    FinePix HS10 looks like it could be a great camera

    Saw this camera was announced today.

    I was on the fence with the Canon SX20 and the Pany FZ-35. But I'm climbing down off the fence and waiting for some real reviews on this camera. The press release makes it sound like everything I've been waiting for but press releases are written to sell/promote cameras so I'll wait and see if this guy really delivers.

    I'm also curious how this camera will perform. I'm happy with the S6500FD and this look like a great camera to replace it (though at $500 it's not as cheap as the S6500FD).

    The NikonP100 and Olympus SP-800UZ also look impressive.

    See link for an early review here.

    Here is a chart of the three new cameras:



    Another cool new feature on the Fuji:

    Motion remover mode
    To remove moving subjects from your shots, this mode captures 5 images of a scene in quick succession; the five images are then analysed and combined in-camera to produce a single image where anything moving in the scene has magically disappeared. Never before has capturing postcard-quality shots of tourist traps without the tourists been so easy.

    Agreed. I'll be keeping an eye on this one too. It really brings a lot to the table as far as features, I just hope the quality is there too.

    Yeah, I'm really liking this camera. It's a great successor to the S6000/S9000 lines, lines that used AA batteries.

    The one thing that I really dislike is the EVF. Granted, it doesn't look like you can do manual focus anymore aside from physically moving the camera, but 200k pixels is way too grainy.

    If this thing had a high resolution EVF, was water resistant, and had a gps chip for geotagging, I'd definitely order one of the first off the production line. I may still get one anyway to replace my S9000.

    Paul and Eugene-

    Well, the Fuji HS-10 is slated to reach dealer's shelves in mid April. Are you still interested in the HS-10?

    I have continued to follow it closely. I am hoping for a camera of the same stature and capability as my S-6000. I have pre-ordered one.

    Manual focus might still be available through the menus I guess, tough I don't think it's bad as I've never liked the focus ring on the fuji.

    It's got a manual focus ring.
