As Joms said what planet are you on.

The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR represents a definite step forward for the series, at times pushing towards a giant leap. The positives are clear: there's a more responsive autofocus system than before that's now always engaged even at the longest of focal lengths, alongside improved image quality and the eminently usable design.

I need say no more

It is better than previous models, just as it should be, but the test also shows weaknesses in telephoto shooting. Just like I said.

What weakness? Like this?

Smeary, ugly base ISO-100 shot with methane sky lol. At more than 600mm, HS50 will eat your FZ200 alive.

lol people take things so seriously, you'd think you dissed their family or something.  Just a camera worth a few hundred folks, we all know the turnover rate with cameras- I buy a new one every three years or so, so it's no use getting attached to what we have right now, in a few years we'll all have new and better toys anyway.

Same here. I bought the HS10 when it came out and the 50 is a step up. 3 year's time there'll be an HS80/90 and we can all have the same discussion.

Some people need to stop the tit-for-tat nonsense that is going to max this thread out again.

Blind fundamental arguments tend to get absolutely nowhere and this one is definitely following that trend.

Objectively there really is not the difference in IQ that our two main antagonists maintain. It is negligible. Some will like the fact that one is f2.8 all the way. Some will like the fast af, manual twist zoom and shot time of the other. That's it. Some like their steak cooked rare, others like it ruined. That's the upshot of having imagination and being capable of forming preferences.

If you those two don't pack it in they'll be the only ones on this thread because everyone else will have found something better to do.

It's a very sharp image considering that I have been using the digital zoom, which I already told you.

Thank you, we are starting to see what the HS50 can do! For ISO 800 and 3200 I think the shots are awsome.

Yes i took that shot and thought for ISO 800 it's very good. So I thought i'd better post it here for those saying this camera is no good at 400 never mind 800!

Fuji HS50 EXR using its manual zoom ring in video
In reply to jcmarfilph, Mar 16, 2013

I would like to find someone who has the HS50 EXR camera on a tripod and using a video fluid head, I would very much like to find out if you are able to pull zoom with it smoothly from one end to the other? That is, turn the zoom ring from 24mm to 1000mm and back while you are recording video. Someone on You Tube reported from the U.K. that the lens is all plastic and there is immense friction in turning the telescoping zoom lens by the manual zoom ring. He said that he simply cannot see this lens being able to be used in video mode while trying to zoom into and out of the subject.

In that case, the SL1000 with its 50x servo zoom and amazing 24mm to 1200mm reach that can be controlled via a servo switch on 2 different locations (on the lens and also on the topside of the camera) might be a better alternative for Fujifilm video shooters who want to zoom into and out of the subject while in the middle of a take. Of course, the lens quality with a 50X Finepix is not going to be any better then the lens quality with a 42x Finepix would be, it's just you should be able to operate the zoom lever much easier than the manual ring.

If it's anything like the lens on the HS30 I had, it would be useless for video. I think the HS series lenses are only for going from wide to tele in one go, trying to stop them anywhere in between is a nightmare they are so stiff with very jerky operation.

No, I think you are delusional again, you keep posting that same poor Lion shot from the FZ200, and I keep posting photos showing that that is ONE bad photo you picked out to denounce the FZ200 and make it look worse than it is...

Nope you are. Do you want me to post again your smeary bird shots?

Anyone can take crappy shots with any camera. If you want to argue whether HIS shots are bad then fine. He supplied them. But for the lion shot, it's bogus to provide his side of the debate with lousy pics, claim that they are typical, and declare yourself the winner. I could find rotten shots taken with any camera, but that proves nothing - unless I try to represent them as the camera's best just to win an argument. Or are you claiming that awful lion photo is the best the Panny can do? You know better.

It's called intellectual dishonesty.

You did not get the point either. These bunch of fools are always saying how bad is the HS camera and that its IQ is nowhere near the FZ quality. They are dead wrong, I will post that lion and tons of horrible shots from FZ to prove that FZ is no different than the HS that they are degrading. Regardless if it has a constant mushy lens or not.

-=[ Joms ]=-

I hadn't realized the lion photo was posted here further up the thread. I would agree, it's awful.  Still it's nowhere near the best the camera can do, obviously wasn't well taken, and shouldn't be held up as a real example.

Everyone should post the shots they think makes their point about their own camera. That's the only way to really debate it. When someone posts shots and says 'these from my camera are good' they are fair game for picking apart.

We should actually be comparing cameras of equivalent long range focal lengths- that is, this should be about Fuji HS50 vs Canon HX50 vs Nikon P510/520 vs Sony HX300. The Panny and X-S1 shouldn't be considered in the same category.

It's up to each one to determine if there is enough 24x zoom and the ability to TC or 40x to 50x zoom is a must.
As I see it outweighs the strength of aperture f/2.8 more than well the shorter zoom.
