Fujifilm Rolls Out New FinePix JX370 Digital Camera


Low-priced yet packed with easy-to-use features, the entry-level Fujifilm FinePix JX370 digital camera boasts 14 megapixels and easy upload to YouTube or Facebook: simply scroll through the images on the rear LCD, mark the ones you want to publish and, once connected to your computer, the images will instantly upload via Fujifilm’s MyFinePix Studio software.

The JX370 has an uncluttered yet stylish design. Fujifilm said the 5x zoom lens (equivalent to a 28-140mm lens on a 35mm camera) sits centrally on the front of the camera ensuring it’s easy to hold with one or two hands, and the metallic-effect finish on the body of the camera adds a real sense of style.

Other features: 2.7-inch rear LCD, a wide range of shooting modes, digital image stabilization, Face, Smile and Blink detection, panoramic function and high definition 720p video recording. About US$143 when it ships in October.
