The first impression that the camera puts on you is its DSLR looking design . Very honestly saying that camera looks more like DSLR rather than zoom or bridge camera , well that is nice about the HS50EXR . Fujifilm did some changes minor and some major changes at the back/rear  of Finepix HS50EXR  . As there is no set  of usual array at rear left  ,despite this they added ‘ Q ‘ button which can be used for quick menu selection . We think the reason behind removing usual array buttons in new Lcd Screen , screen can be rotated by number of angles . On the top of HS50exr  there is flash , hot shoe , mode dialer , command dialer and shutter button .

What is new NEW ?

Look wise Fuji does many changes , like change in Lcd Monitor , lens and buttons at the rear of the camera .

    "On the top of HS50exr there is flash , hot shoe , mode dialer , command dialer and shutter button with zoom controller." - the zoom control is manual so the shutter button has no zoom control. It has on off switch.

    I have this camera and the features are impressive BUT I think Fuji really messed up with the sensor. This Camera is hard to get a good clear focus. On further investigation I discovered that the sensor is only the size of a cell phone sensor. What could have been an incredible camera was made pretty much useless.
