Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR


It's easy to feel like there's a price ceiling when it comes to point-and-shoots: If you spend too little, you'll be replacing the thing every six months. Spend too much and you'll end up feeling like you may as well have sprung for a DSLR. So before...

Quick shutter ; Impressive display resolution ; Simultaneous RAW and JPEG capture ; Intuitive physical and digital UI

Battery life ; Some might be scared off by its size – a little too big for the average pocket ; Digital noise above ISO 1,600 ; Price – paying more over $300 for a point-and-shoot can be a hard sell

There’s no denying the Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR is a remarkable device and packs a punch in its small package.

FujiFilm FinePix F500EXR Preview


The FujiFilm FinePix F500EXR is a powerful compact point-n-shoot that arrives with an all new 16 megapixel EXR-CMOS image sensor, a 3.0" high contrast (460K resolution) LCD, and a Fujinon 15x super Wide-angle lens (covering a 24mm-360mm equivalent...

FinePix F550EXR


($349) is a compact ultra zoom camera featuring a 16 Megapixel EXR CMOS sensor, a whopping 15X zoom lens, a high resolution / high contrast LCD, Full HD video recording, and a built-in GPS with a huge database of landmarks. It's joined by its little...

15X, 24 - 360 mm zoom lens in a compact, well built body ; Sensor-shift image stabilization ; Beautiful 3-inch LCD with excellent outdoor visibility ; Quick autofocus in most situations ; D-Range Priority feature dramatically reduces clipped highlights...

Heavy noise reduction smudges fine details of photos (lower the resolution for best results) ; Strong corner blurring, which Fuji says is acceptable (quality control problem?) ; Redeye ; Yellow color cast under artificial lighting (or at least my...

Ultimately, a camera is only as good as the photos it takes, and despite all of its cool features, the FinePix F550EXR is a letdown in the image quality department. While I have a feeling that I got a less-than-perfect sample (which Fuji still...

Read Fujifilm Finepix F550EXR Digital Camera


Fujifilm's list of point-and-shoot digital cameras is extensive, and the F550 is the newest of the lot. This camera boasts a number of fun features to augment casual picture-taking, while offering a quality imaging system to produce excellent results.

Sleek, elegant design ; Wide range of magnification ; Wide variety of specialty modes built in ; Excellent LCD screen

Attracts dust and fingerprints ; Noisy sensor ; Confusing shooting options ; Poor interface design

There is nothing special about this camera that sets it apart from the wide array of competition. It's not particularly elegant to use, and I would expect confusion from someone who is not familiar in a basic way with how to operate a digital...

Lab Test: Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR Digital Camera Review


Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR packs versatile lens and fast AF in pocket-sized body

Slim and good looking ; Snappy performance (for JPEGS) ; Versatile lens, handy shooting modes

RAW write speeds too slow ; Video focusing too erratic ; Strange burst mode options

The Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR is good looking, well specified camera, that at its best takes appealing photos, while offering 1080p video and GPS. So long as it’s used in JPEG mode, the F550EXR is also a fairly snappy performer and it offers...

FinePix F550EXR


We researched dozens of compact digital cameras, looking for the best ones, and when we found the FinePix F550EXR by Fujifilm, we knew we'd found the winner. This camera takes fantastic pictures and has tons of settings that let you mix and match with...

Fujifilm's F550EXR is loaded with features such as GPS Geotagging and Pet Detection to help make taking photos easy and fun for all users

The flash is quite weak and may not work well in all lighting situations

The high number of fun features and pristine photo quality make the FinePix F550EXR our favorite compact digital camera.

Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR


The 16-megapixel Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR has a 15x optical zoom in addition to both manual control and RAW shooting capabilities. It also has a built-in GPS for geotagging your images and high-speed video and burst modes, but image and video quality...

When it works.


I would NOT recommend this camera to anybody, not because the camera doesn't take good pictures, but IF you have a problem, fuji is not worth their salt.

When it works it takes a great picture, and is very fast

I am very dissatisfied with Fuji film repair... Owned the camera a month and a half, and it started to develop a dark spot in all the pictures when the light is bright/using flash, Sent it into repair, and it came back with a BIGGER dark spot, so I...
