Amazing pictures!

  • Summary: Takes great pictures on auto mode. Good thing, because all of the features on this camera are new to me, and I'll probably never learn how to use them all. Has many interesting features, including the ability to take black-and-whites and that old-time yellowish-looking pictures. Takes excellent shots in low-light, and even shoots pictures of the moon and fireworks. I actually got a clear shot of a hummingbird in flight.

  • Summary: Too bad when you have it zoomed out it takes in the picture the shadow of the zoom apparatus. After that it has a dolid camera.

Sufficient for the price

Alex Jensen, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: In high light settings it takes fairly good pictures even at full zoom in my shaky hands. The settings took a little getting used to but are nice and easy to work with. There are several settings and I've had fun testing most of them. I don't really notice much of a difference with most of them though (difference between using the special setting and not is what I mean). Cons: Very hard to get a good picture in low light settings. Especially with little time.

It's a good camera

Dave in the woods, Amazon
22 April 2013
  • Summary: It has lots of features and they are easy to use as long as you remember how to get to them all. The GPS is nice but it's far from accurate. Pictures I've taken have been tagged with GPS as far as a mile off. It's like it takes a long time to catch up to where you are currently. And initial location acquisition takes a long time. Leaving the gps on all the time decreases battery time dramatically so I don't do that much.

Keeps Freezing Up!

Robin Leigh, Amazon
15 January 2012
  • Summary: This is potentailly a great camera but has a few draw backs. Before I go into those I must say that it takes really nice photographs. The first problem is that it is not very intuitive to use. Even basic functions are hard to work out without the owners manual. Even the owners manual is hard to navigate! Our main problem has been that it just freezes up for no reason at all. You take a few pictures and then ........ nothing. It just freezes.

Neat features, but its best trick is flawed

Dennis C. Smith, Amazon

  • Summary: If you look at the spec sheet for this camera, it looks like a dream come true. Although if you have experience interpreting specs you'll realize that the combination of a small sensor, a relatively slow lens, and too many megapixels will pose challenges in low light. This Fuji can't can't compete with the luxury compacts that have larger sensors, much faster lenses, and fewer megapixels: costlier pocketable cameras like the Canon S95, Olympus XZ-1, and the Panasonic...

Feature packed capable camera with some good and some bad

  • Summary: NOTE: Update firmware if you have not done it already. F550 has new firmware (v1.10 at the time of writing this review) available from Fujifilm website. This is my second review of this camera. I removed my original review to correct/update based on additional usage of the camera. Disclaimer: Currently I have Canon SD3500 (~1 year), T1i (~2 years), and Fujifilm F550 (2 weeks).

A good camera...BUT

David R. Siepel, Amazon
14 October 2011
  • Summary: Takes great photos and is easy to use. Has lots of features for a point and click....however I am using this for my job, which requires GEO-Tagging on all photos, The GPS on this camera is picky about when it gets and signal, which is unacceptable as all my photos MUST have this data or i wont get paid, when it does work it takes a HUGE toll on the battery, the camera was completely dead after 3.5 hours with power save settings.

Not Up to Expectations

Thomas Hyatt, Amazon
14 October 2011
  • Summary: After reading all the specs and looking at the details for what I was hoping would be a great camera, I have to say I am disappointed with the Fujifilm 550EXR. For me, image quality is everything so I compared the images I took with the 550 to a couple of other cameras. One was the little Panasonic DMC-FX-33 and the other was the Sony NEX5.

User Review

Rkieux, DP Review
19 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Best compact I have ever used. Amazing how far technology has advanced. But you need to know a bit about photography to find this out. I am a dslr user, so I am able to exploit the camera and push the sensor to its full capacity (simple things like watching the shutter speed to prevent camera or subject blur needs to be observed, good steady hands are needed for low shutter speeds, balancing camera vs flash exposure in manual mode for flash photography, not worrying...
