Serious photographers wanting the versatility and performance of an SLR system without the bulk or expense now have the perfect solution in the shape of the new Fujifilm FinePix HS10. The latest addition to Fujifilm's award-winning range of long zoom 'bridge' camera offers an unprecedented feature set that combines a powerful 30x Fujinon zoom lens with sophisticated photographic controls, advanced functionality and SLR-like handling all in a single unit. Utilising cutting-edge Back Side Illuminated CMOS image capture and class-leading Fujinon optics, the HS10's unique mix of advanced technologies brings to the market several new features designed to make achieving professional-looking pictures easier than ever
A high quality 24mm wide-angle, Fujinon
30x zoom gives incredible versatility
from an all-in-one camera
Extreme 30x Zoom
The HS10's real talking point is its incredibly versatile 30x zoom lens. This is the world's first Fujinon 30x optical zoom in a compact camera and offers users an ultra flexible zoom range of 24mm at the wide-angle to 720mm at the telephoto. This camera is ready to take on any photographic subject thrown at it and will achieve pin-sharp results.
With a barrel zoom lens you can perfectly frame shots with the hugely versatile 30x zoom by rotating the lens ring to zoom in and out to achieve just the right composition.
BSI CMOS 10 Megapixel Sensor
The HS10 features a 10 megapixel BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor which brings high speed and new features to this 30x zoom camera. The faster CMOS sensor means the HS10 is capable of breaking boundaries of 'long zoom compacts' by introducing incredible high speed shooting functions for the ultimate in performance.
Superb New Shooting Functions
You'll find it hard to miss a shot with the HS10:
Always miss the key moment? Not any more.
Try Fujifilm's Best Frame Capture technology.
This is great when trying to capture sports scenes, action shots and fast moving subjects. Capture an impressive 10 frames per second at full 10 megapixel resolution for 7 continuous frames for incredible results.
- Best Frame Capture Mode Don't quite know when the action will happen? Half-press the shutter button and the HS10 will start to take photos. Then, when the special moment happens, all you have to do is fully press the shutter button and the camera will save that shot and the seven previous shots, ensuring that you will have every moment of the action recorded, and giving you the opportunity to select the best shot!
- Super High Speed Movie Sometimes things happen so fast you can barely take it in with your own eyes. The FinePix HS10 can freeze the action at up to an amazing 1000 frames per second, so you can see every single movement and detail step by step and in slow motion.
Using Multi Frame Technology you can really advance your photographic expression thanks to the HS10's innovative motion based functions:
- Sweep Panorama Simply sweep the camera right or left, up or down and create your own stunning panoramic images. The super-fast BSI CMOS sensor can capture multiple images, and its powerful image processor stitches them together seamlessly to create beautiful panoramic photos - all in camera. No editing required!
- Tourist Remover Remove unwanted tourists from your pictures by using 'Motion Remover' to create a postcard-like image, meaning you don't have to wait around waiting for people to get out of the shot. This useful function captures five successive shots, analyses them and removes moving subjects. The result is an impressive, picture perfect image* with no unwanted distractions.
*Image saved at 2 megapixel resolution
Capture every single step
with Multi Motion Capture
*Image saved at 2 megapixel resolution
Pro Low-light Mode Ideal for shooting stationary subjects in low light, this mode automatically takes a series of four high-sensitivity & low-noise exposures and then combines them into an image with significantly reduced noise levels than the single exposures.
Full 1080p HD Movie & Photo Capture
Sit in the comfort of your front room and share those special memories with friends and family in stunning high definition. The FinePix HS10 features full HD for photos and videos. Simply connect your camera to a HDTV via the camera micro HDMi port you are all ready to go.
*Cable required. Sold separately
Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) with "Eye Sensor"
Put your eye to the EVF and "Eye Sensor" automatically switches the camera's display from the LCD to the highly responsive electronic viewfinder, making it even easier to compose your shots.
CMOS Shift + Digital Image Stabilisation
Nothing is more disappointing than taking a photo only to find out it has come out blurred. By combining CMOS sensor shift and Digital Image Stabilisation the HS10 can minimise blur so often caused by camera shake and subject movement, even when shooting at the full 30x zoom.
Tracking Auto Focus
Great when shooting sports and action photography, Tracking AF will 'lock on' to a moving subject* keeping it in focus for as long as the shutter button is half pressed. As soon as the shutter is fully pressed an image is captured with the subject in perfect focus, even when shooting at the full 30x zoom.
*Subjects other than people can also be automatically tracked.
Take three photos of the same subject
at different zoom settings and later
choose which one you prefer.
Zoom Bracketing Mode
A single press of the shutter takes three shots at differing zoom magnifications. The original image, a 1.4x zoom image and a 2.0x zoom image are all recorded separately and saved to the memory card so you can choose which crop you prefer.
A selectable frame on the LCD lets you bracket and track moving subjects in standard wide view and will save it as a cropped image.
Direct Shooting Buttons
Quickly access and adjust the camera's most important settings and controls with the direct shooting buttons. Conveniently located to the left of the LCD these buttons allow you to easily change settings in an instant.
- ISO Button - adjusts the ISO sensitivity setting for superb performance in low light with minimal noise
- AE Button - changes AE to Spot AE for a perfectly exposed subject
- AF Button - Instantly switches to AF and ensures the camera keeps your subject perfectly in focus
- AF C/S/M Button - switch between Auto Focus, Continuous, Spot and Manual at the touch of a button
- WB Button - choose Auto WB and let the HS10 optimise the white balance for you, or alternatively select one of the presets depending on your requirements
Movie REC Button
A one-touch movie record button enables you to capture all the action in full HD 1080-30p movie clips with stereo audio - it couldn't be easier to shoot high definition videos.

This review is my opinion.
I bought this camera for the extreme range of the manual zoom lens and was worried that the image quality would suffer because of that lens. At normal printing sizes up to A4, I can honestly say that this camera delivers exemplary images all the way from the wide angle end (a very wide 24mm) to the very close up telephoto (a stunning 720mm reach). It encompasses all the needs of myself as an aspiring amateur photographer in that it delivers over Macro, Landscape, Portrait and Wildlife photography, in a single package with no lens changing, no danger of getting dust or dirt on the sensor and without a tripod being essential (although having one helps!).
It has good ISO performance down to ISO800 and can be pushed further if needed. It has all the modes and settings that I need to get creative in my own, less than expert, way but can also be used in a variety of automatic modes when I am feeling lazy. This will suit the less experienced. The on-board flash is very good.
Although it will take good pictures out of the box, this camera can take some getting used to to get the very best out of it. The manuals (you get a slim printed one and a more comprehensive one on CD) are pretty awful, but reading the CD manual twice will make the learning curve less steep.
The HS10 shoots video in lots of modes from full HD with stereo sound to 1000fps slow motion. There are some downsides to it (like camera noise on the audio and the zoom being less than perfectly smooth). This doesn't concern me because I bought it as a stills camera.
This camera lets you shoot RAW images, but the write times to the card are extremely slow.
Lots of owners have had problems with old rechargeable batteries giving erroneous low battery indications. A new set of ENELOOP type AA cells seem to sort this out. These are available under various brand names.
Despite its quirks, this is a superb value camera for this sort of money. You cannot buy, anywhere, a single body/lens combination with exactly this performance for any money. You can get close to it, but at enormous expense (severral thousands of pounds) and only by post processing images after taking them.
IN MY OPINION, OVERALL, THE BEST BRIDGE CAMERA FOR MY NEEDS, TO DATE.
I suppose it all comes down to what you want to use it for and what your criteria are. Mine are:
a) must be able to take good still photos of:
landscapes and outdoor scenes
rock concert scenes
b) I also want a camera that's got the facility for HD video (now we've got a grandchild)
c) needs to have a good manual zoom
d) isn't too heavy
e) reasonably priced
I could satisfy all the above apart the last two with a decent DSLR - and I've looked at these in the past - but DSLRs are nearly twice the price (and even more if you want a decent 30x zoom lens) and heavier (and heavier still if you have to have the sort of zoom that's integral to the HS10).
I've had my HS10 for around three weeks now, and I'm still getting to know my way around. I've tried most of the basics, and it seems, so far, pretty-well exemplary. I had a wren family nesting right outside my back door and set up the camera on a tripod in HD movie mode and got some terrific half-hour movies at the touch of a single button (and the stills from the movie were good too). I've tried it on full extension of the zoom for photos of birds, the early evening moon (even without a tripod, it produced brilliant results) and aircraft at my local gliding club. I've used the macro setting (much better than that of my previous Fuji S9500 zoom) to great effect. It's comparatively light (well under a kilo). And, as has been remarked, it takes standard AA batteries (and I haven't had a problem with battery life to date).
There are some downsides though and it's only fair to point them out:
The printed brief manual that comes with it is very brief indeed - it just tells you the basics. As well as being provided on disc, the full manual is available to download from Fuji in PDF format. In many ways this is better than a printed version as you can do a search on your computer for key words - and find things far faster than thumbing through a booklet (and you can, of course, print out relevant pages if you're going to be using the camera out and about).
The manual zoom doesn't glide smoothly, so is not entirely satisfactory for video work (though for many people the HD video will be a bonus, so this won't be a big factor).
Start up time is slow, and it can also be slow to change mode. This speed issue is something which seems to be endemic to Fuji cameras (this is my fifth Fuji digital camera, so I speak from experience) and really should have been addressed by now. I don't, as a rule, use raw mode but again, long write delays are unacceptable these days.
The default is for the image to show on the screen rather than through the viewfinder (VF). The camera is clever though, and if you place your eye close to the VF, the display switches to the VF. But that produces a delay. I prefer to use the VF for most work, though for video it can be useful to use the screen. I've not worked out yet if there's an override (let me know if there is!).
Despite these flaws, overall I'm very pleased. It's well built, solid, compact, and good to the touch, with a positive response from the controls. It's very reasonably priced for a camera with such good specs. So, if you're looking for a high-spec all-in-one bridge camera, this could well be the one for you.
It was so easy, I have been getting some truly fabulous pictures just from messing sround with it. I'm a mum, who bought this primarily to take pics of my son/holidays/dog etc, but I've found myself doing all sorts of things with it and the picture and video quality has been great.
I will try to get to grips with the more technical side of this amazing camera, but for now, I'm happy with pointing and snapping.
If you're a beginner, dont be scared of this camera, its the bees knees and the price is great too.
