The 14 Megapixel Fujifilm FinePix JX-500 offers 5x optical zoom and HD movies all in a smart body that has a metal front cover and ergonomic controls.
5x Optical Zoom
The Fujinon 5x zoom lens in this camera covers the equivalent of 26-130mm on a traditional 35mm camera. This includes a generous wide angle setting allowing you to get everyone or everything in your frame without having to take a hike backwards.
Large LCD Monitor
The 2.7" LCD screen on the JX500 has been redesigned for better viewing in sunlight.
HD Movie Recording
Record your movie clips in 720p HD quality at 30frames per second for smooth moving action. There is even a dedicated movie record button so you can easily start recording any time, any place. As a bonus you can also view still images in Full 1080p HD quality.
In this mode you simply press and hold the shutter while panning around. The camera will automatically stitch your images together into a striking panoramic view.
The Scene Recognition Auto (SR Auto) mode makes an informed choice based on what the camera sees, on which scene mode is most appropriate. The options include night modes, portraits and backlit scenes.
