Summary: First camera arrived promptly but was defective and disposed of as they directed. Second camera arrived promptly with letter saying it was not exactly new but was tested. It seems to work well and is unmarked. Long term usage on vacation will tell if it is as good as we got from our past version of this camera. Company performance so far has otherwise been impressive.
Summary: Great little camera. I have the earlier version the F550EXR and this new model I much quicker on start up, the flash pop up feature is a much better design. Photos are notably sharper then it's predecessor.
Summary: The picture quality is fantastic. The video quality is lacking. I bought this primarily for taking videos. Even when the depth of field did not change the camera would continually change focus resulting in blurry videos. Mind you, when it was focused properly, the image was fantastic.
Summary: For the price, this camera is fantastic. It's body feels cheap, but it takes good pictures and the zoom is fantastic for a pocket sized camera. We got it in white because for some odd reason, white was nearly half the price of the black camera. Huh? Image stabilization is good, and low-light performance is good for such a small camera, so it does about as good as it can for such a small sensor.
Summary: I got this camera in black as I have a red one and a white one and like them a lot. This camera has several advanced settings, exr easy auto and some custom settings. It can take some very nice and vivid pictures. Well worth having if you want more than than just a point and shoot.
