the product is excellent,

I think it should come with a memory card, even be it a small one just to get you going, like a demonstrator battery.

Shocking picture quality- doesn't always focus even though it is saying that it has. No focus point in many of the photos, especially the wide angle shots....

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The EX-Z550 features a wide-angle 26mm 4X optical zoom lens and a clear 2.7-inch LCD screen. The 14.1 effective megapixel camera also comes with CCD-shift image stabilisation and HD Movie functions.

EXILIM Engine 5.0
The new Engine 5.0 increases image processing speed by 30%, and produces beautiful images through advanced colour reproduction and rich tonal gradation by removing noise from photos in the high sensitivity mode.

Dynamic Photo
Casios Advanced Dynamic Photo function creates moving photos by allowing the user to cut moving subjects from the background of images taken with the continuous shooting function, and combine them with a different still image. The user can also cut-out moving images and paste them onto other moving images. This function not only increases the fun of creating images, but also increases the fun of sharing images by making it easy to upload images to YouTube using the pre-loaded software or post them to a blog.

Premium Auto
Premium Auto is a state-of-the-art fully-automatic function that analyses the scene being photographed – including distinguishing night scenes, back lighting, a blue sky, green trees, or a sunset. It can also sense whether there is a face in the frame, the movement and position of the subject, and whether a tripod is being used. It simultaneously optimises settings for exposure, ISO sensitivity, point of focus, photo blur correction, tonal range and color balance, and level of noise reduction.

Art Shot function
The Art Shot function makes use of the image processing technology in the EXILIM Engine 5.0 to create photos of scenery or human subjects that have the feel of a painting. The view in the LCD screen of the subject in front of the user can be switched between an oil painting, a crayon drawing, or a watercolour painting, allowing the user to select the preferred art style in which to photograph the scene.
