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?.

Well it's refurb so not that cheap..

Yes its a refurb but does come with a full 12 month warranty Info Here

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.

best site if you dont know- learn - as this site can help teach you about cameras and what they do
experts here
buy as they wont last

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.

Been waiting for this to be back in stock - and with a 15% discount - WOOT!

Thanks!

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.

I just used the code and it worked for me thst was 3 mins ago, been waiting for this camera to comeback in stock for a few weekend to great to get the £30 discount on it too

Yep...code worked for me too! Very happy! Will be able to take lots of nice pics in Australia next month now! :0)

Been debating whether to get this, just decided to go for it and now OOS

Shouldn't have posted the 15% code X)

It's been unexpired, however it's "Availability: Out of stock" again :-(

Great price voted hot !!!

Unfortunately i bought a refurb Fuji before xmas but ended up returning it as the image quality was less then impressive ( more than likely a fault on that particular camera nothing more) i ended up buying a Nikon bridge camera and love it.

I won't be buying fuji again, my camera has developed a problem with the LCD, it was brand new and not a refurb 2 years ago and have hardly used it. They have loads of refurbs, which isn't a good sign as they have all been returned.

All gone within 10 minutes!
Is there anyway of getting alert emails when they come into stock? Or is it luck?

runs on AA batteries?

The code itself is a great find, you can apply it and get a refurbished
X10 for £344 which is very tempting, if only they'd fix the x10 blooming
issue.

Yup, 4 x AA batteries

Chews through standard alkaline ones though...even the hi power ones in a few hours. I bought some 2900mA NiMh ones from 7dayshop and they last for ages.

I think the HS30 has a li-ion battery for those AA haters out there - just a bit more pricey as it's a new model;)

So you think this, with it's tiny sensor will have better low light performance than a Dslr? I would imagine this is pretty capable outside but pants inside compared with a Dslr. It will almost certainly focus slower too. Good deal though.

It's not a DSLR, but in my opinion, it is a quality compact bridge point and shoot that's flexible for all occasion. Go ahead and give it a try, and you'll love it for the IQ, but for those who is looking to use this for video shoot will be disappointed though (it's ok provided you do not attempt to zoom in/out during video mode)

Why no zooming? Noise or does it not focus well? I'm sorry to hear this as I like to use the video on my Panasonic FZ35 but want more zoom...

Zoom works fine for me whilst videoing...you do get the noise of the barrel moving though that's unsurprising. I suppose it can sometimes make the camera wobble a bit, but that's just down to practice.

mine turned up today looks brand new thanks OP
