Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR Digital Camera Review
14 August 2011
Conclusion: 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 keep the price range below.
Summary: A list of features as long as your arm and an equally lengthy optical zoom all work in the Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR's favour. But this superzoom has a number of flaws that prevent it from achieving greatness.
Pros: Long, 15x optical zoom; built-in GPS; 1080p video recording; raw support.
Cons: Annoying pop-up flash; fiddly buttons; some issues with picture noise at higher sensitivity settings.
Excerpt: It’s easy to feel like there’s a price ceiling when it comes to point-and-shoots: If you spend too little, you’ll be replacing the thing every six months. Spend too much and you’ll end up feeling like you may as well have sprung for a DSLR .
Pros: Quick shutter, Impressive display resolution, Simultaneous RAW and JPEG capture, Intuitive physical and digital UI
Cons: Battery life, Some might be scared off by its size – a little too big for the average pocket, Digital noise above ISO 1,600, Price – paying more over $300 for a point-and-shoot can be a hard sell
Summary: The fujifilm FinePix F550EXR is a well-constructed, feature-packed and fun camera to use. The ability to shoot raw is a plus, but the camera's image quality is on a par with the best in its class rather than being a leader.
Summary: The Fujifilm F550 EXR is a mash-up of two types of compact camera: the super-zoom and the premium compact. Despite its slim, pocket-friendly dimensions, it totes a 15x optical zoom lens alongside a bevy of high-end features, including enthusiast-attracting full manual mode and RAW shooting.
Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR builds on the success of the previous F300 model with a new 16 megapixel EXR sensor, which expands the ISO range up to 12,800, offers fast continuous shooting speeds and slow-motion movies, and adds full 1080p HD movies.
Excerpt: Le F550EXR est sur le papier, très alléchant. Malgré son zoom particulièrement puissant (15X), l’appareil est resté très compact et se classe parmi les modèles les moins encombrants des super-zooms. Nouveau haut de gamme des compacts Fujifilm, le F550EXR est sur le papier, très alléchant.
Pros: Grand angle et zoom puissant, Nombreux réglages possibles, Esthétique réussie
Cons: Tendance à la surexposition, Un peu complexe
