From cutting-edge digital SLR pro-level models to fashion-conscious point-and-shoot compacts, there's a Fujifilm FinePix digital camera to satisfy every kind of photographer. The HS50EXR features a high-quality EXR CMOS II sensor and a 58mm Fujinon lens with 42x optical zoom, resulting in stunning images, even in high-speed or low-light shooting situations.
From the Manufacturer:
Fujinon optical 42x manual zoom lens (24 - 1,000mm 35mm equivalent) effectively combines aspherical lenses, ED lens, and integrated lenses to achieve a bright aperture rating of f/2.8 - 5.6, and image stabilization. Super Macro mode allows close-up shooting from as near as 1cm and the manual barrel zoom ensures speedy, intuitive control of the camera.
84x Intelligent Digital Zoom
Controlled by the convenient Function (Fn) button, the Intelligent Digital Zoom offers an astonishing 84x magnification power, the equivalent of a 2000mm** focal length. In addition to magnifying the image, the EXR sensor intelligently minimizes noise in flat areas and sharpens and enhances contrast in edge areas and to create natural clarity and crispness even at super-telephoto magnification. Intelligent Digital Zoom also functions in EXR AUTO mode, to guarantee you exceptional shots with minimal effort.
Intelligent Hybrid AF: world's fastest AF (0.05sec.)
The clever hybrid autofocus system can choose between Phase Detection AF or switch to Contrast AF in low light to ensure the optimal focus system is used-dependent on the shooting conditions.
Beautiful hand-held night scenes
Frames captured with high-speed continuous shooting at high sensitivity are overlapped to create a single optimum image, keeping noise to an absolute minimum. Image blur is minimized, even when camera is hand-held.
Full HD Movie 1080p/60fps with continuous phase detection AF
Phase detection autofocus is active during movie recording for faster focus response.
Face-tracking autofocus is available during shooting, allowing focus to track a selected face throughout recording and ensuring that you never lose sight of your subject.
3.0-inch Vari-Angle LCD screen
And if you are trying to take tricky, close to the ground, macro flower shots or want to capture the band on the main stage above the heads of the crowd, you can switch to the very useful 3.0-inch Vari-Angle LCD screen. Again boasting a detailed 920K-dot, the LCD screen can fold out and flip around so you can see what you are taking - no matter what the angle you're trying to shoot at.
Electronic Viewfinder with Eye Sensor
The FinePix HS50EXR boasts a high-resolution (920K-dot) electronic viewfinder equipped with an eye sensor, making it easier to frame subjects and check focus in bright daylight conditions. The bright EVF accommodates a traditional shooting style, making it easy to steady the camera, even when shooting with the 42x zoom fully extended.
A selection of 8 special filters lets you create distinctive photo effects. Filter effects can be verified on the LCD monitor to ensure you get exactly the results you're shooting for.
