expiredFujifilm’s FinePix waterproof camera offers 5x zoom & 1080p recording for $79 (Refurb, Orig. $180)

Focus Camera is offering the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 Waterproof Rugged Digital Camera for $79 shipped in certified refurbished condition when you use the code FUJI20 at checkout. Originally $180, it still fetches as much at Best Buy and this is one of the best prices we’ve tracked. This is a great alternative to GoPro, as it’s both more budget-friendly and easier to use. The camera shoots 1080p 60FPS video and 16.4-megapixel images, and unlike other action cameras, it offers up to 5x optical zoom (with 10x digital) for close-up shots. Though GoPro does offer higher quality images, it’s at a far higher cost. This camera is waterproof to 60-feet, making it the perfect diving companion. Ships with a 90-day warranty. Rated 4.5/5 stars.

Many have said that Canon has been dragging their feet when it came to more budget-friendly 4K cameras. The company has had models like the 1DX II and 5D MK IV for a few years, but when it comes to consumer-level offerings, the choices have been few and far between. There’s the EOS R which comes in at $2,299 and the EOS M50 at $649, but there’s been no middle ground until now. In comes the Canon EOS RP, which features 4K recording, a full-frame sensor, and Canon’s legendary color science at a competition-shattering price of $1,299.

With a 26.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 8 image processor, the EOS RP is built to perform and provide users with high-quality imagery. The EOS RP is smaller than Canon’s Rebel T7i and weighs less than a 500ml bottle of water. All of this and more could make the EOS RP a must-have camera in 2019.

Update 1/17 @ 2:22 PM: Pre-orders are now open at both Amazon or B&H.

Sony has long been the king of the mirrorless camera industry. From the company’s highly-rated Alpha A7 line to the more budget-friendly prosumer a6xxx line, Sony has reigned king for the past few years. Now, the Sony just announced its a6400 camera with real-time eye autofocus and tracking, the “world’s fastest autofocus,” and even a flip-up screen, something we’ve yet to see on anything but Sony’s RX lineup of cameras.

The a6400 features a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor and the company’s acclaimed autofocusing technology. Pair that with the first flip-up touchscreen Sony has put on its mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, stellar 4K recording, and amazing autofocus, and the a6400 is going to be the camera to beat.
