Years and a lot of photographs later...
27 May 2013
Summary: I ordered this camera in advance based on its specs when it was first released. I have taken well over 5000 photographs with it. About a year after I got it it died and Fuji was excellent at making it right. Since that time it has worked well. I take a lot of macro shots, which leads me to my main criticism of the camera... Taking macro shots it is often difficult to get the auto focus to focus on the item I'm trying to photograph.
Summary: We bought this camera several months ago so I have used it quite a bit in different situations. I have gotten a lot better at knowing what settings to use at what time. Still have some frustrations at times but that is probably due to the user and not the camera itself. For taking videos however, there are some issues.
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. One might want to check out the fujiguys channel on youtube to get a good understanding of the camera features.
Summary: The camera was honestly a great camera, but i have to return it because it is bad for indoor shooting in low light. I also cant use sports mode with out it being very very blurry. If your looking for a camera that is used for tripods and for outdoor shooting go for this one. Great camera but not for what i need.
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. The EXR dynamic range mode for high contrast shots eg taking a picture of a bird/monkey in a tree in a backlit situation. 3.
Summary: I love this camera. I am only using the auto settings on it at this time as I am a novice. I will be taking photography classes and I know this camera with all its features will fulfill all my needs. I love the way I get crisp clear pictures and am able to zoom in with such clarity. And so many features to choose from. Also bought the accessory kit with the filters screen scratch savers wide angle lenes. Very pleased.
