Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR Review

 

The FinePix HS50EXR is Fujifilm's latest offering in the super zoom segment, which replaces the HS30EXR. Mind you, it's not a cosmetic upgrade along with higher zoom and a few other improvements over its predecessor. Although it's difficult to...

The left side of the camera has a new addition, which is a switch to set the focus to single servo AF, continuous servo AF and manual AF. The button in the centre toggles zoomed view to check the focus in manual AF mode. You adjust the focus by...

Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR

 

The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR is a big camera with an impressive 42x zoom lens and plenty of controls, but its images don't hold up in low light.

Manual 42x zoom lens. Sharp images. High-quality vari-angle LCD. Sharp EVF. Lots of physical controls. Raw shooting support

As big as an SLR. Limited continuous shooting. Images suffer at higher ISO settings. Nonstandard mic input

The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR ($549.95 list) is a big camera with an impressive zoom lens. It's styled like a D-SLR, complete with manual control over the zoom, and covers a staggering 24-1,000mm range. Additional features like a sharp EVF, vari-angle...

Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR

 

The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR is much more than a large point-and-shoot with a long lens.

The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR has a nice 42x manual zoom lens; fast performance; very good picture quality for its class; a lot of shooting options, including manual and semimanual modes and raw capture; and excellent hardware features.

Its manual zoom isn't great for zooming while capturing movies; it's large and heavy; for those uninitiated with Fujifilm's EXR sensors, getting the best results can require a little extra effort.

The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR's features and performance are well beyond those of your average point-and-shoot megazoom, making it a fine choice for enthusiasts and as a family camera.

"Very Nice Camera for General Use, Wildlife and Birding"

 

The new Fujifilm HS50EXR is a very nice upgrade of the HS30EXR. The best feature of this camera is the 42x (1000 mm eq.) F2.8-5.6 zoom lens. It is very sharp throughout its range. The next best feature is the very fast and accurate focusing. Fuji uses...
