Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 review

 

Unfortunately, the Fujifilm FinePix JZ500's performance was also comparatively anaemic. Its shortcomings aren't entirely surprising: This model is Fujifilm's bargain pocket megazoom for 2010, playing second string to the higher-end FinePix F80EXR.

The Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 is an also-ran among the big players in the pocket megazoom class, but it has a bigger, more-powerful sibling. For Fujifilm fans pining for a pocket megazoom, we suggest holding out for the FinePix F80EXR, which boasts the...

Fujifilm Finepix JZ500 Review

 

Fujifilm Finepix JZ500 comes with an affordable price tag and a full specification including 10x optical zoom and a 2.7in large LCD screen. But how does it compare to other entry-level compact...

Low price, large zoom, big screen

Sluggish performance, overall poor image quality

On the face of it, the Fujifilm Finepix JZ500 performs ok for a camera of that price level. However, the market is constantly developing with better cameras available at lower prices. With this in mind, it really is difficult to be considerate towards...

Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 digital camera

 

Fujifilm's JZ500 is pocket-friendly but doesn't have the features or the performance to match higher-priced competitors.

Unique pet-detection mode, very compact for a high-zoom camera

Lacklustre photo and video quality, noisy zoom motors, bad autofocus during video capture

More pocket-friendly than other compact megazooms, Fujifilm's FinePix JZ500 doesn't have the features or the performance to match higher-priced competitors.

Fujifilm FinePix JZ500

 

The Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 ($250 as of June 1, 2010) is the most pocketable pocket megazoom in our latest test group, thanks to a curvy 1-inch-deep body that's significantly slimmer than any of the other cameras we reviewed.

Unique pet-detection mode ; Very compact for a high-zoom camera

Lackluster photo and video quality ; Noisy zoom motors ; Bad autofocus during video capture

More pocket-friendly than other compact megazooms, Fujifilm’s FinePix JZ500 doesn't have the features or the performance to match higher-priced competitors.

Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 review

 

It seems like Fujifilm tried very hard to offer something for almost everyone in its 2010 camera lineup. It's not surprising that it includes two 10x zoom pocket cameras priced to move at $199.95 and $249.95--the FinePix JZ300 and JZ500, respectively....

Nicely designed pocketable wide-angle compact with a 10x zoom; very good features for price.

Mixed photo quality; questionable extra features.

Fujifilm offers a very good value with the compact megazoom FinePix JZ500, though you'll have to be a little forgiving of its photos.

Fujifilm offers very good value with the compact superzoom FinePix JZ500, though you'll have to be a little forgiving of its photos.

Nicely designed, and fits in your pocket, wide-angle compact with a 10x zoom ; Very good features for price

Mixed photo quality ; Questionable extra features

Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 Review

 

The Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 is a new ultra-compact digital camera with a 14 megapixel CCD sensor, a 2.7 inch LCD screen and a 10x optical zoom lens (28-280mm focal length). For movie makers the JZ500 has the must-have feature of 2010, high-definition...

It may not have the most features or best image quality, but the new Fujifilm JZ500 is still a compelling travel-zoom camera, particularly for point-and-shoot beginners. Image quality isn't the JZ500's strongest suit, with visible noise at ISO 400...

Review: Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 pocket camera

 

More pocket-friendly than other compact megazooms, Fujifilm's FinePix JZ500 doesn't have the features or the performance to match higher-priced competitors.

In the Macworld Lab's subjective evaluations for image and video quality, the 14.1-megapixel JZ500 turned in a disappointing score of Fair. Our jury noted that sample images taken with the FinePix JZ500 were murky and soft, posting well-below-average...
