    I am enjoying the use of this camera. To appreciate the value of this item, you have to acknowledge its limitations which are the same as any budget friendly camera. It will not produce SLR photos; however, it does produce pictures that are as good as any point and shoot compact camera. It rendered excellent outdoor photos, still and sport. The indoor photos were good. I did adjust some settings to get the results that I desired, but it was super easy. The camera is very user friendly. If you approach your purchase of this camera with a realistic expectation of its capabilities, you will enjoy it.

    I was looking for a small, easy to use camera that would easily fit in a pocket or small purse to take on our trip to Disney. I found both in this camera. The pictures came out very clear and the colors were true to life.

    I bought the AX550 for about $80 and added a $7 memory card. My previous cameras were a couple of $130 Kodak M1033’s (I now know why they went out of business) and a great $280 Panasonic Lumix that I dropped in a lake. With the simple shots I take, I didn’t need anything more expensive than this Fujifilm. Out of the box, it’s simple, intuitive and easy to set up and use. I did read the paper manual for a few tips, but probably didn’t need to if I’d taken more time to play with the camera. I’m no engineer like a previous reviewer, so I don’t have a particular mind set about how something should operate. I just like simple, and this camera is just that. I get good photo’s that are worthy of framing, depending on the photo paper I use, up to 5X7. Anything beyond that is grainy but that’s what you get from an $80 camera. The movie mode works well and is easy to figure out. Given the cost, it’s hard for me to criticize the camera, except to say it’s a bit thicker than some and it’s slick….hard to hold onto sometimes, but that’s a problem I see with most small cameras. Someday there will be a rugged outdoor version that has a rubber-like coating and then I’ll be happy. A positive about this model is that it takes AA batteries, inexpensive to replace and available at grocery stores and gas stations everywhere. So, for a simple, decent camera that does not cost much, it’s been a good choice for me. I read that some reviewers got a bad AX550, units that had out-of-the-box problems. All I can say is it happens from time to time, but if the manufacturer or the seller warranties it, then it’ll all work out. I tried it with Kodak and they still sent bad stuff, so I know it does not always work for the consumer. All in all, I believe this camera is a good one, considering the cost. Namaste….now go take some pictures.
