Through a points program at work I have earnedaccess to either a fuji finepix e550, orthe nikon coolpix 5200. I would really appreciate any feedback as soon as possible, I have to pick by midnight. Thank you

A larger lcd, manual exposure modes, a bit more telephoto, and AA's would swing my vote in the direction of the Fuji.

Thank you for your input PhilR

Anyone else have an opinion?

I'm sure they both take very good quality pictures, but I have to agree with Phil on the Fuji. Besides the features Phil mentioned...The E550 has 6 MP resolution vs. 5 MP for the 5200, and can achieve a 12 MP interpolated resolution. The E550 is ISO 800 capable (vs. ISO 400) for better low light pics, and uses AA batteries as opposed to the Nikon's propriatary Lithium-Ion battery.

Thank you 'the Hun' for your detailed opinion. I appreciate the informative feedback. I will probably go with the Fuji.

Would anybody else like to weigh in?
