Fujifilm FinePix E550 Review
Date: Jan 3, 2005
Fujifilm FinePix E550 Review is based on a production
model. All sample images are unretouched, except
28.8mm, Programmed Auto, Spot, 1/5.3 sec., F5.6
and ISO 80
The Fujifilm FinePix E550 Zoom is one
of the new generation of digital cameras that
is addressing most of the complaints leveled against
consumer digital cameras.
With 4x optical zoom, 6.3MP resolution and full
exposure flexibility, the Fujifilm E550 provides
good image quality. And first for a Fujifilm consumer
digital camera, noise is low at ISO 80 and ISO
100. Fujifilm has even provided a high ISO 800,
though at a lower 3MP resolution, with noise level
that is acceptable when it's a matter of taking
the picture or nothing.
Finally, the Fujifilm E550 is f-a-s-t!
If you miss a candid shot, it won't be because
of this camera: the lens extends in about 1 sec.
and the LCD displays in about 0.5 sec. more; shutter
lag is negligible for all practical purposes;
and shot-to-shot is about 1 sec., except for flash
pictures when it takes about 3 sec. to recharge
The Fujifilm FinePix E550 is targeted
to beginner and serious amateur photographers,
priced affordably as such, and full-featured for
those wishing to experiment and learn. If you
are looking for a wide-angle lens (slightly more
wide-angle than the standard 35mm), then check
out the E550.
