Fujifilm T550 Digital Camera

by candy47

A small multi-functional camera, fits in the palm of your hand and it's reasonably priced. My new best friend!

Out With The Old
The time had come for us to part ways. We had a good seven years, me and my old digital camera. Sure I’ll admit that it didn’t have very many functions. Actually it didn’t have any functions other than zoom, but it was faithful right up to the end. The on/off button stopped working. I was in denial. I changed the batteries…twice. Blaming the malfunction on faulty batteries. Nothing! I had to say goodbye and begin looking for a new camera. Yes, it was a sad day.

In With The New

I prefer having a camera rather than taking pictures with my phone but I don't need anything too sophisticated, a small camera with a few functions and reasonably priced is what I was looking to buy.

Thank goodness for the internet and online shopping. I shopped online for cameras, comparing prices, product capabilities and read dozens of reviews. I wanted something that is easy to use, not too complicated yet would give me some advanced functions that I didn’t have with my other camera. I don’t need a highly technical camera since most of my photos are for personal use and posting in online articles and blogs. Last but not least was cost. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money!

The camera that met all the criteria is this Fujifilm FinePix T550. I take it everywhere I go! It’s small and slim so it easily fits in my purse and the palm of my hand.

Actually, I think I’m spending way too much time with it but every time I use it I find a feature that I hadn’t seen before. Here are a few of the functions on my Fujifilm T550:

  • Zoom lens to 12x
  • Built-in cropping tool
  • Takes photos in black and white
  • Panorama photos in 3 consecutive shots
  • Takes still photos of moving objects
  • Slow shutter speed for nighttime photos
  • Two images shot continuously with and without flash
  • Video with sound
  • and so much more!

Pictures come out clear and sharp in any environment because there is a shooting mode for just about any situation. It’s all done with the push of a button.

This is my Fujifilm FinePix T550

I dropped my camera when photograhing this ostrich. He stepped on it, and it still works!


My Video

Two Little Owls

This is a video that I made with my Fujifilm camera.  It was a very windy day and I had a hard time standing still but I had to get these two little owls before they flew away.

Your photographs look very nice, I was give a fuji camera a couple years back and it was supposed to be like the High-end DSLR Nope it took hazy photographs and I never liked it. Now I am saving for a better quality camera...kills me to be without one.

candy47, Wildlife often seems to respond so appealingly to soothing voices. They seem to understand, if not the words, underlying sentiments and sincere camaraderie.

DerdriuMariner, that was the first time I saw those two but anytime I see an owl I talk and they don't fly away!

candy47, Those two owls seemed very comfortable with your presence. Your voice must have been soothing for them. Or familiar, if they've seen you on other occasions.
