Fujifilm FinePix HS10

The Good Great feature set; excellent dSLR-like controls.

The Bad Poor photo quality above ISO 400; mixed shooting performance.

The Bottom Line Fujifilm's FinePix HS10 has the look, feel, and controls of a dSLR, with the photos and shooting performance of a common point-and-shoot.

Review

Fujifilm FinePix HS10

The Fujifilm FinePix HS10 looks like the ultimate bridge camera, given its wide-angle lens with a manual 30x zoom; large tilting LCD and an electronic viewfinder; direct controls for all major settings; and shooting modes that take you from fully automatic to fully manual. The combination makes the HS10 a good all-in-one fixed-lens solution. But there are definitely compromises to be made, and this camera's price tag doesn't make them any easier to swallow.

If you're expecting photo quality on par with a digital SLR--even an entry-level one--you're not going to get that here. The same goes for shooting performance. However, those who understand its limitations and don't mind doing some post-shoot editing will likely be pleased with all that the HS10 has to offer.
