You certainly could if your budget was up to it. I can see why you might want to. However, it is an extra £30, that is more than 30% extra for what I imagine will be very minor tweaks.

Could have a game of spot-the-difference here.

Took up your challenge..

Quite surprised, correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like the upgraded one has halved in screen resolution, lost panorama mode, gained 3g of weight and increased in size by 1mm in two directions?

Brilliant work pete!
It seems you are right they seem to have downgraded the new model!
Lol

How does the S4000 compare to the HS10?

Known issues with firmware

One big difference is the sensor. HS10/20/30 use a cmos sensor, rather than ccd. It is a sensor which is much better in low light. The same type of sensor as is found in DSLR. Though it is smaller in HS series than in dslr so picture quality/light sensitivity, while much better than cheaper compact/bridge cameras, is not going to match dslr.

Mrtightcheeks, what firmware issue? Why so many positive reviews on Amazon?

This could make these great refurbished units, if the only fault was firmware, which has been updated.

Despite my being the OP, I'd probably buy a second hand HS10 over the S4000, if I could get it for same money, as it would suit me better. But for those who want warranty/nearly new unit and a good camera I still reckon this is a good deal.

If you can't stretch to the HS10 then I think you'd be better buying an F300EXR or similar and saving some money; but if you absolutely must have 30x zoom then this is certainly the cheapest available.

DGA, the exr series do not have the same sensor throughout. Some have Super CCD while others have CMOS. Given the choice, you definitely want CMOS. Better light sensitivity means better low light shots and faster shutter speeds (less motion blur) in average light levels.

Thanks.



Snapsort is good, but this is extremely misleading on this occasion. The different type of sensor makes a huge difference. I have not used S4000, but regularly use S1600, S1850, S2500HD, HS10, HS20EXR & HS30EXR through work and stuff. Very big difference in versatility and image quality between HS range and others, but they are twice the price.

Bought it today for £89.99 with code , thanks
