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. Whilst feature set includes premium camera options such as GPS geotagging, film simulation and 1080p FULL HD video, all standard in the Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR, it's the build quality and image...
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 . So before you write off the Finepix F550 EXR and its hefty $349.95 price tag, there are a few things to consider.
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: 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.
Cons: Annoying pop-up flash; fiddly buttons; some issues with picture noise at higher sensitivity settings.
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. The manual mode lets you tweak the shooting settings to your own preferences.
Excerpt: Funktionerne imponerer og specielt erfarne fotografer sætter pris på manuelle indstillinger og RAW-formatet. Det gør desværre, at brugervenligheden lider under det, da der er blevet for mange menuvalg og knapper at holde styr på. GPS-tagging af billederne er imidlertid praktisk, og kameraet ligger godt i hånden, selv om det er forholdsmæssigt tungt.
Pros: GPS, RAW-format, Manuelle indstillinger
Cons: Kaotiske menuer, Lige lovlig mange knapper, Irriterende blitz
