The HS10 looks like a terrific camera... and just might be the first fixed-lens megazoom that really competes with low-end DSLRs without actually being one itself.

The sensor is still point-and-shoot small (1/2.3) but I'm willing to give Fujifilm the benefit of the doubt right now. Perhaps their backlit CMOS sensor, combined with the latest image processing algorithms, will make the difference.

In terms of features, one certainly can't ask for more. Okay - I'd really would have liked more resolution in the LCD and EVF. But I'll have to actually seem them in person before passing judgement.

I wonder what camera response is like? That's another area that still separates DSLRs from even the best point-and-shoot cameras.

On paper, the HS10 seems to blow away all other P&S megazooms - even the best from Canon and Panasonic. It would be absolutely fantastic if image quality and response were lifted out of the class entirely - creating a genuine "bridge" camera. The creation of micro four-thirds and other EVILs like the Samsung NX10 makes this absolutely necessary.

I say this not to be negative. But the HS10 is clearly intended to be a serious photographer's camera and one can buy a Panasonic G1 for not much more money. Granted, you need additional lenses with the G1 which is a big plus for this camera. But I think you know what I mean when I say there is now competition for Fujifilm that wasn't there two years ago.

If the HS10 delivers the goods in terms of image quality (What do you think? 80% of micro four-thirds? Halfway between the Canon SX20 and micro four-thirds?) then it will make a solid case for itself as an alternative to EVILs and maybe even low-end DSLRs. Here's hoping anyway.

ya don't compare the canon sx20 to the fujifilm ones especially the s200exr. It's pretty insulting. They are good cameras but i tested samples and It's just not good enough.

80 percent sounds just about right to a DSLR.


What I'm wondering is if it uses exr ccd sensor or is this reserved for the end of the year model? perhaps an s10exr? hmmm....

OK great. I just bought a S200EXR. I don't really need a HI-DEF video cam as I already have a Sanyo HD1010. But this does sound intriguing I suppose. Ignorant as I am about this stuff as yet I get the impression that except for the mega zoom lens this thing isn't as capable or sophisticated a camera as the S200EXR? Or am I wrong.

I think this camera is more of an update to the s100fs. It has no exr as far as i can tell but i didnt do enough reading of course.

the plus on this camera is the tilt screen and the 30x zoom. I doubt the high definition portion would look any better than my sanyo hd1000.

Ill stick with my s200exr until a s300exr pops out or a s300 superccd equivalent. Funny thing here is I don't use the exr capabilities. I'm always shooting in p mode. I'm probably a hs10.....LOL!
