If you want a camera that is capable of mega zoom and has many of the same features as an SLR camera, we recommend looking at the HS30EXR from...

Though the Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR is a solid superzoom, we come away from this review a bit disappointed. When we heard the HS30 would stick with the same zoom ratio as its predecessor, we thought "perfect, they're going to work on image quality...

The Fujifilm FinePix HS30 EXR is, like it's predecessor, a super-zoom with its own very distinctive character and style. The specifications put it on a par with market-leading models from other manufacturers, but they really only tell part of the...

The Fuji HS30 EXR is a pretty standard replacement for the HS20 EXR. It brings a largely improved viewfinder and an Li-ion battery, but it's otherwise just like its predecessor. In other words, it's a very good bridge—or a must-have for...

For 2012, Fuji has taken their popular HS20EXR and added some new upgrades to create the FinePix HS30EXR. While the cameras share very similar specifications, the HS30 does offer some new features that you may or may not see as improvements. These...

And on they roll: the maxi zooms, filling a strong consumer demand. Buyers of bridge cameras like this make their choice to avoid DSLRs, feeling they can happily enjoy enormous zoom reach without the hassle of lugging a bulky camera bag full of...

The 30x Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR is a pleasure to use thanks to a manual zoom lens, Raw support, and a wealth of physical controls, but image quality at higher ISOs is disappointing....

The Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR has a traditional styled body that closely resembles a Digital SLR, however the camera benefits from a large 30x optical zoom lens. The camera has full manual controls with RAW support and a flash hot-shoe it can quite...

By Pocket-lint on 80

The HS30EXR is a notable improvement over the HS20EXR model. It has a best-in-class viewfinder and the inclusion of a rechargeable li-ion battery is welcome. The significant 24-720mm lens will be a deal-maker for many, yet the 16MP sensor can’t...

The HS30EXR takes the superzoom formula and tweaks it into better shape than its predecessor. The 24-720mm manual zoom not only offers a significant range but the hands-on zoom ring makes it feel more DSLR-like than other superzoom cameras. Add to...

You'll likely be attracted to the Fujifilm FinePix HS30 EXR by its long zoom and high resolution, and you wouldn't be disappointed. It's packed with features, produces a great set of pictures and takes no time at all to get to grips...

The key is versatility and a mechanical 30X ultra-wide angle optical zoom lens covering 24-720mm more precisely than any of its peers is just the start. A high-speed EXR CMOS sensor capable of capturing 16 megapixels images at 8 FPS and recording 1080p...

La Fujifilm HS30 EXR è una buon bridge, con molte caratteristiche interessanti. Però la qualità delle foto non è all'altezza delle caratteristiche hardware della fotocamere, che sono sicuramente...

Sie sieht aus wie eine Spiegelreflexkamera – ist aber keine! Einen Prismensucher hat die Fujifilm Finepix HS30EXR nicht und auch das Objektiv lässt sich nicht wechseln. Dafür hat die Bridge-Kamera einen riesigen...

International Review By Les Numériques on 80

Le HS30 EXR est un remplaçant sans histoire du HS20 EXR. Il améliore sensiblement le viseur et adopte une alimentation à batterie, mais le reste demeure conforme à son prédécesseur : très bon, voire incontournable pour...
