FujiFilm FinePix JX280 Preview

By

fuji_jx280_550.jpgThe first JX-series model we've seen from FujiFilm, the FinePix JX280 is an affordable compact digicam that is designed for those looking for an inexpensive camera for their family or teenagers. While the JX280 is light on your wallet, it's not light on features. With 14-megapixels, a 2.7-inch LCD, 720p HD video recording, and a 5x optical zoom with wide viewing angle, the JX280 is packed with appealing specifications.

Designed with those in mind who want to simply point and shoot, the JX280 is loaded with user friendly exposure options, like SR (Scene Recognition) Auto, Tracking AF, and Face Detection with automatic red-eye removal. It even features a durable metal body, which is surprising when you consider it's price tag.


FujiFilm FinePix JX280 key features:
  • 14-Megapixel CCD imager for 4288x3216 pixel images
  • Fujinon 5x optical zoom covers 28-140mm (35mm equiv.)
  • Digital Image Stabilization uses high ISO to help reduce blur in low light
  • 2.7-inch LCD w/230K pixels and 96% frame coverage
  • Movie Mode @ 1280x720, 640x480 or 320x240 with audio
  • SR Auto (Scene Recognition Auto), Program AE and 19 Scene modes (including Motion Panorama)
  • Face, Smile, and Blink Detection
  • ~24MB of internal flash memory
  • Uses removable SD/SDHC memory cards
  • Powered by Li-ion battery pack
The FinePix JX280 will be available in late August for $149.95 US.
