Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR ready to take on the competition

 

Lots of features and strong performance make this a top choice.

The ; has a nice 42x manual zoom lens; fast performance; very good picture quality for its class; a lot of shooting options, including manual and semimanual modes and raw capture; and excellent hardware features.

Its manual zoom isn't great for zooming while capturing movies; it's large and heavy; for those uninitiated with Fujifilm's EXR sensors, getting the best results can require a little extra effort.

The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR's features and performance are well beyond those of your average point-and-shoot megazoom, making it a fine choice for enthusiasts and as a family camera.

Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR review

 

A strong all-rounder with particularly fine ergonomics, but image quality is bettered elsewhere

The FinePix HS50EXR can't quite match the leaders for photo or video quality, but it's close enough to keep it in the running. Meanwhile, its exceptional viewfinder and ergonomics really boost the enjoyment of using it. That may well be enough to...

Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR

 

The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR is a big camera with an impressive 42x zoom lens and plenty of controls, but its images don't hold up in low light.

Manual 42x zoom lens. Sharp images. High-quality vari-angle LCD. Sharp EVF. Lots of physical controls. Raw shooting support.

As big as an SLR. Limited continuous shooting. Images suffer at higher ISO settings. Nonstandard mic input.

Performance and Conclusions The HS50EXR starts and grabs a shot in about 1.5 seconds. Its shutter lag is an acceptable 0.2-second, and it can fire off a burst of 7 JPG photos at just under 8 frames per second. If you opt to shoot Raw or Raw+JPG the...

Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR Review

 

The FinePix HS50EXR is Fujifilm's latest offering in the super zoom segment, which replaces the HS30EXR. Mind you, it's not a cosmetic upgrade along with higher zoom and a few other improvements over its predecessor. Although it's difficult to...

The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR is priced at an MRP of Rs 32,999, but you can buy it online for around Rs 1,000 less. Considering what you get and the kind of performance this camera offers, we feel it’s a bit overpriced. It would have been an attractive...

Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR Review

 

Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR Review gives detail information on the latest camera. This new bridge camera comes with impressive sensors and long zoom lens.

• Whopping long zoom lens ; • Advanced processing system (EXR) ; • Sharp images ; • Decent EVF

• Pictures distorts at high ISO ; • Useless photo editing tool included ; • Zoom defocuses while making video ; • Feels heavy ; • Bit expensive

We wouldn’t say FinePix HS50EXR was awesome, but yes, it is worth the price tag it comes with. Still, if cost was few thousand lesser, it could have been prove to be a good deal for mid-income consumers. Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR Price in India is...

Who tested this camera? I bought it after testing your so called best buys and they were nowhere near it! The manual zoom is fast, accurate and perfect. I bought it for use as a back-up camera for my Nikon D7000 for the Farnborough Air Show in 2014. In...
