The Fujifilm A220 is based around a twelve megapixel 1/2.3" CCD image sensor and a Fujinon-branded 3x optical zoom lens that offers focal range equivalents of 32 to 96mm. The Fuji A220's lens has a maximum aperture that varies from F2.9 to F5.2 across the zoom range. There's no mechanical image stabilization, with the A220 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 2.7" LCD display with 230,000 dot resolution, as there's no optical viewfinder on the A220.

With a pricetag of US$100, the Fuji A220 is clearly designed with affordability in mind, but it still includes ease-of-use features such as a face detection and a shooting mode which automatically stitches three consecutive shots into a single panoramic image. Images are stored on SD memory cards or 10MB of built-in memory, and power comes courtesy of two standard AA batteries, with alkaline disposables included in the product bundle.

The Fujifilm A220 ships in the North American market from mid-August 2009.
