Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR

 

Fujifilm's FinePix F550EXR is a feature-rich compact camera with a big 15x zoom lens. It even adds a few controls and goodies for photo enthusiasts—but its image quality is underwhelming, especially for the $350 price.

Built-in GPS. 1080p video capture. Solid low-light performance. Special Noise Reduction mode. Manual controls.

Images are soft in the outer regions. Slower-than-average boot-up time.

Video, GPS, and Conclusions The F550EXR records sharp and smooth video at 1080p at 30 frames per second. It captures video as .MOV files, which can be directly uploaded to Facebook and YouTube. You have the option to use the optical zoom lens and...

Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR Digital Camera Review

 

The F550 is a solidly built, feature packed digital camera that will not let you down. The ability to shoot in RAW and the very bountiful 15x optical zoom lens are touches that push this camera into the “premium” compact range, but cleverly manage to...

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...
