        La Hs20 EXR de Fujifilm lamentablemente es una Maquina Única e Inigualable para nosotros los Expedicionarios de la Naturaleza y de los momentos del instante.... es una maquina super Compleja... con tecnología de Vanguardia y tan fácil y sencilla de manejar como una simple cámara Digital.... Ademas de todo cuenta con Super Zoon Digital con filtros EXR... es una maquina Compacta y que garantiza la captura de los momentos no repetitivos....!

        Esperemos que los envidiosos que no saben de cámaras y que no se han colocado detrás de ellas al momento de  capturar escenarios los dejen engañar.... Igual no comparen la Camara sin tener la experiencia de haberla Usado... 
        Saludos....
