Summary: My first large camera I found it easy to use striaght out of the box, as I found my way round the camera settings it was even better . This is a good digital camera that gives you the confidence to go up to use a DSLR . Also this is excellent value for money . There was only one downfall, that was the first camera kept freezing and had to go back.
Excerpt: Going into University for graphic design, I knew that I would need a decent digital camera. I checked out a few deals and this one seemed promising to me. The size was good - the camera is not too bulky and difficult to carry on my commute to school. The only thing that made me uneasy about it was that I had only ever used a canon camera.
Pros: Good size, great zoom and macro feature, 360 degree panorama, 16 megapixels
Cons: Slow process time while shooting raw + jpeg, takes a long time to master all the settings/features
Summary: A great bridge camera if you don't want to spend out on a dslr. Packed with features including a digital spirit level. There is just two things to bear in mind, 1. it uses AA batteries and not a rechargeable pack 2. the video recordings often pulse (bad focus).
Summary: The modern camera is packed with features and this Fujifilm is no exception. The problem I think with many reviewers is that they have not learned about photography in the old film days and expect to pick up a camera and get pro results. Read an old photographic book and learn about ISO, aperture and shutter speed, exposure adjustment and then apply them to creating your photographs and you will get better results with ANY camera.
This awesome product replaced a full set of Canon DSLRs and five lenses

Summary: I was tired of carrying my heavy DSLR cameras and several lenses over many years and went looking for a more lite weight "all in one" camera that would do most of what I wanted. The Fujifilm Finepix HS20 EXR was the closest I could find as far as weight, functions, and long zoom lens available on the market.
Great value for a highly sreced camera that does it all.

Summary: I have been using the HS20 as my main camera for now over 6 months. It is great alternative if you do not want to lug around a full-on DSLR with all its related (required) equipment. The HS20 is not really for a "point and shoot" type of photographer, although it does that well. The camera is more for the photographer who wants/needs more control over what his camera does.
Summary: I have had the HS20EXR for a couple of months now, an upgrade from the Fuji S9600, a camera I loved but as it did not have image stabilisation, I went for this one. At first, I thought I had made a big mistake, but after an afternoon pressing every button (and there are a few) taking pictures in every mode, hand held and tripod, wide angle and zoom, noting all the options, the results were downloaded, and the HS20EXR began to show it's true colours.
Summary: I wrote a long spiel - it never got published, so I'm not going to reapeat it. I've had three Fuji cameras - all top of range and all reliable. If you want to lug a bag full of heavy bodies and lenses around - go ahead. I've done it professionally and now retired my aching back loves the one camera does it all function of the Fuji bridge camera.
Summary: I read loads of the professional reviews. I read all reviews by previous buyers. I then took the plunge. And guess what? This is a cracking camera that does more than your average photographer will ever need. I'm sure the professional photographers will need more, but for mere mortals it does the lot. The professional reviews are to picky and the negative reviews by previous buyers are clearly not using the same camera. Get out there and buy one.
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.
