I am shooting Canon 5D and bought this camera for my girlfriend as a Christmas gift because of the "great reviews" I read about it. We tested it for the first time at a New Years Party in a very well lit house. All the pictures, no matter what mode we took them in, came out as if someone ran a "painting" effect on them in Photoshop. We took about 30 minutes of video that night and honestly, there isn't a full 1 single minute of it with locked-in focus. Kid you not, the focus on this thing is ...

+ Very sharp tele photos at f 7,1. (Sharp tele lenses are very expensive) + Use it with 800 ISO, 8MP (no more) and sociore 1,8x converter.Nice birds shootings   possible.Try it. + very nice colors, high contrast and very good sharpness (besides wide angle in the corners) + AA batteries - Video lanscapes are 'jumping' sometimes, when moving bridge HS20 too quickly.

Nice, fun camera, great zoom but weighs a ton. Not the greatest low natural light or flash.

Is capable but some quirks with IQ and poor IS at tele keeping it down from being great. Problems: None so far, working great.

My background is I like easy to use cameras but need a decent zoom for wildlife photos etc on long haul holidays. My existing camera was a fuji S1000 which has done reasonably well, but I was interested in the HS20 for 3 main reasons: 1. The increase in zoom from 12x to 30x 2. The EXR dynamic range mode for high contrast shots eg taking a picture of a bird/monkey in a tree in a backlit situation. 3. The use of AA batteries, as on some out of the way trips recharging is problematical I was ...

First of all I have to say that I'm not a photographer, not even an amateur one. I'm just a guy (an electric engineer) who lives abroad and who likes to make photos about his Friends doing parties, playing billiard, hiking, etc... Mostly there are people on my pictures. I have not so high expectations from a camera, I used happily a Canon Powershot SX100 compact for the last 3 years. I can only compare the HS20 with this compact. And the HS20 still fails for me. :-( When I saw this camera ...

First off I wanna say if your looking for the perfect camera.....GOOD LUCK! No Camera is perfect....all have their strong and weak points $200 to $2000+. Too many people expect the quality of a High End DSLR out of a $300 Prosumer Camera. It's probably never gonna happen so we hafta be realistic! This lil Guy has some excellent features for various types of photography. You don't hafta be a expert to get awesome pics with it. Can be used in full auto to full manual modes for Beginner to Pro. ...
