Fuji Finepix J27

If you’re looking for a good looking 10 megapixel camera that doesn’t burn a big hole in your pocket, take a look at the Fujifilm Finepix J27.

The dimensions of the Finepix J27 are 92.0 x 55.9 x 20.0 mm and it weighs 113 gm, making it one of the most compact cameras out there. The body has a clean piano finish which looks good, but also makes it a finger print magnet. The smooth edges add to the overall clean look of the camera.

The camera is definitely one of the most compact cameras available in the market. It is very portable and easily fits in your pocket. The shutter button’s placed on the topside along with the power button. The placing of these buttons is just perfect and makes the camera easily operable with one hand.

Like the previous models of the Finepix A and J series, the J27 has a similar button layout on the back. The two way zoom toggle at the top followed by the disp/back and the play button. Just under these buttons you have the four way navigation console, with shortcuts to delete an image, flash configuration, self timer and the macro mode. At the center of the console is the menu/ok button.
The Fujifilm J27 packs a CCD sensor capable of taking pictures up to 10.2 megapixel with 3x optical zoom. The worst part of this camera is its zoom sensitivity. The zoom level is predetermined, that means you can only zoom in or out, to certain ‘predetermined’ levels, unlike the standard zoom found in other cameras. It was the first thing I noticed while reviewing this camera and easily the most displeasing aspect of it. The J27 can brag about being a 10.2 megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom and face detection, but it thoroughly loses out on its zoom functionality.

The camera is preset with 16 shooting modes, which includes VGA video recording (640x480), anti-blur (picture stabilization), and as stated before, it also has face detection. J27 is best catered for the point and shoot audience. Even the modes are well listed for an amateur photographer to easily comprehend.
