    I am interested in purchasing a Fujifilm Finepix E550
    Point and shoot camera. it seems to have a lot of
    good points eg:

    See camera

    shutter lag .05
    Optical zoom
    AA batteries
    4x optical zoom
    fast start-up and operation
    ISO 80 to 800

    Can somebody tell me if the following negatives
    xD Picture Card
    and the USB out note it is not a USB 2.
    Is USB a big disadvantage compared to a USB 2
    in regards how long it takes to transfer from camera
    to computer.
    Can you solve this if it is a problem by removing
    the card from the camera's and using a card reader
    to transfer the pictures to the computer

    Thanks in advance.

    There is a bit of difference between USB 1 and 2 but it wont affect your
    ability to transfer pictures. If your PC USB is 1 then the US transfer will
    shift down to 1.
    You could of course get a USB 2 PCI card added to your computer if you wish
    to use usb2.
    You can also remove the card from the camera and use a card reader that
    supports XD picture cards.

    None of these things are a disadvantage. I find even with usb1.1 it is
    faster to use that than a card reader and xd cards are not expensive
    anymore. I download 50 odd photos quite often on mine and don't find it
    Have you looked at the E900. The new model. It has the same body and
    lens, but has the s9x00 sensor and usb20 plus usable higher iso.

    Have a look at my photos. three there are taken with the E550.
