As well as being compared against other super zooms, the Fujifilm FinePix HS10 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs and compacts. The Fujifilm FinePix HS10's top rivals come from Fujifilm (such as the FinePix HS25 EXR and the FinePix S6000fd) and Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III and the CyberShot DSC-H300)

compared toSuper zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Fujifilm HS10 compared to other super zoom competitors include: it has a screen which flips out, has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD), supports an external flash and has a faster max shutter speed (1/4000 of a second vs 1/2000 of a second).

However, on average it has a slightly lower resolution screen (230k dots vs 1,228k dots), slightly lower maximum light sensitivity (6,400 ISO vs 12,800 ISO), is older (february 2010 vs january 2012) and is slightly more expensive ($899.95 vs $364.64).
