Is that F-22 really that pale/aluminium colour or is it the sun...?
Looks great... :)

WYSIWYG...The Raptor has a radar-absorbing paint. The plane-heads I was with and our LtCol guide say it's sort of difficult to get a good photo of because of it. I'd say the HS50 did an admirable job.

Little out there with regards the HS50....
What are your overall thoughts/impressions..?

You must not be looking in the right places, Simon :D

The HS50EXR is, by far, the best bridge camera Fuji has produced to date. The reviews from both user and professional reviewers has been stellar. And, I concur. Focus is almost instantaneous, almost NO shutter lag, IS is much improved... I could go on, but you get the picture (pun intended). The ONLY niggle reviews come up with is the video. I don't shoot video with my STILL cameras, so I can't comment.
