At the heart of the JZ250 is a powerful 8x Fujinon lens offering a 25-250mm equivalent to a 35mm camera. The wide-ranging lens enables users to capture everything from beautiful wide-angle shots to stunning images of distant objects. At the other end of the scale, the JZ250 offers a close-focusing distance of 5cm, which enables users to shoot beautiful macro images that fill the frame with detail and vibrant colors.The sensor inside this compact camera has been designed to work perfectly with the Fujinon optics. The FinePix JZ250 offers a 16 mega-pixel CCD sensor, capable of producing premium quality images and movie. Even reviewing stills and movie in-camera is enjoyable, thanks to the LCD screen that has been redesigned for increased brightness over previous models in the JZ series.
