The new FinePix JX300 camera features the same winning formula as previous models - its an slim, elegant compact camera which has been filled to the brim with the latest technologies. The aesthetically pleasing design of the new Fujifilm FinePix JX300 is an important part of the appeal of this camera.

And its ultra slim design ensures that the camera is compact enough to slide into your pocket or handbag and carry with you at all times.|
Fujifilm FinePix JX300 offers Easy Web Upload
By matching a high resolution sensor with high-precision Fujinon optics, Fujifilm have ensured that the FinePix JX300 will deliver sharp and clear images, which is perfect for enlarging on screen or in print without compromising the image quality. The Fujifilm FinePix JX300 features the popular ‘Easy Web Upload’ function that has previously only been found on the more fashion-driven models in the Fuji range.
Fujifilm JX300 photo upload
This is a great time-saver as it allows you to sort through your photos when you are travelling and decide which ones to upload to Facebook or YouTube so that when you get home you just have to connect to a PC and launch the MyFinePix Studio software (for Windows) and they will immediately upload.
Blink detection on the Fujifilm FinePix JX300
People often complain about ruined photos after the event, due to people blinking or not paying attention, never fear, Fujifilm is here with Smile and Shoot and Blink Detection features. The Smile and Shoot mode works by detecting smiles on faces: it will not take a picture until it detects a smile, so you're guaranteed happy shots every time. The clever Blink Detection mode warns you if you have captured an image with people blinking, so you can re-shoot if necessary.
Record HD movies with the Fujifilm FinePix JX300
The Fujifilm FinePix JX300 camera benefits from Full HD image capture and 720p HD movie capture. This enables you to take stunning, detailed pictures and videos that can be enjoyed in glorious High Definition on any HD ready television or PC.
Fujifilm FinePix JX300 features a picture search tool
The Fujifilm FinePix JX300 features Photobook Assist, which helps you create stunning photo books in-camera and lets you turn the pages as if you were looking at an album. Plus if you can never find the picture you are looking for, the new Picture search tool lets you search by date range, type of photo (whether it's a landscape, portrait, night-shot, macro-shot etc).
Fujifilm JX300 Face Recognition
This works using Face Recognition technology to allow you to tag your favourite people so that the camera recognises them when it takes a photo and can in turn bring up all photos of a particular person at the press of a button! Genius.
