There is a lot to like about the Fuji Finepix J250. It scores well for ease of use as you would expect, but I also thought it offers for very good value for money. Picture quality was surprisingly good and I liked the large 3 inch LCD screen.

Fujifilm Finepix J250


Able to switch off flash if you want to, and impressed with the features like macro mode and the zoom facility, also like the timer.
