              I have read somewhere that the manual zoom on the X-S1 is much smoother than the HS50. If one does a lot of videos,you probably won't like the zoom on the HS50,doesn't zoom very well.

              Hi Tony, the HS50 produces 15.9MP images as you can see on the HS50 specs page, but we compare a calculated "true resolution" based on limitations of small sensor sizes to avoid claiming cameras are better when manufacturers just pack more megapixels into the same small sensors with no benefit.

              The HS50 is 16mp .. not 10.6 another reason the HS50 wins..
