LCD and Viewfinder
Fujifilm XP120 has a Fixed Type 3″ LCD screen with a resolution of 920k dots. Both the screen size and the screen resolution is up to the standards of this class.
XP120 doesn't have a viewfinder and no option for external viewfinder. Lack of a viewfinder can be problematic especially under strong light where visibility of LCD screens goes down dramatically. If you need a Compact camera with a built-in viewfinder in a similar price range, consider Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50 (Lumix DMC-TZ70) (Compare) or Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX80 (Compare). If the price is not an issue, take a look at our Top Rated Cameras with Viewfinders.

Fujifilm XP120 can shoot continuously at max speed of 10.0 fps and has max shutter speed of 1/2000 sec.
Unfortunately XP120 doesn't have an external flash shoe so you are limited with the built-in flash.
Fujifilm XP120 features a Contrast Detection autofocusing system.

where it intelligently detects the faces in the frame and locks the focus automatically.

Connectivity and Storage
Fujifilm XP120 features built-in wireless (Wi-Fi) connectivity ( 802.11b/g/n) which lets you transfer your photos directly to compatible devices without any physical connection.One other feature that we like is the ability to use our smartphone as a remote to control our XP120. You can change camera settings, release shutter, view LCD screen and tranfer files using remote control app.
You can connect XP120 to compatible devices via its HDMI port or USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/sec) port.
Battery Fujifilm XP120 is powered by a proprietary battery which provides a shooting life of 210 according to CIPA standards.
Considering that the average battery life of Compact type cameras is 255 shots, Fujifilm XP120 has a short battery life for its class so we strongly recommend XP120 owners to buy some extra batteries.
