FujiFilm HS-10 - Related Posts Index

To join the EyeMindSoul Photography forum, where several folk use the FujiFilm HS-10, click here


Just thought I would put links to all the FujiFilm HS-10 posts in an index post. This is one of the cameras which I use currently. It seems to get more use than my others, hence so many posts about it.

On different photography forums, I get a lot of requests for information about the HS-10 and it is easier if there is one page which links to all the posts.

  1. Very good shoots. Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures. HS10 looks like a very good camera!

  2. Rosandy, Hi.
    I am glad you enjoyed them.

    Cheers, Dave.

  3. The colour, contrast and sharpness of the photos from the Fujifilm HS-10 is excellent.
    I know there is some post processing involved to get the results but that is same for DSLR. Why are people spending thousands
    of dollars are DSLR when this camera will meet most of their needs?
    I have a Nikon D200 and I was going to buy a Nikon D7000 but I am going to save my money and buy the new Fujifilm HS-20.
    I am older and I do not want to carry a camera backpack anymore. I already have a Panasonic LX-3 and the Fujifillm HS-20 will cover the rest of the lens range. The video is a bonus. For $500 a person cannot go wrong.

  4. Hi.

    I think the HS-20 EXR will be quite a good package. I'm certainly looking forward to trying one out.


  5. I was very impressed by the thoroughness of your comparison of the RAW converters. Most helpful, thank you.

  6. David, Hi.

    Thank you for your feedback. Glad you found it helpful.


  7. Hi Dave, Really nice posts.
    I too am a proud owner of HS-10 and really happy wiht its performance.
    Adding a link to my pictures -

  8. Vinumon, Hi.

    Thank you.

    Glad you enjoy it. You have some great images there. Love the shoes with the red laces and the little girl on your profile cover.

    Cheers.'ll have a look

  9. Dave whether I buy a HS10 or not, I think you have mastered this camera to its full potential thanks for sharing.

  10. Gary, Hi.

    Thank you for your comment.

    It really is very good for what it is. The main thing which surprises me is that the lens is sharp through the range. It certainly is a versatile and fun camera.


  11. hello dave.....this is sachin 4m india....i am planning to take a hybrid camera...and i have short listed a few cameras like the nikon p500,p100....fujifilm hs22,canon sx30is.....among these i found hs22 as the best goin through the specifications.....but when i contacted professionals they never recommended i would like to hear from you that is it worth investing on fujifilm hs-22...going through your blog i would definetly...but wats your take...i am in dilemma...and is the telephoto convertor applicable to hs22??...hope you come back to me....

  12. Sachin, Hi.

    I am very happy with my HS-10. A friend has the HS-10 and the SX 30 is and feels the HS-10 is a better all-round camera. I have no experience with the Nikon cameras, so I cannot comment on those.

    The HS-20 EXR is not available yet but some sample images are starting to appear. From what I have already seen, they look quite good.

    So, to answer your question - It's difficult to give a recommendation relying solely upon marketing information and on a few sample images. I hope to get an opportunity to shoot some images with one in a couple of weeks.

    Overall, the marriage of the HS-10 lens and an EXR sensor should prove a winning combination. I certainly hope so.


  13. since hs20 s an upgrade of hs-10....i hope it does well....well thanks for your much appreciated comments....hs-20 will be available in india in april this year...and according to the dealer its worth investing....but the camera is powered by 4aa batteries...isnt it a problem as aginst the lithium batteries offered by the rest of the hybrids???
    and is it possible to use teleconverter lenses in your camera???....if yes how do you use it...i am an amatuer in the pls dont mind....some questions may look silly..:(

  14. Sachin, Hi.

    If you look in the tests section above, you will see that I did a test with a teleconverter on the HS-10. The HS-20 will also take a teleconverter.

    I use Panasonic eVolta batteries and get 450-500 images per set. You can also use rechargeable batteries.


  15. oh k....thanks a lot for the info u provided...hope i vl b a proud owner of hs22 nxt month

  16. Hi Dave, thanks for all your useful information on setting up the HS10. One area I cannot find much information on the IS modes. I think I understand the sensor shift mode (and 2 appears best) but what does the digital (+D) do? should it be used? pros / cons? I just cannot find any details on this.

  17. Richard, Hi.

    Sorry but I really don't know either and simply use the number 2 mode. I find that works very well.


  18. Thanks Dave - I'll pop a query on dpreview.

  20. Hello - Amazing photos on your Flickr in beautiful colours !
    I have no Fujicamera yet , but now realised what you can do with it , think I go for a HS10 on monday . Maybe the HS20 perform better in low light , but with the price you pay for the HS10 now a days that will do it for me for a start . And then it`s good to have your block to come back to when info is needed and also interesting to read about the HS20 and the F550exr , so thanx for a usefull block !

  21. Lennart, Hi.

    Many thanks for your comment. I think you would enjoy the HS-10.


  22. Hi Dave. I didn't have enough money to buy HS10 in 2010 so I just bought it this week. After reading some forum saying its problem, I upgraded its firmware to 1.04 right away. But now my HS10 can't use rechargeable NiMH batteries. I've tried Sanyo Eneloops and VXtra 2600 (Taiwan battery). My HS10 takes them as empty although they are fully charged (shown in charger's LCD indicator).

    Do you have any solutions?

    Or, do you have any older firmware (1.03 or 1.02 maybe) ? since I can't find it anywhere on internet.


  23. Ruki, Hi

    I'm sorry but I no longer have the HS10 - Have an HS30 now - And I never tried rechargables. There is a menu setting where you have to set in the menu to tell it that it is using rechargables - Page 107.

    No, I don't have the old firmware.

    Good luck with it all and I hope you get to enjoy it.


    1. Thank you Dave. I have tried the setting in page 107, factory reset, etc. The problem is solved for the people here:
      but not for me.

      Thanks anyway Dave! You've shared useful stuff!
