The FUJIFILM FinePix HS30EXR Digital Camera differs from its brothers and sisters - namely the HS25 - because of its lithium-ion battery and RAW/RAW+JPEG file capture. The benefits here are a long-lasting, rechargeable power source and RAW files for the ultimate in image quality and post-production flexibility. When you consider all the other great features of the HS30EXR, it's not only a budget-friendly option, it's a versatile one.

Of the many other noteworthy aspects of this camera, you'll find the 24-720mm Fujinon 30x optical zoom lens at the top of the list. This lens sports a maximum aperture of f/2.8 and an expansive focal length range that covers everything from 1cm Super Macro shots to extremely long telephoto ones. The impressive 30x optical zoom is enhanced with a 60x Intelligent Digital Zoom option, which offers an (35mm) equivalent of a 1440mm focal length. This Fujinon lens also boasts strong construction with an 11 group / 15 element configuration, Super EBC to reduce ghosting and the like, and more.

The 24mm lens is supported by the CMOS Shift image stabilization and a high ISO range that reaches up to 12800. Helping to produce steady, clean shots is also Fuji's Advanced Anti Blur features, which layers 4 consecutive shots into a single frame. Another not-to-be-overlooked feature is the electronic viewfinder. When you raise your eye to the viewfinder the display automatically switches from the LCD to the EVF, thanks to the "Eye Sensor".

The HS30EXR's LCD monitor is a tilting 3.0" LCD screen with 460,000 dots of resolution. This screen tilts both high and low for expanded flexibility when shooting and when reviewing shots. It also provides other benefits such as vector graphics with flash technology, an updated font display (over past models), high contrast, and then some. To the left of the monitor you'll find the direct shooting command buttons for quickly adjusting the most-used camera settings.

At the heart of the camera you'll find the 16Mp BSI EXR CMOS image sensor and its partner, the EXR processor. Together these two indispensible tools give the camera its umph - allowing for those high-quality RAW images and 1920 x 1080 HD video capture, not to mention fast start-ups and focusing, high-speed continuous shooting, and more. The core of the camera also empowers EXR AUTO mode, which take the guesswork out of shooting, automatically recognizing and optimizing numerous settings for 103 different shooting patterns.

Of course, the HS30EXR gives you the ability to choose your own settings thanks to the manual exposure settings dial (M/A/S/P). This lets you creativity soar, giving you the options you need to capture the shot as you see it. Additional creative modes include the trio of bracketing options, Pro Focus mode and Pro Low-Light mode, Motion Panorama 360, and more!

When you're ready to share what you've shot, the HS30EXR gives you the tools to do just that, with ease. "Built-in social networking" lets you tag photos and videos in-camera, so when you get to your computer your files will automatically upload. FUJIFILM's MyFinePix Studio also gives you ways to stay connected, with automatic search and upload and favorites rank. Photobook Assist, on the other hand, lets you create a photo album right in your camera, allowing you to share your images on the fly. The camera also boasts playback functions, 3D viewing, and 3D printing.

    I received the camera as promised in 5 business days!
    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.

    The HS30EXR looks very solid with many additional buttons not found in other brige cameras. The viewfinder is good, but is a little short and my nose touched screen often. (not big deal actually).
    The manual zoom is useful and works very well. Unfortunately this camera has more then necessary modes and it is confusing. The buttons on left in many modes are locked and useless. It looks like only EXR mode take full advantage of the sensor. The menu settings are tricky to understand from User Manual. Most of advices on forums tell to set camera to M (8MP) size. In most cases it gives better picture quality, but camera is loosing a half of its potential. The pictures almost all the time are a little out of focus or noisy. In some cases by surprise the picture is great at ISO 1600, but it is rather exclusion.
    To be honest, all above is noticeable to experienced users; point and shot users will probably be happy with this camera.
    This camera has big potential; the problem may be in firmware. If Fuji fix processing algorithm HS30 will be very good.

    Comments about Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR Digital Camera (Black):

    The manual could be more user-friendly. I was using a Canon XSi with a 70mm-300mm lens. It was too much weight for me to carry. So I decided to buy the Fuji FinePix HS30EXR for its lightness.

        Great but for traveling any picture you want to take you can just by changing the settings. Simple to figure out low light flash brightness and other settings. Great camera for a great price.

        I own the HS10 and the HS30EXR and I have to admit the image quality on the older HS10 is noticeably better than that of the HS30. The noise on the HS30 is quite noticeable where as on the HS10, it's barely seen.

            I have been away from photography for twenty years building my business, wow have things changed since my SLR days. Likes- Rubberized grip and overall fit and finish of camera, large LCD screen is easy to read, manual framing of picture is quick, and pictures are razor sharp from cornor to cornor.
            Dislikes- Written manual is easy to understand, but could be more educational about features.

            I love this little camera and all it's features. The only thing that I'm not pleased with is the veiw finder is electronic and seems to washout and over expose that is not much of an issue as most pictures are taken and viewed with the large beautiful 3.0 inch screen

            The zoom is wonderful. I really like the panorama feature. I have always been a fan of Fuji because of there saturated Velvia film and there are film simulated settings in which I like.

            Buy now you won't be disappointed.

              This medium size camera works acts and feels like my prefessional Ni---, and Ca--- cameras, it has all the adjustments and fast focus to take great pictures or videos, just add a polarized filter a Bracket, a TTL cord, a Flash, a bounce dome and a video light and you are set.

                Comments about Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR Digital Camera (Black):

                One of the selling features of this camera to me would be the manual settings the camera has over other bridge cameras. Another big selling point for me was the manual focus, and it isn't a manual focus where you select a little area and the camera focuses there, there is an actual focusing ring on the lens body!

                I love photography, but I can't afford a DSLR right now, so this camera was the closest I could get to one; this camera also IS the closest you can get to a DSLR. It has the same manual settings found on DSLR cameras, like Aperture and Shutter priority, Program Auto, and full Manual. It also can take pictures in RAW which is a big plus for anyone wanting a good all-around camera without the price of a professional one.

                The camera itself is not very large, it fits well in your hand and feels smooth. The zooming on the camera is also manual, unlike many other high zoom cameras that are mechanical zoom. I find this to be very useful when you want to be precise and have more speed than mechanical zooms.

                There is one cool little feature this camera has which is an electronic stabilizer; when you turn it on, two lines appear on the screen that help you level your pictures so they are not slanted.

                This camera takes video in 1080p for which the quality is really good. There are two microphones on the front of the camera which pick up audio very well.

                Another nice feature about this camera is how on the left side of the LCD screen there are 5 buttons for quick adjustments to the ISO, metering, focus area, changing from AF single time to AF continuous or MF, and to change the white balance.

                Overall this camera is the perfect camera for anyone who wants all the features of a DSLR camera but doesn't want to pay the price; or for anyone who wants a good camera for everyday use and who wants a little more control over a simple point-and-shoot camera.

                One thing you should not hope for though is the same picture quality from this camera as you would get from a DSLR. This is still considered a point-and-shoot since it uses a small CMOS sensor. DLSR cameras use much larger sensors than these cameras, thus giving you a more exceptional image quality. But the image quality on this camera is not a disappointment, it is very good for what it is and it would satisfy anyone who can over look this difference.

                In times of family parties when the objective and informal photos, or even when a possible weight the more makes the difference, i leave at home the equipment your DSLR camera and use a model bridge, in the case i already used the FUJI HS10, HS20 and now i upgrade with the HS30, which has as strong point the electronic display 30% more than the predecessors

                  I was in need for a camera for my upcoming trip to New Zealand. After a few of weeks of practicing with this camera, I am confident that it will be perfect for me. I love how light and not bulky it is while having a lot of features. I especially like the option for shooting in the dark; perfect for my apartment that doesn't get much of natural light.

                      Easy to use, with a lot of functions amd multi language menu, this camera has everything you need to make incredible photos. A great batery that you can use for more than two days. Face recognition, great flash, simple to use and auto mode that detects the scene for you!

                      The only thing they could improve its zoom. They could put it automatic and improve the range...

                          The versatility and capability of this camera are great -- from shooting wildflowers and butterflies inches or feet away to shooting birds and big game at greater some distance. Expecting to enjoy camera even more after learning more about how to use the many features/options. As the reviewers routinely warn -- ultrazooms are NOT digital SLR's. With appropriate expectations one can really enjoy the camera.
