We've given the S2500/S2550 a grade of B.

Editor's Review

The S2500/S2550 has been replaced by the S2950. Here's what we had to say about it last year:

The S2500/S2550 is one of Fuji's bridge models for 2010 -- a big 18x zoom that shoots HD video. Fuji does have a good reputation with this genre, though this is clearly intended as a model for budget conscious-shoppers. If you want a huge zoom for as little as $200, don't mind a chunky body made of cheap plastic, and accept that this isn't really in the same class as genre-leaders like the Canon SX20 or Panasonic FZ35, then go ahead and give the S2500/S2550 a look. The only difference we can discern (aside from price) between this model and the slightly cheaper S1800 is that this one has an HDMI output -- if displaying your HD videos on a TV matters to you, this is probably worth the extra money. Once again, keep in mind that this is a low-cost superzoom, so don't expect jaw-dropping performance; expect decent performance with some bumps along the way.

S2550 (Susan — 11/05/2010)
I paid $229 for this camera and it was the worst money I ever spent. Lens cap pops off, LCD screen is grainy, and pictures are horrible. It doesn't matter what setting I use the pictures always turn out poorly. Although, Dennis at FujiFilm things it takes "good pictures", but in his world greens are black and blues/reds are white. Personally, I think a picture should represent the image not what Dennis thinks the world should look like. This camera is so bad that I had to buy a different one to replace it. DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA!!!
