Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR

 

Fuji's latest 30x superzoom packs plenty of punch for the money.

Manually operated 30x zoom ; Well featured and easy to use ; Flexible EXR modes produce consistent results ; EVF much improved from previous model ; Better battery life than previous model

Still a bit sluggish in the performance stakes ; Quite noisy at mid to high ISO settings

Superzooms are flying off the shelves of late. There have been plenty of new models in the past couple of years and, crucially, they've got a whole lot better than they used to be. What at first may appear nothing more than a subtle upgrade of the...

Best-in-class viewfinder, manual zoom and focus rings, huge zoom range, well designed, a cut above the HS20EXR, close-focus abilities

Image quality lacks detail at crucial mid-high ISO settings, continuous autofocus has limited use, autofocus live preview ‘cuts out’ at longer focal lengths, overexposure issues

What at first may appear nothing more than a subtle upgrade of the Fujifilm HS20 is a far superior bit of kit. The HS30EXR’s new viewfinder is best in class, the addition of a rechargeable Li-ion battery is very welcome, and small (but important)...

Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR (Black) review

 

Fujifilm's 30x zoom HS-series camera hasn't changed much from generation to generation. It more or less just gets fine-tuned, and that's the case with the 2012 version, the FinePix HS30EXR.

The Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR has a great design and feature set for those who like to do more than leave their camera in auto. It also has several shooting options to improve photo quality for difficult lighting.

Getting the best results from the HS30EXR can require a lot of effort and even then its photos might not be good enough for some.

Fujifilm's FinePix HS30EXR is a capable megazoom for those who like the controls of an SLR, but not the expense and weight of one.

Nothing stands out

The Fuji Finepix HS30EXR does offer a number of differences to rival Super Zoom or Bridge digital cameras. The main difference is the twisting lens barrel, but there are other handling aspects that make it that bit closer to a Digital SLR experience....

Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR

 

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.

30x manual zoom lens. Tilting LCD. Excellent physical controls. High-quality EVF. Raw shooting. Hot shoe.

Big. Noisy JPG images at high ISOs. Slow to start up. No mic input.

The camera's menu system is similar to other Fuji cameras, including the FinePix F600EXR compact superzoom ($349.95, 3 stars). Hitting the Menu button brings up a text-based interface that sits on top of the live view frame. From here you can adjust...

Fuji has taken an already a highly regarded super-zoom camera and made it even better. With better shooting performance and various other upgrades, the HS30EXR is a welcomed addition to the HS-series from Fuji. Read more in our Full Conclusion.
