Fuji continues the popular HS-line of cameras with the Fuji HS30EXR and HS25EXR prior to CES 2012.

The HS30EXR now serves as the flagship HS camera, replacing the HS20, while the HS25EXR steps in as a secondary model in the HS-line.

The HS30EXR features a 16MP CMOS sensor and 30x optical zoom.  Priced at $499.95, the HS30EXR should be available in March.  Check availability on Amazon.com.
