Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Sporting a 12-megapixel 1/2.3-inch CCD, a powerful Fujinon 18x wide-angle optical zoom (28mm-504mm equivalent) and an extra large 3.0-inch high-contrast LCD and electronic viewfinder, the FinePix S2550HD is perfect for advanced amateur photographers who want an affordable, step-up digital camera that will still fit in the palm of their hand.

Finepix S2550 Highlights

HD Movie Capture
Capture movies in HD-quality 720p HD. The S2550HD also has a mini HDMI Port for quick and easy connection to a home theater system.

18x Fujinon Optical Zoom Lens
The FinePix S2550HD features a Fujinon 18x wide-angle optical zoom lens that produces crisp high-resolution results throughout the focal range, from 28mm wide-angle to an astounding 504mm telephoto. They also feature Instant Zoom, which enables the user to keep their subject in a shot at long distance by offering a wide viewing area around the frame and then immediately cropping to the subject once the photo is taken.

Smile and Blink Detection
In addition to Fujifilm's signature Face Detection, Fujifilm has added two fun and valuable features: Smile Detection recognizes the precise moment your subject smiles and releases the shutter only when this happens; and Blink Detection warns you if any of your subjects have blinked so that you can re-take the photo if necessary.

Image Retrieval
Fujifilm has created a new Picture Search tool which allows you to find photos quickly and easily. You can search with both digital cameras by whichever Scene Mode the photo was taken. For instance if you select 'Portrait,' you can view all photos shot in Portrait mode, or 'Macro' to see all close up shots, etc. It's a time saving feature which means that you will no longer have to waste time searching through all your photos to find the ones you are looking for.

Additional Features

  • 3.0-inch high-contrast LCD and Electronic View Finder: The FinePix S2550HD is fitted with a high contrast 230K-pixel, 3.0-inch LCD and Electronic View Finder. The high-contrast LCD is a considerable benefit in bright light and means that the camera can be pitched at various shooting angles to enable framing of awkward shots, while the Electronic View Finder provides even more flexibility for the user.
  • Dual Image Stabilization: Long-zoom cameras need stabilization more than any other compact, with handshake and subject movement a particular problem in low light at telephoto range. The FinePix S2550HD reduces blur to a minimum with a mechanically stabilized CCD sensor and high ISO sensitivity (to ISO 6400), so that blur is reduced to an absolute minimum.
  • Face Detection and Automatic Red-eye Removal: To provide perfectly exposed and focused portrait shots, the FinePix S2550HD is fitted with Fujifilm's latest Face Detection technology which is able to track up to 10 faces simultaneously, at almost any angle to the camera. The system instantly corrects red-eye and then saves both the original and the corrected image file automatically.

I read the negative review about the bad imaging experienced with this camera. Well, yesterday I got the camera and went about taking some test shots to check for the indicated problems. If verified, I intended to box it up and send it back. I had sort of made a mistake when ordering it, and actually thought I was ordering another Fuji model that had more favorable reviews.

Anyway, I took a bunch of pictures using many of the special features available with the camera. I was particularly attentive to shots taken at or near maximum zoom and closeups using the macros. I intentionally was a bit careless taking several shots of distinct objects using maximum zoom-- the results were most pleasing; only a couple of the 3 dozen shots were blurred. I also took aim at three of my neighborhood dog-friends who never stand still and the camera rendered them absolutely rigid. So, I rate the image stabilization as very good. The close-ups were also surprisingly good and I didn't bother with using a tripod or anything else to take the shots.

So, I have trashed the box and will keep the camera. It does a super job with the things I want it to do. Ansel Adams may have insisted upon something better, but I am very pleased with it.

This is the most versatile camera for the most reasonable amount of money I've ever had. Photography is a hobby for me, not a profession, so I want to be able to experiment with manual control, yet point and shoot with the family and pets so pictures will be spontaneous instead of posed. There is nothing wanting in the quality of the images. While the materials may be lighter than most high-end cameras, that's very much what I like about it. It's well-made, if almost TOO small, and you don't feel like you're dragging around a boat anchor all day. I have a more expensive "prestigious" camera, but may as well sell it for all the use it gets, because this is the one I use all the time.

I was looking to replace the crappy Vivitar compact we bought a couple years ago. That camera just would not lock autofocus onto anything in compact florescent lighting, and was very finicky to focus in natural light as well. I wanted to get something better than a compact, and after a little bit of looking, settled onto the FujiFilm S2550HD. I have used it for a few days now, and am very happy to report that the results are very good.

I loved:
-18x zoom lens
-quickly locking auto focus
-robust selection of pre-built modes (which is how my wife will use it)
-the ability to go into manual everything (which is where I will likely be living)
-accurate color capture in outdoor daylight settings and the ability to do manual white balance in other lighting just in case the presets are off
-usage of cheap AA cells and support for vanilla SDHC cards
-bright and big 3" LCD and an electronic viewfinder when the light was too bright to use the LCD (this is where the other manufacturers have cut features)

I did not particularly like:
-only two aperture settings to select from
-results at high ISO settings were too noisy to be very useful
-lens cap was not threaded preventing attaching any filters or accessories
-only the basic manual in the box, when the full manual would have cost pennies more to include instead

I haven't tried using it for video shooting yet, but it's a good ability to have in a pinch to take some clips. The price is what sold me as well, as this model provided features that were much more in line with other bridge cameras that sold for more money. I also seriously looked at some entry level DSLR models, but could not justify the fact that I would have had to spend at least twice as much, to just get started down that path. This one versatile camera should serve us quite well compared to the alternatives during our family vacations.

I mostly bought this camera for the 18x zoom feature; the most zoom for the money I found and though I never owned a fuji camera, I figured the Fuji was at least a pretty good camera. Was I ever shocked at the features it has for the price. I does everything and does it well. It had a ton of features and looked complicated to use at first but is one of the easiest cameras to set up and use that I've had. Just have to learn a few buttons to use it. The design of everything on the camera in ingenious, everything is exactly where it should be, easy to reach while using and feels like a real camera, not a toy. This model has a red light beam to target the subject when shooting in dark or low light situations; this can mean the difference in getting a good photo in a dark room when there is not enough light to see the subject in the display. You don't have to look at the display, press the shutter button all the way down and release, put the red beam on the subject and the camera will do the rest without you having to look at the display at all. It will give you enough time to line up your shot before taking the photo. I've gotten many more good pics using this.
The only negatives I found about the camera is that the lens cap ocasionally falls off and the strap
is a little on the cheap side; it got so twisted up I removed it. The camera itself overcomes the complaint here and a replacement strap is cheap.
The camera is good enough to use professionally, within it's abilities, and there is no way to beat this one for the price; it has many features of cameras costing much more. If I were a pro needing to use the high priced cameras they use, this Fuji would be my backup. This one's a deal.
