Viewfinder, menu, Raw compatibility
Sometimes imprecise autofocus, Pro Lowlight mode not very effective, 1080p video bitrate could be higher; motion blur, Still an insistence on proprietary USB out, Odd choice of AA batteries for power.
Poor photo quality above ISO 400; mixed shooting performance.

The Fujifilm is a pretty thorough point and shoot and it has all the features that you expect from a prosumer camera. The folding screen, the manual focus and zoom controls are also great features to have on any camera. In that aspect, Fujifilm...60

Overall, choosing a winner between these cameras depends on your priorities and tastes. In addition to its longer zoom and higher resolution the Canon is smaller, has a better LCD screen, and better image stabilisation. But while the Canon feels like a...-

Despite the huge 30x optical zoom range, which stretches from 24-720mm, this camera’s lens is comparable in size to a normal 18-55mm SLR kit lens. A lightweight and relatively compact camera, the HS10 offers an image stabiliser as an additional...-

In an era of small digicams this is a monster. The size of a DSLR, it weighs a little under 750g and, mounted into the front of the body, is its big, big feature… a 30x zoom that stretches from a 35 SLR equivalent of an enjoyably wide 24mm...-

Larger and weightier than most entry-level DSLRs, the HS10 is not the most portable option – it’s powered by four AA batteries – but at least it feels solid. Not having introduced a new DSLR in years, this is currently Fujifilm’s...100

We like the Fujifilm FinePix HS10 because its very broad focal range allows for almost every kind of photo. It has manual zoom control and focus ring, an angle-adjustable LCD screen, enjoys rugged build quality and records full HD video. It's not...80

Comprehensively specified "super zoom" offers a best-in-class focal range, with the added compositional advantage of manual focus and zoom rings, plus tilting LCD screen and eye sensor activated electronic viewfinder. If the chunky dimensions and...90

Any camera that can reach out to a massive 720mm in 35mm terms has to be a huge unwieldy beast right? Wrong. FujiFilm’s HS10 has a 30X optical zoom lens but is surprisingly compact for a superzoom. It also boasts a tilting LCD, full HD video, RAW...70

Super-zoom digital cameras have been around for a long time, but it seems that recently most of the manufacturers are treading water with their designs, with only one or two models in their range and only updating them at irregular intervals...80
