FinePix JV and JX cameras: Quality, Features and Style in a durable metal body
Mississauga, ON – Fujifilm is thrilled to announce the introduction of the FinePix JV100 and JX250, two new models that will offer consumers cutting edge style and advanced technology with the ability to shoot and enjoy images in High Definition. All this, in a slender 18.5mm sculpted metal body for a reasonable price.
Users have the choice between two resolutions, the FinePix JV100 features a 12 megapixel sensor and the JX250 boasts a high resolution 14 megapixel sensor.
Whichever camera is chosen, by matching a high resolution sensor and top quality Fujinon optics, Fujifilm have ensured that the cameras will deliver sharp and clear images, perfect to enlarge on screen or in print without compromising the image quality.
Razor sharp Fujinon Zoom lens
The new JV model (JV100) features a high-quality Fujinon 3x optical zoom (37-111mm equivalent) whereas the JX250 has a Fujinon 5X 28mm wide-angle optical zoom lens. Both models have Digital Image Stabilization to ensure image blurring is kept to a minimum.
High Definition with High Specification
Fujifilm has introduced HD across its entire lineup and with 720p HD image and video capture the new JV and JX cameras will produce stunning, detailed images that can be enjoyed in glorious High Definition on any HD ready television* or PC.
*To connect to an HD-ready TV, you will need a HD Card Reader and HDMI cable (optional extras)./p>
Intelligent Scene Recognition
Intelligent Scene Recognition Auto (SR AUTO) detects the scene type you are shooting and optimizes the camera’s focus, exposure and white balance, so whether you’re photographing flowers or a holiday landscape, you will get flawless photos at the press of a button.
For extra versatility try Panorama Shooting Mode which allows you to stitch three photos together to create a stunning panoramic image, so you can really get really creative.
Both of the J-Series cameras feature Smile Detection that works with Fujifilm’s highly-acclaimed Face Detection technology with Auto Red Eye Removal to detect smiles on faces AND to automatically remove any red eyes if needed.
Another new feature on both cameras is Blink Detection that warns you if you have captured an image with people blinking, so you can re-shoot if necessary.
New Stylish Metal Body
The new JV and JX cameras have been upgraded to a high-quality metal body and its soft, curved edges give it a sculpted, sophisticated look. Encased in a high-grade brushed aluminium metal body, the new J Series are not only well protected from bumps and scrapes, but give a simple, yet elegant design.
In addition, with high sensitivity settings (to ISO 3200 at 3MP resolution) and Digital Image Stabilization, you will get crisp, detailed, noise-free images even when shooting in challenging low-light conditions.
Previously featured on the S-Series cameras, the JV and JX series feature Tracking Auto Focus which is perfect for when you need to take a picture of a moving subject and can’t keep your subject in the frame. Just switch it on and it will track your subject and ensure that you achieve a crisp picture with your subject in the centre of the frame in perfect focus.
Auto Picture Rotation (JX250 only)
It’s so annoying when you have to continually adjust your camera to view portrait and landscape shots. The new JX250 fixes this problem by ensuring your photos are always rotated the correct way in playback. Enjoy your pictures on the large 2.7-inch LCD and whichever way you are holding the camera, the image will rotate on the screen for you.
