A very nice feature is the articulating 3.0-inch LCD screen. This can pull away from the camera body and then angled up or down as needed. The display uses 230,000 dots of resolution and brightness adjustment options.
The right side controls are as follows: The red button serves as the Movie mode shutter release to start and stop video recording. Next is the AE/AF Lock button. Using this will lock in the Auto Exposure and Auto Focus settings. The 4-way controller takes center stage providing shortcuts to several functions such as flash and timer settings, macro modes, Instant Zoom and deleting unwanted images when your in playback mode. In the center is the Menu/OK button, which enters the menu system and accepts selections. On the bottom are the Disp/BACK and Playback buttons. The DISP/BACK button changes the amount of information displayed on the LCD/EVF or accesses framing grids. It also is used to back out of menu screens when your in the Menus. Playback allows you to view files saved on the memory card.
On top of the camera we find the On/Off switch, shutter release, exposure compensation button, continuous shooting button, shooting mode dial and command dial. This is the rotary dial that is used to change the selected exposure settings, depending on which shooting mode is being used.
On the side of the camera are the two ports that allow for things like file transfers, PictBridge printing and viewing images on external monitors. The top HDMI port is for use with High Definition devices, like your LCD or Plasma HDTV set. The bottom one is used for PictBridge printing, plugging in an AV cable to view on images/movies on a standard definition TV or using a USB cable for connecting the HS10 to a PC or Mac.
You have the option of using either SD or SDHC cards, there is also 46-MB of internal storage. Shown here is a Lexar Professional (133x) 8GB SDHC card.
Memory Card Capacities:
Powering the HS10 are 4 AA Batteries. Fujifilm provides 4 Alkaline batteries, shown here are some Max E rechargeable cells, which last longer than Alkaline cells, and will save you money in the long run. The nice thing about AA batteries is that when you run out of juice they are readily available at most stores. Depending on the type of AA's used (i.e. Alkaline, Ni-MH or Lithium) Fujifilm claims several different battery life estimates: up to 700 shots using one-use Lithium cells, 400 with NiMH batteries, or 300 shots using Alkalines.
