Read the full Fujifilm HS20 EXR review

On paper the HS20 looks to be an attractive proposition. The 30x zoom certainly appeals, as does the range of advanced shooting modes. However, it's important to bear in mind that despite its DSLR styling and dimensions the HS20 is essentially an advanced compact and delivers image quality to match. If all-in-one convenience tops your priorities then the HS20 certainly ticks a lot of boxes and is well worth a look. If, however, image quality is equally or more important then you might want to consider eschewing the 30x zoom and try out some entry-level DSLRs or perhaps even a rangefinder style compact system camera instead.

This is in no way an Advanced Compact. Apertures are better, sensors are healthier in size and density, Image Quality is superior, and more, on an Advanced Compact, (Canon S95, Canon G12, Olympus XZ-1, Panasonic LX5, Samsung EX1 and more besides), than on this Superzoom.
