Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The FinePix JZ500 features a 14-megapixel CCD, a 2.7-inch high-resolution LCD and a Fujinon 10x wide-angle optical zoom lens (28mm-280mm equivalent). Encased in a high-grade brushed aluminum metal body, it's not only well protected from bumps and scrapes, but features a simple, yet elegant design. The JZ500 also has a new mode dial for additional convenience and functionality.

FinePix Highlights

HD Capability
The new J-Series models all offer stunning movies in 720p with sound and high quality stills at 1920 x 1080. Many consumers are happy to enjoy HD movies on their PC, but with the new HD Player (optional extra), which comes equipped with a remote control, families can gather around their home HDTV to enjoy amazingly detailed stills and high resolution movie playback.

Tracking Auto Focus
Previously featured on Fujifilm's DSLR-styled FinePix S1500, the new J-Series models 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 Tracking Auto Focus on and it will track your subject and ensure that you achieve a crisp picture with you subject in the center of the frame in perfect focus.

Face Recognition Technology
For the first time on a Fujifilm digital camera you can identify the people in a picture by name! Fujifilm's Face Recognition Technology gives you the ability to pre-program 8 people into the camera. To do this, you start by taking a picture of the person you want to program into the camera and then tell the camera who that person is (e.g. Mom). You also have the option of inputting the category she belongs to (e.g. friends/family) and the date of her birthday. The next time you go to take a photo of her, the camera will cleverly recognize "Mom" and optimize the settings to ensure that exposure and focus are best suited to her rather than the other people in the picture. This fun technology can recognize up to 5 pre-programmed people on screen at the same time.

In addition, the FinePix JZ500's new Picture Search Tool is able to use the Face Recognition data (name, birthday and category) to help you find and playback your photographs quickly and easily. If you want to scroll through all pictures featuring "Mom" for example, the camera will be able to select them for you for easy viewing.

Pet Detection
For those who enjoy the company of four-legged friends, the FinePix JZ500 comes equipped with Fujifilm's brand new Pet Detection technology, allowing users the ability to detect up to 10 faces of dogs or cats and automatically optimize the focus. The FinePix JZ500 is programmed to recognize 57% of the Fédération Cyno Logique Internationale (FCI) registered dogs, 80% of the Top 20 Dogs in the American Kennel Club (AKC) Ranking and 60% of The Cat Fancier's Association (CFA) breeds. Pet Detection works by matching various dog or cat data of facial parts with patterns to detect the dog or cat being photographed.

Additional Features

  • Scene Recognition Auto (SR AUTO): This mode intelligently 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.
  • Dual Image Stabilization: Long-zoom cameras need stabilization more than any other compact, with handshake and subject movement a particular problem in low light at telephoto range. The FinePix JZ500 reduces blur to a minimum by deploying Picture Stabilization to automatically increase shutter speeds to freeze action, and mechanical CCD sensor shift stabilization to counteract the problems of handshake. By cleverly combining these two, blur is reduced to an absolute minimum.
  • Face Detection and Automatic Red-eye Removal: To provide perfectly exposed and focused portrait shots, each J-Series model is fitted with Fujifilm's latest Face Detection technology which is able to track up to 10 faces simultaneously, at almost any angle to the camera. The system instantly corrects red-eye and then saves both the original and the corrected image file automatically.

I am enjoying this camera very much. It has excellent features at this price point, with easy menus and click wheels to get at them. I particularly liked that you can use the 10x zoom when you are videoing. Suprisingly other cameras I looked at could not.

Here are a few tips. To open the bay that holds the battery and memory card, drag the door forward with your thumb (use the raised dots for a better grip) then you can lift it up. I had trouble transferring longer video clips with the USB cable; instead, put your SDHC memory card in a card reader (I used the Targus Universal 32 in 1 card reader/writer). I missed one tip that is in the manual the first time I read through it: once you press the shutter button down to start recording, you don't need to keep holding it down.

Excellent picture quality. The zoom is amazing and crystal clear. Battery life is great. Picture speed is top of the line, so you don't miss or blur the action.

I recently purchased this camera before going on Pilgrimage to Italy. I was able to get great pictures, including many in the churches without a flash.

It is slim and can easily fit into a pocket or purse pocket. The zoom is great! I'm very happy with this camera!

Nice cam and features but the mode dial which is use to select different shooting modes sits too low and makes it difficult to turn or rotate

Battery life is really short. You can get about 100 films in without turning off the camera before it drains. Make sure you buy an extra battery
