Thanks to a brand new hybrid sensor, the FinePix F550 EXR delivers extra fast, high quality results in a wide range of lighting conditions. The 16 megapixel sensor developed by Fujifilm is a clever combination of Back Side Illuminated CMOS (BSI-CMOS) and EXR technologies, which delivers superior results to a conventional sensor; particularly in low light conditions, and also offers high-speed shooting facilities and Full HD movie capture. Light falling on ordinary sensors has to pass through a layer of wiri

It has full White Balance selection (AUTO is excellent, too) and various scene modes, Portrait and Panorama modes.
But it also shoots RAW, if you want, for extreme versatility in 'post-processing' after you've shot ..and has GPS (you can switch that off) to identify WHERE pictures are taken.
'P A S M' gives full Aperture-priority, Speed-priority, Manual or Program/Personal/Pro settings, and Movie mode offers FullHD at 1920x1080 30 frames per second.
This is a small, light, inconspicuous pocket camera, with performance up to - or exceeding - many big bulky SLRs or small interchangeable-lens 'Compact System Cameras' like the Sony NEX, Panasonic compacts, etc. Anti-shake, perfect fill-in built-in flash, excellent auto white balance, very quick and accurate auto-focus, SDXC (enormous storage capability) memory card compatibility, compact size, light weight, self-timer, macro/close-up facility, this is a fraction of the size of the Fuji X100, but with many more capabilities and a 15x zoom, but with a physically-smaller sensor. Brilliant for everything!
(The cheaper F500 is identical, but without RAW and GPS. The F505 has identical RAW, but no GPS.)
If there is anything negative about this camera (and I am really nit-picking here) it would be ... (1) battery life - one day if taking lots of pics and using the GPS, which I turn off now, (2) placement of the pop-up flash - slightly annoying but you get used to it, and (3) the autofocus when using the video - best to keep the Movie AF Mode on Center. Very minor issues to me because as I said earlier .. image quality was the key feature for me and is probably for every photographer. All in all, this purchase was so worth it and I would highly recommend it to all my family and friends.
Now on to the camera, I will add to this review as I use it more as I have only had a chance to play with it for an hour or so but I just wanted to add first thoughts to mention a couple of things. I had read about two issues, the flash always popping up and the poor focusing when using the video. The flash does always pops up when you turn the camera on, and seemed to also do this when switching to another setting if you had been on one setting for a while. I thought this would be really annoying as since the camera is quite small and slim your fingers tend to grip it where the flash comes up. But, in fairness, although initially annoying, if you keep your finger over the flash, it stays in place as it doesn't take much pressure to keep it down, so it isn't actually that much of an issue.
The video is though. I'd seen clips on YouTube showing the video defocussing when zooming in and out, and this does happen. Some comments say that if you have it on centre focusing this will solve it, but other comments say this is not the case, I have yet to try this. There are hints that Fuji may be working on an update to resolve the issue, but considering the cost of the camera, this really shouldn't have happened to start with, I have had a Panasonic TZ3 and I have a TZ7, both zoom in and out quite happily without defocussing.Read more ›
