Good: most reviewers sympathetic.
Bad: it covers all bases.
Comment: greetings...to-day put down the dollars to acquire,looked in fine detail at quality,features and purchase price. included,fz150,p510,hx200v,sx40 even d3100 in the calculations. enjoyed the hunt for this camera,part of the criteria for obtaining the fujifilm had the added benefit of the actual cost going down to a more sensible level some of the others were climbing far ,far to high ,it may also be a "season greeting " thing. to some the list of out-side control buttons could be daunting enough to go elsewhere. so! it is paid for, just have to be patient for the courier to lob...regards...r/c.
Good: ease of use and execellent quality of photo's and of course the zoom.
Comment: just bought it yesterday. very happy with my purchase and look forward to being able to take better and more creative photo's.
Bad: not much
Comment: why is your price so far out?????
Good: Price, quality, handling, big zoom
Bad: little slow
Comment: After reading a lot of reviews, I think this is gonna be the camera I am gonna buy. The price is good for a beginner in taking photos (like me) and I already had the camera in my hands, but I didn't buy it then. The point is: it fits perfectly in my hands.
looks like it is a very good camera.
Good: RAW image format, manual focus and zoom rings
Comment: @Hiran, I was also looking at the Nikon CoolPix P510, until I saw that it does not support recording images in a RAW image format which preserves the full dynamic contrast range at a higher bit depth.
Also the Fujifilm FinePix HS30 EXR has both a manual zoom ring and a manual focus ring - both big positives.
Good: Does everything
Bad: Cant remember what it does
Comment: I have had this camera 6months and I still need to learn what it is capable of. Very interesting
Comment: Have been spending almost two days now, looking for the best super zoom digital camera out there in the market... and finally, decided to buy Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR over Canon PowerShot SX40 HS, Nikon Coolpix P510 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150. Hope I won't be regretting my decision !! :-)
Good: covers most bases
Comment: greetings...in the buying process this camera kept floating to the top with 2 others.it looks beautiful to the eye,so using our system of choosing boats,"it sails well if it looks right",this could be for us...ronald.c.
Good: Very intuitive câmera. Good fotos in low light conditionz. Amazing exr more.
Bad: Some fotos taken at high ISO presents a anormal amount of pixels.
Comment: Excelent machine. A great UAU
Good: Nearly everything especially the big zoom range
Bad: Manual focus reacts a bit slow
Comment: I own the camera for several weeks now - it has replaced my DSLR camera and gear. I know about the fact, that my DSLR had a bigger sensor - but last time I just hated the heavy and bulky camera and equipment. I'm quite sure if more photo amateurs and hobbyists would be really honest - they would say the same (after a while of using a DSLR). This brings me back to the HS30, I really enjoy this camera - I'm still discovering all the possibilities it offers. What I like most is the DSLR like handling without its size and weight. And for the images, so far the results are covincing me really.
