Product Information

The Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 boasts a high-quality metal body and its soft, curved edges give it a sophisticated look - this elegant digital camera producing high quality images while being very easy to use.
Getting you closer to the action, it features a high-quality Fujinon 10x optical zoom with 28mm wide-angle lens, plus there’s Digital Image Stabilisation to ensure image blurring is kept to a minimum. Matching a high resolution 14 megapixel sensor and top quality Fujinon optics, this camera delivers sharp and clear images, perfect to enlarge on screen or in print without compromising the image quality.

In addition, with high sensitivity settings (to ISO 1600 at full resolution and ISO 3200 at 3MP), you will be guaranteed crisp, detailed, low noise images even when shooting in challenging low-light conditions. With HD image and video capture the JZ500 will produce stunning, detailed images that can be enjoyed in glorious High Definition on any HD ready television or PC.

Scene Recognition Auto (SR AUTO) intelligently detects the scene type you are shooting and optimises 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. Face Recognition technology gives you the ability to pre-programme eight people into the camera. The next time you take a photo with them in the camera will recognise them and optimise the settings to ensure that exposure and focus are best suited to her rather than the other people in the frame.

Cats and dogs are a commonly photographed subject and with this in mind The Fujifilm has developed a new Pet Detection function to ensure perfect pictures of your cat or dog. Much like Face Detection technology, Pet Detection can recognise cats’ and dogs’ faces and optimises focus and exposure. Plus, there’s an Auto Shutter Release function that automatically takes a photo when your four-legged friend looks at the camera, so you don’t miss that precious shot.

Photos are all too often spoilt by people blinking or grimacing. Smile & shoot Mode works with Fujifilm’s highly-acclaimed Face Detection technology to detect smiles on faces: it will not take a picture until it detects a smile, so you’re guaranteed happy shots every time. Another new feature is Blink Detection warns you if you have captured an image with people blinking, so you can re-shoot if necessary.

The JZ500 also features Targeting AF 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 Targeting AF 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.

For extra versatility try Panoramic Shooting Mode which allows you to stitch three photos together to create a stunning panoramic image. And, for those occasions when stills just don’t do a moment justice, the JZ500 features HD Movie Mode with sound which lets you record those precious memories and relive them time and time again.

A Picture Search tool allows you to find photos quickly and easily. You can search by whichever Scene mode the photo was taken, e.g. all portrait pictures or macro images. A time saving device which means that you will no longer have to waste time searching through all your photos to find the one you are looking for.
