Summary: I like the manual zoom over the motorized ones. I'm a bit familiar with Fuji, they are in between good and excellent.When it came out, it was one of the better cameras, considering price/quality. But the main reason for me to get this one was it was used just a couple of times (you can tell, not used many time) no scratch no ding, nothing.Yes, it was used. came in original box and I payed $229 total.
Summary: This is the second hs10 I have had. I sold the first one and now I bought it again. The zoom is awesome, the pics are really sharp and clear, but not everything is perfect on it. The things that call my attention were: - slow motion video (awfull.... extremly dark and the resolution is uffffff) - full hd videos (videos are very dark on low light or indoors and only last 30 minutes, the videos are well when the sun shines).
Summary: I'm still new to this camera - but what I've figured out so far I really like. It takes great pictures and is user friendly. There is a bit of a learning curve, but once you figure it out you will love it.
Summary: I got this camera as a mobile camera instead of lugging around my DSLR. It has a lot of amazing features! I typically like to take pictures of sunsets and this camera does wonders for that! I just put it under the "C" mode and switch the color to high and the pictures it produces are amazing! The only draw back is the noise of the pictures when viewing them at 100%. But if you don't really need to depend on large size photos, then the noise won't matter for you.
Summary: Looks like the learning curve is up again. This camera has a great deal of features - and that means a great deal to learn. I really like the compact feeling of the body-yet it still has the feel of my old Canon xsi. I have downsized to reduced the amount of equipment needed. I also like the idea of having the 1080 HD movies-need to try this yet but there are some fantastic scenes on youtube.
Summary: I've had simple "point and shoot" cameras forever until a friend got into photography very seriously with DSLR cameras, and so I was interested... until I priced DSLR cameras. This led me to looking at "bridge cameras", wich fill the gap between Point and shoot and DSLR. Of all I looked at the HS-10 Had the most features/toys by far. The "low light pro" and HDR bracketing interested me most, and having used them I am very pleased with both.
Unparalleled all-in-one camera - even beyond DSLRs
25 June 2010
Summary: While perhaps not an uber-professional photographer's tool, the Fujifilm "FinePix" HS10 has so many capabilities and features that work for me, they're hard to list. Nonetheless, here's the trying. To start, while it's "only" 10.3 MP, don't forget that claiming more mega-pixels than that in a small-chip-format camera (aka, a non-DSLR) only leads to increased noise (leading some manufacturers to even leave off the RAW format from some cameras). But, for the HS 10,...
