Advantages of the Fujifilm FinePix XP130: ease of use, quick start-up, good macro shooting, decent nature photos.

Disadvantages of Fujifilm FinePix XP130: not found yet, but you should take into account that this is a quality compact and you should not expect incredible pictures.

We bought this camera for cycling trips to take quick shots of landscapes during the ride. For these purposes it is ideal: it turns on quickly, takes pictures, lies comfortably in the hand, waterproof and shockproof, which is important for tourists. The photos are quite good for publishing on the Internet. This camera is worth its money.

Advantages: appearance, relative compactness.

Disadvantages: quality of shooting. Last hope for underwater photography. Perhaps for this function it will show itself. Have not tried it yet.

Was bought for quick shooting while traveling. Mostly shot in automatic mode. However, the pictures taken on a smartphone were of much higher quality. The graininess and white balance really disappointed us. Now these shots only serve to confirm our presence, but not for viewing pleasure. Attaching photos. One is taken with the XP130 camera, the second is taken with a smartphone for comparison. The pictures you have attached show that you have no knowledge of photography at all. The smartphone took a better picture because either you didn't tamper with it, or it habitually forgot your previous settings every time you launched the shooting app. A camera, on the other hand, assumes that its owner knows what he's doing and lets him experiment. You may have increased the exposure too much, set spot metering or set the ISO to 800 or 400 and forgot about it, and the short shutter speed (1/2000) was not enough. As a result, the frame ended up over-lit. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to see the EXIF, so I can't pinpoint the problem. So, let's remember the words of Nikolai Vasilyevich Gogol, who used the folk wisdom as an epigraph:

This camera was given to me for my birthday by my father. The cost of the device is 12,990 roubles. The production is traditionally Chinese. The packaging is cardboard, with two compartments and bags for each component of the device. The kit includes a two-part charger, an arm strap, a cable for connecting to a computer with a USB-micro connector, a warranty card and instructions (ordinary and for underwater shooting).Externally, the camera is compact and suitable for use by children and women. The top edge contains the on/off button, start and end of video recording, as well as the shutter. At the bottom is the model name and a tripod mount. On the side is a battery compartment and ports for connecting to a computer and TV. The exterior includes the lens, flash, and charge indicator. The back side contains basic controls such as photo and video settings, Wi-Fi connection, LCD screen with zoom function and more. The main photos and components of the device were taken on the tablet. I will also provide a video review and videos taken with this camera. Unfortunately, I was not able to demonstrate underwater shooting, but the rest of the pictures turned out pretty good. However, this camera is not suitable for shooting small animals, insects and birds at long distances. Color rendition, macro and landscape shots turn out pretty well. Noise is noticeable at night, but can be corrected with the editor. Audio recording is excellent and motion is captured without blurring. Connecting to Wi-Fi is a bit tricky, but the programs work well and transferring photos between devices is possible. Controlling the camera from your phone is also very convenient. Now about the specs:
