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...

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...

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...

The Fuji FinePix HS10 ($499) is an SLR-style super zoom camera with a whopping 30X lens, a back-illuminated, high speed CMOS sensor, large articulating LCD display, full manual controls, and Full HD video recording -- to name but a few features. As...

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...

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...

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...

Although the Fujifilm FinePix HS10 fools you into thinking that it is a serious camera for serious photographers it is still very much a mid-range point-and-shoot camera in big body. Its best trick is the massive 30x zoom, which makes it great for...

One of only two superzooms to offer a colossal 30x optical zoom, the Fujifilm HS10 stands out from its competition with a wide feature set and an attractive DSLR-like...

The all-in-one superzoom digital camera is dead? Long live the all-in-one superzoom! Fuji makes that argument loud and clear with the multi-talented FinePix HS10, which packs a class-leading 30x (24-720mm) zoom lens into a chunky but lightweight...

With its impressive feature set and abundance of external controls the HS10 is almost in a different class of camera than the rivals in this test. If pixel-level image quality is not on top of your list of priorities, you want proper DSLR-like controls...

The Fuji Finepix HS10 has a multitude of features including a 30x wide angle lens. It also has a number of manual controls. At the time of the review this is the longest lens available on a compact digital camera. As well as the long lens Fuji has...

Fantastic controls, a massive zoom, lots of fun features and excellent low-light performance make this the best ultra-zoom camera we’ve ever seen...

Superzooms are often disappointing, with poor definition at longer focal lengths, sluggish operation and average handling, but the Fujifilm FinePix HS10 is an exception. It's big and expensive, but it's also pretty darned good...

FujiFilm continues to create powerful super-zoom models, with their latest model being the FinePix HS10. This unit boasts some awesome features, from its 30x meag-zoom lens, 10-megapixel BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS image sensor, full 1080p HD...

With a 30x zoom, the HS10 seems to be the ideal camera in any situation. It delivers a big zoom range, but falls short in other...

The Fujifilm Finepix HS10 has enough photo features to keep you occupied, but not so many that you have to pick up the manual to understand why you might like to try them. The slow motion feature alone might be enough to tempt more creative users....
