Action shots with the Fuji HS10

The Fuji HS10 records movies in high definition (HD) at full 1080p HD resolution. It also highlights the new motion panorama mode for 'one shot' sweeping panoramas. 

Which? digital cameras expert Richard Parris says, 'Only a year ago we were impressed to be seeing cameras with 20x or even 24x zooms. A 30x zoom offers huge potential to users, and we look forward to testing the HS10 to see if it can deliver great pictures as well'.
