  • I was comparing Fuji HS50 to Nikon P510 and got much useful information. I then compared Fuji HS50 to Canon SX50 and it appears that your web-page of this view is partially IN ERROR. The photos are correct but the side by side comparison STILL REFERS to the Nikon P510. You might want to have this corrected soon. Thank you Himself

    Thanks for the update.

    I have owned both of these cameras and although the technical specs would seem to favor the Fujifilm HS50 I’ve found from experience that the Canon takes MUCH higher quality pictures in regular conditions. They are both nice cameras, but I like the Canon’s picture clarity and low light ability far more than the Fuji.
    Neither camera is of course a big full featured DSLR, but they don’t cost $1000s and they don’t weigh the 15 pounds you’d need with this kind of zoom length.
    Either is a nice portable substitute for a wallet and back breaking DSLR with this much zoom.

    Edward, I’m not sure how you can make the claim that you have any experience with the Fuji HS50EXR since the camera won’t be released until late March of 2013 and you posted your comment in mid-February.

    I own the Canon SX50HS and it really is an incredible little camera with a couple of technical limitations that the Fuji will probably resolve. If the Fuji can take similarly good pictures (which remains to be seen) then I think Fuji will have a winner on their hands.

    I own a few cameras , a Fujifilm HS11 , an old but still great Konica Minolta Z1 and an Olympus OM4-Ti

    picture quality is seemingly a room of smoke and mirrors, a friend of mine has a Canon 60D , i showed some other friends about 20 pics I took with my HS11 and compared them with my friends 60D (both taken in the same place and of the same subject matter , in All cases , people said the HS11 pics were slightly better , it was difficult to pin point any real difference , in fact even compared with another friends Sony SLT A55 the image quality isnt that apparent , so are these Large costly DSLRs really worth buying (the Canon 60D + 2 lenses was 6 times the cost of my HS11 & the Sony was 4 times the cost)) if you are NOT a serious everyday photographer? Im waiting for the HS50EXR or the new Sony HX300 to become available

    Been looking at these bridge cameras for quite a while, maybe too much. But a lot of people say that the Canon with its smaller sensor and less mps has better picture quality than the Fuji HS50EXR.. All the stats say the Fuji is a better camera. Can’t find in the Chicago suburbs to get my hands on. Anyone with any experience with these cameras? Have a great day. Dabs….

  • Infact the SX50 really has much better and sharper imagequality than the
    HS50. Even though the HS50 has a bigger sensor and stuff..
    But the SX50 is just supperior! I checked so many tests, and user review,
    compared photos and checked both cams myself.
    You can also check pages like
    To compare the images. The pics of the Fujicam seem to be very unsharp.
    I think you pay for the features on the HS50.. but on the SX50 you pay for imagequality!
