Re: HS20 Firmware - Beware Slow Cooking

If Fuji are being reckless in raising the temperature warning threshold to higher than they originally considered to be safe, then it is possible owners will not know Fuji were being reclkess for quite some time.

Possibly, AFTER the warranty has expired, HS20's will fail through a prolonged period of slow 'cooking '.

There was actually a recent post here on dpreview from an HS10 owner whose camera failed after showing the temperature warning. It was just out of warranty. One example certainly doesn't establish a trend; however, if other instances of that nature begin to occur, it might not bode well for the HS20.
