Fujifilm FinePix JV100

My husband bought me a Fujifilm FinePix JV100 camera for my birthday last year, it was pink - so I loved it instantly!! This is such a tiny little camera (only 18.5mm thick) that just fits nicely into the palm of your hand; despite the fact that it only weighs around 4oz it still looks and feels really sturdy and yet its sleek smooth edges make it look very chic.It not only look good it works well to and comes with a 12-Megapixel CCD, a 2.7" High-Resolution LCD, HD video capture and a Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens. Together with the camera you get a battery, battery charger, hand strap, USB cable, CD Rom software and users manual. This is one clever little camera and comes with two special facilities called the 'Smile & Blink Detection' and ' Face Detection technology' the latter detects smiles on faces and the former lets you know if you have taken a photo with people blinking, so you can re-shoot it if you want to - both handy features when photographing kiddies. As well as these two remarkable features it also has SR AUTO - 'Scene Recognition Auto' - whereby the camera can tell what type of scene you are shooting (portrait, landscape, night, macro, and night portrait or backlit portrait ) and then automatically sets the white balance, focus and the exposure to make sure that you get the perfect shot. Three more features are 'Digital Image Stabilization', 'Face Detection and Automatic Red-eye Removal'; reduces blurred images automatically while the latter two ensure you take perfect facial pictures every time - perfect for not to good photographers like me!! The main thing that I like is that there is no complicated on screen menu to contend with as the camera settings are all adjustable; the dial is next to the really large view window. There is also a devent video on the camera that gives good sound and excellent stills when stopped, and the battery on the camera will take 180 pictures beforeit needs charging. This is an excellent mid price camera that gives excellent results, is handy and compact and also looks good - it also comes in black and silver.
