    Both are good, though the Fuji xp60 has better specifications - a 1080 movie mode vs 720 for the TS25 and a CMOS sensor vs a CCD sensor for the TS25.

    However for a bit more money you can step up to the Nikon AW110 or the Panasonic TS5, which have better image quality.

    Here are some sample pics from the XP60, the TS25, the AW110 and the TS5:

    I'm withdrawing my recommendation of the Nikon AW110. From what I've been reading, while the camera takes excellent pictures and movies there have been many, many complaints of water leakage, which Nikon has done nothing about.

    Thanks.

    There doesn't seem to be examples of the pictures. Just shows up as flickr search.

    Bewteen the AW110 & the TS5, which is better?

    Maybe you have to be a member of Flickr - I don't know.

    The AW110 takes nicer looking pictures but lots of folks report problems with leakage, so I wouldn't buy it.
    The black version of the TS5 is for sale at Amazon for under $250 - definitely worth considering.
