FujiFilm AV200 Lens features

The AV200 has a built-in lens giving a focal range of 32-96mm giving it a 3.0 x zoom which is definitely not ideal but it will probably be very helpful in some scenarios.

At it's widest 32mm, it will have an aperture of f2.9 and that's somewhat sluggish and not good in low light circumstances and you will probably struggle to capture good bokeh. You might also need to raise your ISO leading to noisy photos. For the long end, 96mm comes at f5.2 which is really slow and you will have to go with slower shutter speeds.

FujiFilm AV200 Video features

The highest possible video resolution on the FujiFilm AV200 is 1280 x 720 and it can save in Motion JPEG file format. 720p is terrible by today's standards.

It is perhaps best to look at an alternative model in case you want better audio in your videos.
