Default Finepix HS20 Manual mode

Hi Everyone ,
I've had my HS20 for about 3 months now and I have to say 'at first' I was not over impressed with it,but after trying all the various settings, and ready to accept it as just average ,I discovered manual mode,and it was one of those 'eureka moments'.
Ever since then I love this camera.I've had none of the problems with overheating (maybe mine is a later model) and the focusing is fine.
I think the 30x barrel zoom is just so versatile and I've had some great images even at full zoom.Here's a link to my Flickr page to take a look.

I would suggest anyone who has this camera and is not happy, to try the manual mode and with some trial and error you will be surprised..
Thanks for listening Tony ..

As a HS-20 owner, I can say the same thing. But, that's true of almost any camera with a manual mode. The HS-20 is one fine camera, no doubt. Welcome aboard!
