Simply the BEST,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix HS20EXR Digital Camera - (16MP, 30x Optical Zoom) 3-inch LCD (Electronics)First things first: BUY THIS CAMERA!
I don't want to be a pro photographer. I can't be bothered learning all the manual settings on cameras...but I do want the best pictures possible without the work :-)
I've owned many smaller point and shoot cameras and have had reasonable pictures. My brother in law has an SLR with a bag full of lenses which creates amazing pictures. This camera however is as good in my opinion.
The zoom is incredible! I use it in the EXR and AUTO setting 'all the time' and the camera does all the figuring out of the lighting etc and the results constantly amaze myself and my family. I don't need a bag of lenses as the one attached is outstanding thus saving on money, weight and space.
Please watch this video review to see for yourself how incredible this camera is:
I've uploaded some pics from a recent Canada holiday in the customer pics section at the top of the page, which I have made into a photobook using vistaprint and its just outstanding!
I have a Sony HD camcorder so I don't bother with the video side of the HS20. The quality (HS20) is great but it can be slow to focus if you're zooming in and out. I bought the HS20 purely for great pictures.
If you want SLR results and quality without the expense and learning curve and want a very well built camera with masses of features then this is for you.
