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
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.
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.

Summary: I received the HS20 o/a April 7, 2011 and I began using it right out of the box (I also have the Canon SX10IS and Minolta SLR's). I have not yet used it to its fullest potential, but so far, here is my initial reaction to the HS20: 1) pictures are vivid and sharp; 2) The manual zoom is a great...
