"Love this camera!" Does everything it says it will, and then some. Is somewhat pricey and bulky to use for someone who needs a camera seldomly but when you use this, photos turn out perfectly. Best to learn how to use all the features and also on how totaled great photo with an SLR. Look online for great deals or buy from your local camera store if they offer free lessons with your purchase. (read more)

I'm an architect. Our office Fuji S5500 has incredibly now taken 18,000 shots since April 2005 and is still going strong. That means it's incredibly reliable and robust... it's had to be. It feels great, it has a great zoom. Photos generally are as good as you might expect. Switch-on and shutter lag delay times are OK for cameras of the era, but not as good as I would prefer. In auto mode it's quick and easy to use, but manual settings are fiddly and you'll forget how to use them if you... (read more)

The Fuji Finepix S5500 is a great camera, versatile, easy to use, acceptable shutter lag, good optics. It offers a range of working options from fully auto to shutter/apeture priority, 10X optical zoom, bracketing, movie option etc. enough to suit everyone from the happy snapper to the serious enthusiast. My only, very small, criticism is that the selection dial can move fairly easily and sometimes ends up unnoticed on a different setting to that expected. A lift then turn option would... (read more)

I bought the Fuji Finepix S5500 digital camera about 9 months ago, and I have been very impressed with it! It's my third digital camera, and by far the best. It has all the features and controls you could ask for, and it is a nice size to hold, with a good flash built in. (read more)

I bought Fuji FinePix S5500 about 5-6 months ago. I paid for 2000NIS (~430$).
It is my first digital camera.
First impression is great, camera has great design, it's very comfortable to hold, all controls and buttons are on a right place.
It's very easy to use this camera, it is suitable for beginners, and there are features that will please advanced photographers.
The camera can function on fully automatic mode, flexible program or on priority modes such as shutter and aperture. It has good... (read more)

Upgraded to the Fuji Finepix S5500 from my s3000 which was great unless I needed to have some control over the image. Bought the S5500 for £190 in June 05, and it gives me all that and more! Lens is fast, and zoom is easy to control. If zoomed right in, then auto mode will not always cope, especially in poor light, but shutter priority and higher ISO generally does the job, or else using a tripod is even better. Had considered a camera with IS for this, but couldn't find one I liked, with a... (read more)

I bought my Fuji Finepix S5500 Digital Camera just a week ago, but I love it already!
I am not a professional photographer, but the quality of the shots are just exciting. I still encounter problems when taking photos in dark conditions, but the problem is my hands I think. (read more)

Although far from a professional photographer, I managed to work out the advanced features in a short while, and this camera rather flatters my lack of skill when it feels like it.
However in low light conditions it usually does the opposite, unfortunately, given I use it in many low-light locations such as abandoned buildings. With a tripod, and the camera's powerful flash though, it's fine.
Clumsiness means I've dropped this camera countless times, but it keeps on working and shows just... (read more)

Bought this Fuji Finepix S5500 digital camera a few months ago and I just can't stop snapping away!
I was looking to upgrade from my old 35mm SLR and cheap digi, but the higher priced Digital SLR's were out of my range.
This camera caught my eye, and with all the excellent reviews it has got in various places, decided it was the one for me!
I'm not disappointed! This is an excellent camera in almost every way.
The quality of the images, and colour it captures are outstanding.
You can... (read more)

The Fuji Finpix S5500 is a great camera which gives great results time and time again.
First of all it looks and feels like a 35mm SLR and also feels rugged with its rubber coating. A lot of thought has gone in to the design with its indents to accommodate your fingers and thumb making it easy and comfortable to hold and with all the buttons being sensibly placed for easy access.
It has a multitude of settings: Full automatic, program, program shift, shutter priority, aperture priority,... (read more)

I have given ten out of ten on the score board for the Fuji Finepix S5500 due to the fact that my negative points are from my own lack of digital knowledge and I can't discredit the camera at all. It's a great buy and a whole lot of goodies in one bag. I feel frustrated due to the fact I'm a newbie to the digital scene so therefore I'm gonna lose out on some great features of the camera due to me not knowing what they do or where they are. I find it very funny I'm sure you will, especially... (read more)

I bought this superb camera as an upgrade from my Sony DSC P10 because I wanted more control of my camera's settings and a greater zoom. The S5500 was a bargain - I simply looked up the cheapest prices online and took them into the leading UK chain of camera shops. They obligingly matched the prices so I picked the S5500 up for £216 and a 512mb XD Card for £39.
So far so good.
I have just returned from holiday in NZ and have taken about 4,000 pictures with it. Some of them... (read more)

I am an old SLR user who recently changed over to a basic Kodak digital camera and liked the format so much I decided to upgrade to the Fuji Finepix S5500 and am I glad I did.
This is an excellent amateur photographer's camera in the right price bracket.
The Quality is outstanding and I am very happy with my new camera. (read more)

OK... I committed a cardinal sin, I bought my camera off QVC UK ... and what a great bargain I got. At only £299 for the camera pack, plus a Leather Carry Case, an extra 128MB Xd Card and a Fuji Euro Fast Charger & 4 Rechargeable Batteries, it puts the so called Specialist Camera dealers to shame... and I'm well chuffed with this mighty little camera.
Straight out the box I was snapping away, with great results, which improved when I started to read the User Manuel (bet you've been there... (read more)
