Other Features

Supports Video Capability

The FinePix AX550 supports video capability. Most of the other similar spec cameras that were launched around the same time as this camera also support video capability.

There are a number of alternative cameras which support video capability currently available that you might want to look at including the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the DSC-WX80 both from Sony which and both of have better reviews.

Has a Built-In Flash

has a built-in flash

The FinePix AX550 has a built-in flash, as do most of the other medium megapixel cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as this digital camera.

We compared all the other cameras with a built-in flash to this camera and we think because of their better review scores, the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, the SeaLife DC1400 Pro Duo, and the GE A1455 are also worth considering.

Display

Quite Small Display Diagonal

Comparable spec digital cameras that have been around for more than two years have display diagonals of between 2" and 4.8", and the average display diagonal is 2.9". When compared to other medium megapixel cameras that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the display diagonal of the Fujifilm FinePix AX550 of only 2.7 inches is one of the smallest.

Alternative 2.7" screen cameras currently available which you might want to look at include because of its better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix JX500.

If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the Pentax K-01 (3" and higher rated), the Sony NEX-5 (£489.99) (3" and higher rated), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ56 (3" and higher rated).

Lens System

Average Optical Zoom

The FinePix AX550 has a fairly standard optical zoom (5 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other cameras of this age and type.

Cameras with a bigger optical zoom that might be worth considering include the Nikon D5100 + AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (£239.99) (5.8x and higher rated).

Picture Quality

Has an Image Stabilizer

The Fujifilm FinePix AX550 has an image stabilizer. Most of the other medium megapixel cameras that have been around for around the same time as this camera also have an image stabilizer.

We compared all the other cameras with an image stabilizer to this digital camera and we think because of their better review scores, the Nikon L120, and the Panasonic DMC-TZ30EF-W are also worth considering.

16 Megapixels Megapixel

This is a 16 megapixels digital camera.

Other 16MP cameras currently available that you might want to consider include the Fujifilm F660EXR (£181) which has better reviews.

Cameras with a higher megapixel that might be worth looking at include the Lumix G5 (£788) (16.05MP and higher rated), the DMC-GH3EC-K (16.05MP and higher rated), or the Lumix DMC-G6 (16.05MP and higher rated) all from Panasonic.
