CNET
2 April 2013
  • Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR's features and performance are well beyond those of your average point-and-shoot megazoom, making it a fine choice for enthusiasts and as a family camera.
  • Pros: The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR has a nice 42x manual zoom lens; fast performance; very good picture quality for its class; a lot of shooting options, including manual and semimanual modes and raw capture; and excellent hardware features.
  • Cons: Its manual zoom isn't great for zooming while capturing movies; it's large and heavy; for those uninitiated with Fujifilm's EXR sensors, getting the best results can require a little extra effort.

TechRadar UK
6 August 2013
  • Summary: Huge zoom range and 'world's fastest autofocus'
  • Pros: Good OIS performance, Articulated screen, Shoots in raw format, There's plenty to like about the Fuji HS50 EXR, but our favourite thing has to be the incredibly versatile 42x optical zoom range and the fantastic Optical Image Stabilisation technology that means that images captured at the far rea...
  • Cons: Small sensor, Image smoothing, No touchscreen, Perhaps it's a little picky, but we'd like to see even more technology squeezed onto bridge cameras. A touchscreen and Wi-Fi, for instance, would have elevated this camera from very good to excellent.
