The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR's features and performance are well beyond those of your average point-and-shoot megazoom, making it a fine choice for enthusiasts and as a family camera.

The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR is a big camera with an impressive 42x zoom lens and plenty of controls, but its images don't hold up in low light.

Although it’s far from the smallest and lightest superzoom bridge camera available, at its current price it’s certainly one of the best on the market.

The Fuji FinePix HS50 EXR boasts a powerful zoom lens with a mechanical focusing ring. It's a well-designed bridge camera offering SLR-style handling and is generally pleasant to use. It's just a shame that the EVF is so poor and that image quality isn't up to the usual Fujifilm standards.

For anybody looking for a high-zoom bridge camera with plenty of bang for your back, the Fuji HS50 EXR is an excellent option. Although it has a shorter zoom range than the Canon SX50 (which boasts a 50x optical zoom lens), the 24-1,000mm range should be more than enough for most users.
