  • Conclusion: For anybody looking for a high-zoom bridge camera with plenty of bang for your back, the Fuji HS50 EXR is an excellent option. Although it has a shorter zoom range than the Canon SX50 (which boasts a 50x optical zoom lens), the 24-1,000mm range should be more than enough for most users. It bests the Canon SX50 though in terms of the electronic viewfinder, so we'd be inclined to recommend this over it.

Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR Review

Tech2
7 April 2013
  • Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR is priced at an MRP of Rs 32,999, but you can buy it online for around Rs 1,000 less. Considering what you get and the kind of performance this camera offers, we feel it’s a bit overpriced. It would have been an attractive deal for Rs 28,000—the price at which many flagship super zoom cameras retail. Our recommendation is still the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS, which features 50x optical zoom and performs significantly better.

Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR review

16 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The HS50EXR is a tempting proposition for anyone who's used to shooting with an SLR. It looks and feels strikingly similar, with a large handgrip and lens rings for zoom and focus. The 920,000-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF) is much bigger and sharper than the ones on most ultra-zoom cameras, and compares well with an SLR's optical viewfinder.

Fuji FinePix HS50 EXR review

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 reach remain blur-free.
  • 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.
