Summary: I've tried all the popular "mega-zooms" on the market and sent them all back, except one : the Fuji HS50-EXR. This Fuji performs much better than any other point n' shoot camera I have tried and would be my recommendation to anyone looking for a long zoom / point and shoot. Lots of practical useful features, and the manual zoom is much quicker than a clunky motorized zoom. Color reproduction is excellent especially in EXR modes. Lightning fast start up and focus.
Summary: Haven't had the camera long enough to write a meaningful review, but so far so good. I did want to post a comment for the case offered along with the camera. I bought this case (Case Logic DCB-304)along with the Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR, because of the camera page notation saying "Frequently bought together", featuring this case.. The case is not large enough to fit the HS50EXR without a struggle to get the camera in and out of it.
Summary: I really don't have anything bad to say about this camera. I mean, the amount of pictures I have to go through after a day at a football game can be a bit much, but that's more my fault than the camera. The mega zoom makes me look like stalker, but again, that's more my fault than the camera. I'm not a selfie kinda of person, but the camera has turn and flip screen. More my fault than the camera. Continuous shooting is great.
Fabulous Camera for an Amazing Price -- 6 frames per sec and just about sees in the dark

Summary: I did a lot of research before I bought this camera, I compared features to lots of different cameras and this was a real winner. This turned out to be a major upgrade from my previous Canon camera which I also liked a lot. I've owned quite a few different Canon cameras, and it is my subjective experience that the Auto-focus of this camera is superior to anything else that I have used. Tracking focus on a moving subject is also very good.
Summary: I decided to purchase this camera due to its 1000mm manual zoom and the macro capability. Both of which I don’t have with the 18-200mm lens that I use on my Nikon D90 or D7000. I do mostly portrait photography with the DSLRs, and I do have macro filters for a 50mm prime lens that I own, but I’m tired of messing with all the parts and pieces.
Summary: I purchased through Amazon as "used good" and received the camera a few days ago. I was pleased when I received the camera, having saved $75 over a new version I found it was missing the lens cap strap and the scratches listed as 1/4" x 1/4" were not noticeable unless under bright light and you are specifically looking for them. Initially I did some tests around the house. I was encouraged and today I took it to the botanical gardens to do some additional tests.

Summary: Where do I begin... So we have a couple of point and shoot cameras: Samsung and Panasonic. They work well but forget about "superb PQ for fast moving photos". I researched TONS of cameras including DSLR's and from all of the reviews I have read, this "bridge camera" was right there at the very top! It feels "quality" in your hands. It is effortless to take pics with and easy to learn and navigate through. What abut that Picture Quality you ask...?
Summary: My wife and I prefer to just frame the shot as we want it instead of cropping later. Well with a 24-1000mm zoom range we can pretty much do that. People always want to compare these to DSLR's.....why? It's not a DSLR and it can't do a lot of thing that a DSLR (with a whole bag of lens's) can do. But that's not its purpose.
