Summary: I bought a Fujifilm E510 from Best Buy for $299 last year, and I liked it so much, I bought the E550 from Amazon and paid just $5 more for a superior camera. Both cameras have the same faults that Loren mentioned, yet they are "keepers".
Summary: I use this camera mostly indoor with flash. I've taken only about 100 photos with it so far. What I like: - fast start - uses AA batteries - decent flash pictures at wide angle - 2" LCD - simple to use menu - no shutter lag and quick postview Don't like: - slow flash recycle time - flimsy popup...
Summary: Ok.. I wanted a camera that was light, could fit in my pocket, used the AA batteries or the NIMH AA batteries, and of course could take great pictures. The Canon A95 almost fits the bill, but it used 4 AA batteries while the Fuji and Sony use 2 AA batteries, and is a little too big and heavy.
Summary: The spec of this camera is very good, but the build quality leaves much to be desired, such as: 1.) Flimsy pop-up battery. The button is shallow to pop-up the battery and the flash mechanism is built of flimsy plastic.
Summary: The Fuji E-550 digital camera is Fuji's first digital camera aimed specifically at the consum digitaL camera market. It delivers a lot for the price. With 6mp and 4X optical zoom this digital camera has a lot of advance features such as a raw image format and a manually set white balance in addition...
Excerpt: Flexibility is the key strenght of this camera - if you have an interest in taking more than just 'snaps', you can learn so much from experimenting with the manual mode. Menu system is good, but I do still forget whether I need to look in the main menu or the 'F' menu for some functionality!
Pros: Suites everybody - novice to serious amatuer
Excerpt: This is a great camera reasonably priced for every day photos. I purchased this camera over 3 years ago and it has served me well for holiday snaps and the like. Landscape and sporting photos come out brilliantly on this camera. It captures moving objects surprisingly well.
Excerpt: A truly fine camera! With auto, night, fast-action, landscape, video and macro (close-up) settings along with fully adjustable manual modes, this camera has allowed me to capture some great shots in many conditions.
Pros: Easy to use with versatility of a more expensive camera - great for an improving photographer
