The HS25EXR supports Full HD video. Most of the other cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to this camera do not support Full HD video.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative digital cameras which support Full HD video currently available including because of it's better review score, the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the SLT-A57Y both from Sony or the Olympus OM-D E-M10.

That's over three times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels camera, which is the most frequently found video resolution supported by comparable spec digital cameras that have been available for more than two years. 640 x 480 pixels is also supported by this Fujifilm digital camera. A video resolution of 1280 x 720 is classified as HD and TVs supporting this resolution are referred to as "HD Ready". However the resolution is not as detailed as Full HD (1920 x 1080).
