Lens x Finder - Experience the Extreme Shooting Sensation
The combination of versatile & functional Fujinon Lens and a bright viewfinder give a sensational shooting experience.
24-720mm Fujinon 30x Optical Zoom and Super Macro ModeThe bright, high-precision Fujinon lens boasts a maximum aperture of f/2.8 and an optical zoom range from wide-angle 24mm to 30x telephoto, while a remarkable 1cm Super Macro Mode opens up creative opportunities right under your eyes. Producing exceptional resolution across the image plane, from the center to the edges, this lens also delivers brilliant Fujinon optical quality across the entire zoom range.
Manual barrel zoomThe wide-angle 24mm to 30x telephoto optical zoom range is controlled by twisting the lens barrel, giving you speedy, intuitive control over magnification power.
60x Intelligent Digital ZoomControlled by the convenient Function (Fn) button, the Intelligent Digital Zoom offers an astonishing 60x magnification power, the equivalent of a 1440mm focal length. In addition to magnifying the image, the EXR sensor intelligently minimizes noise in flat areas and sharpens and enhances contrast in edge areas and to create natural clarity and crispness even at super-telephoto magnification. Intelligent Digital Zoom also functions in EXR AUTO mode, to guarantee you exceptional shots with minimal effort.
1cm Super MacroAt a distance of just 1cm, macro photography using the FinePix HS30EXR allows you to capture all the exquisite detail of your subject from really close up.
Fujinon LensIncorporating 15 elements in 11 groups, including 3 aspherical and one ED lens, all elements in the high-quality Fujinon 30x zoom lens have been treated with Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating) to reduce ghosting, flare, and purple fringe. This high-performance lens produces outstanding resolution with very little color blurring or distortion, resulting in images with superb clarity and color fidelity.
3 Aspherical Lenses - For Rich Resolution and a Compact FormBy using 3 high-performance aspherical lenses, the FinePix HS30EXR delivers sharp image quality with rich resolution. These lenses also contribute to a more compact overall lens configuration.
ED Lens - Removing All Color Fringing Even at High MagnificationOne ED lens has been employed for their low dispersion and effective reduction of chromatic aberrations. By preventing color fringing and reducing contrast, the FinePix HS30EXR lens captures images with superb accuracy across the zoom range from wide angle to telephoto.
Super EBC - Aiming for High Quality ImagesAll the lens elements used in the FinePix HS30EXR have been treated with multilayer Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating), the same process used for Fujinon broadcasting video lenses and large-format camera lenses acclaimed by professionals. Reducing ghosting and lens flare, the treatment promises clear image quality.
Image Stabilization (CMOS Shift + High ISO)Long telephoto shots usually suffer from camera shake and subject movement which can ruin photos by producing blurred results. The FinePix HS30EXR's highly effective CMOS-shift and high ISO image stabilization ensures that your shots stay extra-crisp and clear, even at the full 30x zoom.
Advanced Anti BlurIn EXR AUTO mode, Advanced Anti Blur selects optimum sensitivity and harnesses responsiveness of the BSI EXR CMOS sensor, using Multi Frame technology to layer four consecutive frames shot at high speed into a single, sharp, blur-free image with remarkably low noise, even at telephoto zoom settings.
Clear, High-Resolution Fujinon Electronic View FinderEngineered by Fujinon, the bright, incredibly sharp electronic viewfinder boasts enhanced resolution of 920,000 dots and an expanded viewing angle of 22 degrees. Perfect for tracking moving subjects in bright outdoor light, the viewfinder is equipped with an "Eye Sensor" that automatically switches the view from the LCD screen when you hold the camera up to your eye.
Professional Quality Accomplished by the Perfect Combination
A perfect fusion of Fujinon lens, 1/2-inch BSI EXR CMOS sensor and EXR Processor takes your picture to the next dimension.
16-Megapixel BSI EXR CMOS SensorThe 1/2-inch BSI (Back Side Illuminated) EXR CMOS sensor combines an impressive 16 megapixels of high-resolution image quality with exceptionally responsive performance. Fujifilm's proprietary pixel and color filter arrays enhance both vertical and horizontal resolution, the key to 3-way capture technology that ensures the best image quality for every scene. Dynamic range has been expanded to 1600%, achieving a new level of imaging performance. The BSI structure results in improved light reception for a significant boost in sensitivity, with available settings up to ISO 12800 for S size. An optimized signal read-out configuration significantly reduces in-sensor noise, achieving a further significant reduction in signal-to-noise ratio. The CMOS format also achieves higher readout speeds and faster image processing, enabling 8fps high-speed continuous shooting at full 16-megapixel resolution.
Stunning Stills in Low Light30% less noise at ISO3200! The enhanced performance of the new EXR CMOS sensor lets you shoot dark scenes at high ISO sensitivity and capture them brighter, clearer and with less noise than ever before.
EXR AUTOWith the addition of Motion Detection, Intelligent Scene Recognition technology in EXR Auto mode automatically recognizes and optimizes white balance, focus, exposure and other settings for a total of 103 shooting patterns. In addition to recognizing the shape and color of scenes, the camera also calculates available light and determines whether a person is present, giving you exceptional photos in almost every conceivable situation.
Full 1080p HD MoviesWith the ability to shoot full HD video (1920 x 1080p; 30fps/H.264 High Profile) with impressive stereo sound, the FinePix HS30EXR doubles as a high-performance video camera. Improved continuous auto focus is enhanced by facial recognition, to ensure the people in your movies are in focus and properly exposed. Movie scene recognition optimizes settings to take the guesswork out of movie making. The H.264 (MOV) file format combines high quality video with a small file size, for effortless editing on a PC.
EXR ProcessorFeaturing Dual CPUs, an EXR Core, and a reconfigurable processor, the EXR Processor delivers outstanding power and speed, performance that comes into its own in Full HD Movies, high-speed continuous shooting, speedy auto focus and Intelligent Scene Recognition. Start-up is quicker, focusing is faster, and writing time after burst shooting has been significantly reduced.

Great flexible use camera
By Kansas Cowboy
from Topeka, KS
General photography. Anything from portraits to wildlife. Have used several scene settings - all work great and fairly straightforward. Anti-shake works well, particularly when zooming. Shooting in low light is fantastic. Rarely use flash with decent ambient light.Thought about DSLR, but stuck with a bridge camera to avoid multiple lens. Glad I did because the value per dollar for this camera is outstanding.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great service on shipping time.Handling of the paper work.
By Vacation Memories
from Hollandale, MN
I took over 1000 photos during the first 2 weeks of owning this camera. It is amazing how responsive it is and how clear the photos are of up close items like flowers or little lizzards and how clear the photos are of landscapes like sunsets and mountains. The 30x zoom is so wonderful. The only drawback for this camera is the weight is a bit heavy by the time you carry it all day. But, that is a small price to pay for wonderful photos!

THIS IS A WINNER!!! You cannot go wrong.
from Memphis, TN
Bravo! to Fuji Film for this GREAT compact all in one digital-film camera with exceptional features that are ez to understand even for a novice. I am an intermediate photographer that wanted a lightweight cam with exceptional features. This camera even has filters in it memory bank for you to use in your photographic situation. I am thankful that I no longer have to carry around several lenses and cases and all the other gadgets that I would normally carry, all I take to a photoshoot is my tripod and this BEAUTIFUL camera. My last camera was the HS20 and I decided to go with the newer model that has some new features which include the filters and the extra smooth barrel movent when focusing at far focal points. If you don't get this camera yor missing out on some exceptional pictures even for the beginer. YOU will get excited about using this camera and find yourself out more exploring all it's great features (which are too may to list here).. Enjoy this as much as I do - and CAN'T wait to see what FUJI does next. BRAVO!!!

A great camera for urban shooting
from Detroit, MI
I shoot in potentially dangerous areas and wanted something compact to take instead of my DSLR and lenses, and this camera fits the bill perfectly. I owned an HS10 and was not happy with the write time but Fuji has really improved that function on this camera. Also, I really enjoy the control I get with the manual zoom. That was the main reason I bought this one, and the ease of use is all gravy for me. I understand that some potential buyers are hesitant because of certain issues inherent in the HS20, and even though I did not own that model, I can say this one is working super. Zoom zoom.
