We continue to explore new Fujifilm digital cameras of 2010 line-up belonging to J-series of ultra compacts. Fuji FinePix JV150 features an effective resolution of 14 megapixels, 5x optical zoom, 2.7-inch LCD screen and HD movie capture.
There’s no optical image stabilizer in the lens so you have to rely on the camera’s high ISO capabilities in order to combat blur in your images. The lens is not very light-sensitive with f-numbers starting with f/3.2 at a wide end. Neither it is wide-angle: it has 37-111mm focal length equivalent.
The JV150 offers point-and-shoot operation suitable for those who would like to get images without bothering about camera settings. So there’s a Scene Recognition Auto technology in the camera, which automatically adjusts necessary parameters to achieve the best shot possible.
There’re also 19 creative scene modes in the camera, namely Natural Light, Natural Light with Flash, Portrait, Baby, Smile, Landscape, Panorama, Sport, Night, Night (Tripod), Fireworks, Sunset, Snow, Beach, Party, Flower, Party, Flower, and Text, which makes snapping convenient and easy in any shooting situation.
The JV150 also offers all the necessary functions for quality portrait shots: Face Detection, Smile & Blink Detection and Tracking AF. The latter helps track moving subjects and keep them in focus until you press the shutter button.
