 Fujifilm's FinePix HS20EXR/HS22EXR is a bridge camera that stops short of being a full DSLR while using an SLR-style body. it is a high-end point-and-shoot with full manual controls and priority modes, and includes a telephoto lens that ranges from 24 - 720mm, for about 30x magnification. It uses Fujifilm's new CMOS EXR sensor, which improves contrast range and color fidelity, and is also very sensitive to different scene conditions. The flash detects scene settings and attempts to reduce washout, and there are a variety of shooting convenience features like multiple frames per second, auto release on face recognition, and a continuous mode that allows selection of the best shot to be saved. This camera uses CMOS shift image stabilization, and has a high sensitivity to reduce blurring at long zooms or in low light. Images can be viewed, organized, and searched on the camera with an integrated library assistant.
