22 Reasons For

Good Size

Two Fujifilm Finepix XP170 owners said in their reviews that it was compact.

Good Brand

Waterproof cameras manufactured by Fujifilm have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all digital cameras (not just waterproof cameras) and found that Fujifilm also has good ratings across its entire range.

Reasonably Priced

One Fujifilm Finepix XP170 owner who reviewed this digital camera thought it was cheap. Pocket-Lint.com said on expert website Pocket Lint “This would be forgivable if it was a budget model, much like its pred” in their review of this digital camera.

Robust

Four people who reviewed it considered that it was strong and durable. Expert website Ephotozine.com said in their review of this digital camera “The Fujifilm FinePix XP170 is a brand new rugged compact camera which is an alternative to the”.

Nice Design

One Fujifilm Finepix XP170 owner concluded that it was good looking. Digitalcamerareview.com wrote in their Fujifilm Finepix XP170 review “The XP170 is neither a particularly compact nor an especially stylish digicam - rather it sports a kind of blocky utilitarian industrial look” yet they only gave it a score of 50 out of 100.

Supports Video Recording

The Finepix XP170 supports video recording, which is unusual. Most of the other digital cameras of a similar spec and age to the Finepix XP170 do not support video recording.

We compared all the other cameras which support video recording to this camera and we think the Olympus TG-620[plb_383816_price], the SeaLife DC1400 Pro[plb_1827508_price], and the Polaroid IE090[plb_2957341_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
