The interchangeable-lens GX850 body houses a 16-MP Live MOS sensor. The ISO range is 200-25,600, which can be extended downward to 100.

As smartphones become every more powerful, the lure of digital point and shoots and so-called bridge cameras has lessened.

While some other camera makers give them names that hint at that market segment, Fujifilm has kept with its FinePix monikor.

The Fujifilm FinePix XP120 lacks the rugged look that other camera makers provide, such as rubberized exteriors, but the specs show that this camera should be able to handle most things that come its way.
