For style, functionality and affordability look no further than the FinePix JZ500. This smart snapper has all the technology you need to take great photos in a simple, point-and-shoot package. With its smooth sculpted curves and high-quality metal body, the JZ500 packs away a massive 10x Fujinon zoom but is still small enough to slip in to a pocket or bag, making it the perfect companion for days out with family and friends.
The JZ500's slender shell hides
a massive 10x zoom range
Fujinon 10x Optical Zoom & 14 Megapixels
The combination of a high precision Fujinon Lens and astounding 14 megapixel resolution will reveal impressive picture quality. The versatile 10x zoom is tucked away in the camera's delicate frame meaning you're ready to shoot wide-angle vistas or dramatic close-up shots from a pocketable package. Fujinon optics are renowned by professionals worldwide, used in industries including broadcast and aerospace, so you can be sure the Fujinon brand is a mark of quality.
Effective Anti-blur Technology
The JZ500 features Fujifilm's highly effective Dual Image Stabilisation system to combat against blurred images. By combining high ISO sensitivity and CCD-shift technology this camera is able to minimise blur often caused by camera shake and subject movement, even when shooting at the full 10x zoom.
Good Low-light Performer
Photos taken in low light are often the most disappointing. The JZ500 features impressive ISO sensitivity to 3200* meaning it is ultra-sensitive in dim conditions and able to record impressive detail and true to life colours with minimal noise. You can also select the ISO settings manually, so if it's a nice, bright sunny day you can select a low ISO (e.g. 100), or if conditions are dark, high ISO settings will be better at picking up detail.
*Number of recorded pixels is limited to maximum 3 megapixels. At full resolution sensitivity is limited to a maximum ISO1600.
Pet friendly Pet Detection technology
can detect cats and dogs in a scene and
optimises focus and exposure
HDTV-Compatible Photos & Video
Capture both photos and movies (720p) in HD format and bring your photos to life. The FinePix JZ500 lets you discover the impact of full-screen HDTV image display in the comfort of your own home.
*Optional HD Player HDP-L1 is required to view photos and movies on HDTVs.
Perfect Pet Pictures
Pet Detection is great for those who love to capture snaps of their four-legged friends. Similar to Face Detection, Pet Detection can identify dogs' and cats' faces in a frame and optimises focus and exposure, giving you perfect portraits of your pets. There's also an Auto Release function which automatically takes a photos as soon as your furry friend looks at the camera, ensuring you don't miss that precious shot.
*Up to 10 dog or cat faces at a time. Cannot detect pet faces in profile or both dogs and cats in the same scene.
This clever camera can recognise faces in the frame by name. All you have to do is register up to eight of your favourite people e.g. 'Mum' and the JZ500 will recognise that person from that point on and optimises focus and exposure for that person. Face Recognition also lets you group and sort your photos by your registered faces - a great time saver when you want to show someone that one photo.
Tracking AF 'locks on' to a
moving subject keeping it in focus
Intelligent Scene Detection Technology
The FinePix JZ500 can detect up to six commonly photographed scenes and optimises focus, exposure and white balance to suit the scene being shot. The scenes it can recognise are: Portrait, Landscape, Night, Macro, Night Portrait, Backlit Portrait. Perfect pictures every time.
Tracking Auto Focus
Ideal when photographing fast moving subjects or action shots, Tracking AF will 'lock on' to moving subjects. Half press the shutter button and Tracking AF will track the subject and keep it in focus. As soon as you fully press the shutter button you will capture a photo with the subject perfectly in focus.
