Highly Powerful, Yet Sleek and Slim

Fujifilm FinePix JX500 The Fujifilm FinePix JX500 Digital Camera is a sleek and slim, yet highly powerful camera featuring a 14MP sensor and 5x zoom lens. The 26-130mm (35mm equivalent) lens allows you to capture a wide breadth of scenes from group photos to closely cropped portraits. This is further aided by a highly sensitive 3200 ISO rating and digital image stabilization for greater control and sharper results when shooting in low light conditions. For further ease in producing excellent results, you can employ several scene recognition modes-Portrait, Landscape, Night, Macro, Night Portrait, and Backlit Portrait-for automatically selecting the appropriate camera settings based on the conditions. Face Detection, Blink Detection, and Smile & Shoot modes are also available to ensure your portraits and group photos turn out as expected and in the most flattering light. In addition to still photos, this camera is also capable of capturing full HD 720p video.

You can view your results on the rear 2.7" LCD after recording your files to an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card. If you'd like to expedite the process of sharing your photos on Facebook or YouTube, you can begin tagging and selecting the photos you'd like to upload directly in the camera. Once you plug the camera into your computer, the entire uploading process is automatic and reflects your selections and edits made in camera. Jan 5, 2012
