The Fujifilm FinePix A150 is based around a ten megapixel 1/2.3" CCD image sensor and a Fujinon-branded 3x optical zoom lens that offers focal range equivalents of 35.5 to 106.5mm. The Fuji A150's lens has a maximum aperture that varies from F3.1 to F5.6 across the zoom range. There's no mechanical image stabilization, with the A150 featuring only what Fuji calls "Picture Stabilization", where the camera raises ISO sensitivity to achieve faster shutter speeds that freeze action at the expense of some added noise or reduced fine detail. Images are framed and reviewed on a 3.0" LCD display with 230,000 dot resolution, as there's no optical viewfinder on the FinePix A150.

With a pricetag of US$130, the Fuji FinePix A150 is clearly designed with affordability in mind - but it still includes ease-of-use features such as a face detection capable of simultaneously recognizing up to six faces in a scene. The locations of detected faces are then accounted for when determining autofocus and autoexposure, and can also be used to correct red-eye automatically after image capture. Images are stored on SD memory cards or 20MB of built-in memory, and power comes courtesy of two standard AA batteries, with alkaline disposables included in the product bundle.

The Fujifilm A150 ships in the North American market from February 2009.
