... should be here by the end of the week.
Yes please. Go and photograph those white swans again. I'd like to see how the HS handles that as compared to the SX.
Try the camera out in the toughest situations you can find. I'd really like to know if the HS50 is a viable option for me. I'm not going to compare it to an APS-C DSLR... but I think sensor and lens technology is finally reaching the point where a camera like this is a genuine option.
Will do! Hopefully the swans will be accommodating.
I'll make some RAWs and full-size TIFFs available for people to download, and also some comparable images with the Canon SX50, which seems to have the best sensor of this generation of 1000+ mm superzooms. Unfortunately, I can't do a true back-to-back comparo, as I had to sell the SX50 to help finance the new Fuji.
Ultimately, it was the tiny, low-res EVF of the Canon that caused me to turn to the HS50.
Oooooh look forward to your first shots!
I am loving my HS30EXR

Love the subject isolation.
Was that a jpeg, or did you convert from RAW?
thank you! jpeg ISO 400 in poor light
Just faved in Flickr... Do the 30 and the 50 share the same sensor or has it been improved even more?
Supposedly the HS50 has an improved sensor, but according to a few folks on the DPR Fuji forum there doesn't seem to be much difference.
The question for me is, does the X-S1 have any practical, real world advantage over the HS50? I know it has a larger, 2/3 sensor versus a 1/2 sensor in the HS50. But does it really matter?
