Excerpt: My primary interest is wildlife, and especially birds. So the long zoom is essential. Just remember this is a compact camera for a zoom this powerful, it uses a small sensor to accomplish this, so don't expect miracles. The high rating is for cameras in this class, not to compare it with $2,500 DSLRs with 18" long lenses. The EXR 1/2" sensor is what sets this camera apart from other mega zoom cameras in this price range.
Excerpt: This is my first Review ever of any Camera on this site or on any site. I read a lot all the Comments and discussion in this site and in others as well about the EXR Fuji Family, before I jumped in and bought this HS30-EXR Camera 04 months ago. I come from the CANON world since 10 years ago and I have no doubt whatsoever this is the best Camera I have had of all the ones (Canon - SX1-IS, SX20-IS and SD980-IS) I had before.
Summary: I picked the HS30EXR because of it's manual zoom and ability to accept filters. It is a small and light camera. People with big hands may have some difficulty with the controls. The shot-to-shot lag is wanting, but can be overcome using burst/continuous mode. The macro mode is excellent. Can't say the same for maximum zoom. Even with vibration control set on, a tripod is recommended. The lens is not as sharp as that of the Panasonic Z150.
