FujiFilm JV100 Lens details

The JV100 is equipped with a built-in lens giving a focal range of 37-111mm making it a 3.0 x zoom which won't be significant however it would certainly be convenient in certain situations.

At it's widest 37mm, it offers an aperture of f3.2 and that's very sluggish and not the best in low light occasions and you will struggle to capture good bokeh. You could also have to boost your ISO setting which causes noisy files. At the long end, 111mm comes with f4.3 which is quite slow and you will have to go with slow shutter speeds.
