Essentially the same camera as the XP150 but with wireless, the XP170 features the same waterproof (33ft) and durability (6.5ft) ratings as its predecessor. The XP150 is a very recent model so we're a bit confused by the necessity for yet another waterproof FinePix, yet here it is all the same. Now you can wirelessly transfer your underwater pool photos to your cell phone, but it looks like image quality is likely unchanged from the XP150, which was generally outperformed by the competition. Reviews have also noted poor autofocus and lots of trouble getting wireless to work properly. This one's a pass.
