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.

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 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.

  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ис...
