Love my HS10
fab fun
The 'last 7 pictures you wish you had taken' feature is great - 1/2 press the button and when you see what it is you want to snap press it all the way down and it stores the last 7 [or the last 3 and the next 4 etc - you decide]

Super slow mo video too - and HD video

fab fun

Good find, for those who like new. To save a bit and if you don't mind refurbs you can get a HS10 with free case for £234 delivered direct from Fuji. http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/fuji-finepix-hs10-10mp-30x-optical-/767503/#post9662367.

I'm tempted to buy one, may get me some slack if I get rid of a netbook I don't use.

I can only see refurb with case for 259.97 or 238.98 without case with code P258BTCC467.
Do you have another code which brings it down to your price?

This would be my dream camera if Fuji had paid a little less attention to gimmicks and had improved the picture quality and viewfinder/LCD instead.

s2000hd has nearly the same specs except 720 video faster frames per second 13fps Your text here
only 15x zoom but aperature is nearly the same if you cannot afford the hs10 still nice find

Almost wish I'd got one of these instead of my dslr. Great price and great piece of kit.

Great on paper but when you start comparing your DSLR photos with the HS10, you'd see the difference
DSLR photos are much better quality especially at low ISO.

Again, do not just go by specs when you choose a camera. The HS10 will deliver far superior photo quality over the S2000.

Code P0109HS bring the price for the refurbished HS10 + free case to £234.98 at the Fuji shop.
I bought one from them recently and like many others have said I would defy anyone to tell the difference between it and a new camera.
For information - anyone with one of these cameras who would like a full written manual should request one from Fuji Customer Services they supplied one to me free of charge.

Well they ought to be considering how much more expensive a DSLR with a lens to match this range would be.

Just noticed I missed half of stewby's comment.
I was referring to the first part "Almost wish I'd got one of these instead of my dslr."
Your DSLR will deliver better quality. Yes, the cost will be higher for an equivalent lens range, so will the weight and size increase.
#12
Ah. Most of them don't do video either from what I've seen at the low price end anyway.

Still pondering where to throw my money though, this is very tempting but so are many others

Codes don't seem to work on fuji site atm either. :(

its a good camera if you go into the settings but what a lot of out of focus pics...I have the fuji s8000, fuji 5700 and a cannon 1000d which I LOVE.....this HS10...not cutting the mustard for me! the pics that the 30x zoom takes look no different from my 18X zoom on the s8000.
#14
It's down at £255.00 at the moment. Amazing deal. I love my HS10.
#15
I have a Fuji Finepix S9600 which I've been highly delighted with so far. Would I notice a significant difference upgrading to this model?
#16
I've had this and then upgraded to a S200EXR now on a DSLR - don't think you notice a lot of difference in quality by going up the Fuji chain.

saying that, I would still upgrade if I had the money :)

Many thanks. I think I might just sit tight with my S9600 and move up to a DSLR (when the right deal comes along, of course!).

At £268 I'd say buy the £238 Fuji Refurb and put the price difference toward an additional £49.50 2 year super warranty; but at £255 this is a pretty good deal.
#19
Bought HS10 around 6 months ago and the quality is great, even when my son/daughter use it on auto setting the quality is fantastic. Sure id say a DSLR is better, but why would I want to pay double the price?
For the price its a fantastice deal, unless one of you DSLR fanboi's can price up a cemera with a 30x lense for the same price..... diddn't think so

Review from Which?

If you're keen to exploit a super-zoom lens, but don't fancy the bulk and expense of a DSLR and tele zoom, then the 10Mp Fujifilm FinePix HS10 may be just the camera for you - it only narrowly misses out on our Best Buy mark.
All in the lens

The HS10 has every manual control at its disposal that you'd expect to find on a DSLR. The only missing feature is being able to change lenses. However, Fujifilm boasts that the HS10 has such a good lens that you'll be glad you can't change it.

What's outstanding about the HS10's lens is that it provides a mammoth 30x optical zoom, starting at a wide 24mm and protruding to an up-close 720mm. The mighty lens adds to the weight of the camera - a chunky 790g.

The 24mm wide angle offers huge potential for capturing landscape shots and indoor photos, as you won't have to stand far back to fit everything in.

Interestingly, the zoom is controlled manually by twisting the barrel of the lens rather than by the electronic lever or toggle found on most digital cameras.

The control of this zoom does feel more like that on a DSLR lens, and it provides a satisfying, tactile experience. It also gives the battery a generous rest, as the use of motorised zooms on compact digital cameras can drain a battery quite quickly.

There's also a manual focus ring on the lens, giving it a further DSLR feel.
Superb manual controls

In terms of picture quality, the HS10 delivers beautifully. The colour reproduction is superb, even when trusted to the automatic settings, and delving into the manual control options reaps even richer rewards.

By means of manual control, the camera offers full exposure management, as well as shutter speed and aperture priority modes.

The dials on the top of the camera are tilted towards the user, which makes them that little bit easier to read. There are a number of buttons running down the left-hand side of the LCD that bring up the white balance control and the ISO settings, for example.

By holding down one of these buttons an onscreen menu pops up - to change the settings you need to hold down the button and then skip through the options using the directional buttons.

It might sound tricky, but this operation gives quick and easy access to features without having to open up a menu, change the setting, and then close again.

You can adjust the ISO level as high as 6,400, making the HS10 extremely sensitive in low light. However, pushing the ISO this high will introduce a lot of graininess into your shots.

The HS10's low-light performance is generally excellent for a camera of this class. With an image sensor far smaller than those you'll find within a DSLR, the HS10 can't capture perfectly noise-free low-light photos, but it handles itself well at lower ISO settings, retaining plenty of detail.

The HS10 has a built-in, pop-up flash to help in low light, but also has a hot shoe to attach an external flash.

The camera has a neat panoramic mode that allows you to sweep the camera vertically or horizontally and it stitches the images together to make a single picture.

Like most high-end compacts, the HS10 can shoot either Jpeg or RAW files. RAW files will take up more of the camera's SD or SDHC memory card's space, but they can be more easily manipulated with photo editing software.
1080p full-HD video

The HS10 is able to capture full-HD video at 1080p resolution. There are few bridge cameras around capable of full-HD video and our testers were impressed with the sharpness of the HS10's footage.

The HS10 can't quite match up to the video quality you'll get with a proper HD camcorder, but it's generally an impressive video-recording device. Being able to zoom and focus the lens manually while recording offers a degree of control unmatched by non-DSLR cameras.

The camera has a three-inch LCD screen, which can be pulled away from the camera and tilted horizontally. This is handy when you're holding the camera above your head, for example.

The screen itself is sharp and colourful, and it's pleasant to view when you're scrolling through your shots.

Deleting pictures on the camera can be fiddly as, once you've removed one, you get taken back to the most recent shot, and so to delete two consecutive older shots you have to scroll though your snaps all over again.

As well as the LCD screen, there's an electronic viewfinder with a sensor so it switches on only when the camera's positioned up against the eye.

When the viewfinder is on, the LCD switches off - saving power and reducing the light that's bounced back in your face when you're trying to compose a shot.

The viewfinder lacks sharpness at times, however, and it can be frustrating to use in low light when the viewfinder display becomes grainy.

Pros: Handy, quick menu system, good picture quality, manual control over lens

Cons: Deleting images on the camera is fiddly, viewfinder can be grainy in low light
