Fujifilm Finepix HS20EXR: A quality all-rounder
24 January 2012
Summary: I've previously owned SLR cameras, but over recent years we've had compacts. Something simple enough for all the family to use. I was getting frustrated by the lack of control offered by the compact and the birth of our first grandchild offered the perfect excuse to upgrade. A full DSLR was out of the picture on both cost and complexity grounds.
Pros: Massive zoom, great in low light, DSLR styling
Cons: Poor video recording, bit bulky for carrying about
Summary: This is the third Fuji camera i have purchased,the last main camera for the last 5 years is the S9000 i cannot part with that camera.I class the HS20EXR in the same league as the S9000,the HS20 is easy to use has great features and style. the only problem i have had is with the use of the Panorana, The Rest of the setting are great,i have tried every one.in manaul setting the camera is like using my film SLR cameras.
Summary: I have now owned this camera for some months, enough to share my opinions and thoughts about it! This camera is for sure perfect for those wanting to take extraordinary pictures and video clips, this is a camera for those of you wanting superb qulity and opportunities to take amazing and crystal clear pictures of your friends, your family and stunning nature!
Fujifilm Finepix HS20EXR: Great starting point, but bulky
5 January 2012
Summary: This device is something of an enigma, a lot of features, a lot of techincal capabilities and for those high quality shots in all conditions, it needs a capable user. Trying non-defaults can easily land a novice in a situation where the pictures are not coming out correctly, so end up doing a reset to factory defaults and everything was back to normal. The picture quality is exquisite, well for a bridge camera it is pretty good.
Pros: Great entry level device, AA batteries
Cons: Bulky (but then which one isn't), badly chosen AA batteries will make you run out of juice
Summary: we bought this camera especially to take pictures while on safari. Always just had one of them pocket cameras. But this HS20 is great, even for beginners. The little handbook is easy to understand & small enough to take along & learn as you go along. Well pleased with this camera.
Summary: Now this is a difficult one... been contemplating chaniging my camera for a while, nikon d70. Now that was a fantastic camera of its time, 6mp and raw files.. however things move on and so do we, and finances. What i wanted was almost a compromise of the pretention of a "pro" unit and the flexibility of a compact. Hey presto a bridge camera, which is what this camera is.
Summary: This is my third Finepix. I am still learning all the features. As a wedding photographer it has several features that I prefer over an SLR. The ability to see the image in the viewfinder immediately after capture is a great asset. I know if you blinked without removing the camera from my eye. The flash sync at any shutter speed is another feature I like. I have more control over backgrounds. I can balance an indoor flash photo to a sunny outdoors.
Summary: I bought this after returning a Nikon Finepix P500 to Argos. The Nikon was the worst camera I have ever bought. It could not handle low light very well and focusing outside was a big problem. HD video was quite poor with intermittant brightness and it could not focus on anything further than 12 feet. All in all it had a very poor quality feel about it.
The Fujifilm HS20 - what a pinnacle of design success!

Summary: I've had my Fujifilm HS20 for about 6 months now - figured it's time to share my experiences with this hi-tech piece of gear. I love it! I haven't used all of the features as of yet but I have taken lots of shots indoors and outdoors in varying light conditions - excellent handling of different conditions (I mainly use the EXR setting).
