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.

  • Summary: Bigger is awesome these days, so Fujifilm slapped its latest Advance Point and Shoot Camera, FinePix HS50EXR in the market. A whopping 42x zoom lens (24-1000mm) based snapper, HS50EXR comes as an expensive shocker from the brand but manages to get some applauds for delivering decent pictures.
  • Pros: Whopping long zoom lens , Advanced processing system (EXR) , Sharp images , Decent EVF
  • Cons: Pictures distorts at high ISO , Useless photo editing tool included , Zoom defocuses while making video , Feels heavy , Bit expensive

  • Excerpt: In terms of its external design the new Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR looks almost identical to the HS30EXR model that it replaces. Therefore a lot of the comments that we made about that model apply equally to the HS50, which looks, feels and handles very much like a mid-range DSLR.
