Summary: I ordered this camera after debating for several months over different choices. It takes stunning shots with negligible drawbacks. So, first off, the zoom. The 30x zoom is more than enough to do just about anything from taking detailed pictures of ivy from 50 feet off to getting that perfect candid...
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.
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.
Summary: I am an EE working in Fishery and Ocean Science, I have a very good Canon DSLR w/many lens's, etc., very pleased with the overall operation and pic quality but lots of heavy stuff to drag along all the time.
HS20 is good for travel or walk around, but not for serious jobs...

Summary: Knowing the limitation, you will be happy with HS20! First off, I'm not trying to compare apple and orange here. I hope this review will help someone, especially for those who have a DSLR, looking for something light for travel, walk-around, etc.
Summary: Hey camera lovers, I just purchased this camera and I will leave a review shortly (after I get a chance to use all features and test it a few times) First of all, I compared this camera to the Sony HX100 and the Panasonic FZ100.
This is as close you can get to a DSLR but my unit fails..

Summary: This was the perfect camera... until I recorded video in HD mode and it all fell apart. Battery overheat problems just crippled this camera. Yes I did specify the right battery type as I tried both regular alkaline and nimh rechargeables. I did not use lithium AA's so I can't comment about those.
Summary: The HS20EXR camera was tested side by side with Canon sx30 IS, Panasonic FZ40, Nikon P500, Fujifilm S2900-4000 series cameras, Kodak Z990, and Kodak c613 point and shoot. A Nikon D90 and D3100 is mentioned as a result of casual use, but images were not tested.
Summary: Received my new FujiFilm FinePix HS20EXR on July 21, 2011. Tried to use it on July 22, 2011 and between 2-10 photos it locks up. FujiFilm says I need a faster ScanDisk card, I had a class 4 in it and it needs a class 6 to 10 in it.
Summary: Just had a vacation in Scotland and camera did excellent job inside and out. Good low light shooting. I also recorded video and the sound was fantastic, only problem in low light camera kept refocousing. For the price, size, weight camera was an excellent choice for me.
Pros: Lighter weight than SLR and lens is fantastic no need to carry multiple lens.
Cons: video keeps refocusing in low light conditions.
