Other Features

has a built-in flash

The Fujifilm FinePix JV500 has a built-in flash. Most of the other cameras of this age and type also have a built-in flash.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other cameras with a built-in flash currently available including the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the Fujifilm FinePix S4800 which both of have better reviews.

Lens System

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

The Fujifilm FinePix JV500 has one of the bigger digital zooms (6.3 times zoom factor) amongst similar spec digital cameras of this age. The average digital zoom of medium megapixel cameras that have been on the market for more than two years is 6.6x, and the digital zooms range from 1x to 120x.

Cameras with a bigger digital zoom that might be worth considering include the Fujifilm Finepix SL300 (£219) (6.7x).

Quite Small Optical Zoom

At only 3 times zoom factor, the FinePix JV500 has a fairly small optical zoom compared to most of the other cameras of a comparable age and type to this digital camera. Digital cameras that were released more than two years ago have optical zooms of between 0.34x and 65x, and the average optical zoom is 14x.

We compared all the other 3x optical zoom digital cameras to this digital camera and we think the Olympus E-PL5 + M.ZUIKO ED 14‑42mm, the Leica X Vario, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a digital camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might want to look at the Kodak Pixpro FZ41 (4x) which is also higher rated.

Quite Small Display Diagonal

The display diagonals of cameras of this age and type range from 2" to 4.8", and the average display diagonal is 2.9". With a display diagonal of only 2.7 inches, the FinePix JV500 has one of the smaller display diagonals amongst medium megapixel cameras of this age.

We compared all the other 2.7" screen digital cameras to this digital camera and we think because of their better review scores, the Fujifilm FinePix JX500, and the Samsung 150F are also worth considering.

If this camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS (£192) (3" and higher rated).
