Fujifilm FinePix E550 Review

Review Date: Jan 3, 2005

Fujifilm FinePix E550 Zoom

Category: Serious Amateur

The Fujifilm FinePix E550 Zoom is a brand new design for Fujifilm with an ergonomic shape that provides a secure and comfortable grip, a large 2-in. LCD monitor, and a 4x optical zoom.

The E550 has 6.3 megapixel resolution (on a 1/1.7 in. Super CCD HR image sensor), macro as close as 7.5 cm (3 in.), Area Focus to make focusing on off-center subjects easy, and full exposure flexibility.

Shutter speed ranges from 3 - 1/2,000 sec. (depending on exposure mode), Scene Modes make it easy to obtain the right exposure in different situations, and Movies are recorded (with sound) at 640x480 pixels, 30 frames/sec. The E550 is PictBridge-compatible.

The Fujifilm FinePix E550 will appeal to beginner and serious amateur photographers desiring an easy-to-use digital camera that can be used in Auto mode, as well as providing full exposure flexibility for those who want to learn and improve their creative skills in digital photography.
