"Perfect for holidays, family rough and tumble and active outdoor pursuits, the Fujifilm FinePix XP30 is a sleek camera with a hidden secret – a rugged exterior to protect your precious pictures," reads Fujifilm's launch press release.

"Freeze proof to minus 10°C, this rugged snapper is ideal for mountain top snapping. It's also waterproof to five metres, making it perfect for underwater photography or surviving water accidents.

"The XP30 is shockproof to 1.5m withstanding small drops and scrapes. And, you won't have to worry about getting sand in it either as the camera is both sand and dustproof. "

Specs-wise the new Fujifilm camera has a 5x, wide-angle, zoom lens, 14 megapixel resolution and a decent range of features, plus it can take HD video footage at 720p at 30 frames per second.
