Default Owners Of HS10 and HS20 Post Here

I heard that bhphotovideo shipped the first of the pre-ordered HS10 in the last few days. If you owned the HS10 and bought an HS20 please post your comparisons of the two cameras in this thread.

I am most interested in learning

How low light shooting compares, I talking both low light indoor shooting and outdoor shooting in the late evening as the sun goes down (is the HS20 much better and can it produce brighter and sharper images over the HS10)

Shot to shot how much faster is it

High Speed shoot (multi frame brusts) can we really get more than 1 second worth of frames when shooting at 3fps, 5fps, and 8fps. Hoping we can get several seconds of 3fps shooting

and of course anything else you find better or worse or useful in the HS20 over the HS10.

Just to be clear in this thread I am looking for comparisons of the HS10 to the HS20 from those who have used thw HS10 and also just bought the HS20. I am not looking for examples of the HS20 unless it is directly compared to the HS10. Thanks for posting just not the main propose of why I started this thread.

Hi All.
Just got my HS20 yesterday. I have yet to learn all that it can do, however the First disappointing thing was the Manual. Very little info, just basic. Munu is somewhat easy but if one has not had a Fuji, i had a HS10, then it can be confusing without a detailed manual. Even the Disc manuel is not great. Pictures are very sharp, better colour,speed is better.
More later when i can get to it.
Is there a detailed manuel out there I can access.

Hi,

Firstly, congrats on your new HS20... Wish I could have one here in India, but seems like they will not launch until May...

Can you check the maximum and minimum aperture in the aperture priority mode, as well as the shutter speeds in shutter priority mode.

It would be great if you could give a detailed review on the camera itself with its various functions. I read in amazon reviews that there was a heat warning when shooting HD videos for a decent long time. It seems, Fujifilm would provide a firmware to rectify the issue.

More to hear from you.

Thanks,

Saket Bajaj.

Default First impressions

These are just my initial impressions. I've only had it in hand for 45 minutes but these are the things that stood out.
  • Shot-to-shot time is noticeably faster. I'm using a class 10 SD card.
  • Higher ISO capabilities. I've had it up to 1600 with VERY little discernible noise. 3200 is where it starts to become noticeable.
  • The LCD is like watching a HD TV in comparison to the HS-10. Remarkable.
  • The light meter seems easier to control. In the HS-10, it moves so fast that it's hard to control.
  • Faster focusing in all modes.

shot time is faster, image quality has definitly improved, but the video is horrible and completly unusable, goes oof if the camera moves a fraction of an inch. unless they can fix the video, i wont be keeping the camera.

I have an HS10 and the only reason I see to get an HS20 is the screen resolution. I only use the camera on manual and never with raw.
In the HS20 they should make manual video options, because in the HS10 when recording video everything is in auto.
About the image quality, I think both must be the same.
