Fantastic bridge camera at a ridiculously cheap price, been waiting for a couple weeks to get this 12 still in stock as i write so be quick as this wont last for long.

Use code P832A4V3T8MES for an extra 10% off.

Happy Snapping.

Use code P10FEB15 instead for 15% off. Camera is then £168.30

I wouldn't say this is "ridiculously cheap" I would pay more and a real entry level Nikon/Cannon DSLR. Not voting, as I don't know if this is a deal for what it is.

Can I just ask, I see its got a 30x optical zoom and presume that works the same as a compact. But how does the manual barrel zoom works?.

I have the HS10 and it's great. Don't want a DSLR as just wanted a camera for more casual stuff.

The zoom is entirely manual. i.e. it's not like a compact where you use a button to zoom in / out...the zoom works by rotating the barrel with your hand...wasn't too keen on the idea at first, but love it now. What looks like the zoom button on the front is actually the on / off switch.

As for Fuji refurbs, bought one for my daughter and apart from the box being 'Fuji Refurb' branded, it's identical to a brand new one and has the same 12 month guarantee. Should say Refurb in the title though.

I'm not sure if this is what you are asking. The zoom is operated mechanically only, by a ring around the lens (same as a SLR). The manual focus ring is electronic, which means you physically turn the ring but the lens moves through an electric motor.

The enormous lens range is really the attractive feature of this camera. If you never blow up your pictures beyond 10x8, I don't think you'll see much difference to a DSLR.

If anyone wants this, use code P10FEB15 instead, and get it for £168.30 ;)

The HS10 refurb has been in stock for a while but the hs20 has a few key improvements and worth paying the extra for. What swung it for me was the ability to use a remote shutter release.

The one thing missing from the HS20 is the ability to shoot at 1000 fps (albeit at really low res). Maybe a slight novelty, but it is great :)

Thank you, both of you.

Great price.

Bought this camera for a tour of the Scottish highlands and Skye in August last year!! Got some great shots, especially with the zoom, printed on A3 no problem at all, even managed to sell some of my A3 prints at a local fair!!! I paid £175 for it as a refurb, brilliant camera for the price, can't fault it in Any way!

I got one of these just before christmas and used a code off this site to get it for £189 delivered which I thought was a bloody good deal. The image quality is fantastic, the EXR modes are very clever and pretty useful. The manual zoom is better than a motorized one, you have much more control, and it is easy to use the manual settings if you know what to do with them.
To the naysayers earlier no it isnt a DSLR, but a 2nd hand canon is £250 upwards on ebay with no guarantees, for a camera with fewer MP, the kit lens isnt as good and certainly cant do the zoom/macro like the fuji can (it would cost you about 1k for lenses that would do that) much poorer low light performance and a much lower number of FPS.
BTW tesco are selling these at £370 (not refurbed) so this is well under half price for what looks like a brand new camera when it arrives.

BTW I just tried the P10FEB15 code and it is no longer valid

Likewise got the HS10, at what I thought was a great price. Refurb or not its a great price. The majority of return will be from people who probably dont read the instructions and are getting poor results.

If I didnt have the HS10, I would get this.
