I currently own the Fujifilm Finepix J10 in black, however it is also available in a variety of other colours. I have owned this camera for over two years and still use it as my main camera to this day.
Simple and easy to use with preset shooting modes to fit the user's various needs (Manual, sport, night, fireworks etc).
Movie function allows users to take video clips which can be played back on the device.
Menu dial allows quick access of the self timer, macro, flash and delete functions.
8.2 megapixels takes wonderfully clear and crisp images.
Fairly long lasting battery life, allows continuous use of long periods of time.
Large screen to view captured images and playback video clips.
Easy to transfer pictures/video onto computer or other device using USB cable or removing SD card.
On/off button and capture button are fairly close together, however this is not a huge problem.
I bought this model camera following the unfortunate demise of my previous finepix camera. Whilst in the USA at camp, my kids thought it would be funny to drag the contents of my bed off my top bunk and hide the bedding. I came back to some grim looking 7 year old faces with a "Sorry, we didn't realise you had stuff on it" and that was the death of my dear camera who hit the floor and never woke up again :( .
I ordered this one off of ebay for about $80. The exchange rate was two dollars to the pound - a camera that was a number of series above mine for £40. Wonderful - over 2 years later and it is still going strong!
***What is it?***
This is a Finepix J10 Fujifilm digital camera. What I like about it is quite slim at just under an inch thick and about 4 inches in length, 3 inches if that in width. My model is black all over with silver accents - the circular lens is silver on the front and in the right hand corner it says 8.2 mega pixels and centred to the left is 'FUJIFULM' with the flash in the top centre. On the bottom it has a grey circular attachment hole where you can fasten it to a tripod. The top has 'Finepix J10' and on/off button and the button which takes the photo! On the back you have an awesome size screen - one of the major reasons I chose this camera. The screen is about 3 inches by 2 inches and to the right is a circular dial and buttons which relate to activating different menus and viewing your snaps. It comes with an adjustable grey wrist strap which has clung on well!
Here are some of the basic features I use regularly and my opinions of them and the ease with which I can use and access them.
- 8.2 mega pixels - I feel this is quite large enough for general snap shops and is adjustable easily via the menu. You can adjust the 'quality' which gives you a choice of taking your snaps at 8M which takes about 476 frames, down to 0.3M which allows you 9092 frames (this is relative to my 2GB memory card). The quality of the pictures at the highest and lowest level is excellent - they are crisp with vivid colours; my parrot comes out looking stunning!
- Shooting Modes - Although it can be left on Auto, there are 17 others modes. As you scroll through them, there is an explanation of their effect, for example in 'Baby Mode' (yes BABY MODE) it offers 'Suitable for babies, for natural skin tone without flash'. This is a really great feature although I don't think you necessarily achieve the effects you're after simply by changing the mode. Without the flash, unless you are completely still or the cameras on a tripod, the images can come out cack and night and fireworks modes have rarely worked as well as I would have hoped considering they have their own designated 'mode'. A great feature (including movie) for up close images and taking pictures of text but otherwise, Auto usually serves me best and some of the modes appear to be just with flash removed a lot of the time.
- 3" x 2" Screen - to me this is practically wide screen. You can zoom in and out and trim your photos on the camera but it's just nice being able to see the images with some clarity. When the photo's being taken you can choose the view finder or the screen to centre your photo and you can also apply the thirds grid (learn your rule of thirds!) to take the perfect shot every time.
- Easy Access Menu - The menu dial is one of the better features of this camera. The circular dial has menu/ok written in the centre and then in one of the 4 directions, a different frequently used function. By pressing menu, you get a range of other options. Despite being a macro mode, you can apply macro in Auto mode for close up shots of insects and flowers. The timer is on the bottom - pressed a number of times you get different timers; 2 seconds and 10 seconds. You can remove the flash by pushing to the right and delete at the top. Above the menu is the display button (you can view different details when looking at your photo's such as viewing time and date or removing everything on screen so you can see the photo clearly; you can also view 6 - 12 image thumbnails for quicker scrolling too) and then the green play button which allows you to view photo's.
I've touched upon the main features I use and why I like them above but overall, I really like this little camera. It takes an XD picture card which is great with my modern laptops card reader. Having bought this in the USA I'm not sure if there are details that are different but I'll just go on what I have. I believe it came with a CD (surely it must have!) but I've never installed it and no longer know where it is. I have always removed the XD card because using a USB cable has never worked. This is irritating when working with a computer or laptop that isn't modern and doesn't have a card reader. It just seems to be a defunct feature that has never worked with this camera. I'm sure it's more of an isolated incident involving my cam who has been through the wars but it's tiresome.
This camera has seen better days. It has been dropped - not on concrete but on carpet, wooden floors, slid off sofas, bounced a few times and has remained resilient. This is not promoting camera abuse however. Being black, it shows its use. The screens four corners are all worn and silver because the screen is inlayed and the screen frame sits out a little. The corners of the front panel are also silver from rubbing on surfaces. However the main traffic areas such as the menu buttons and dial look as good as new and the buttons and directions are all still clear.
The battery and memory card are under a sliding panel underneath the cam and are easy to remove. It's a really slick action you can do with one hand - I appear very 'in touch' with my camera! One other feature I like, which I'm not sure is an exclusive USA thing as only my DSLR cam has it, is that the slender little battery doesn't charge in the camera. You remove it and slide it into a dock. The 2 USA prongs which would plug in to your typical USA socket actually slide out and can be flattened to make the battery dock roughly the same size if not a bit slimmer than the camera. When plugged in, it's like one of those air fresheners that poufs each time you walk by - no wires trailing, it's attached to the wall. I now have a USA to UK conversion plug and it remains hugging the wall. I think it's great - I HATE wires and wish more chargeable appliances used a dock which attached to the wall as appose to leaving a tangled trail.
The only negatives I can think of would be the modes and their effectiveness. I do find that despite the Auto function pretty much serving every purpose, when I want to use one of the specialist modes in the right situation, they aren't all they are cracked up to be. This especially applies to modes that remove the flash or focus on movement. Fireworks and night images come out blurred or the feature you're focusing on is dark whilst the flash has picked up other areas, you can't really focus properly in the dark or in unlit situations.
Despite this, I am really chuffed with how the camera has held out. I take it everywhere, everyone feels like they can use it and they understand it and it was popular among my friends on nights out for it to circulate and an array of interesting images to come back! It's simple to use and is a great point and click camera. It's slim, light and quick to function. It's easy to learn how to use and on Auto it serves practically every purpose. A cracking little camera!
This is a very reasonable camera. The specification is impressive and the price is even better. The camera copes well generally allround and is incredibly simple to use. The interface is very simple and self explanatory. The back screen is LCD at 2.5 inches and produces a fantastic picture and true to life photo. The camera looks very slick and is nothing complicated.
When my wife decided it was time for us to buy a new digital camera I began researching on Ebay. We both love taking photos but our technical knowledge is non-existant. What we did know was that we wanted loads of mega-pixels, we wanted a good sized LCD screen, rechargable battery option, connection to PC availability plus some kind of anti blur. We are both getting on a bit so the hands aren't quite as steady as they used to be! I looked at literally 100's of cameras and gradually whittled them down to this awesome little unit. It may be small in size but its huge on features, many of which we will probably never use. 8.2 mega pixels is plenty for our type of photos, the preview screen is brilliant and there is plenty of room for all those little signs and words that pop up telling you everything from the date to the state of the battery. It even tells you when you are out of focus! The real added bonus with this unit is the video option which produces suprisingly clear film. However you will need to have at least 4gb of memory to achieve the benefits of this feature. The zoom is very well designed and is in two stages so that you can get really clear close ups. All in all we are both well impressed. Fuji have just provided us with 3 years extra parts and labour warranty for £18.50. A few quid for a spare battery is a must and I would highly recommend the neat little charger you can buy on Ebay which doubles as a 240v or 12v charger so that you are never without power. Our total outlay inc all the extras and the warranty £110~ WOW!
I was lucky enough to get the Fuji film J 10 as a Christmas present in Dec 2008, and I am very very pelased with it. I have it in black; very smart and sexy. The memory is awesome, it is so easy to use, the pictures are of really excellent quality for such a cheap and teeny camera. I often use it to upload pictures onto Facebook and the like, and it is so easy to do so, it has made my life so much easier!! I would definitely recommend it to amateur photographers, those of you that just like taking silly pictures and professionals as well. It is a great size aswell- small enough to fit in your handbag/pocket. I bought my case from Asda for about £3! Would be great for children as well as it is so lightweight and not too pricey- the range of colours is pretty great too- I couldn't choose between black and silver but I am so pleased I went with black- it goes with everything ;)
I got this camera as a christmas present. It comes in a variety of colours, mine is the red one.
The fujifilm finepix J10 is an 8.2 mega pixel digital camera.
Description of the camera.
The camera is lightweight and nice and small. It is not an ultra slim camera, but despite this is still not chunky. On the front of the camera is the name Fujifilm in silver letering, in the top right corner are the words 8.2 mega pixels also in silver writing. The lense is also silver, an the red and silver together make the camera attractive, and give it a sleek sophisticated finish.
On the top of the camera is the on/off button and next to that is the button to take pictures. These are quite close together, and on a couple of occassions i have actually gone to take a picture and ended up turning the camera off, it would have been nice to have the buttons a little further apart, but i wouldn't say that this is a huge design flaw.
Turning the camera over, i found a good sized colour screen. Next to the screen on the right hand side at the top are the zoom in and out buttons, Below those are the display button and the play button which allows you to flick from shooting mode to view the pictures that have been taken.
Below those are a bi circle button which has menu written on it, around this button are the delete, flash, timer and macro buttons. All of the buttons are silver. I found that the buttons were much more well spaced out, and the positioning was good.
Included in the camera box, was the camera, a battery, a battery charger which plugs into a mains plug socket, a hand strap, a USB cabple aninstruction manual and a cd rom.
The instruction manual i found was easy to navigate, and explained the workings of the camera in a manner which was easy to understand. The manual also has a troubleshooting section for if you experience any problem with the camera. This is handy to have, although i must say i have never had to use it since i have not had a single problem with this camera at all.
You will need a memory card for the camera as it does not have a very big internal memory, but this is true of most diital cameras, so again i would not consider this to be a flaw of the camera.
I did not have to install the software provided with the camera, sonce my computer recognised the camera straight away, but other people who have the same camera as me who have had to install the software, have reported that it was quick and easy to do, and had easy to follow instructions.
As regards taking pictures, the 8.2 mega pixels certainly lives up to expectations, the pictures are of a very high quality, and the colour quality is also very good.
The battery life for me usually lasts for a couple of nights or days out, and since i end to take a lot of pictures when i use my camera, i would say that the battery life is very good, there is a battery icon on the scrren which tells you at what charge the battery is at, and when the battery gets low, the icon turns red to warn you.
Unfortunately im a clumsy person, and my poor camera has taken its fair share of tumbles, however despite this i have found that the camera is very strong and still has not got a single scratch on it despite my clumsiness.
Price, the RRP for this camera is around £70, which i think is actually quite reasonable, for such a good quality product, and it is available from all major retailers, mine was purchasd from argos.
Overall i love this camera, it is light, and good looking, takes high quality pictures and is easy to use., it has a long battery life, and is also quite durable. I would recommend this to anyone whos looking for camera with the qualities i have mentioned.
I bought this camera when my old olympus one needed replacing, after reading many many great reviews on the camera.
It is very small and thin (Size (H)5.5, (W)9.1, (D)2.2cm) and lightweighjt yet it still feels solid and surdy. Easy to slip into your pocket or handbag on a night out. This camera comes in 3 colours (black, red and silver) i bought the silver one. It has a large screen on the back of the camera to view pics on, 2.5 inch LCD screen which is really handy.
I love how easy to use this camera is, really, even technophobes amongst us could use it, its really that simple.
Itb has some excellent features, an anti blur button which is great for taking action shots, its shutter speed is higher than some cameras therefore shooting action pics are not not blurry and are clear.
It also has a low light marvel which means pics can be taken in a low light setting and do not suffer the same way they would on a regular camera, they dont suffer from the background noise reducing the quality of the photo as the camera is not fighting the noise and the light to take a good quality pic.
You can also create your own slideshow and save it on the camera which is an excellent dfeature and not one i hjave seen on a digital camera before!!
Another excellent feature of this camera is that is takes both XD and SD memory cards, which i thought was great as i had other cards from my olympus camera which i can now use with this one too!! yay!
here are the specs:
Body material: Metal and plastic.
3 x optical zoom.
5.1 x digital zoom.
2.5in LCD screen.
Digital anti blur.
Continuous shooting - 0.6 fps.
XD, SD, SDHC compatible.
8Mb internal memory.
Movie capture with sound.
Maximum ISO range: 1600.
14 scene modes.
Accessories included in box - strap, charger, AV and USB cables, CD ROM software, Instruction manual.
1 x Li-Ion battery supplied.
Size (H)5.5, (W)9.1, (D)2.2cm.
* I bought the Fujifilm Finepix J10 from Curry's at £89.98.
What does the promo say?
At Fujifilm, we believe that affordability should never mean a compromise on quality, and the new FinePix J10 compact digital camera is no exception. The FinePix J10 boasts 8 megapixels, Fujinon 3x optical zoom and ISO 1600 light sensitivity as well as QVGA movie recording capability.
It's also incredibly easy to use, with an intuitive icon-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), designed to take the guess work out of selecting camera settings.

The FinepixJ10 is available in a choice of either Black, red or silver, the size of the camera means you can fit it easily into a small bag.
Here I am going to list some of the amazing features the Fujifilm finepix j10 has to offer:
A low light marvel
Using this feature means photos can be taken in low light. Limited flash range and direct light can mean the foreground is harshly lit and the background lost all together. If the flash isn't used at all, then in some cases there is noise, in the past when ive taken photos with out flash there has been clear evidence of noise on my photos. This is because the sensor struggles to pick up all of the detail in the scene.
Anti blur button
The camera's Anti-blur system increases its ISO setting and associated shutter speed, so that the shutter can open and close much more quickly, thereby freezing moving action without blur - this anti blur system is great as I take lots oh photos of my brother playing football so using this can take a really amazig photo whilst hes moving.
When a still image isn't sufficient, the FinePix J10 movie mode, at 30 frames per second, captures movie clips with sound that are limited in length only by the size of memory card used.
Create your own 'Slideshow'
The FinePix J10 features lots of different options for sharing images once they've been taken, such as create your own slideshow, I really like this feature as i've never had a camera what hs this kind of feature, when I go round to my aunties and show my photos I can create a slideshow before so all the photos I want her to see are already saved into a slideshow.
I really like the FinePix J10 features it's a very attractive camera, and I love how easy the camera is to use and the functions it has to offer.
The images this camera takes are crisp, clear, and vivid.
I think the camera is well worth its price and I would defiantly recommend this camera.
I have this Camera, it is small Lightweight and easy to use, it takes great pics and iu have put in a extra mem card - so far this has been a relaible and i have it to use for a holiday camera - using this camera is so easy turn it on and click away. not so many features but thats what i wanted just a easy camera that i could take good quality pictures on while away - the picture is good and looking at the display at the pic is good quality to - the only thing i think would have been good is a case to carry it around in but, i mean it is not the end of the world not to have one. also this camera is that easy to use that my daughter who is 3 uses it very easy, she loves it as much as me. I Purchased this camera for £79.99.
I got this camera to take away to Eurodisney to take photo's of my family. Its a great little camera not that big and fits into pocket easily to carry around. It is very simple to use and gives a good quality of photo. You will need to buy a larger SD card so you can store more photo's. has been dropped a few times and still works no problems. Case is well engineered, when turned off lens retracts and shutter closes to procted it. Just a simple little compact camera to take with you where ever you go.
It is very easy to get the photos of the camera with the cable provided and the program provided with camera is great for storing the collection of photos.
All in all its a great camera for general use and is easily worht the money. I have had a few camera's and even though this is not the most expensive it is the best value for money camera i have ever used though work or personnel use.
Get yourself one you won't be upset.
