FUJI FinePix 6.3

Overstock
7 January 2008
  • Summary: This camera is listed as refurbished which is why the price is so great. However, when I received this as a gift, the LCD screen does not work, there are what appear to be watermarks and no image until the photo has been taken. I will be returning this item for a full refund.

FINEPIX E550

Myron D. Brockman, Amazon
5 July 2006
  • 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. After 4 days in the Grand Canyon the camera began vignetting and overexposing and no amount of tinkering with the exposure settings have improved this fault. All in all it has become useless.

Terrible problems with Fuji E550

Brad J. Faltermeier "FotoJunky", Amazon
1 July 2006
  • 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. After the first repair it worked for about 2 months. After the second repair it lasted LESS than one month, with very little use.

Banding Problems

Amazon Junkie, Amazon
16 April 2006
  • 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. It would look like a big fingerprint over the picture and no it wasn't my fingerprint on the lens. I tried fixing the problem by going to the fuji support site but no mention there of such problem.

"Zoom Error" is a major problem for this camera.

Ross "Ross", Amazon
6 February 2006
  • 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! I had the same problem with mine and I tried several suggestions, BUT the only one that has worked is to gently grab the lens, pull it out as far as it will go until fully extended.

  • Summary: Ik kocht mijn e550 op Tenerife. Na enkele keren gebruikt reeds zware problemen ! Namelijk het niet meer afsluiten van de lens, en bijgevolg altijd focuserror waardoor het toestel totaal onbruikbaar is . Na bij enkele Fuji delers in Belgie te zijn geweest , was er geen enkele die het probleem wist op te lossen . Bijgevolg zal ik die moeten wegwerpen in de vuilbak ! Grote schande voor Fuji !!!Intussen is de garantie verlopen , zonder dat fuji maar eens heeft omgekeken.
  • Pros: mooie foto's
  • Cons: no 50 foto's Kapot !!!

Top Bilder, aber das war's auch

Amazon
16 May 2005
  • Summary: Vor kurzem entschied ich mich, mir die E550 zuzulegen. Ich war auch wirklich voll zufrieden mit der Kamera - tolle Bilder: Farben, Schärfe, alles stimmte! Leider nur 2 Tage, dann gab die Kamera ihren Geist auf. Grund: "Zoomfehler"; wie sich nach einigen Nachforschungen herausstellte kein Einzelfall, der Fehler tritt sogar sehr häufig auf. Ich kann also nur von der Kamera abraten - auch, wenn sie wirklich gute Bilder macht.

Sehr gute Kamera mit einem fatalen Fehler

Amazon
24 April 2005
  • Summary: Ich habe die Kamera seit einer Woche, nun ist sie defekt, sie zeigt "Zoomfehler" an. Wenn Sie sich überzeugen wollen dass dies kein Einzelfall ist geben Sie einfach "E550 Zoomfehler" oder "e550 zoom error" in Google ein und Sie werden sehen, dass es sich bei mir keineswegs um einen Einzelfall handelt. Noch kurz was zur Kamera im allgemeinen: Ich halte sie für eine der besten überhaupt. Nichts hat mich an ihr gestört bis dieser Defekt autrat.
