Photos not as good as Canon
11 February 2013
Summary: I compared with SX40HS and sent it back. I was hoping the higher magnification and resolution viewfinder and manual zoom would be plusses, (which they were) but in practice it was very slow to start up (the fast start up function doesn't actually let you take pictures!), focus was unreliable at tele end, and the combination of image stabilization, focussing and processing just produced inferior picture quality in most cases and a lot more unusable images or missed shots.
Summary: I purchased this camera because as an older person with multifocals I find using a screen-only camera difficult in most conditions. This FinePix camera has a mini-screen in a viewfinder not an optical viewfinder. It is impossible to view it with or without my glasses. I'm having to shoot and hope for the best. The lag between photos is too long. I bought this camera because of the 720mm equivalent lens.
Summary: I had this camera for 2.5 months when suddenly I saw black horizontal lines on the screen. I sent it back to Fuji who told me it is most likely an electrical problem, then several weeks later told me the parts needed would take too long to receive and that they would send me a new camera. That was the beginning of November. The holidays have passed and I'm still without my camera.Now to make matters worse, it has gone done in price by $50.00!
Summary: Before purchasing, I saw the overwhelmingly positive reviews of this camera, and one complaining that the pictures weren't as good as an iPhone 4S. I dismissed the latter as the typical Apple fan-boy noise. But, he was right [sort of]. This camera is the equivalent of a poor-quality point-and-shoot, with a large zoom lens and a lot of manual controls.
Summary: I tried every mode on this camera and took over 300 pictures with only 3 or 4 being relatively decent after processing out the noise and fixing the exposure in Light Room. I couldn't believe how grainy and noisy the photos were from this camera. I was sorting through some old pictures from an old 5 MP HP I had over five years ago and these pictures were much better than the ones with the brand new, expensive camera that is supposed to be excellent. Nope. Not at all.
Summary: I purchased this camera today because it seemed like a fantastic deal, and I was hoping to move beyond using my iPhone 4S to take pictures of everything. I tinkered with the camera a little on the drive home (because I wasn't driving) and I had some reservations--the image quality was somewhat sharp, but any time you zoomed at all it looked very grainy. I spent the past half-hour with this camera, and I cannot wait to return it.
Conclusion: I am reviewing the HS25EXR which I bought on Amazon yesterday and after two days of shooting I mailed it back. This camera is pretty much same as the HS30EXR with the difference of the 25 taking AAs. That was my main deciding factor and the 24mm wide angle and the fact, that I had a Fuji camera before that produced outstanding outdoor photos. This camera on EXR setting had worst image quality then my first digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix 3100.

Fuji Finepix HS30EXR,da evitare se cercate qualità di una reflex
19 December 2012
Excerpt: ...ore. -Modalità di scatto: il software Fujifilm offre tantissime soluzioni di scatto, dalla modalità automatica EXR, al riconoscimento dei volti, alla modalità PRO-LIGHT che permette di fare 4 scatti di fila alla macchina ed essa li fonde per ridurre al minimo il rumore. C'è perfino una modalità che scatta in automatico quando riconosce il muso di un gatto. Peccato che comunque, come vedremo più avanti, tutte queste modalità non compensano la mancanza ...
Pros: Design, obiettivo, ergonomia, autonomia, funzioni extra, registrazione video
Cons: Sensore da compatta, 16 MPX poco sfruttabili, dettaglio immagini troppo basso
Summary: Weil ich in meiner Freizeit (ganz ohne Fachwissen) gern fotografiere und den Wunsch hatte, bessere Fotos als mit meiner alten Digicam zu machen, habe ich mir nach einigem Abwägen diese Kamera gekauft. Die unterschiedlichen Kritiken habe ich vorher registriert, wollte mir aber selber ein Bild machen. Zunächst war ich von der Optik und äußeren Verarbeitung positiv überrascht.
