Summary: Camera: the fujifilm HS20EXR is a great camera that takes wonderful images. I am a novice photographer and this camera looks and feels like a DSLR. I especially like the manual zoom for its feel.
Summary: love it ease of operation sleek design and has all the features i was looking for in a digital camera beats my cell phone pics for advertising Fujifilm FinePix HS20 16 MP Digital Camera with EXR BSI CMOS High Speed Sensor and Fujinon 30x Wide Angle Optical Zoom Lens
Excerpt: My background is I like easy to use cameras but need a decent zoom for wildlife photos etc on long haul holidays. My existing camera was a fuji S1000 which has done reasonably well, but I was interested in the HS20 for 3 main reasons: 1. The increase in zoom from 12x to 30x 2.
Summary: The HS20 came on Wednesday evening. I have been shooting twice a day since. My previous camera was also a FujiFilm S7000 which I purchase for $420 in 2005. I took 14000 photos with the S7000 and learned to use all of its features.
Summary: After reading the specs on this camera, I sold my Canon G11 and bought the HS20EXR. I was looking for a "manual" barrel zoom and this was about the only choice, the 30x was a bonus, and the rest of the specs were outstanding. Overall, I am very pleased.
Excerpt: First off I wanna say if your looking for the perfect camera.....GOOD LUCK! No Camera is perfect....all have their strong and weak points $200 to $2000+. Too many people expect the quality of a High End DSLR out of a $300 Prosumer Camera. It's probably never gonna happen so we hafta be realistic!
Excerpt: This camera had been rated from 3.5 to 5.0 stars in most reviews. It all comes to the way it was advertised and people's naive expectations. It looks, feels and weights like a DSLR but it's not, so if you expect the picture quality of a 12MP 23.4x15.6mm sensor from a 16MP 6.4x4.8mm EXR sensor look...
