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 and any number of other factors. It has provided some pretty nice photos but I'm still not "blown away" by anything I've seen other than some hand-held moon shots.
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. Other then that it is a good value for the money.
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. I had no trouble charging the battery (took about two hours), inserting and powering the camera. I had looked at the manual for the HS50EXR online and had gained some familiarity with its buttons/controls and features.
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. Manual zoom takes a little getting used to, but does have an auto face zoom feature. Bought the kit with extra filters, case, battery, memory card etc.
Summary: I really like this camera. I know "serious" photographers criticize the quality of the optics, but for my needs, it's a terrific, all-in-one camera. I love having the wide angle and the very long zoom and this camera has a very nice feel in your hands. Several people have commented on my "fancy" or "expensive" camera, which is rather funny, considering I paid <$400 for it. Prior to this, I used a Canon SX40is and prior to that a Canon SX20is (I love super zooms).
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. So in that regard, it has not been completely put through the testing phase yet. Also, I had a steep learning curve on this camera, but everyone NEEDS to bookmark the Fuji Guys on Youtube!!
Summary: Really, it's about my 5th, but I've only retained a Sony HX300, (my baby) and now, this HS50. The seller packaged this one adequately and the cam arrived before the scheduled date. So far, the many fine features of this camera have made me want to evaluate it with 5 stars, but I've one serious issue with the lens. The only way to zoom this cam is manually, by a ring on the lens itself.
Lots of pluses. Size and weight may be a negative for some.

Summary: The Fujifilm Finepix HS50 EXR feels like a DSLR. It is much larger and heavier than other superzooms, though that may not matter to some users. This camera has the fastest shutter of any camera I've used (I don't use any DSLR). You point, you press the shutter, and the image is almost instantly captured. I think this feature sets the Fujifilm apart from all other superzooms and is its major strength. One unusual feature is that the zoom is entirely manual.
