Fuji has taken an already a highly regarded super-zoom camera and made it even better. With better shooting performance and various other upgrades, the HS30EXR is a welcomed addition to the HS-series from Fuji. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Good amount of noise present across the sensitivity range from 200 on up ; ISO 3200 and above are not usable in my opinion ; Some edge softness present at wide angle ; AF system has some difficulties when shooting at full telephoto in low light ; AE...

Fujifilm FinePix HS25EXR Preview

 

FujiFilm continues to upgrade their popular HS series of FinePix super-zooms, and for the first half of 2012 they've released two new models; the HS30EXR and HS25EXR. Both models carry over several of the awesome features users loved on the HS20EXR...

Fujifilm FinePix XP170 Review

 

Well...for $200, we have come to expect a little more for our money. The Fuji XP170 has a decent spec list: it is rugged. It is waterproof. It is dustproof. It is freezeproof. However, the image quality is lackluster and the video is just acceptable.

Waterproof ; Shockproof ; Dustproof ; Freezeproof

Maximum aperture is too slow ; Images are soft in the corners ; Image quality is below average

Fujifilm FinePix HS30 EXR

 

The Fujifilm FinePix HS30 EXR is a 16 Megapixel super-zoom with a 30x stabilised optical range and a 3in flip-up LCD panel. Launched in January 2012, it replaces the HS20 EXR and while the lens range, screen size and sensor resolution are unchanged,...

Big, bright, high resolution EVF ; LCD screen works well in bright light ; Programmable Fn button ; Face tracking AF for movies

Manual Zoom not ideal for video ; Big and heavy - similar to entry-level DSLR ; Low light and stacking modes operate at half resolution

The Fujifilm FinePix HS30 EXR is, like it's predecessor, a super-zoom with its own very distinctive character and style. The specifications put it on a par with market-leading models from other manufacturers, but they really only tell part of the...

Fujifilm FinePix XP170

 

Essentially the same camera as the XP150 but with wireless, the XP170 features the same waterproof (33ft) and durability (6.5ft) ratings as its predecessor. The XP150 is a very recent model so we're a bit confused by the necessity for yet another...

Best Camera for the price

 

This camera at 16mps and 24 to 720mm zoom is the best camera at this price point. The HS30EXR outperforms cameras at 3X the price. HD movie capability, and shooting in RAW and JPEG or both is unquestionably a good deal for an amateur photographer who...

A Ture Must Have

 

I bought this camera because I live in the county and my point and shoot Kodak just wasn't getting it any more. I couldn't get close enough with a 5x zoom and the megapixels at 10 were beginning to show their age! I like this camera because its very...
