Fujifilm FinePix S5500

 

If you're after competitively priced digital camera with a big optical zoom and a decent feature set, then check out this FinePix model.

Fuji FinePix S5500

 

One of the first things that hit you removing the S5500 from its box is its size; it's very compact and its styling makes its handling extremely accomplished. Rubberised grips on its key handling surfaces - the right hand grip for example - make it...

Design and handling are great, the lens offers plenty of scope and the colour screen is small but (almost) perfectly formed.

The EVF is poor and the camera eats alkaline AA batteries faster than a swarm of locusts.

The 5500's a pleasing little camera (bar the EVF) that rewards your efforts with nice shots. The AF is a tad slow for my liking and the lack of image stabilization means, at longer focal lengths, camera shake rears its ugly head; a tripod will be a...

Fujifilm - FinePix S5500 Zoom

 

Mention the phrase 'digital camera' and too often the immediate image that comes to mind is of a lightweight, flat, rectangular piece of hardware that carries an uncanny resemblance to those throwaway instant cameras picked up ...

If you want more from a digital camera than just good quality snapshots and want to recapture the enjoyment and control you had from your old SLR, the S5500 Zoom should be on your list.

Fuji Finepix S5500

 

Fuji Finepix S5500 Review. Super zoom digital camera with four megapixels and a ten times zoom lens. Suited to wildlife and sports photography.

Good all round picture quality ; Attractive and well built ; Easier to use than similar cameras

Purple fringing and loss of colour when zoom extended

There is lots to like about the Fuji Finepix S5500. As well as its 10x optical zoom lens it also remains very ease to operate for this type of digital camera.

Review of the Fuji FinePix S5500 - Digital SLR Reviews

 

For those who like the look of SLR cameras but find them too big the S5500 is well worth considering.

Fujifilm FinePix S5100

 

It's speedy and takes excellent pictures with a minimum of fuss, and it would be an unbeatable value if it had antishake technology.

Affordable, compact and speedy. Takes bright, crisp, and well-exposed pictures. RAW support and an AF assist lamp.

Lacks important refinements, like antishake technology, a real-time histogram, and a hot shoe. Manual focus is inconvenient to use. Small (1.5-inch) LCD. Uses less common xD memory format. Charger and rechargeable batteries not included.

When we reviewed the S5500/5100's predecessor a year ago, Phil commented 'Throughout my time with the S5000 I was left wondering what would have been like had Fujifilm used a standard four or five megapixel CCD'.
