Well it is a old camera now but still going strong. Still use it at times takes great snap. Results are sharp and punchy. Will keep this well built camera.

Purchased when first introduced (nearly 6 years ago) and still going exactly as well as when brand new. Not one single problem from this camera. Prints are fantastic, up to 8x10 (largest that we've ever printed). I originally thought that the flimsy feeling battery/card door would fail in short order, but it's never been a problem. Problems: None

Very impressive Fuji camera with full manual controls, RAW mode, easy adjustments, useful exposure bracketing function. It's well built and takes great photos

I've had the E550 for over a year, and love it, I have been looking to upgrade to a SLR Type. I see NO better camera to up grade to, other than an DSLR. 2 things I wish it had: Electronic View finder Hot Shoe but paying $3-400 for a new camera just to get those features ain't worth it. Just compare the E550 with any other 3-$400 camera. Plust you can buy one now for as low as $90(newegg.com) to $125. I paid $300. Problems: None

I'm a BIG fan of this camera. I bought a FujiFilm FinePix e550 for my mom in Spring 2006, it was a closeout sale at B&H. I gave it a "test run" at a birthday party and I fell in love with it so I bought one for myself on eBay, as B&H nor any other place had any units left by that time. My other digital camera is a Nikon D100 SLR. The eBay e550 I bought was a factory refurbished model which came with 4 AA rechargeable batteries, a charger, a case, all the cables, software, plus a Fuji ...

Zoom Error . . My camera was brand new. After taking approx. 30 pictures, I received a Zoom Error. Though Fuji gave tips on how to correct this, none worked. I had to send camera for repair. It's been over a month, and I'm still waiting for the return of my camera. I have been reading many other reviews of this problem occuring. Would not recommend camera. Not dependable. I also find it not very user friendly. Problems: Zoom Error. See above.

Overall I like this camera but it is mechanically unreliable. See problems Problems: After about 3 months the lens jammed (zoom error) and rendered the camera unusable. After a month at the repair center I got it back and used it another 4 months when I experenced the same problem. This time we were at Disney World with our grand children. Needless to say we were upset. We sent the camera back to the repair center a second time. They replaced our E-550 with a new F-10. We'll see how this one ...

I've had this camera for approx a year now. Image quality-wise I've had excellent results. I own a Nikon D-70, a Nikon 7900, a Kyocera/Yashica Lv3 (all excellent digital cameras), but the Fuji E550 is definitely up there with the best of them, and at times exceeds their picture quality, too. The flash is acceptable; I shoot predominantly with the 6mp (tried the 12mp -- very good, but takes up too much space on my memory card.) I recently purchased the E900 Fuji, but for some reason had ...

This is not a true 12MP camera. The sensor and built-in processing make 12MP equivalent images. Actual image quality is quite good, except for low-light situations - these are terribly dark and noisy, even at ISO80 and even with a flash. The built-in flash is a bit weak and there's no hotshoe. Brighter locations fare better. But nagging aside, this thing produces some very good images that can be blown up considerably because its built-in compression isn't as overzealous as what other ...

I've had the camera for 6 months and almost 7000 shots. Taken ~20Gb video too. Took it to Russia for a few weeks with a 20GB battery-powered downloader (try JALDigital.com.au). Great value, no problems just a few complaints (see below). Takes really sharp pictures except when struggling for light then it gets speckly. Fast startup compared to my old Kodak 6440, but even so it could be faster. I love the option of an 800ASA speed - just wish it really were. Would I buy another one if this ...
