Simple canera, easy to use, low cost..,
This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix AX550 Digital Camera (OLD MODEL) (Electronics)
I bought the AX550 for about $80 and added a $7 memory card. My previous cameras were a couple of $130 Kodak M1033's (I now know why they went out of business) and a great $280 Panasonic Lumix that I dropped in a lake. With the simple shots I take, I didn't need anything more expensive than this Fujifilm. Out of the box, it's simple, intuitive and easy to set up and use. I did read the paper manual for a few tips, but probably didn't need to if I'd taken more time to play with the camera. I'm no engineer like a previous reviewer, so I don't have a particular mind set about how something should operate. I just like simple, and this camera is just that. I get good photo's that are worthy of framing, depending on the photo paper I use, up to 5X7. Anything beyond that is grainy but that's what you get from an $80 camera. The movie mode works well and is easy to figure out. Given the cost, it's hard for me to criticize the camera, except to say it's a bit thicker than some and it's slick....hard to hold onto sometimes, but that's a problem I see with most small cameras. Someday there will be a rugged outdoor version that has a rubber-like coating and then I'll be happy. A positive about this model is that it takes AA batteries, inexpensive to replace and available at grocery stores and gas stations everywhere. So, for a simple, decent camera that does not cost much, it's been a good choice for me. I read that some reviewers got a bad AX550, units that had out-of-the-box problems. All I can say is it happens from time to time, but if the manufacturer or the seller warranties it, then it'll all work out. I tried it with Kodak and they still sent bad stuff, so I know it does not always work for the consumer. All in all, I believe this camera is a good one, considering the cost. Namaste....now go take some pictures.

If you have a Pictbridge capable printer, you'll get the date stamp. Otherwise, I don't believe so.
