picture, you can select "Resize" from the menu. The new images vary in size with the original image.
Slide Show: You can view pictures in an automated slide show. You can select normal playback, or with a Fade transition. If the images is of faces, the camera automatically zooms in on the faces detected by Intelligent Face Detection.
Printing Pictures: Using DPOF (Digital Print Order Form), you can designate which images to print on a DPOF-compatible printer, and whether to print them with or without date. Pictures can also be printed wirelessly via Bluetooth to Fujifilm instax SHARE printers.
