Fujifilm XP30 gets GPS, geotagging, 14MP sensor

Fujifilm will show off an evolutionary model of its ruggedized and waterproof XP10 point-and-shoot camera with the XP30 at this week's CES show. The older camera's exterior dimensions remain intact, though a new 14-megapixel sensor (versus 12) and 720p video recording capability are new. Like the X10, it can withstand sumbersion in up to 10 feet of water, drops from up to three feet and 14F temperatures.

The GPS will add location data to each photo and on a regular basis, letting users make a map. The camera otherwise gets image stabilization, a 2.7-inch LCD and a reinforced body. An XP20 will also soon be added, mirroring the same specs other than the GPS sensor. Whether or not it will replace the XP10 with its lower-grade sensor remains to be seen.

Both will be available in green, orange, blue, black and grey when they ship. The XP30 arrives later in January, with the XP20 about a month behind. Pricing is expected to come in at $240 and $200, respectively.
