great camera

I bought the HS30EXR from B&H last week. This camera is an upgrade from my S5000.
The HS30EXR has a good feel, the controls are easy to reach, it starts up fast, the tilting lcd has a crisp image as well as the view finder.
After charging the battery (and it goes fast) I started taking pictures. I am impressed with the quality of the camera as well as the pictures (Fuji has always had a very good eye for color)
I am still in the process of discovering all the features. So far nothing else but great things.
The zoom ---> unbelievable, fantastic. I have made pictures of airplanes approaching for landing (about 0.5 miles away from me) on max zoom (not on a tripod) and the picture is so good that you can easily read the letters on the plane and start counting the number of windows. The image is very sharp.
I made pictures of flowers and again color and sharpness is fantastic.
The 360 degree program works best when on a tripod and the result is great.
Can't wait to take this camera on my next trip to Hawaii.


so far none.
