“I graduated from Polytechnic and I’m now doing freelance modelling and events hosting as well as acting – I’ve been acting for a number of years and have appeared in a number of shows like Children’s Crisis on Toggle and the new mandarin drama Babies on Board that just started on Channel 8 and Toggle. I also really like to travel and do travel logs, and I’ve taken a lot of pictures for my blog and instagram but I have an old Samsung digital camera that I bought at a great discount (found out later it was because Samsung stopped making cameras!). I also tend to use my smartphone because I always have it with me. I made one attempt to make a Vlog of a trip, but I took so many video clips that it then actually took me months to sort through everything and create a video!
It’s a bit funny that you passed me this Fujifilm FinePix XP130 now because just a couple of weeks ago I was paragliding and scuba diving in Antalya, Turkey! A tough camera like this would have been really great especially as I could have strapped it to my wrist and used it during the paragliding session as the view was awesome! I like how you can sync the camera to automatically transfer images via Bluetooth to my phone as I’m just started ramping up my social media accounts, and I could have also taken it scuba diving because the sea was a beautiful clear blue! Ah, and since it can stand sub-zero temperatures, well, I was actually in Hokkaido Japan in early March and it was really cold and snowing heavily! Plus my not only did my camera lens go all foggy but my phone kept running out of battery pretty fast!” – @siowjiamin
Fujifilm FinePix XP130
If you like travelling and outdoor adventures like our NXT Angel Jia Min, then there’s going to be times when a tough camera like the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 will come in handy to capture that unexpected underwater encounter or that snowman you made in New Zealand. This pocketable little camera comes in at 207g and captures 16.4 Megapixel images and Full-HD 1080@60p movies with a 5x optical zoom, and impressively can shoot a 10 frame burst of large images in just a second! The XP130 is also waterproof down to 20m, built to withstand up to 1.75m drops and will still work in -10°C weather!
