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,

(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)
