Fujifilm FinePix XP140 Performance

The performance section is where we look at the image quality performance of the camera. Additional sample photos and product shots are available in the Equipment Database, where you can add your own review, photos and product ratings.



Fujifilm FinePix XP140 Sample Photos

Sample Photos - Colours are accurate and vibrant, with good rendition of skin tones. The camera did struggle to pick out some detail in very dark and light areas of the image, and sometimes struggled to focus on close-up subjects, choosing instead to focus on the background. There is a 9cm closest focusing distance, which can make it awkward to get really close shots. Details are a little soft when looking closely at the captures - but for sharing online they should be fine.

Lens Performance - Some flare and chromatic aberration is present when shooting into the sun - especially at the edges of the frame, where detail drops. When shooting in bright situations the camera likes to over darken the scene you're looking at - so it's sometimes necessary to half-press the shutter in a darker area of the image and the re-compose to get a better exposure. 



Fujifilm FinePix XP140 ISO test images

ISO Noise Performance - ISO100-12800 is available. ISO100-800 produce usable images with a fair amount of detail. ISO1600-12800 sees a drop in detail and images become very noisy as the ISO speed increases. 


Fujifilm FinePix XP140 White-balance test images

White Balance Performance - Auto White Balance (AWB) performs well under tungsten lighting, with the tungsten preset giving a very warm result. AWB performs well under fluorescent lights, with the fluorescent preset giving a cooler colour cast and a much more accurate result.



Fujifilm FinePix XP140 Digital filters

Digital Filters - There are a number of filters available including a few film simulation modes. It's a little clunky changing through these modes, as you need to go back into the menu, select 'scene mode' and then choose the one you want each time, there's no shortcut.

Panorama mode - The camera features an automatic panoramic mode, where you simply press the shutter release button and pan the camera from one side to the other. The resulting image is well stitched but isn't the sharpest and suffered from flare. Compared to some panorama modes, the resolution isn't particularly impressive. 


Video - The camera is equipped with 4K video mode, but this is only 15 frames per second which makes video capture in this mode juddery and slow. There are lower resolution video modes available with higher frame rates which give smoother results. With face-detection focus switched on, and continuous AF active in video mode, the camera was easily confused (trying to focus on people) and lost focus during recording, so switching to single AF ensured focus was correct for the next video we recorded. 


Underwater video - The camera has struggled in these low-light conditions to produce a smooth video.
