Best Super-Zoom out at this time.

Summary: This is not a DSLR camera. There are major differences. But it costs less than most good lenses for a DSLR. It does almost everything an amateur could ask for to take great photos while on, "Once in a lifetime" vacations.
Summary: I have had this camera for several weeks with all sorts of shooting involved. I have over 40 years experience as a photographer, both as an enthusiast and part-time professional. I don't know-it-all nor do I pertend too, I'll just give my impression as honestly as I can.
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.
Summary: This is one review I really did not want to have to write. I have spent over three years looking for a suitable upgrade for my 9 year old Sony V1. After years of waiting for another compact size prosumer camera to hit the market, I finally gave up and decided I would go with a megazoom.
Summary: Just tested this camera today, 15 April 2011. Color balance and resolution quality are fine. Here's my initial experiences: CONS first. Cons: Camera was packed in a plastic bag - lens cap was not installed. Lens was dusty - but no smears. LCD display did not have a protective film applied.

Summary: I'm sure many folks will roll their eyes at me, but I actually sold my Sony Alpha A300 SLR three months ago and pre-ordered this camera. I do a lot of photography, but it's mostly a serious hobby for me, and I was tired of lugging around multiple large lenses.
Summary: In addition to what has already been said, I must say that this is the best Super Zoom camera ever. I own a Lumix FZ-18 and have been waiting for a camera with the advertised qualities of the Finepix HS-20.
Great superzoom camera, what the HS10 should have been

Summary: The HS20 shares the same body and lens as the HS10, but has been beefed up with much faster and more capable electronics. It is what the brain-dead HS10 should have been. After all, it should be expected that one of the biggest uses for a superzoom camera would be shooting live action long distance...
Summary: I had spent my first day with the HS20EXR and was generally very pleased with the functionality and performance. Make no mistake, this is not a DSLR, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. This camera packs some capabilities and features that I would dream to have in one of my DSLRs.
Summary: it's; * a all-in-one..go-shoot cam, except for absence of GPS(to record locations). * a good buy for the price! * though AA sized batteries - useful for photographers exploring places where there is no power supply/charging facility..just pick few AA sized batteries to suffice..
