Scene Recognition Auto mode intelligently detects your scene type and shooting conditions, and is able to optimise the camera's focus, exposure and white balance to achieve perfect results. So whether you're photographing a stunning outdoor scene or the school sports day, you will get flawless photos at the press of a button. Or if you prefer you can choose one of 21 pre-programmed scene modes for extra control.

Can't find what you're looking for?

If you have ever struggled to find the photo you are looking for on your camera, then this will be your saving grace. All FinePix cameras benefit from a Picture Search feature which allows you to find all images taken in a particular scene mode (e.g. time and date) ensuring it is much faster to navigate through the photos on your camera to find the one you are after.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good wee camera, crap in-box manual, no SD card. 15 Jun 2011
Colour Name:Black
My boyfriend bought me this camera as a birthday present back in April and it arrived middle of May. Really handy little camera but it's definitely a budget one, photo quality is good though, haven't tested the HD video function yet.

My original review was whining about not being able to get the photos off it but that's because it doesn't mount as an external drive like most cameras do in Mac OSX, you have to open Image Capture and it shows up as a device - easy (once you realise it). So I humbly eat my own words about that.

Had the same issue with the CD as the first review on this camera, it won't load on any computer I've tried it on (Windows, RedHat Linux and Mac OSX). Tried downloading the FinePixViewer software for Mac OSX off the FujiFilm website and the installer crashes as soon as it starts trying to install the software.

Manual that came with the camera was useless, just a basic overview of the camera, no helpful info at all. The manual I downloaded off the FujiFilm website is better so I'd definitely recommend downloading that.

What comes with it:
Comes with a USB cable to plug into your computer, batteries, a coaster CD and a manual.
Same as the other review, no SD card came with the camera so pilfered a spare one from my other camera. No case of any kind either so had to buy one from a camera shop (but that's normal). Batteries last ages though, so far I'm still using the pair that came with the camera so that's really good.

The panoramic feature is nice, it pieces three photos together and I've gotten some cracking shots from the top of some hills and at the zoo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good upgrade 13 Oct 2011
By Bob J
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
As I already own a Fujifilm A170 this was a logical upgrade, from 10.2 to 16Mp. What I didn't realise is that there are so many new settings to play with, including a fully automatic scene recognition function!
As with most compact toys these days, the manual comes on a CD rom and online but then lets face it - a hard copy of the manual would be bigger than the camera! The internal memory is also negligible but again, as this is an upgrade to an existing unit I already have a couple of SD cards anyway. On full auto highest resolution a 4Gb card gets you over 500 shots, plenty for the average point-and-shoot photographer's day, and you can always delete shots you don't like on the spot.
As the AV250 is so similar to my previous camera I didn't bother reading any of the blurb, just got it out of the box, checked it over and got down to using it right away. Easy!
As with my previous Fuji, this is a joy to use. It's compact and lightweight but fits nicely into the hands and is quick to turn on and use if you see a photo-op - auto focus means you don't have to mess about twisting lenses to get the perfect shot. Video is also good, shooting at 720P HD you can get some very nice movie clips, length depending on the size of your memory card.
If I had to have a moan about this machine, the only thing I can think of is that the high-gloss black finish tends to show your fingerprints, so I tended to wipe it more than the old (silver) one.
All in all, a very good camera and at the price (I paid £60) an absolute bargain.
Recommended as a high quality back-up to a DSLR for the serious snapper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grandad's present. 18 Feb 2012
Colour Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
Bought this as a 'simple' dig for Grandad. He reckons he is getting on well with it but we haven't seen any evidence as yet. My play with it on Christmas day showed it to be a nice easy little camera excellent as a point and shoot. With all things a proper printed manual would have been nice. I am waiting for the dreaded phone call where he will have changed some setting somewhere and the camera is behaving in an 'unexpected' way but that's folks for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fujifilm FinePix AV250 12 Jan 2012
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
This was purchased as a stocking filler but could have been given as the main event without appearing to be a stingy gift. For its price and size it is simply an amazing camera. It easily fits into any pocket or bag, making possible any spur-of-the-moment shots. I've lost count of the times when unexpected opportunities have presented themselves and I've wished I'd had room to have my (much larger) camera with me. This camera does everything one costing at least 10 times the price can do and is ideal for everyday opportunistic snaps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 5 Feb 2012
Colour Name:Pink|Verified Purchase
This camera was my first camera, i cant fault it! the colour is gorgeous and the settings are easy to adjust. I havent found another camera which beats it. The price i got it for was a bargain too! I always carry it round with me incase i need it then i have it and it will automatically change to the setting i need so i dont have to keep changing the settings. Very impressed with this camera. My batteries which came with the camera did run out by 2 weeks, however i did use it every day. but batteries are easily replaced and havent run out since. Would reccommend it to anyone wanting to buy a camera.
