Lens Shift Image Stabilization; Film Simulation and Advanced Filters
The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR Digital Camera features a 16 megapixel 1/2" EXR CMOS II sensor and an EXR Processor II image processor to provide high quality imagery and performance throughout the camera system. The combination of these two technologies enables a high sensitivity to ISO 12800, fast continuous shooting up to 11fps, and the integration of EXR Auto to automatically provide optimum shooting settings depending on the scene in which you are photographing. The image sensor also incorporates phase-detection pixels into its design to enable Intelligent Hybrid AF, which provides quick and accurate focusing capabilities through the use of both contrast- and phase-detection methods of acquiring focus. Phase-detection AF also benefits the Full HD 1920 x 1080p video capabilities by offering full-time continuous AF with face tracking while recording movies.
Where the HS50EXR truly separates itself is through the inclusion of a 42x optical manual zoom lens, which gives a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-1000mm. This super telephoto lens is greatly benefited through the inclusion of lens-shift type image stabilization, which helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake that can become increasingly noticeable at longer zoom lengths.

Like the rest of the Fuji HS series cameras you have to be willing to learn to use its feature set to get the most out of the camera but if you do these can do almost anything a DSLR can do with near DSLR quality pictures for less than the cost of one good quality DSLR lens that has far less reach than my Fuji. I own three of these (HS20, HS25, and the HS50) each one better than the previous version. This is an awesome camera, not quite DSLR quality but pretty close especially considering how much more I'd have to pay in lenses and extra accessories to get even close to the amazing versatility I get with this camera without ever having to change the lens or add a single accessory. But if I want to I can add accessories and do so easily with no need for special adaptors I just screw filters, conversion lenses, etc on to the front of my manual zoom lens. And because it is manual zoom with no extra wear and tear on the motor of a motorized zoom lens. I call mine a poor man's DSLR :)...
I received this for my birthday. My wife ordered it on Amazon through this Sunset Electronics. When I opened the box, I set out to take photos. I've owned 5 FujiFilm cameras in my lifetime so I'm very happy with the brand.
After taking photos of a family, I noticed in the editing process that there was a sunspot in the middle of some photos. I took a closer look at the camera and there's a tiny crack in the middle of the lens. So small I didn't notice right away. When you open a factory sealed camera... you don't really expect to see a cracked lens... right?
So, although my wife bought this at the end of January and here it was April, I thought I'd contact Sunset Electronics because I was sure they'd do the right thing and replace the camera.
They first said it was out of the allotted time for returning. Then they accused me of trying to rip them off... insinuating that I must have damaged the camera and now I want them to pay for it. Then they said...
The camera is proving to be exciting to learn and offers excellent opportunities in photography adventures. The only item that needs to be changed in the entire package is the camera case. The camera case is an excellent case and is good for carrying the camera but not much else. You don't buy this many lenses, battery charger, etc., and then leave them behind. I would recommend including a case big enough to package the camera and all the lenses and accessories.
