Fuji HS10 Video Sample

The image quality from my new Fuji HS10 has been very pleasing. Better than I’d have hoped for. The video quality? The HS10 can do video in Full HD (1920 x 1080) but I found the quality on my monitor to be jerky, full of pixelation and generally useless. This could well be my PC rather than the camera. In fact, I’d bet on it. But no matter. I don’t really need full HD, so I converted the video to lower res HD (1280 x 720) and got a much better result.

The video is below. I took a few clips from different environments around the Centro Historico. The video quality doesn’t seem to quite match my old FZ35, but there’s not much in it. The Panasonic was a bit smoother I think. The audio, however, seems much more life like with the Fuji. But I still need to play with the settings and production options to get the best out of the HS10.

    Gary, Loved the images, but had to turn HD OFF in order to get a fairly jutter-free image. I have a 2meg cable download, and I guess the HD has so much more data on the line that my PC couldn’t keep up with it! Once again, thanks for reminding me about the things I really like in Mexico!


    • You’re not the first to complain about that Dan. I’ve looked for a solution, to set videos to play in SD as standard, but to no avail. I can turn off HD embedding though, which I guess I’ll do from now on!
