Good points:
Features.
Bad points:
Lack of printed manual. Yes you can put the disc in and se the manual on screen but printed pages are much more accessible even than
Reading it on an iPhone.

Good points:
Now in my sixties and a full time carer,I don't get out that much and tend to spend a lot of time in my garden.
I started to watch the wildlife,more and more,over the last year, and the more I watched them, the more I was fascinated by them.
I thought If I get a nice camera, then I could capture some of their antics,and give myself a hobby at the same time.
I've had a random mixture of point and shoots in the past, but wanted something a little better,this time something I could learn with and not just press a button and hope for the best.
When I saw the HS20, the idea of the manual 30x zoom , the 11/fps and 16mp tempted me,and ticked all the boxes. So ignoring all the negative reviews on the forums, I bought one in July.

I've had my HS20 for about 4 months now and I have to say 'at first' I was not over impressed with it,but after trying all the various settings, and ready to accept it as just average ,I discovered the manual mode,and it was 'wow!!' one of those 'eureka moments'. now I could get the camera to see what I see, and not just some 'exposure compromise', like the camera sees when left in auto mode.
Ever since then I love this camera.luckily I've had none of the problems with overheating that some have had, and the focusing is just fine to me (wish it was quicker sometimes,but what can you do).
I think the 30x barrel zoom is just so powerful and versatile, and I've had some great images even at full zoom.
Take a look at my flickr page -

If you have this camera or are thinking about buying one,believe me, take your time to get to know all the settings,(It's not a point and shoot it's a bridge camera)
And If possible learn manual mode,it's so worth the effort,then you like me will be overjoyed with this camera.
