Default Fuji HS20EXR Owner

Hey everyone, been an avid amateur photographer for a while, took a leap to the Fuji HS20EXR about a month ago and love it. Here's a few pictures I've taken with the new camera, keep the Fuji forums goings.







I do have an issue with getting more detail when I'm zoomed or very close. I haven't touched the manual mode yet, been using the EXR mainly, any advice?

Nice set of images I presently own a e900 loved this camera
I will be saying goodbye to her & looking to get a FinePix F550EXR
I love the quality build of Fuji Cameras they are solid & the image quality is superb.

Enjoy your camera take lots of pictures.
What I recommend for focus issue is & you can do this at home set up a marker let's say a garbage can with a 2 litter soda bottle on top of it on the drive way step back to let's say 20ft and start taking picture at different focal lengths record your settings to find the optimum point of focus for your camera. You will have to do this several times because you have to get the following variables:

Closest focal point
Distant focal Point
And medium Focal Point

Record these settings and memorize them from then on you would have the base point guess
as to your focus also aperture size fstop plays a big role when controlling your depth of field.

Glad to help, the longer I own this camera the more pleased I am with the performance. Check my Facebook fanpage for more photos I've taken with the HS-20 to show how versatile it is.
