Default Steve's Digicams HS10 Review

Quoting from the review, "While not HD camcorder quality, the movies from the HS10 are too shabby." I am wondering if you inadvertantly omitted the word "not" between "...are too..."?

I was also surprised by by your observation of noise at all ISO levels. This is the only review of the HS10 that I remember reading with such a complaint. I cannot comment from personal experience because I have only had mine for a few days.

I think this was a well balanced review. He hit upon all the good and bad points about the camera.

Bottom line - FujiFilm has created a nice Porsumer or Bridge camera that is sure to please those looking for a camera that offers an amazing amount of versatility when compared to most point-n-shoot cameras on the market. While it can capture some nice 10-megapixel photos, they can not be compared to even entry-level dSLRs as far as quality is concerned. I feel that the FujiFilm FinePix HS10 will make a great camera for the hobbyist that is looking for a vast zoom range, and plenty of useful exposure options; not to mention a usable 1080p HD video option. With a street price of about $450, the HS10 offers a good value for the features and performance you are receiving.
Here's a link to the conclusion

Default Steve's Digicams HS10 Review

I still would like to know from the author whether the sentence I quoted in the first paragraph of my original post should be properly read with the word 'not' inserted.

Hey WGlance. Thanks for the feedback. There was a typo in that section that was corrected last night. If you look at the review conclusion, you'll see this now:

"While not HD camcorder quality, the movies from the HS10 are not too shabby."

Hi JimC,

Here's another typo to correct...

Image quality from the HS10 is pretty goof when you consider that even though this camera looks like a dSLR, it still uses a tiny 1/2.3-inch image sensor.
While some images from the HS10 may look goofy, mmost are pretty decent

Default Iso also didn't agree

I did not experience ISO problems with the HS10, which I have been using several weeks now. Here is a pic of a Mikado Pheasant I took at 2600 meters in Taiwan on a bike ride the other day. The ISO is 1600.
