Hey @f289a0d1988896df1269cd8eb9673c84:disqus , we do not have an image score, because we get scores from a third party, DxOMark, and they do not test many point and shoot cameras.

hi snapsort, why there is no image quality score for this fuji hs30 exr? please add the score..

there is indeed, i have been using it since purchasing a HS30EXR a month ago to replace a S9500

The fujifilm HS20 and HS3o is the same size!
But when comparing the two says the site is less than the HS20.
This data is wrong and others as well.

Finally I've purchased one and I can say that it's EXCELLENT camera just for 500 euros!

Hey @bd4b9bec0559371118dd469b656ca101:disqus , Snapsort uses True Resolution which is based on the cameras sensor size and the not artificially high number that they use to market cameras.

The Megapixal count is 16.0, or 15.9, not 10.6

The camera does not have a flip-out screen.  It's screen can be tilted, but fixed to the back.
Harrypotter (11:08 AM, March 23, 2012)
it is expensive. the Sony equivalent( Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V) pips it at the post for features and is the same price.
Dougsinnott (2:33 PM, March 04, 2012)
Expensive? Not at all, for what you get,and the technology involved.
It's not a "point and shoot" digi-cam,with a 4x zoom,limited features,no viewfinder,so you get what you pay for!
My Pentax KX,with the limited 18-55mm zoom lens cost more  than the probable £400 cost of the HS30,and I think Fuji are to be commended in their work to find the ideal "all-in-one" camera for camera enthusiasists like myself,despite constant sniping by the Canon/Nikon brigade,who think that unless you have a heavy DSLR and a bag of expensive "glass"(their in-word for additional lenses),you can't take worthwhile pictures.
What a load of *****!
I have had many types of cameras,both DSLR,compact,and "bridge",and many times it hard to tell the origin of some of my prints,and your friends and family certainly won't.

Looks a great update from the HS20,with some interesting new features!
You can hardly say it's large and heavy,when it's still smaller than my Pentax KX,and with the massive zoom lens,still far lighter than a DSLR and a bag ful of lenses!
I've tried it and I know which I would prefer!
The HS 30 ismeant to replace all that cumbersome gear,and I think it does a good job.
I already have the HS20,a really versatile piece of kit,and it looks like the new camera is even better still!
The improved EXR sensor is a great feature,and,at last,a better eyepiece for us die-hards who still like the option!
Well done  Fuji!

Cool, we have fixed that up. Thanks for letting us know.
