Edward, Bournemouth UK Experienced amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Very well built and designed. Excellent in use. Price is probably about right for the spec.
Bad points:
Image quality way below the level indicated by most reviews. The lens appears to be the poorest feature of an otherwise excellent product.
Cannot match the sharpness of the Canon G12 or the Panasonic
FZ150.
Disappointing in this respect

Anthony, Swansea Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use in Auto or EXR modes, with fantastic results. The ability to shoot in manual modes as my skills improve. Continuous shooting very impresive with a fast card fitted. Battery life impressive. EVF image very good. Printed manual supplied.

FEBRUARY 2012
I have been (and I still am) a big fan of the Fuji-film HS20.
For over six months I found it to be a great camera and done all I needed,(that was once I discovered the manual mode).
But people move on, and I think I'd gone just about as far as I could with it,and I wanted something with just a bit better image quality without giving up the versatility of the super-zoom and the full manual control.

Well I think Fuji must have heard me ..

Enter the X-S1..
It's more or less still the HS20,"but much more"
all the shortcomings (or quirks as I call them) of the HS20 seem to have been sorted,

the viewfinder, (now great)
the burst mode ( now continuous, and it can also use100 ISO,(not limited to 200 minimum like before)
the slow focusing, (much faster now)
the slow write speed( much faster ,not a problem)
The image quality (noticeably more refined)
take a look - http://www.flickr.com/photos/tonysturn/sets/
manual focusing much more responsive.
you can also use the full '12mp' so you have that extra crop factor
and there are many things I've probably forgot to mention

So far it's all good, and no negatives ...
