Fujifilm states that with a 1cm super macro function, the FinePix HS30EXR, the camera can capture a lot of detail in the subject. The Fujinon lens delivers optical quality across the entire zoom range from wide-angle 24mm to 30x telephoto.
In addition, Intelligent Digital Zoom, which is controlled by the Function (Fn) button offers 60x magnification power for occasions when users require even telephoto power to pull in distant details. This zooming feature enables photographers to tackle almost any type of subject matter from landscapes to fine details of wild animals.
Fujifilm claims that while capturing 1080p Full HD movie at 30 frames per second, HS30EXR also has some key improvements from the predecessors. It allows a user to focus manually during movie shooting for more creative focusing effects.
