Hey! You should know that Fuji has released a newer version of this product: the Fujifilm FinePix T300.

Fuji FinePix JZ300

We've given the JZ300 a grade of B.

Editor's Review

The JZ300 has been replaced by the T300. Here's what we had to say about the JZ300 when it was released in February 2010:

The JZ300 is one of Fuji's new fun zoom models, the lower-cost option to the JZ500. This type of camera is popular with consumers: very compact, yet it packs in a powerful 10x zoom lens. The 720p HD video and brushed-aluminum finish are nice touches, too. We prefer the JZ300 over the more expensive model. It has 12 megapixels instead of 14, but you won't miss the pixels unless you need to make poster-sized prints. The face and pet recognition software in the JZ500 might be cool, but they aren't worth $50. Those are the only difference -- the optics are the same, and that's what matters. If you decide to go with a Fuji fun zoom, go with this model.

Very Disappointing (Tim Abbott — 12/28/2010)
I have a J10 which is excellent. I bought the JZ300 for the wide angle lense and the10 x zoom assuming the quality of the rest of it would be at least as good as the J10. That was not to be. The build seems to be very fragile, the battery cover is a very wobbly affair and the port for the USB is no better. Outdoor shots were reasonable but nothing special. Indoor shots using auto were dark and grainy, and the flash seemed to be very reluctant to work unless forced. The software was a nightmare to download. I took it back the next day

Shockingly bad. (Dave — 06/17/2010)
I was really excited to upgrade my old Kodak 4mp camera for this Fuji JZ300, but after using it, I wish I didnt bother. I was not impressed with its picture quality, even at its maximum quality (11mp). It takes terribly grainy indoor photos, has a very short flash range, and the outdoor pictures were just not sharp. The video quality even in HD was not focused on the moving subject. I expect more for a digital camera, especially as it was not one of the cheap ones. Am going back to my Kodak camera.

Superb camera (M. Shaam — 05/07/2010)
JZ300 from Fuji is yet another winner. It is a great looking camera, with excellent picture quality and superb HD movie recording. The 10x optical zoom is complemented with an extra digital zoom and the JZ300 is feature packed, full of fun and produces excellent pictures. I really like this camera. Excellent.
