Fujifilm FinePix HS10 Review

Value & Verdict

Fuji HS10 sample thumb



The HS10 is extremely good value, especially when you consider the equivalent cost of an interchangeable-lens camera with such a focal length range. The lens or lenses alone would cost at least double the price. Its current street price brings the camera to around £360, which puts it below the likes of the Canon G11 and just above rivals like the Sony HX1 and Casio FH20, though only by a small amount.




If you are after a bridge camera, the HS10 should be on your shortlist. The viewfinder is its only real failure and no camera in this class has perfected it. If this was solved, and the sensor enlarged to APS-C size, buying a budget DSLR would seem wasteful, but the HS10 is an affordable alternative
