Alternative digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS40[plb_1786919_price], or the Nikon Coolpix S570[plb_2049075_price].

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most commonly supported memory card on digital cameras of this age and type. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory currently available including the Rollei PowerFlex 800[plb_1950271_price], the Olympus VG-180[plb_1873256_price], or the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a camera with a better memory card type then you might want to consider the Sony DSC-WX350[plb_2163795_price] (MicroSD (TransFlash)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2)|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

The smallest digital zoom of compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FinePix JX550 is 1x and the biggest is 810x.

We compared this camera to all the other 7.2x digital zoom digital cameras and we think the Fujifilm FinePix AX650[plb_1570707_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
