Fujifilm F550 EXR 3

At 24mm the F550 EXR is able to fit plenty in.

(1/280sec @ f/10, ISO 200, AWB)

Fujifilm F550 EXR 4

At its maximum 360mm reach, a fast shutter speed combined with the camera's built-in image stabilisation technology has helped to keep edges fairly sharp, although detail remains less resolved. A high UV haze doesn't particularly help, though.

(1/1000sec @ f/5.3,

Fujifilm F550 EXR 1

Using

(1/340sec @ f/7.1, ISO 100, AWB)

Fujifilm F550 EXR 2

Despite being taken in direct sunlight, the F550 has accurately metered this beach scene to produce a good, even result.

(1/350sec @ f/7.1, ISO 100, AWB)

Fujifilm F550 EXR 2

This image of pink Bluebells was taken in the shade using the Velvia film simulation style.

(1/60sec @ f/5.2, ISO 320, AWB)

Fujifilm F550 EXR 4

We really should have used a smaller aperture for this beach scene, however the F550 has helped us to get away with our mistake by producing an image that is surprisingly sharp corner-to-corner.

(1/1800, F/3.5, ISO 200, AWB)

Fujifilm F550 EXR 1

This shot of a garden pond was taken during overcast skies and flat light. However the Velvia film simulation option has lifted the greens and yellows.

(1/140sec @ f/3.5, ISO 100, AWB)

Fujifilm F550 EXR

The F550 enjoys an excellent Macro mode that allows to you to get really close to your subject and still keep them sharp.

(1/125sec @ f/3.5, ISO 100, AWB)

Fujifilm F550 EXR

We had a lot of fun with the Panorama mode. It can be used to record 120, 180 or 360-degree panoramas with a single button press simply by panning the camera in the right direction.

(160-degrees, 1/550sec @ f/8, ISO 200, AWB)

Fujifilm F550 EXR 5

Taken after sunset in failing light at ISO 1600 using the High ISO & Low Noise option from the EXR shooting menu, the F550 has produced a pretty good result.

(1/90sec @ f/3.8, ISO 1600, AWB)

Fujifilm F550 EXR

This image was also taken in failing light at ISO 1600, this time with the Pro Low-Light shooting mode from the Advanced shooting menu. The F550 has again delivered a good result.

(1/20 @ f/4.9, ISO 1600, AWB)

Always on GPS vs. On when camera is on - GPS will go through a full cold acquisition if it's moved more than about a hundred miles when turned off. If you leave it on during transit (assuming it can see the satellites) it can do a quick warm startup at the other end. It will hammer the battery though.

This would be tempting if I'd not just got a Panasonic TZ8. I've spent far too much on cameras recently, but maybe next year...

This is a great travel cam, admittedly it had some problems in the beginning, as Fuji seem to be having some quality control issues, but after a few firmware updates the battery and GPS are working fine on my unit!
Only had it about 3 months, and once I'd worked out a few settings, like only shooting in "M" image size (8mp) it started to exceed my expectations!
I've taken it to concerts, flower shows, nature walks and on holiday to Portugal, and it's been so much fun to use I left my HS10 at home!
You can see some of my pics on my blog; toptravelgear.blogspot.com
Would recommend this to anyone wanting an ultra compact travel cam, it has a very useful lens and feature set, better in low light that I'm used to, and not too shabby at Macro either......eight and a half out of ten from me :-)

Being a novice in the world of picture taking, I am trying to learn the settings as suggeted by more experienced users. As a "point and shoot" camera with so many features to improve picture taking, I am anxious to apply some of these features as my experience so dictates. One of my complaints from day one (even though I turned the GPS feature "off," has been the fast depletion of power by the camera from the battery. Within less than 24 hours and few pictures taken, the battery is dead. If anyone out there have any suggestions as to how to extend the life of the battery, I would welcome them on this web site.
