Fuji Finepix F550 EXR
29 September 2011
Summary: The EXR technology lets the F550 EXR capture images in one of three mode: While some may be disappointed that the increase to 16 megapixels has increased image, which is not so destructive until ISO 800, the Fuji Finepix F550 EXR remains a really good camera with a solid all-around performance and exceptional image quality using its 8 megapixels EXR modes.
Pros: Low image noise in EXR-SN mode, Superb dynamic-range in EXR-DR mode, Virtually distortion free, No noticeable vignetting, Excellent resistance to chromatic aberrations, Excellent automatic white-balance, Good color accuracy, Reliable exposure, Superb stabilization, Fast and responsive, Quick and accurate focus, Good GPS performance, Great LCD visibility, Solid build quality
Cons: Above average image noise at 16 MP, Strong blurring starting at ISO 1600 at 16 MP, Strong corner softness near wide-angle, Complex interaction of features, strange limits, User-interface rather twisted, LCD does not keep up during continuous drive, No physical aperture, Not exposure-priority, Video recording delay, Slow video autofocus, Mode-dial easy to change accidentally
Conclusion: Fujifilm's FinePix F550EXR is a feature-rich compact camera with a big 15x zoom lens. It even adds a few manual controls and goodies for photo enthusiasts—but its image quality is underwhelming, especially for the $350 price.
Pros: Built-in GPS. 1080p video capture. Solid low-light performance. Special Noise Reduction mode. Manual controls.
Cons: Images are soft in the outer regions. Slower-than-average boot-up time.
Summary: Die Fujifilm Finepix F550 EXR Bilder speichert Bilder neben JPEG auch im RAW-Format. Damit unterstreicht der Hersteller den semiprofessionellen Anspruch der Kamera, genauso wie mit der langen Ausstattungsliste, aus der ein GPS-Empfänger und die Möglichkeit zur Dynamikerweiterung hervorzuheben sind.
