FIRST IMPRESSION--DECENT SUBSTITUTE FOR A DSLR IF YOU'RE A "SERIOUS" AMATEUR
6 May 2015
Summary: So far, so good. I bought the camera without being able to hold it in my hands (brick and mortar photo shops don't seem to carry it any longer), but I knew from the reviews that it was heavy. It is. I've spent 5 days playing with the features and getting used to what it can do, which is a lot.
Very good but...jury is still out on this camera...

Summary: Jury is still out for me with this camera. Will use it a bit longer before I present a final conclusion. For now, the colors aren't quite as good as my old Panasonic Lumix FZ7 (an especially outstanding old camera, for sure) and the image quality appears to be "iffy", depending on available lighting...
I will say this that is not a easy camera to get used to

Summary: I purchased this camera a little over three months ago. So far it has preformed as advertised. I will say this that is not a easy camera to get used to. It does have a big leaving curve that comes with it. Also it's low-light ability, s are somewhat lacking.
Summary: I just received the Fuji HS50EXR and did some test shots and compared these and other features to my current camera the Panasonic FZ150 The camera was shipped quickly and came in a box that was well packaged in a larger box.
Summary: Wanted good quality pictures of my kids without the dslr price. I am not a professional photographer by any means, but this camera takes some awesome pictures! Lots of settings help you take all sorts of fun pictures, just point and shoot. Much better than my traditional digital camera.
Excerpt: Overall I love this camera as a backup. I would definitely take on vacation with me. I may be a bit old fashion, but I'm not a fan of Electronic Viewfinders (EVF). They're slow and require the power be "on" in order to just view the surroundings. I still prefer optical finders.
Pros: Unbelievable features. Loaded to the max. Creative filters a plus. Considering everything this camera can do with a 1000mm lens attached, this camera is very light and compact. Photos, while not super pro sharp, are sufficiently sharp enough to produce wonderful 11x14. Video at 60fps is better th...
Cons: Electronic Viewfinder - while ok for amateurs, still does not compare to a genuine optical finder, favored by the pros, but at least it has a viewfinder. Many other hybrid type cameras don't even have a viewfinder requiring you to view through the LCD screen only. More important, most others DON'...
Current 1 month review of camera so far...started rocky, but much happier now thanks to Fuji Guys on YT

Summary: To be completely honest, I have NOT put this bridge camera through all it's paces yet. I bought this camera primarily to have a good snap-shot camera AND an even better digital video camera, for music concerts indoors and in low light settings.
