Summary: The best digital camera I have bought so far. There are so many features in such a little package. I carry it where ever I go & it has always worked great for me. I keep finding new things it can do. The quality of pictures & video it takes is great for the size & ease of use.

Summary: I purchased this camera and reviewed it in Oct 05, I love it. But I have just had my first experience with the zoom error message after the lens being barely tapped on my desk. After reading all the reviews I was thinking I would have to buy another camera.
Summary: I was a bit worried about this camera after reading a bunch of complaints about lens error and some other issues. Maybe those were early versions or a bad batch, and maybe the design got tweaked ?? But I have had no problems at all.
Summary: I researched cameras for a long time weighing price, quality, and functionality all very heavily. I even used Consumer Reports to help me in my decision. I came up with the Fujifilm Finepix E550. This Camera was a great buy for the price...at first.

Summary: I am giving this camera two stars only for the absolutely terrific pictures it took WHEN IT WAS WORKING. This camera came highly recommended on all the camera review sites and consumer reports and for the first 11 months I wouldn't have traded mine for any other camera out there.
Summary: I bought this camera after it was rated a 'bestbuy' at Consumer Reports. The flash is extremely flimsy and I have never seen a point and shoot camera with such a rinky flash setup which needs to be extended before use.
Summary: I purchased my Fuji E550 brand new online and have had the same problem happen repeately. I have had FUJI repair it for free under warranty twice, but the camera just keeps failing in exactly the same manner. At first, the camera worked fine for about 6 months.
Summary: I researched this camera and found it highly recommended in Consumer Reports and had other friends that also have the same camera. They all love it but the one I recieved off of Amazon was defective because I would get this banding problem with every picture at any setting.
Summary: The photos I take with this camera have been great, however, I just experienced the same "Zoom Error" problems many have mentioned. It should definitely be factored in to your purchasing decision. To those with the Zoom Error issue - try this!
Summary: I am one of the many purchasers who likes this camera but suffered the dreaded zoom error (see the reviews of others who had the same problem). According to a Fujifilm technical service representative (who was very familiar with the problem), it occurs because the lens is designed to come out so...
