Another day, another indistinguishable point-and-shoot. Well, almost. The AX200 is one of the cheapest cameras to record 720p HD video (the cheapest is it's little sister, the AV100). The 5x zoom lens on this model is also above average for the price. The image quality is likely to be iffy at best, but hey, cameras with specs like this usually go for $150, so who's arguing? It's been replaced by the AX300, which is very similar, not many differences in performance or price.

Fujifilm Reviews

Being among the first creators of the compact camera, Fujifilm is one of the world's most significant imaging and photographic companies. Fujifilm launched the DS-1P in 1988, gaining credit for the first real digital camera widely available.

Most of their latest advanced cameras use an X-Trans sensor, which eliminates the need for an optical low pass filter by reducing moire with the arrangement of pixel units instead. Eliminating the optical low pass filter means there's less between the lens and the sensor, which translates into better resolution and detail.

Fujifilm digital cameras are famous for their natural image color, wide dynamic range, low noise and high sensitivity. It's hard to go wrong with a Fujifilm X mirrorless camera. Models like the X-M1 have an affordable price, yet sacrifice the right features in order to reach that price. Models like the X-T1, on the other hand, are packed full of the latest, greatest features on the market.

Fujifilm is about more than mirrorless though, offering several fixed lens cameras that are good options as well. Their super zoom cameras are usually a pretty good bet. They also offer a waterproof XP line, but they're more of a budget camera than a best-in-class option.

Fujifilm has also recently joined the retro camera craze, giving many of their models a retro film look with all the features of digital. Many of their models follow this trend, but there's a few that stick with a more digital look.
