The best camera ?

They say the best camera is the one you have with you.
Having tried several times to take my Z6 & the EM1X with me to work on my bike through central London. I was constantly nervous about damaging my kit, so last week I took the plunge and purchased a Fuji XP130. A Waterproof, shockproof and apparently you can drop it from several feet and the little fellow should still work like a trooper. It produces rather contrasty images which are very well suited to black and white.

View of the Shard.
Four tower blocks, some residential and the others are offices.

So how does a cheap £100 Fuji XP130 perform ?
Much better than you think.

  1. Ah, the ‘tough’ camera. Should last the cycling to work at least. I looked at it a while back, but no viewfinder put me off.
    The zoom is impressive though, and it might well be the best ‘carry-around’ compact for the money. 🙂
    Cheers, Pete.

    1. RE: Viewfinder, your point is valid but at the price point you really cant complain.
      Of course there are quite a few things missing that would help make it a better product
      but hey ho it gets me snapping en route to work, so I enter the office in a Zen like state.
