TOKYO, May 9 (UPI) -- Japanese camera company Fujifilm says its latest digital camera will let users instantly share pictures with family and friends using built-in WiFi.

With the press of a button the FinePix XP170 can wirelessly send photos to an iPhone, iPad or Android device without the need for cables, allthingsd.com reported Wednesday.

Once uploaded to a phone or tablet, a Fujifilm app can send the images to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social networking Web sites.

Fujifilm says the 14-megapixel XP170, featuring a 360-degree panorama mode, face detection, 1080p HD video and a 2.7-inch LCD screen, is waterproof up to 33 feet.

It can also stand the shock of being dropped from 6.5 feet and can operate in temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit, the company said.

The XP170 is expected to be available in June at a cost of $279.95.
