4 out of 5 eggsProduces excellent still images & has a host of fearures, but has video issues because the zoom is not smooth.

Pros: For still images, the HS20 is the best long zoom bridge camera. The EXR sensor is the prize. The HS20 is much smaller than a DSLR, has a phenomenally long zoom, articulated LCD, & offers HD video. The HS20 has unparalleled features; a Swiss army knife of a camera--compact, with every tool imaginable, & giving amazing still images if properly used. Comparing the HS20 to a DSLR is misguided. A DSLR will be noticeably sharper at high ISO, but will be substantially larger. The camera that gets the shot is the one you can carry with you; there’s no way I can carry my D5100 around with an equivalent of a 30X lens. With the HS20 it’s not a problem. You should use the HS20 in EXR mode even though it technically reduces the resolution in 1/2, from 16MP, to 8MP. Fixation on pixel count alone is a trap. Consumers want the highest MP sensor even if it means terrible image quality. It’s worth researching how the EXR sensor combines two 8MP images to radically outperform a sensor set at 16P.

Cons: The HS20 tradeoff is some features are not ideally implemented, most noticeably in video.The video is excellent if properly configured; until you try to zoom. The manual zoom is fine for stills, but it's not smooth & therefore problematic when zooming (an issue not present in the Fuji S200EXR with one of the smoothest lenses I've ever used, so it's inexcusable on Fuji's part, even if the S200EXR doesn't support HD video). You can effectively zoom the HS20 in video, but its a pain. Fuji radically improved the resolution of the LCD on the HS20 over the HS10 (which was awful), & it's excellent. The EVF is still poor though. You can use it if glaring light makes the LCD unusable, but it's only good for basic composition; nothing else. Sound recording is good, but an external mic output would have cost little & been a big plus. My Nikon D5100 is superior in all ways, but with the lenses its a monster. So I use it when I have a specific project, otherwise I always carry the HS20 with me.

Other Thoughts: The HS20 is simply too expensive at this point. I paid 1/2 Newegg's price & also got a 16GB SD card, charger with 4 batteries, & Lowepro case, so I'm satisfied. I wish Fuji took more from its stellar S200EXR; my choice for best bridge camera. I use the HS20 more because it is far more compact & has more features, but the S200EXR build quality (titanium & aluminum) is beautiful. Unlike the HS20, it doesn't have an articulated LCD, but the EVF is excellent. It uses the same Fuji EXR sensor as the HS20, but quality is better at high ISO as the sensor is larger (close to a 4/3 sensor, while other bridge camera sensors are close in size to point & shoot cameras). My biggest qualm is the superior build of the S200EXR lens; smooth as silk it gives perfect zooming in video. The S200EXR has the image quality, build quality, & the ergonomics of a quality DSLR, but also the size & weight of a DSLR; albeit with a much longer zoom. Choose your trade off; the HS20 is worth owning at the right price.

5 out of 5 eggsJaw dropping photos

Pros: 1. Fully usable 30 x zoom lens

2. All 4 EXR modes

3. Super IQ(image quality) photos outdoors both day and night

4. Great IQ indoors with all lighting conditions

5. Light weight

6. Ability to take HD videos while shooting still photos at the same time

7. Excellent audio while in movie mode

8. 16MP allows for no reduction in IQ when cropping

9. Saves because superior IQ reduces the need for photo editing

10. I love the Electronic view finder especially using full zoom. Using your face for support helps alot with stability

11. Fast and smooth operation with low to moderate zoom

12. Stitching with panoramic shots(you must try this)

Cons: 1. Out of control auto focus while shooting video with moderate zoom

2. Either too little or no anti vibration/shake support with video

3. Slow to focus when approaching full zoom

Other Thoughts: The HS20 is much more that a simple point and shoot so additional time is needed to catch the learning curve. I strongly advise you to read the online owners manual and save it to computer desktop for quick reference for at least the first 30 days. You must also purchase a highly rated class 10 SDHC card along with sanyo eneloop or similar type rechargeable NiHI batteries. I have no issues with my SDHC card writing speed and focus speed when using low to moderate zoom. Just point the lens at your subject, press the shutter button halfway for approximately 1 second, then press the shutter all the way down. Focus speed does slow as you get closer to full zoom but that is to be expected. With a little patience i was able to take quality photos at 30 times zoom without a tripod. If I was unsatisfied with the photos in EXR Auto i would just try one of the other 3 EXR modes. One of the four EXR modes worked extremely well for me 90% of the time. I don't see a need to ever operate in manual.

1 out of 5 eggsFrustrating Unrefined Power!

Pros: Lots of powerful features. This camera has great specs that you can read about. But great specs don't always mean great results. Read the cons to understand what I mean.

Cons: Like a clumsy giant, the HS20 has a lot of power, but trips all over itself making all it's power useless. Here is a list of some of the major problems.

1. Slowest focus of any megazoom camera.
2. Jerky toy like manual zoom lens barrel.
3. Painfully slow write speeds (disguised by an internal buffer that make you think it is writing faster).
4. Unusable, unwatchable video mode. Word cannot describe it!
5. Faulty, useless electronic image stabilization.
6. LCD and Viewfinder freeze frame focusing. I have to explain this to you. When press the shutter button half way to focus, the LCD and Viewfinder freeze up during the focusing process which can take one to three seconds.

Other Thoughts: I have taken over 500 pictures with the HS20. My feelings in a word; DISAPPOINTED! The HS20 can take good pictures, but you have to stand on your head, pat your stomach, and touch your tongue to your nose to git it to do it. The really sad thing is that it could be so much better then it is if fujifilm would just refine the features it has. It has the power to be the best megzoom on the market, but implementation of all it's power is quirky and unrefined and it makes the camera a misery to use. You need to be on Prozac to take pictures, and Ritalin to take video (especially if you plan to watch it).

If I had to pick the thing I hate the most about this camera, it would be the LCD and Viewfinder freeze frame focusing. You can literally spin 180 degrees and still see the same images on the screen and viewfinder as when you first pressed the shutter button. This makes it impossible to take pictures of even slow moving subjects.
Don't buy this camera until fujifilm refines it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: compatible waited for this camera a couple of months. Choose it over a full DSLR camera. I need to have a camera Very easy to use and light weight but not a toy. You may want to read the instruction booklet and the on line PDF with longer instructions. You will be able to get a pic that is as good as the more expensive DSLR cameras from this price point. Feels good in the hand.

I have small hands is easy to use. No need to change lenses. Telephoto is good. I love the ERX option/ the color in the shots. This camera will allow for longer 28 minute video if you get the right card. This camera allows me to work alone with out baggage.

Cons: Not as compatible with my Mac. The box and literature indicates Mac compatible. Fuji support said RAW files are supported on a PC and only with Fuji Silky Pix. This was not my first choice as soft ware, but necessary if you want to extract RAW files and is very easy to use. Was an OK option for me, lucky I have a PC also.

Good other wise with Mac if you don't need to convert RAW files.

I use the NIHI batteries for longer life, would had preferred a lithium battery pack for an addition to the price.

Other Thoughts: It is very competitive at this price point. An educated or new user can get out a lot out of this camera. I am not sure point and shot covers it's full capacity.

I love Newegg, who replaced the first camera with my coverage when I had a problem. I like Fujicon lenses and will continue to buy Fuji over better known brand names.
