Summary: After a couple weeks of use, I have "reluctantly" returned this camera. I actually loved this camera and it was very painful returning it. The photos were sharp, colors vibrant, and the camera was extremely easy to learn and operate. Also, the camera has a robust set of features. Prior to this camera, I owned a Panasonic FZ30K which has a manual zoom with 8MP. The low light photos taken on the HS20 were far far superior to ones taken on the FZ30K.
Summary: I updated this slightly after having used the camera on a week long vacation. I am an amateur photographer and I mostly shoot vacations, hiking trips, and the like. Mostly stills, but sometimes a little video now and then. I am not married to the idea of FinePix Cameras, yet this is my third. I have repeatedly chose Fuji FinePix because: Up-Sides: 1. Great pictures for the price (great lens and apparently pretty good internal components). 2.
Summary: This is an Amazing camera. With all functions that can be set up since fully automatic to fully manual. 30x Zoom , manual focus , external flash, full HD movies and lots of other functions. The best way is to read the manual and start using the camera. Pros: 30x Zoom, take pictures while recording movies, 3" LCD, full HD movies, slow down scenes @ 320fps, automatic red eye removall, lots of languages, adaptatives lens for filters (58mm), 3600 Panorama, best shot, face...
Summary: I got my HS20 yesterday and so far it is taking great photos and it is working great on the Sanyo Eneloop batteries. I was worried about the heat message that people have been getting. I used it all day and did not get a heat issue until I put it into full HD video and recorded for about 3 or 4 minutes. I then went to the Fuji website they had firmware version 1.02 now for the HS20 and it fixes the heat warning message.
Summary: So far I have shot 1200 frames in a major photo shoot last weekend. The box arrived from Amazon the day before and I decided to take a chance and use it. The camera performed admirably. As to the temperature sensor issue, it is an erroneous reading and Fuji has made a firmware update available to correct the setting. Go to [...] As I use the camera for still photos only, I have no comments about the video capabilities of the unit.
Summary: I got interested in the HS20 after looking at the HS10 and the S200EXR. The one consistent thread through the reviews was that those two cameras have excellent picture quality. later, I went to the Fujifilm website and there I found their blurb (about 8 pages) listing the incredibly extensive feature set that was built into the HS20EXR.
Summary: I was really looking forward to getting this camera, but it's going back to Amazon. I first went out on a cloudless day to take shots of Bluebonnet fields along with red Indian Paintbrush. The results were terrible with the blues especially being not only muddy and not blue, but in many shots not even recognizable as flowers. Just a field of gray with no detail. Strangely, trees in the background were sharp, but flowers right in front of them were unrecognizable.
Before Fuji company fix the heating warming, don`t buy this item.

Summary: I had fujifilm F10 & S6000fd camera, but when I know they will come out new product-HS20EXR, I just Sincerely hope this new camera. I order last week & received yesterday. When I open the box & take HS20EXR on hand, start some test, like Wireless Remote Shutter Control - its working fine on HS20. But after 25 minutes past, I find the heating warming sign show on lcd screen, even I turn off HS20 by 1min 2min 5min 10min....

Summary: edited: upgraded from 1 to 5 stars the firmware update is easy and fixes heat problem. at all times seller offered to change or help. before firmware update: 1 star sold my hs10 because it was slow, grate pictures but dead slow lost too many pictures. so I got this hs20. Apparently this camera "production batch" has a temperature issue and using it while the equipment is showing a temperature warning is just an invitation to burn or damage the camera internal board or...
