  • Summary: There's no GPS or Wi-Fi, but you do get advanced photographic features like full manual controls, RAW image capture and a hot shoe. The Fujifilm also has in-camera panorama -- which the Canon lacks -- plus plenty of shooting modes (like Low-light Mode and background-blurring Pro Focus mode) and fun filters (like Miniature and Soft Focus).
  • Pros: 42x zoom, Very good photos for its class, Full manual controls, RAW support and a hot shoe, Swiveling LCD screen
  • Cons: Grainy image noise at high ISOs, Manual zoom can look jerky in videos

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR is a big camera with an impressive 42x zoom lens and plenty of controls, but its images don't hold up in low light.
  • Pros: Manual 42x zoom lens. Sharp images. High-quality vari-angle LCD. Sharp EVF. Lots of physical controls. Raw shooting support.
  • Cons: As big as an SLR. Limited continuous shooting. Images suffer at higher ISO settings. Nonstandard mic input.

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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

Fujifilm extends focal range, scales back physical controls. Will the enthusiast base appreciate the changes?

  • Conclusion: Most of them are pushing the limits with preposterous zoom ranges, including the attention-grabbing Canon SX50 HS ; big numbers always look great on spec sheets. A select few, like the Panasonic FZ200 , are banking on more subtle enhancements like constant, bright apertures and intricate DSLR-level controls—features that appeal more to hands-on, enthusiast photographers. Both approaches have merit, as our ratings suggest.
