Nice but not perfect

Summary: Not really disappointed, but after having had Canon POS cameras, there are a few conveniences that I miss. With the Fuji, you cannot review photos taken without turning the camera on and extending the lens. Also, the SD card isn't easy to remove unless you have fingernails to grasp and pull it out. For some reason, it must have a different program for videos, as I can't get them moved into Picasa, they go somewhere else that I haven't found yet.
Summary: I remember taking this camera down to a place called Dumbo in Brooklyn NY to get shots of lower Manhattan across the East river in the area of where the old WTC use to be.. There's a mode on this camera called " ADV." and in there is a "Pro Low light" section that's great. I'm not a pro but taking shots in the dark made me feel like a pro .. I could not believe the clarity in the pitch black night that i was getting,just incredible ..!
Summary: I bought this camera prior to a trip to Washington, DC in August to replace an old Fuji S3000. I've been extremely pleased with the camera. I really like the zoom and the anit-shake capabilities. In low light conditions, the anti-shake doesn't work every time but I don't expect it to. My biggest complaint (and the reason I give it a 4 star) is that the battery life is unpredictable. Most times, the battery will run down in two or three days with no useage.
Summary: Received camera Thursday, been playing with it for a couple of days ---heading on a mini vacation this week and will give it a real workout. Why purchased...do a lot of traveling and my main Camera is a Canon 40d with several different lenses. When with a group take the most suitable for framing pictures with the Canon. When I wander on my own don't want to look like a tourist I carry a P&S that just fits in my pocket.
Early Impressions from Day One - Review FinePix F550EXR
1 November 2011
Summary: 11/2012 update. Unfortunately, the lens stopped retracting properly on our yellowstone trip in August and the camera was stolen from our rental car. Big bummer to have lost the photos; at least the thief got a non functioning camera. i see from later reviews that this lens problem is common. Before bashing Fuji, i see similar complaints with Canon (S100 for example). Hoping to find a viable replacement. I couldn't wait to use this camera for the first time.
Summary: I came to this camera from a F10. The F10 makes great pic's, but a lot of them would be blurry. So I got this new one for vacation to get more quality pictures. Took this one on a cruise and it was great. I'm not even remotely close to being a photographer, just your average Joe. I wanted a camera that would take great pic's without all the blur, just point, shoot, and move on to the next thing.
Excerpt: After studying the market for almost 1/2 year, I finally decided to get a F550EXR. Why? Because I realised that for the best Cameras in Range ( Exilim EX-ZR100, Canon SX230, Fujifilm F550EXR, Panasonic DMC-TZ22 ) you will always find reviews complementing their image quality, usability and advanced technology and you will find reviews, destroying the cameras reliability, its image quality and everything else about it.
Solid camera, still leaves a little to be desired.

Summary: Things I like: Super fast zoom and focus Takes picture fast and is quickly ready to take another picture Great battery life Easy to navigate menus Solid hardware Things i dont like as much... GPS does take a long time to locate...i can use the always on function but have been worried how it would affect battery life. I am a novice photographer...so i like an excellent automatic mode...this one seems to be "pretty good". Im still getting a blurry picture here and there.
