Fujifilm announces FinePix JX370 sharing-friendly budget compact
Fujifilm has announced the FinePix JX370 budget compact camera designed for photo sharing. The JX370 fits a usefully wide-angle 28-140mm equivalent lens in front of a 14 megapixel CCD sensor. The rear screen is a 2.7" 230k dot panel and the lens is unstabilized, but the camera features face, smile and blink detection modes to make it easier to get good photos. There are also features to make sharing photos and videos easier to sites such as YouTube or Facebook.
The NEW FinePix JX370 – photo sharing made easy!
Fujifilm’s J series of FinePix cameras has a new addition that makes taking and sharing photographs quick and easy. The JX370 is ideally suited to photographers who want to shoot – and share – their photos with minimal fuss. For first-time digital camera users and families, this model offers an impressive level of specification that includes 14 megapixel resolution, a wide range of shooting modes and Easy web upload to both You Tube and Facebook.
Designed for ease of use
The uncluttered design of the FinePix JX370 ensures ease of use straight out of the box. 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.
Around the back of the camera, a 2.7 inch rear LCD makes composing and viewing images simple, plus the button layout is easy to follow with a large zoom control for effortless fine-tuning of framing.
What’s more, the Fujinon optics and impressive resolutions on both models will ensure you get great results that can be printed out at sizes up to A3 without any drop in quality.
A range of modes for stills and video
The JX370 may be small and pocketable, but it still packs a punch when it comes to picture taking features.
A wide range of shooting modes allow you to select specific functions according to the type of photograph you’re taking, or simply leave the choice up to the camera by selecting the SR Auto mode.
Full resolution still images can be captured at up to 1.1 frames per second, plus there’s Face, Smile and Blink Detection to ensure perfect portrait pictures, Digital Image Stabilisation to reduce the effect of camera shake, a panoramic shooting function and exposure compensations to help you deal with awkward lighting conditions.
The flash is also well specified with auto, flash on, flash off and slow synchro options, while the ISO sensitivity range extends from ISO 100 to 3200.
For those of you preferring to shoot moving images, the FinePix JX370 offers High Definition 720p video capture.
Sharing made simple
When you’ve taken your pictures and movies, the last thing you want to do is spend hours sat in front of your computer trying to upload the images. Buy a JX370 and your computer time is kept to a minimum thanks to the Easy Web Upload feature. 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. It couldn’t be simpler!
If, on the other hand, you’d like to preserve your memories in a photobook, the FinePix JX370 features Photobook Assist where you can create the book in camera and preview it by ‘turning’ the pages on the LCD screen.

If you're shooting the solar eclipse here's a hint: don't fry your camera's sensor. Use a proper solar filter that offers at least 16 stops of light filtration, along with UV and IR filtering. More important? Don't look at it unless you've got solar filters. Sensors can be replaced, your retinas can't.
