Fujifilm HS20 EXR review at Camera Labs
4 Star Review  cameralabs.com - Oct 9, 2011

Fujifilm's FinePix HS20 EXR is a 16 Megapixel super-zoom camera with a 30x optical range and 3in articulated screen. These specifications sound comparable to many of its super-zoom rivals, but the HS20 EXR boasts a number of features which make it unique. First, the lens employs a mechanical zoom ring, like a DSLR lens. Secondly it takes AA batteries. Third and arguably most important, the sensor can reconfigure itself to become optimised for resolution, lower noise or higher dynamic range. Throw in 1080p video and RAW capabilities and you have a powerful feature-set which will delight enthusiasts. Find out how it compares - and crucially if the clever sensor really works - in our Fujifilm HS20 EXR review.

Fujifilm FinePIx HS20EXR
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Feb 8, 2011

Fujifilms FinePix HS20EXR/HS22EXR is a bridge camera that stops short of being a full DSLR while using an SLR-style body. it is a high-end point-and-shoot with full manual controls and priority modes, and includes a telephoto lens that ranges from 24 - 720mm, for about 30x magnification. It uses Fujifilms new CMOS EXR sensor, which improves contrast range and color fidelity, and is also very sensitive to different scene conditions. The flash detects scene settings and attempts to reduce washout, and there are a variety of shooting convenience features like multiple frames per second, auto release on face recognition, and a continuous mode that allows selection of the best shot to be saved. This camera uses CMOS shift image stabilization, and has a high sensitivity to reduce blurring at long zooms or in low light. Images can be viewed, organized, and searched on the camera with an integrated library assistant. Features ... PROS: (1) large 30x zoom, equivalent to a 24-720mm - makes it easy to get in as close as necessary when taking photos (2) Full HD support - 1080p video recording at 30 frames per second (3) HDMI output - great for high-def photo slide shows and watching recorded 1080p video (4) includes several refinements over its predecessor - better image stabilization, anti-blur and auto-focus (5) pro-like effects - lots of built-in image processing features including DSLR emulation and film simulation filters ... CONS: (1) electronic viewfinder is very low resolution (200k-dot) (2) body size - larger than competing high-end point and shoots (3) just about the same price as an entry-level DSLR with larger sensor, interchangeable lens

worse than fujifilm hs-10
3 Star Review     

Strengths: color,full hd movie

Weakness: noise ,resolution,flash range

i think if this camera took a maximum 10 mp picture noise decreased.flash range is short ,and this camera set to use at least iso 400 in auto mode which increased noise.

Superb camera
5 Star Review   By Reader17 on John Lewis - Nov 23, 2011   

Having not really thought of john Lewis as being somewhere i would look to purchase a camera from, i was pleasantly surprised when i ordered my camera online. The ordering was simple and the camera was ready for collection at the Southampton store as promised. In fact, whilst looking round the store my wife purchased a new food blender. To cap it all, as the camera was slightly cheaper at a local high street specialist, i applied for the price match and was credited with the difference which was a bonus. Thank you

Love it
5 Star Review   By Sallysews on John Lewis - Nov 10, 2011   

I bought the previous model, HS10 almost the same but with a few less bells and whistles. The wide angle lens means I can get everything into the frame I need. The high resolution means the quality is good for magazine and book publishers (which I need). All I have to do is point and shoot. I love that I have control of the zoom, not some silly button to press. I can frame the photo exactly as I need it to be. Not a huge thing but it does cut down on any editing. I have had Fujifilm cameras in the past and keep buying larger ones. This one for me needs no improvement. It does everything I want and more. I take photos of textile works indoors but have taken fabulous shots from a moving car. I force the flash to take photos of individual photos of flowers in the garden at twilight, who knew how wonderful this would be? And it takes AA batteries (which seem to last for ages). This is a real bonus to me as I can buy them almost anywhere if I run out of battery. Specialist batteries to me is a no no. Can you tell, I love my camera!

Fuji Finepix HS20EXR Camera
5 Star Review     

Strengths: 24-720mm zoom lensGood handling feel. Bigger than the point and shoot but not quite as big at the pro cameras. It has good heft and it feels good in your hands while handling and shooting.

Weakness: One minor weakness I've noticed is the set up speed for the next photo. Sometimes it lags in focusing but not too bad.

I like the horizon line in the viewfinder and screen. You will never again have a shot that is slightly off horizontally. I like this feature. I also like the fact that you have one awesome zoom lens that lets you not worry about lugging around extra lenses. I love my Fuji HS20EXR and I would recommend it to even the professionals out there who might want to think about going lighter with their camera. It is a 16 megapixel and 30X optical zoom camera and it is a powerhouse packed in a nice size camera. I'm telling you to try one out, you won't be disappointed.

good if you need 30x optical
3 Star Review   By jampot49 on John Lewis - Aug 31, 2011   

I was a bit cross with the writer of the review in a magazine they said it gave continuous shooting of 8 frames per second, but did not say that you had to be able to hold down a button and turn a knob at the same time, and that any change you made canceled continuous shooting. As a disabled person I found this awkward, and could not set it up in advance because switching off canceled the effect. But it is a good camera but a bit heavy. I personaly think my older lumix FZ38 does a better job, but I may be biased in favour of an old friend.
