Fujifilm has introduced the FinePix HS10 advanced superzoom camera, which combines a huge 30x (24-720mm equivalent) optical zoom lens with a 10-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor. It includes full HD 1080p video recording and RAW/JPEG capture options. The camera is capable of shooting true wide-angle and extreme telephoto images.

The 30x wide-telezoom lens has a twist-barrel manual zoom control to allow for fine-tuned adjustments, but the lens can also be used in A/S/M shooting modes. The lens also is equipped with triple image stabilization. In addition, the HS10 offers 10-fps full-resolution continuous shooting with AF Tracking, high-speed movie recording at 1000 fps and optimized low-light shooting capabilities.

Best frame capture mode is useful for rapid-movement shots—in this mode, the camera continuously records images from the moment the user focuses, then saves up to seven shots before or after the shutter is released. The 3-inch high-resolution tilt screen is programmed to sync with the eye sensor in the electronic viewfinder to allow for automated switching between the two viewing locations.

Motion panorama mode now allows for "one click" sweeping panoramas with rapid-fire image capturing, and motion remover mode eliminates unwanted objects — like tourists or other moving entities — from the shot by taking five sequential images and removing objects that don't appear in every frame.

The FinePix HS10 has an estimated price of $499.
