Fujifilm FinePix HS25EXR and HS30EXR prosumer super-zoom cameras

Fujifilm has brought out two brand new super-zoom cameras today which sport big 30X zoom lenses, ‘prosumer’ SLR-like design, plenty of manual controls along with an improved EXR CMOS (still 16 megapixels) which promise lower noise at towards the high ISO range.

For America, Fujifilm has also decided to bring about their X-S1 camera (which is essentially their ultimate super-zoom; sporting a larger 12 megapixel 2/3 inch EXR CMOS, 26X optical zoom and plenty of manual controls, and that was announced two months ago in November for the rest of the world) across the pond and will begin shipping next month for $800.
