Fujifilm FinePix JZ200 and FinePix JZ100: Compact zoom technology at the press of a button

Fujifilm is delighted to introduce two new members to its JZ long-zoom compact family: the FinePix JZ200 and FinePix JZ100.

05.01.2012

Both models offer Fujifilm’s superb imaging quality to users looking for a great everyday camera with the ability to capture a wide range of subjects.

FinePix JZ200 - 16MP, 8x Optical Zoom, 2.7 inch LCD
FinePix JZ100 - 14MP, 8x Optical Zoom, 2.7 inch LCD

Up close and personal
Sitting at the heart of both these cameras is a powerful 8x Fujinon lens offering a 25-250mm focal range equivalent to a 35mm camera. The wide-ranging lens enables users to capture everything from beautiful wide-angle shots to stunning images of distant objects. At the other end of the scale, both cameras offer a close-focusing distance of 5cm, which enables users to shoot beautiful macro images that fill the frame with detail and vibrant colours.

The sensors inside these compact cameras have been designed to work perfectly with the Fujinon optics. The FinePix JZ200 offers a 16 mega pixel CCD sensor, and the entry-level FinePix JZ100 has 14 megapixels of imaging power – both perfectly capable of producing premium quality images and movies. Even reviewing stills and movie in-camera is enjoyable, thanks to the LCD screens offered by both cameras as they have been redesigned for increased brightness over previous models in the J series.

A helping hand
The FinePix JZ200 and FinePix JZ100 are ideal cameras for families looking for all-round compacts, and the imaging technology employed by both models will help users of all abilities capture pictures to be proud of.

The Scene Recognition (SR) Auto mode automatically assesses the scene and selects the optimal settings to capture the scene in perfect detail. Scenes that can be automatically recognis ed by both cameras are Portrait, Landscape, Night, Macro, Night Portrait and Backlit Portrait – covering a huge range of possible shooting scenarios.

When shooting in low-light situations, both cameras keep on capturing top-quality shots thanks to the inbuilt high ISO sensitivity (up to ISO 3200*1) and Optical Image Stabilisation.
For portraits, Fujifilm’s Face Detection can capture up to nine faces in a single scene, making these compacts ideal for large groups or families – and as both cameras have been optimised to offer improved start-up times and users will never miss capturing images of their unforgettable moments.

*1 ISO 3200 is effective in S mode.

Creative and stylish
In addition to the exciting possibilities offered when capturing still images on the FinePix JZ200 and FinePix JZ100, users can also use these compacts to shoot movie in 720p HD. A dedicated movie recording button on both compacts ensures users can quickly start capturing movie at a moment’s notice – and as everything’s captured in HD, both still images and movies can be reviewed on an HD ready television.

When it comes to portability, these super-slim metal body compacts will easily slip into pockets and are comfortable to hold for long shooting sessions. Both the JZ200 and JZ100 are available in five colours: Black, Silver, Pink, Red and Blue to ensure that all tastes are catered for.
