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: I am an amateur photographer who was sick to death of the limitations of my point-and-shoots, but was not interested in carrying a cumbersome camera bag with a DSLR and multiple lenses. I did my homework, and discovered the bridge superzooms with the capability of adding lenses and filters to the fixed lens. The Fujifilm Fine Pix HS50EXR got great reviews, and the price seemed very reasonable. This camera did not disappoint.
Summary: I love this camera. I spent 3 weeks deciding between three brands but the reviews of the Fuji sold me. This is not a DSL with interchangeable lenses but the supplied lens is amazing. It is a little hefty, which I actually like, due to it's aluminum internal case and big lens vs. plastic for all others I considered. The 22 mm to 1000 mm zoom lens is phenomenal. A quarter turn of the barrel goes from one extreme to the other.
Summary: This camera exceeded my expectations. I'm a DSLR user but wanted a bridge camera as something to leave in the car and for the range of the lens. I've ended up using it 50% of the time! It's great for when I find a beautiful duck on a pond, etc. - I can handhold the long lens because it's so much lighter than an equivalent lens on a DSLR. Plus the camera seems to have a very good image stabilizer. I've also used the macro capability for very crisp, detailed shots.
