Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR review

 

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...

Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR

 

The Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR doesn't do things by halves. A quick browse down its specifications quickly affirms that: It has a 16-megapixel EXR CMOS sensor and wide-angle 24mm lens that extends to 360mm thanks to the 15x optical zoom. Considering its...

Big zoom from small body, RAW shooting, EXR mode on main dial, GPS

No single-point AF adjustment, image quality may be a letdown at full resolution

There are lots of high-end, mid-zoom compacts out there, but the Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR manages to deliver something unique. It’s packed to the rafters with features that set it apart from the competition and the EXR mode on the main dial is an...

Fuji FinePix F550 EXR review

 

A high-end compact with a raft of enthusiast-friendly features and GPS

Excellent image quality at low sensitivities ; Superb LCD screen ; Manual exposure control ; Raw image capture ; Automatic geo-tagging via built-in GPS

Slow start-up time ; Mode dial easily knocked off desired setting ; Small buttons ; Occasionally miss-focuses at maximum zoom

With each new update to Fujifilm's F-series, they have added features that promise to push the boundaries of what's normally expected from a compact digital camera.

Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR review

 

The 16-megapixel, 15X-optical-zoom Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR is the latest model in Fujifilm's higher-end F series, and it's appropriately packed with features. In addition to manual, semimanual, and automatic shooting modes, the F550 is one of the...

The 15X-zoom FinePix F550EXR has GPS features and in-camera extras that go beyond the norm, but its image and video quality lags a bit behind competitors.

Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR review

 

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.

Review: Fujifilm F550EXR 16 Megapixel camera with 15X zoom and GPS

 

Fujifilm is hardly mentioned in the conversation involving the best semi-pro point and shoot cameras, but it should be. We hear a lot about the stellar and compact Canon S90/S95, the Nikon P7000, the Panasonic Lumix LX5 and the Olympus XZ-1 as the...

Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR GPS Review

Full HD video, stereo sound and high speed video; High speed 8fps continuous shooting for 8 shots; Quick performance (particularly at wide angle); Huge amount of zoom in a pocket-able body; Dynamic range expansion, low noise modes; Built in vibration...

GPS lock can be slow

Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR review

 

The FinePix F550EXR is the latest generation of advanced compact camera from Fujifilm. With a newly developed 16MP EXR CMOS sensor and 15x optical zoom with RAW shooting capability, it promises a...

Sleek design, 15x optical zoom from 24-360mm, 8fps at full resolution, fast AF for a compact

While good, image quality hasn't improved from the F300EXR. Slow Raw write times
