Product Description Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The FinePix JV100 has a 12-megapixel CCD, a 2.7-inch High-Resolution LCD and a Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens. Soft, curved edges give it a sculpted, sophisticated look. Encased in a high-grade brushed aluminum metal body, it's not only well protected from bumps and scrapes, but features a simple, yet elegant design. The JV100 also has a new mode dial for additional convenience and functionality.

FinePix JV100 Highlights

HD Capability
The new J-Series models all offer stunning movies in 720p with sound and high quality stills at 1920 x 1080.

Tracking Auto Focus
Previously featured on Fujifilm's D-SLR styled FinePix S1500, the new J-Series models feature Tracking Auto Focus which is perfect for when you need to take a picture of a moving subject and can't keep your subject in the frame. Just switch Tracking Auto Focus on and it will track your subject and ensure that you achieve a crisp picture with you subject in the center of the frame in perfect focus.

Smile & Blink Detection
Photos are all too often spoiled by people blinking or grimacing. Smile Detection works with Fujifilm's highly-acclaimed Face Detection technology to detect smiles on faces: it will not take a picture until it detects a smile, so you're guaranteed happy shots! Another new feature is Blink Detection which warns you if you have captured an image with people blinking, so you can re-shoot if necessary.

Additional Features

  • Scene Recognition Auto (SR AUTO): This mode intelligently detects the scene type you are shooting and optimizes the camera's focus, exposure and white balance, so whether you're photographing flowers or a holiday landscape, you will get flawless photos at the press of a button.
  • Picture Stabilization: This marries high sensitivities with faster shutter speeds that not only reduces blur due to camera shake, but also blur caused by ever-active children, fidgety pets or other moving subjects.
  • Face Detection and Automatic Red-eye Removal: To provide perfectly exposed and focused portrait shots, each J-Series model is fitted with Fujifilm's latest Face Detection technology which is able to track up to 10 faces simultaneously, at almost any angle to the camera. The system instantly corrects red-eye and then saves both the original and the corrected image file automatically.

Like a user-friendly version of the J38 with new features!!! April 25 2010
By 1Dub79 - Published on
Color: Black
This version of the Finepix has many similarities to the Fujifilm Finepix J38 12MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and 2.7 inch LCD, which I reviewed in November. There are a few differences. One new feature of this camera is the HD Movie Mode, which shows in 720p and 1920 x 1080 stills. The camera also has compatibility with HDTVs, which means the pictures will show in HD, if they are reviewed on an HDTV. The camera also has a new Smile and Blink Detection system. Once the shooter holds the camera up to a subject, who smiles, the camera will automatically take the photo. The Blink Detection feature is nice because the camera will alert the shooter that subject is blinking. Therefore, the shooter will have the option to take a better photo.

I also noticed after reviewing a taken photo, a message will say "face detected." The user now has the option to do a close-up review of the person's face, whom they have taken a picture of. Another difference is this camera is a little more user-friendly. The camera now has a shooting mode dial. This means the person can just turn the dial to the shooting mode, which they want to go to. In addition, the modes tell you what they do. Still, a user will have to go to the menus to do modify the camera, such as change the movie mode and shooting image quality and repeated shooting options. Compared to the Fujifilm Finepix J38 12MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and 2.7 inch LCD, I must say that the JV100's photos are a little more vivid. I took pictures with both and saw the difference. I must admit, the HD movie mode is very underrated. In fact, it shows almost as good as many HD camcorders. Collectively, that makes this camera a steal.

The biggest flaw with this camera is the HD Movie Mode just sucks the life out of the camera. I would suggest staying using that mode wisely. With that in mind, users are not obligated to use the HD movie mode. It can be changed to the 640 x 480 shooting resolution. Another flaw is this camera cannot be charged, while the battery is in the camera. The battery must be taken out, and placed in the charger. Also, the camera was poorly designed for recording a movie. For example, the female part, which the tripod screws in, is on the bottom right side of the camera. Most cameras have it directly at the bottom of the camera. Not to mention, the built-in microphone is right next to it. Some tri-pods will cover a portion of the built-in microphone. This can lead to altered play-back on the movies. These issues make me give this camera a rating of four.

Great Camera, Many Feautures June 15 2010
By Christi <3 - Published on
Color: Black
I received this camera as a present for my 15th birthday. I loved it at once because of the sleek appearance and handy mode dial. Another nifty part about it is that there are 10+ ''positions" and on the screen it has a discription of each one. They are: Snow, Fireworks, Baby, Portrait, Night Scenery (tripod and no tripod), Sport, Landscape, Panorama, Text, Flower (macro), Party, Beach, Sunset, and Smile& Shoot. Each one actually makes a big difference, and it's nice to have so many options. Most other Point&Shoots do not have so many.

Something I love about the JV100 is that it has SRAuto, which automatically selects the best mode according to the situation. It is actually really accurate and perfect if you're in a hurry.

The picture quality is also impressive. Both indoors and outdoors the images come out nicely and with a lot of detail and depth. The colors are beautiful and vivid. The movie mode is pretty good, and a plus is that you can zoom while taping.

The only problems I have with this FinePix are that the Smile&Shoot doesn't always work, but that's not a major deal. My last complaint is the battery life. I have to charge it at least once a day.

-many position options
-great price for value
-good image quality
-you can zoom while recording a video
-easy to use and figure out
-compact and good looking
-huge LCD screen

-only comes in blue and black
-ok battery life

P.S. The camera comes with a CD that is great for organizing and editing your uploaded pictures. Cool!

Overall, this is a great camera that I'd recommend for anyone that wants a Point and Shoot. FugiFilm has really done a great job.
Thanks for reading!

Update, July 13

My little brother dropped this camera from about 5 ft in the air and it started to have issues with turning on. I was reluctant to return it, but the thing would rarely turn on so I had no choice. I pruchased the FinePix Z70 as a replacement, and heres my experiance: This one is better than the newer, more expensive model. I would like to get the JV100 again, but my mom won't let me because she doesn't want to deal with Best Buy's costumer service again :(

Excellent camera, super price! Dec 26 2010
By Gary - Published on
Color: Black Verified Purchase
I bought this for my wife to replace an Olympus that had been lost. I was looking for a simple to use little digital camera that would take excellent pictures and that is what she got with this camera. Super easy to use right out of the box and it takes excellent pictures. It is nice and light weight but works like a heavy weight. Simple for her to hook up directly to her computer to download and save the pictures. Great camera for a fantastic price.

Another cheap camera Sept. 1 2011
By OP_4 - Published on
Color: Black
I purchased this camera 3 months ago from a major retailer and it is now broken with out any known cause. There has been no abuse, water submersion, or any other events to cause a malfunction not even humidity, I live in a temperate desert. All of a sudden an error message of "TURN CAMERA OFF AND TURN IT ON AGAIN" appeared stopping the camera from functioning. I contacted Fujifilm's technical support to trouble shoot the problem. Their answer was to reset the camera to its default settling. When this didn't work they referred me to the return and repair department where they informed me that I would have to pay to ship the camera to one of there repair facility and it would take 15 business days after receiving the device before they would begin to diagnose the camera and email me quote for the repairs. I think this is unacceptable I'll cut my losses now before I have to repeat this process again in another 3 months. Save yourself time and money, don't buy this POS.

The Absolute Worst Camera I've Ever Owned Sept. 25 2011
By Deelock - Published on
Color: Black
This is my first review ever on this site and I'm doing it just to complain about how awful this camera is.


I have two major complaints: One being that the battery lasts an extremely short amount of time. There have been several occasions where I've charged this camera the a day or two before I've needed it only to find that the battery was dead by the time I've gone to use it.

My second complaint is the difficulty I have had trying to import photos to my computer (Mac). The files are corrupt and I've lost a lot of pictures I needed. I'm also having trouble viewing the files on the camera itself, it keeps giving me a "read error."

This camera broke after only a couple of uses and even if it was only $20 it would be a rip-off.
