I bought the HS20EXR after wanting a more professional camera than my compact. For the price and sheer list of features, I felt I couldn't got far wrong with the HS20EXR.

Having a older S5700 model before that performed very well, I was expecting this one to seriously outperform in every department.

Well, the camera arrived quickly and it looks great, the build quality is very good and it has a nice textured feel to it.

The features when in the EXR menu are pretty good and it can do some basic Photoshop effects for you while shooting.

The 30x zoom is great but you need to have either a tripod or steady hands to take a decent shot at that range.

The panorama setting is fantastic, you can take a picture at 360 and get absolutely no tearing or mismatch through out the entire picture, thanks to its built in level and motion sensor.

There are some serious downfalls of this camera:

It can shoot at full 1080p HD, however the video isn't as good as you would expect.
Depending on your manufacture date, you may need to update the firmware to get some of the niggles out which is a easy process.
Sometimes the auto focus will focus then re focus then refocus etc, which can become annoying.

The picture quality isn't very good at all. I tried on Auto and EXR in full day light and the pictures would stay grainy no matter what settings were inputted. This was a serious point about this camera and as such I sent it back to get a canon 550D.

I would recommend this camera if you want a feature packed and cheap family camera for non important social events. But, if you want super high quality and professional grade pictures, this is not the camera to buy. I would pull out some more money and buy a better DSLR.
