Third one's been excellent.

Summary: I unpacked the first camera I received, put in the batteries, turned it on - so far so good. Took a couple test shots. So far, so good. Then I tried to turn it OFF. It would not turn off. Had to remove the batteries to shut it down. It went back immediately. Amazon's return policy is amazing - turnaround time was incredibly fast. The second one came and it worked great for one week - then "lens control error" and the zoom quit working.
Disappointed.. too much hype surrounding this camera

Summary: It's capable of taking good photos however the ISO settings and shutter speed is confusing to say the least. Besides, the EVF is painful to use. It so PIXELIZED that I can't see the details of what I am going to take. It's just plain terrible. Unless you are not planning to use the EVF at all, or else you should really start looking elsewhere for other alternative. The manual focus is painful to use as well.
Summary: Excellent camera. Highly recommend. Enormous zoom and very good stabilization. EXR-auto works very good. No problems with overheating. It is a 5+ star camera if not for the batteries. Amazingly for such a good camera, the NiMH batteries are not performing! Camera with fresh eneloops and NiMH settings works very slow, showed "low battery" and shut off just after about 30 shots with flash and screen at 75%!
Summary: I have a Sony H5 7 MP for a long time, but recently died. I bought this camera for the comments and it says it is the best bridge this year. I am very disappointed, the image can not bear the slightest increase is not defined, it is terrible. I thought a more modern camera would be better, but I was wrong. Do not buy this camera! I had to return.
Summary: At first I was very pleased with this camera. I take thousands of family photos every year and this camera was quite an upgrade. The 30x zoom is awesome and the image stabilization, even at full zoom, works quite well. The panorama function is super easy to use, no tedious stitching or matching at all. You just pan the camera around and it does the rest. I love the smart flash, no more overexposed pics or dark backgrounds, and it's great in low light.
Summary: Hs20 is a good camera in the day time! It has a hard time a night, with the auto focus. Mine came with dust in side of the lens. So I have to send it to be cleaned or for another one. For the price and it having the hot shoe, it's a good camera.
Summary: The camera worked great for six months. Then it would not tun on. I returned it to Fujifilm USA at Edison, NY. After about a week I phoned (9/2/2011) and was told that the camera had been received and that in a week I would recieve a status report. I recieved an e-mail on 9/16/2011 stating that they had just received my camera on 9/16/2011. The US Post Office reported that they recieved the camera on 9/1/2011. How impressed do you think I am.
Summary: I have purchased and returned my fair share of cameras over the last year in the hunt for one that will replace my Olympus. So, to say I was skeptical is an understatement! However, right out of the box, I love this camera! The first thing that I did was update the firmware, and have not had any problems with overheating, and my camera is on for a full football game at at time! Second, the battery life is great!
Summary: We purchased this camera for our trip to New York and we loved it. Although it does NOT come with a sd card it is inexpensive to get one. It was easy to use once you get the hang of it and with the right settings the pictures look AWESOME. If you have the money to spend for a nice camera and are a novice user, this is the way to go. I give this camera an easy 4 out of 5. This is because more advance features could be added.
