In the comparisons with DSLRs,the review makes no mention of the great zoom lens on the XS1,and how much a DSLR would weigh with a comparable range of lenses,or cost!
The XS1 also has several functions not mentioned,which work very well,I.e the Pro low light mode,and the Pro focus modes.
The Auto EXR mode is also very effective,all hardly mentioned at all.
It is also better built than the HS50,and has a better EVF.
So all in all,not a fair comparison,as it all seemed very superficial,and biased,as usual,in favour of DSLRs.
