The Fujifilm HS50 EXR is for the photographer who wants to get close to the action without sacrificing photo quality. Its 16-megapixel EXR CMOS II sensor and EXR Processor II ensures that the quality of your photography will remain on the high end. The camera has a manual zoom that can reach a staggering 42x focal length range (24-1000mm). Autofocus speeds of only 0.05 seconds via the Phase Detection pixels on the sensor can help you instantly lock on to your subject. Its Electronic Viewfinder allows you to frame your subject in bright sunlight or if you wear glasses, and its 3-inch LCD screen can help you capture subjects not visible through the viewfinder. You can shoot Full HD (1080p) video at 60fps, and edit your photos with a variety of filter effects, plus its Li-Ion battery is good for 500 shots per charge.
