FujiFilm FinePix JV100


The Fujifilm Finepix JV100 is a consumer point and shoot digicam offering HD video and a feature set consistent with most other consumer point and shoot digicams at an extremely low introductory price point.

Editor's Pros & Cons


The camera measures 3.7" by 2.2" by .8" and weighs 3.7 ounces, not including any possible accessories, batteries, or memory cards. It will fit comfortably in most pockets without inconvenience.

The camera captures images with a 12.2 megapixel, 1/2.3" CCD, which it saves to its 24MB of internal memory, to an SD memory card, or to SDHC memory cards. It captures still images using the JPEG format (compressed via Exif 2.2), AVI (containing Motion JPEG format images and sound), and audio in WAVE format. The camera produces images at several resolutions based on aspect ratio: it can capture images at 4000 by 3000 (12M, 4:3 format), 4000 by 2664 (11M, 3:2 format), 4000 by 2248 (9M, 16:9 format), 2816 by 2112 (6M, 4:3 format), 2048 by 1,536 (3M, 4:3 format), 1,920 by 1,080 (2M, 16:9 format), 1,600 by 1,200 (2M, 4:3 format), and 640 by 480 (0.3M, 4:3 format) It captures video at 320 by 240, 640 by 480 and 1280 by 720, with the last allowing the camera to capture HD video.
The camera has a 3x optical zoom lens with a range of F3.2 (wide) to F5.9 (telephoto). The lens' focal length is between f=6.6 and 19.8mm, equivalent to a range of 37 to 111 mm on a 35 mm camera. It offers a digital zoom of up to 6.3x, providing a combined zoom of 18.9x if desired. Aperture settings can be set between F3.2 and F4.3 in Wide and F5.9 and F8.0 in Telephoto. Focus distance from the lens surface can be set in Normal between 2' and infinity, and in Macro can be set to between 3.9" and 2.3' in Wide and 2' and 3.3' in Telephoto.
Sensitivity can be set automatically or to settings equivalent to ISO 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, and 3200, though at ISO 3200 the camera is limited to 3M pixels. Its exposure control is set to 256 zone metering via TTL, and its exposure mode functions via programmed auto exposure.
The camera offers a number of shooting modes, including Portrait, Baby, Smile, Landscape, Panorama, Sport, Night, Night (Tripod), Fireworks, Sunset, Snow, Beach, Party, Flower, and Text. Its mode dial can be set to SR AUTO, AUTO, Natural Light, Natural Light & with Flash, SP1, SP2, Movie, P. It also includes a digital image stabilizer.
The camera features shutter speeds between 1/2000 of a second to 1/4 second in auto mode and 1/2000 of a second to 8 seconds in all other modes. Continuous shooting is available at up to 1.7 fps. The camera also has a 2-10 second delay for self-timed shots.
The camera focuses images either using auto focus or tracking auto focus and can white balance using automatic scene recognition, as well as a variety of presets: Fine, Shade, Fluorescent light (Daylight), Fluorescent light (Warm White), Fluorescent light (Cool White), and Incandescent light are all available settings.
The camera's flash has an effective range in normal mode of 2' to 11.5' (Wide) and 2' to 6.6' (Telephoto) and between 1' and 2.6' in Macro. Flash modes can be configured with red-eye removal off or on and include forced flash, suppressed flash, slow synchro, and several permutations of these features.
The camera has an LCD measuring 2.7" with approximately 96% coverage and 230000 dots.
The camera interfaces with computers and printers via USB 2.0. It outputs video via a combined NTSC/PAL video output and includes an NP-45A lithium ion battery.


High ISO shots have serious issues with noise.

The camera, given its low cost, is not particularly durable and can develop issues with powering on and other systems if dropped.
