The FUJIFILM FinePix HS25EXR Digital Camera has many qualities comparable to high-end DSLR cameras. From a powerful 30x zoom lens with manual focus to an electronic viewfinder to full 1080p HD video capture, the HS25EXR is one budget-friendly camera that's out to impress. When you add in the copious amount of auto shooting modes, and creative functions, like Fuji's Film Simulation mode, the 25EXR is more than worthy of your attention. What's more, it's powered by AA batteries - a readily available power source that's both economical and easily obtained. The f/2.8 24mm Super EBC Fujinon lens gives you a 35mm equivalent focal range of 24-720mm. That large range gives you the flexibility to shoot everything from 1cm Super Macro images to far, far-off telephoto subjects. The lens also sports a manual zoom barrel to make the most of the 30x telephoto optical zoom range. The camera also sports 60x Intelligent Digital Zoom, which is controlled by the Fn (Function) button. Additional highlights of the lens include an 11 group and 15 element configuration with a Super Electron Beam Coating (EBC) which reduces ghosting, flare, and purple fringe.
