FinePix JZ300 – Fujifilm's New Secret Weapon

( The James Bond of compact cameras, Fujifilm’s new FinePix JZ300 is in a league of its own, encompassing the perfect blend of action and timeless style.

Loaded with all the latest features, the super-slim FinePix JZ300 offers a generous 10x zoom lens, perfect for the secret agent’s among us who want to capture that sneaky shot from far away.

Developed in conjunction with the advanced CCD-shift image stabilisation system, this fantastic camera produces crisp high-resolution and blur-free images throughout the focal range.

Pair this with the versatile 28mm wide-angle lens and you’re guaranteed to capture everything from wide landscapes to large group shots in stunning detail.

If it’s style you’re after then the FinePix JZ300 has it all. Available in silver and black with elegant round edges and a smooth matte finish, the classy camera is the perfect accessory for those black-tie functions.

This incredibly slim camera is 23mm deep, and is virtually undetectable tucked away out of sight, ensuring you maintain your cover while always on the ready for that once in a lifetime picture.

For the best possible action pictures, the Target Focus mode on the JZ300 tracks fast moving subjects so they don’t escape from the frame in a blur, ensuring you won’t miss a shot – even if your life depends on it!

The new JZ300 also features Fujifilm’s highly effective and acclaimed Face Detection technology, with auto red-eye removal to eliminate unsightly red night time eyes while the photo is being taken. This technology can detect up to 10 faces in a frame, optimising focus and exposure for faces, rather than any background objects – perfect for pictures of people in the midst of the action!

The JZ300 offers further assurance of the perfect picture with Fujifilm’s Smile Detection technology. The intelligent camera will only take the picture once all the subjects are smiling, and with the added Blink Detection bonus there will be no more spoilt photos!

Sometimes, it takes only a split second to miss a great image, but the special Scene Recognition Auto mode (SR Auto) ensures you don’t lose a single opportunity for a great picture.

This clever technology automatically detects the scene you’re shooting – Portrait, Landscape, Night, Macro, Backlit Portrait and Night Portrait and optimizes the camera’s settings to produce the best results.

Movie lover’s can re-live each moment on any HD screen with JZ300’s 720p and high quality stills playback. Plus now you don’t have to waste time furiously flicking through your pictures to find the one you’re after – Fujifilm has included a new file management Picture Search tool which allows you to find specific photos quickly and easily.
