Fujifilm FinePix HS50 EXR Review

Buying a camera can be tough as there is a lot of confusion as to what kind of camera is best suited for one’s needs. The most important features that any photographers look for, be it professionals or amateur, are value, simplicity and picture quality. The new Fujifilm FinePix HS50 EXR 'Point and Shoot' Camera has all these three features that are required in a camera to make it an all-around good choice.

 

There is a slight difference between a DSLR camera and a 'Point and Shoot' camera: in case of a DSLR, there will always be a learning curve regardless of the system chosen, and this again is multiplied by the lens, filter and even the flash choice. However, in case of a 'Point and Shoot' camera, there is the possibility to click great pictures with a fixed lens, built in flash, and very little to learn other than the process to turn the camera on or zoom in and out. This Fujifilm model is a 'Point and Shoot' camera with fixed lens. It features an incredible 42X optical zoom (24-1000mm) that can be stretched to 84X (equivalent to 2000mm), using Fuji's Intelligent Digital Zoom. The HS50 also has image stabilization for long shots as well as an aperture rating of F2.8-F5.6.

 

The Fujifilm HS50 EXR is a 16 megapixel camera with a 3' 920K-dot TFT full color LCD monitor that is also capable of full swivel operation. The HS50 works wonders in low light as well as close up shots. Its EXR CMOS II sensor features a resolution of 16MP. Its sensor also makes it possible to click macro pictures without much effort from about 1cm away. The device is also capable of Full HD 1080P video at a frame rate of 60FPS. It can, therefore, capture full HD video at 1920 x 1080 pixels, 1280 x 720 pixels as well as 640 x 480 pixels, with stereo sound. The HS50 is a very compact camera, capable of utilizing SDXC flash cards on top of SD/SDHC, which indicates that the user can use higher capacity cards for extended photo as well as video.

 

The EXR CMOS II sensor features the Fujifilm's EXR technology, allowing the sensor to adjust in order to optimize for either “high resolution”, “wide dynamic range” or “high sensitivity and low noise” shooting conditions. The camera also has an EXR II processor, which enables an impressive burst rate of up to 11 fps, i. e., a maximum of six frames at full resolution, along with a start-up speed of just 0.5 seconds. The model's autofocus performance is worth mentioning as well, as explicated earlier, 0.05 seconds, and hence, the world's fastest in a compact camera.

 

The added benefit of the Fujifilm HS50 is that its capability to capture RAW files, along with JPEGs. The camera also has two kinds of shooting modes: the conventional PASM manual settings, as well as a series of automated shooting modes which can help those with less shooting experiences. All in all, the Fujifilm HS50 can be considered as one among the great 'Point and Shoot' cameras that is worth its value, especially due to its simplicity, good cost-benefit and great picture quality.

  • The Good :
    Great low light photography, Extremely fast focus
  • The Bad :
    Still quite bulky even with one of the most compact designs in its category
Our score:
4.5 / 5
