The Fujifilm FinePix J250W has a compact body whose front panel holds a Fujinon-branded 5x optical zoom lens offering a range from a useful 28mm-equivalent wide angle to a 140mm-equivalent telephoto. Behind this lens sits a 1/2.3" CCD image sensor with ten megapixel resolution. Importantly, the Fujifilm J250 includes not only a "Picture Stabilization" function which boosts ISO sensitivity / shutter speeds to freeze blur, but also offers true mechanical image stabilization. ISO sensitivity ranges up to a maximum of ISO 1,600 equivalent at full resolution. The Fuji FinePix J250W's rear panel has no provision for an optical viewfinder, instead opting solely for a 3.0" LCD display with 230,000 dots of resolution.

Belying its affordable pricetag, the Fuji J250 doesn't offer a lot in the way of manual controls - instead focusing on simplicity and ease of use. Focusing choices are either Center AF or Face Detection AF. As well as being linked to the autofocus system, the Fujifilm J250W's face detection function includes automatic red-eye removal capability. Shutter speeds range from 8 seconds to 1/2000 second, and apertures from F3.3 - F5.2 at wide angle, or F5.1 - F8.0 at telephoto. These are all controlled automatically, with sixteen scene modes offering the J250W owner's main method of controlling the look of images. There's also an SR Auto scene recognition mode which automatically selects from a subset of six different common scene types and adjusts for exposure, focus, white balance and ISO sensitivity as appropriate. The Fuji FinePix J250 is also capable of recording VGA or QVGA videos at 30 frames-per-second with monaural sound. Movies are saved in AVI format using QuickTime Motion JPEG compression, and it is possible to use the J250's optical zoom lens during movie recording.

The Fujifilm FinePix J250 stores its images on SD or SDHC cards or in 23MB of built-in memory. Power comes from an NP-45 Lithium Ion rechargeable battery. Available from March 2009 with pricing of about $200, the Fuji FinePix J250W will only be available in a black finish for US market customers.
