Our old friend Gerwyn Jones has been busy with his new camera.
Gerwyn is a regular on my Photography Holidays in Menorca and he recently downsized his camera gear from heavy DSLRs to a little FinePix HS50EXR. And he loves it.
A charming shot by Gerwyn Jones using his Fujifilm Finepix HS50EXR with its incredible zoom lens.
Gerwyn tells me he has no more aching backs and he is much more likely to get out and about with his camera now that he is travelling light.
He recently spent a day at London Zoo and produced two cracking pictures with his new camera.

With its 42x optical zoom lens, the little HS50 is a formidable piece of kit when you neeed to get in close the the animals and Gerwyn has used the camera to great effect in both these shots.
I think the Fujifilm Finepix HS50EXR would make a great Christmas present for any photographer so I have put it into the PhotoActive Shop.
