Having checked most of the major online retailers and my local Fuji outlet, sadly still no sign of the HS50, and to date no-one seems to know anything about it and there is still no pre-launch advertising. Is this a camera release by stealth, who knows, and at this point I really don’t care all that much.

Given this nonsensical approach to a product launch and Fuji’s behavior over the past twelve months its pretty much convinced me to turn my back on any further  dealings with Fuji. There are more camera makers in the market who obviously value their customers morose than Fuji.
