Fujifilm HS30 vs Fujifilm HS20

FinePix HS30EXR features an improved EXR-CMOS sensor, By redesigning the shape of the photo diodes used in the EXR-CMOS sensor, the images display 30% less digital noise at higher ISO settings, which results in smoother tones and better low light images.

The Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) has been greatly improved.

New Lithium-ion rechargeable battery delivers up to 600 pictures per charge.

New EVF : Fujifilm HS30 EXR features same EVF as Fujifilm X S1, FinePix HS30EXR’s EVF  have large display unit of 0.26-inche and features 920,000 dots, compared to only 200,000 dots on the HS20EXR, making for a far clearer viewing image.

Writing Speed: The writing period after continuous shooting has also been dramatically cut to approximately 2 seconds (compared to 20 seconds on the HS20EXR).

New Intelligent Digital Zoom function: This doubles the focal range, delivering a massive 60x zoom (30XDigital + 30XOptical) with a maximum telephoto setting of 1440mm.

In the new Fujifilm HS30 EXR you get customisable Function (Fn) key to assign shortcut and New HS30 EXR supports manual focus during movie recording.

Fujifilm HS30 Comparison review

Sensor and image processor:

Fujifilm claims that HS30 uses new sensor, by redesigning the shape of the photo diodes used in the EXR-CMOS sensor, the images display 30% less digital noise at higher ISO settings (compared to HS20 @ ISO 3200), which results in smoother tones and better low light images.

Canon SX 40 HS uses newly developed BSI CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 image processor, the Digic 5 image processor creates 75% less noise and 6X faster compared to Digic 4 image processor,  Due to new sensor and image processor you get more details and less noise in high ISO settings.

Multi-area White Balance in SX 40 HS: The Canon SX40 HS features advanced Multi-area White Balance optimizing color tones of both subject and background under multiple light sources.

Nikon P500 comes with a BSI CMOS sensor but uses old expeed 2 image processor.

 

Image Processor:  Image processor of both Canon and Fuji are very fast, both can capture approx 10.3 / 11  shot/sec in high speed shooting mode, Nikon P500 is limited to 8 shot/sec only.

RAW: Fuji is a clear winner on RAW mode, Only Fujifilm HS30 features RAW format capture.


IS Image Stabilization

  Fujifilm HS30 EXR Canon SX 40 HS Nikon P500
Image Stabilization Sensor Shift + High ISO Optical Sensor Shift and VR
IS Modes(Hybrid IS) Not Available Available (Normal, Macro, Panning, Dynamic, Powered, Tripod) Not Available

 

Fuji (CMOS shift + High ISO) Fuji HS30 uses sensor shift and High ISO modes to prevent camera shake.

Canon SX 40HS features 6 IS Modes and Optical IS The new Hybrid System of Canon SX 40 HS features Six  Intelligent IS Modes, Canon SX 40 HS automatically chooses from six different modes (Normal, Macro, Panning, Dynamic, Powered, Tripod) to optimize image stabilization and help achieve crisp, blur-free images for various shooting conditions

Nikon features Image sensor shift(not optical) + electronic vibration reduction (VR) function

Images captured with image sensor shift vibration reduction enabled are further processed with electronic VR for images that are sharper and exhibit less blur.

 

Lens and Aperture Range

Camera / Specification Fujifilm HS30 EXR Canon SX 40 HS Nikon P500
Optical Zoom 30X 35X 36X
Macro 1cm 0 cm 1 cm
Aperture F2.8 – F5.6 F2.7 – F5.8 F3.5 – F5.7

 

Based on lens quality, aperture and optical zoom range canon SX 40 HS is a clear winner,

Canon features UD glass, double-sided aspherical glass-molded and ultra-high-refraction-index glass lens elements to effectively suppress chromatic aberration while maintaining a remarkably compact size. The camera uses a VCM (Voice Coil Motor) for high-speed, quiet, energy-efficient lens movement with precise control.

Similarly as canon, Fuji features high optical performance glass lens elements (aspherical, high refractive index, and ED glass lenses) make the exceptional brightness of F2.8 at wide angle and F5.6 at telephoto possible.

Nikon P500 features 36x Zoom and NIKKOR ED glass.

 

Shutter Speed

You get more range in shutter speed in Fujifilm HS30 compared to SX 40 HS or Nikon P500.

Movie Mode

All the three Megazoom camera offers Full HD Video recording and AF during Video mode. Fuji offers Full HD at 30 fps, Canon Full HS at 24 fps and Nikon Full HD at 30 fps.

Practically I like Canon vari-angle display, but Nikon Wins here, Nikon P500 features 3″  Tilting Screen with  921,000 screen dots and Fully articulated 2.7″ LCD with  230,000 Screen dots.

 

Viewfinder:

Fuji features a 0.26-inch superb high resolution viewfinder (approx. 920,000 screen dots)  with eye sensor.

DxOMark Test - the Fujifilm X100 Sensor

Fuji X100 sensor measured on DxOMark.com

Fuji X100 outperforms 4/3 sensors (see the comparison: Fuji X100 vs Olympus PEN EP2 vs Panasonic Lumix DMC GH2).

APS-C sensor, 23mm non-movable fixed focal, great “Leica-like” design… here are the measurements for one the most anticipated cameras this spring – the Fuji X100.

Its sensor behaves similarly to the best APS-C sensors (see the comparison: Fuji X100 vs Nikon D7000 vs Sony SLT Alpha 55).

Nikon D5100 Review at Cnet

Though it doesn’t rank first based on any individual aspect of the camera, the Nikon D5100 delivers a solid combination of image quality, performance, features, and design that puts it out in front if you’re looking for a well-rounded option under $1,000.

Amateur photographer hands on review

The camera is 10% smaller than its predecessor, with a new curvier design. It looks almost like a bridge camera, with the kit lens attached and despite the plastic body, still feels solid in the hand. The grip uses an elastic rubber material, which also helps to maintain a solid hold of the camera
