Good camera overall Love the zoom and image quality. Good colors. Camera takes few days to learn and to set up the "my menus" But when you get the hang of it you can take pictures as good as a pro. Focusing is the biggest problem for this camera... but in low light focus assist helps a bit... Cool time lapse feature :) I use tripod most of the time. This camera is worth the money and effort I'm also planning to buy extra tele-lens and converter which makes the zoom 30x Problems: Focusing - ...

i got this camera and took it back after a few days for a refund. The 18x zoom caught my eye after deciding to get a canon powershot s5, however such a small lens providing 18x zoom produced low quality shots. i was disapointed with the slow auto focus and the hard to use manual focus. i also spotted inactive pixels. Saying this the supermacro is fantastic. But I have now decided to buy a fuji S9600. i would only reccommend this camera if you dont mind some small porblems and high noise ...

I purchased this camera to replace my first digital camera; a Fuji S602Z which broke in my hands. It's lens barrel actually fell off while zooming. I was dazzled by the 550UZ's new features especially the wide angle (28mm) and the extreme zoom (100:1 with digital). I am still learning about the camera and getting aquainted with all the features. I have found that the image stabilization works great, the battery life is excellent, the image quality is good, the many scene modes work very well ...

I bought this as a replacement for my Oly CZ750-UZ which had given me trouble free fun for 3 years, producing sharp, true colour pictures with very little adjustment required on the camera or pp. I really struggled to get decent images out of the 550. At macro and the far end of the zoom it was impressive, but in between it was all over the place, with erratically exposed images, lousy focus, dodgy colours and soft images. I so wanted to like the camera, but in the end traded it in at a ...

This SP-550UZ took over from my C-750UZ. My sample has none of the faults that were reported when first released. The latest firmware fixed the remaining focussing problems. Extending the SP-550UZ lens has never sucked in any dust, and the buttons are still reliable with increased humidity. The 7 MegaPixel sensor in the SP-550UZ covers the visible spectrum better than the 4 MegaPixel sensor did in my C-75UZ. I do not have to recreate blue colours when post-processing. I only adjust for ...

I have had my SP-550 for 3 weeks now and I just love it. I chose it because of it versatility and it has not disappointed. If you are considering this camera, keep in mind what it is not. It is not a DSLR and does not have the image quality or speed of one. It is not a point and shoot and will not deliver very good results if you leave everything on auto everything and just start clicking away. There is a steep learning curve with this camera that requires some effort from the user. Once ...
