Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR ready to take on the competition

CNET
8 July 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.

Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR Review

  • 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.

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR represents a definite step forward for the series, at times pushing towards a giant leap. The positives are clear: there's a more responsive autofocus system than before that's now always engaged even at the longest of focal lengths, alongside improved image quality and the eminently usable design.
  • Pros: Performance improvements compared to predecessor, no longer "freezes" when acquiring longer focal lengths, manual zoom/focus rings, decent image quality, raw capture option, optical image stabilisation, close-up macro mode, focus-type switch on body, vari-angle screen, EXR mode can be useful
  • Cons: Not best image quality in class, overexposure can still be an issue, feels a little plasticky compared to some other competitors, price rise makes it among the priciest superzooms

  • Summary: Суперзум-камера высокого уровня. Фирменная матрица EXR-CMOS разрешения 16 Мп формата 1/2", процессор EXR Processor II, диапазон зума 42х (24-1000 экв.мм), оптический стабилизатор изображения, поворотный монитор с диагональю 3" и разрешением 920000 точек, диапазон ISO 100–3200 (с расширением до ISO 12800 в пониженном разрешении), формат RAW, серийная съемка до 11 и 16 кадр/сек, видеосъемка Full HD 1080@60p со стереозвуком.
  • Pros: Высочайшая кратность зума 42х., Наличие в диапазоне зума широкого угла от 24 экв.мм., Оптический стабилизатор изображения в объективе., Механическое зуммирование объектива (хотя немного тугое)., Оптический видоискатель, особенно полезный при ярком освещении, когда читаемость монитора ухудшается, а также помогающий экономить энергию аккумулятора., Наличие разъема «горячий башмак» для подключения внешней вспышки и других аксессуаров., Поворотный в двух плоскостях монито...
  • Cons: В ручном режиме М яркость экрана не симулирует будущий результат и, что еще хуже, гистограмма также не отслеживает вносимые изменения. Об экспозиции можно судить только по шкале экспонометра (хотя этого по сути достаточно)., При использовании Авто-ISO камера неохотно поднимает ISO и тяготеет к использованию слишком длинных (для текущего фокусного расстояния) выдержек, что может приводить к смазанным снимкам. Если вы чувствуете, что требуется высокое ISO, лучше ставить...
