Fujifilm FinePix S2550HD Video Transcript
Hi, I'm Josh Goldman, senior editor for CNET Reviews and this is a look at the Fujifilm FinePix S2550 HD. It's a 12-megapixel camera featuring a 28 mm equivalent wide angle lens with an 18x zoom. It's priced at just under $250 but it can be found for far less than that. Other feature and highlights include a 3-inch LCD and electronic viewfinder on the back, semi-manual and manual shooting modes, 720p HD movie capture with a mini-HDMI out for connecting to an HDTV and it's powered by AA batteries. While you're not exactly going to stick this camera in a pocket, the camera is compact and comfortable to use and the controls and menus are easy to pick up after some use. Though it looks like a shrunken digital SLR, the S2550HD's shooting performance is overall slow, so trying to catch a sharp photo of a moving child or pet, for example, is a bit tricky. Also, its photo quality at higher ISOs is mediocre to poor so if indoor and low light photo quality is important, this probably isn't the best choice. It's better suited for outdoor photography and bright lighting. It is an inexpensive way to get a long zoom lens, though. If that's what's important to you, it might be worth checking out. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Fujifilm FinePix S2550 HD.
Fujifilm's FinePix HS10 has the look, feel, and controls of a dSLR, with the photos and shooting performance of a common point-and-shoot.
Fujifilm's FinePix F60fd is a nice full-featured compact camera, if you can overlook its slow shooting speed.
Don't let its new sensor technology scare you off: the Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR is an excellent compact camera with shooting features for just about every type of user.
The Fujifilm FinePix XP20 is a decent extra point-and-shoot for when you need a camera to take some abuse. But if it's going to be your one and only pocket camera, look elsewhere.
A simple, inexpensive waterproof camera to keep poolside, the Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP is nonetheless lacking in photo quality and performance.
The Fujifilm FinePix S5200 is a well-designed, well-built camera with very good performance. It's a bit large, however, and artifacts in its photos may turn off some shooters.
If you have the bucks and you want the best photo quality possible, the Fujifilm FinePix X100 delivers. But definitely try before you buy to make sure the focusing systems won't make you crazy.
A fast-shooting camera that delivers high-quality raw photos but abysmal JPEG versions.
With a ton of shooting features, a 42x zoom lens, and fast performance, this is one very nice megazoom.
Get a first look from the labs at the 6-megapixel Fujifilm FinePix F470.
Fujifilm FinePix S2550HD Review
The good: Semimanual and manual shooting modes; uses AA-size batteries; comfortable design; inexpensive for a megazoom.
The bad: Picture quality drops off above ISO 200; occasionally sluggish performance.
The bottom line: A low-cost way to get an 18x wide-angle lens, the Fujifilm FinePix S2550HD delivers merely OK photos and shooting performance.
