Fujifilm FinePix E550 Zoom Review

The FinePix E550 Zoom was announced at the end of July 2004. The E550 is essentially the same camera as the FinePix F810 (see note below) in a less expensive plastic body, and without the widescreen LCD or 16:9 shooting mode, AA batteries instead of a Li-Ion pack and USB 1.1 rather than 2.0. The E550's sensor is the fourth generation of the now well-established Super CCD technology, offering 12.3MP output from 6.3 million effective pixels. Like the F810 the new camera offers a 4x optical zoom (32.5-130mm equiv.), fast operation and a fairly comprehensive array of manual controls in a compact, traditionally-styled body.

  • Newly-developed 1/1.7- inch Super CCD HR sensor with 6.3 million effective pixels (delivering 12.3 million recorded pixels)
  • Wide angle 4x optical zoom lens (32.5mm - 130mm equiv.)
  • High resolution 2.0-inch LCD
  • Full range of exposure controls (P/S/A/M)
  • Wide range of ISO settings (80/100/200/400/800)
  • VGA movie recording at 30 fps with sound
  • RAW file format
  • Fast start-up and operation
