From the Manufacturer

Combining the pin-sharp 14.3x Fujinon optical zoom lens (30.5mm-436mm equivalent) so popular in its predecessor, the award-winning FinePix S100FS, with Fujifilm's latest 12-megapixel Super CCD EXR sensor, the FinePix S200EXR is aimed at top-end camera enthusiasts looking for excellent picture quality without the hassle, bulk and expense of a DSLR system.

Fuji Finepix S200EXR digital camera highlights
Users of the FinePix S200EXR will find their results equal or superior to DSLRs, principally due to the revolutionary design of Fujifilm's EXR CCD sensor technology. The key improvements of the FinePix S200EXR over the FinePix S100FS are:
  • 1/1.6-inch, 12-megapixel Super CCD EXR sensor
  • EXR Priority modes and EXR Auto
  • Pro Focus Mode and Pro Lowlight Mode
  • 5 Film Simulation Modes (Black & White mode and Sepia mode is added)
  • A new 2.7-inch high contrast 230k-pixel LCD
  • New 'Super Intelligent Flash'
  • Improved battery life--almost a 50% increase on the FinePix S100FS
  • Combined CCD-RAW (EXR)/JPEG shooting
The EXR sensor on the FinePix S200EXR was built to perfectly match the optical qualities of its 14.3x Fujinon optical zoom lens. The goal was to produce a sensor/lens combination that works as close to that of the human eye as possible. The EXR sensor is essentially a switchable sensor; changing its complex electronic behavior to suit the subject, changing its characteristics as the photographer demands, and producing the very best picture without making compromises.
Fuji Finepix S200EXR digital camera highlights

This sensor has already won great acclaim with the FinePix F200EXR. Combined with the much bigger, more powerful 14.3x lens, it delivers quite astounding results.

The FinePix S200EXR offers 3 switchable modes in one sensor:
  • High Resolution (HR) Mode: Deploys all 12 million pixels and is designed to offer the finest detail of intricate subjects when light is full and even.
  • Wide Dynamic Range (DR) Mode: Captures different exposures with two sets of 6 million pixels, which, when combined, gives an excellent level of detail in highlights that would otherwise be lost.
  • High Sensitivity and Low Noise (SN) Mode: Caps two adjacent pixels together to produce 6 million large photodiodes, which are big enough to absorb light in the darkest of conditions, to produce low-light shots of extraordinary quality with minimal noise and grain.
Advanced Intelligence
The FinePix S200EXR also offers EXR Priority Mode, which is the most efficient mechanism yet invented to quickly optimize the camera's settings to allow the photographer to concentrate on capturing the perfect shot. The photographer can decide which sensor setting is preferable by choosing High Resolution Priority (HR) to maximize resolution, High ISO and Low Noise Priority (SN) for high quality low-light work or D-Range Priority (DR) for the best detail with contrasting subjects.

In addition, the FinePix S200EXR features the EXR Auto Mode, which offers 6 different modes depending on the setting: Portrait, Night, Macro, Landscape, Night Portrait and Backlit Portrait. The camera will automatically recognize the scene and not only optimize focus, color balance, exposure, flash and sensitivity, but will also automatically switch the sensor to HR, SN or DR mode depending on the lighting conditions of the scene.

14.3 optical zoom in action
Super Sharp Lens
The massive 14.3x Fujinon manual zoom lens is truly a delight to use in such a compact, lightweight design. The ultra-high precision Fujinon lens achieves maximum resolution at all focal lengths of 30.5mm-436mm equivalent with maximum aperture of a bright F2.8 (wide angle) to F5.3 (telephoto). Because of the composite body and lens structure, there is no need to worry about dirt or dust on the Super CCD EXR sensor and they are perfectly aligned for the very best results. The manual zoom offers faster image framing with fingertip precision as well as offering a user experience that closely matches the use of a high-end DSLR.

Pro Focus Mode / Pro Low-light Mode
The FinePix S200EXR also sports a Pro Focus Mode which is created by using Fujifilm's new Multi-Frame Technology. A burst of two or three frames is taken and by taking the distance information off, the main subject is crisply matted against a defocused foreground and background. This mode is perfect for portrait or nature photography, where professional results are needed quickly with minimal adjustment to the camera and without the need to use a PC.

Meanwhile, Pro Low-light Mode can be applied to help solve the problems of noisy low light shots. With current digital cameras, it is possible to achieve relatively blur-free low light shots using high ISO and CCD shift (or optical image) stabilization, but this comes at a cost, as the ISO 1600 setting will invariably produce distracting and ugly noise.

Once switched to Pro Low-light Mode, the FinePix F200EXR will take a burst of four high sensitivity images using Pixel Fusion Technology in quick succession. By using the camera's Multi Frame Technology, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th images are overlapped to create one image with extremely low noise.

Film Simulation Modes
One of the more popular features on the FinePix S100FS is reproduced and extended on the FinePix S200EXR. The FinePix S200EXR offers five modes as follows:
  • Velvia/Vivid mode for rich and luscious landscapes
  • PROVIA/Standard mode for excellent, sharp, standard photography
  • ASTIA/Soft mode for soft, fine, smooth tonality
  • Black & White mode captures the dramatic honesty of your image in black and white
  • Sepia mode creates a sense of nostalgia with the warm brown "antique" tones of Sepia
In Provia, Velvia and Astia modes, the dynamic range can be now be set to 800% to improve and highlight details further.

1) Fujifilm S200, 2) Conventional Digital Camera
New High Contrast 2.7-inch LCD
The FinePix S200EXR is fitted with an improved high contrast 230k-pixel 2.7-inch LCD. The high contrast LCD is a considerable benefit in bright light and the camera can be pitched at various shooting angles to enable framing of awkward shots. Viewable at 160-degrees both vertically and horizontally, the LCD is bright and clear for beautiful rendition of shots in playback.

Super Intelligent Flash
Fujifilm's Super Intelligent Flash system is a flash control technology that lets you take flash-assisted shots without the danger of flash wash-out. Integrated into the AUTO mode, this next-generation flash system makes it easy to capture both subjects and background in bright, clear and natural detail over the full flash range. This allows for much better flash control when shooting in macro and makes sure that the subject is brightly lit and the background clearly defined when shooting in night mode.

Dual Image Stabilization
The FinePix S200EXR features Fujifilm's Optical Image Stabilization technology to ensure clean, sharp and blur-free images, even in low-light conditions. This combines image stabilization by Optical Image Stabilization to reduce blur from the photographer's hand-shake, with Fujifilm High ISO, to reduce blur caused by subject movement (by automatically increasing ISO), for the ultimate in stabilization technology.

Manual Settings
The FinePix S200EXR also allows you full manual control with the ability to set shutter speeds of between 1/4,000 second and 30 seconds. It is possible to take photos with combinations of ISO sensitivity, which has a broad range of setting choices, and multiple apertures of between F2.8 - F11 at 1/3EV steps. Using the manual exposure setting, bulb exposure of up to 30 seconds is possible. The color, noise reduction control, tone and the sharpness can all be individually set as well.

Multi Bracketing
The FinePix S200EXR has 3 bracketing functions useful for high level photography: Film Simulation Bracketing (which automatically sets Film Simulation to PROVIA, Velvia and ASTIA for simultaneous capture of 3 frames), Dynamic Range Bracketing (which automatically sets dynamic range to 100%, 200% and 400% for simultaneous capture of 3 frames) and AE Bracketing (which automatically sets exposure range to even, under and over for simultaneous capture of 3 frames).

Other noteworthy features in the FinePix S200EXR:

Combined CCD RAW (EXR)/JPEG shooting
New to the FinePix S200EXR is the ability to shoot both a RAW and JPEG shot simultaneously, like the award-winning S5Pro digital camera. RAW is for ultimate quality shots via post processing, JPEG is for great quality with no need for further work.

Battery life extended
With improved power management, the FinePix S200EXR can now provide 370 shots per charge of the included NP-140 Lithium Ion battery, so there is no need to worry about power running out half way through a photo shoot.

Movie Mode
The FinePix S200EXR can record movies in 640 x 480 at 30 frames per second. The optical zoom can be used during movie recording.

Electronic View Finder
The camera is fitted with a 0.2" 200K-pixel EVF, for sharp and clear images.

Let me say for starters I have been dabbling in photography for years and have always had Nikons. F100, D100, D90. I wanted something to carry around without the huge camera case and lenses so I tried the Canon Sx10is which in itself is a nice little camera, then Panasonic FZ35, which again is a nice little camera, both of which feel like toys in comparison to Nikon D90, but their results are very good, but Pany was just too small for my hands. Then comes the SX200EXR. All the feel of an SLR without the motorized zoom, which I hated, and so far results that are very impressive. The colors and resolution are IMHO on par with any DSLR I have used without even trying to get it right. Although you can go full manual if you want to, all the programs from shutter priority to auto EXR are showing great results. Auto EXR is very impressive and I usually wouldn't say that about any "auto" mode!
There has been alot of talk about the fringeing problem that it's predecesor, the S100SF has and I have yet to see any with this camera. I love it.

I have shot about 40 pictures so far with the camera and love it! I have yet to take a poor picture with it. The three bracketing shots with their different film emulations works great. So do the macro modes for clear close-ups with very blurred backgrounds. I have owned four Fuji cameras, if you count the one that I gave my wife, but used when my S9100 bit the dust. This fifth one takes the cake. Noise is visibly reduced and usually non-existant. I did get some dots on a hummingbird's tummy, but I don't know if that was the camera or the bird. The hummingbird was in shadow with strong backlighting. The learning curve is a little steep, because there are so many bells and whistles on it. I need to keep reading the manual until I figure out all that it does. But, then again, I never did use some of the features on the S9000 and the S9100. I recommend the S200EXR to anyone who wants a very capable super-zoom digital. No, it isn't an SLR. I seriously considered buying the cheapest Canon so I could use the lenses from my old film camera. I am happy I didn't. I can get all the telephoto and wide-angle effects that I would have gotten with the Canon and my lenses, but I don't have to swap lenses and I don't have to worry about dust on the mirror and sensor like an SLR owner does. Check it out on Fuji's website and here for more information.

I am a photo hobbyist. I do photograph a few paid clients and events using a DSLR and other photo equipment. Recently I planned an eastern cruise but didn't want to lug all that equipment with me and changing out several lenses. I researched this camera for weeks and it was a toss up with two other brands in similarity. At the very last moment I decided on this one. Absolutely NO regrets.
Beautiful photographs...easy to use by everyone...even my five year old granddaughter had fun with it.
The Carribean waters and sunsets were awesome shots with this camera. I did get some grainy shots with the sunsets and night photography however noise reduction software cleared that right up. The silent mode and EXR came in handy at the night shows where cameras and flashes are not allowed.
I thought I would need a large camera bag for the lens being attached and long, but my small upright compact purse worked great with extra room to spare. I just divided 3/4 of the inside purse with a soft divider for the camera's protection and it was easy access and carry. It was so light weight on my shoulder.
The flash worked really good for filling in shadows around faces without beaming on the skin. The zoom lens pulled in a lot of detail with no effort. The custom modes work alot like a DSLR.
I also have a shaky hand. You would not know it looking at the photos taken. I usually grab the tripod. Not on this trip! I've decided to take this camera to a special events function for "hot shots" and special memories.

Well I will keep this short and sweet.

I own both the S200EXR and the HS10 and to be honest if I had to pick I would go with the S200EXR. The S200 is faster and has a better burst feature. Both are good in Low light. The shots all are great.

But it does not have a ext. flash port other then the hot shoe.

The only thing I don't like is it does not use AA's like others do. But hell I can live with it.

If you would like to see samples of shots I have done Email me for them

- First: I typically use a Canon 30D with multiple lenses to get the results that I want.

- Second: I am not a professional photographer, however a very experienced enthusiast.

I bought this camera for my father for his birthday. Throughout this, I have had the opportunity to use this camera myself, and also give my younger brother a very short lesson on how to use cameras and what ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed and the rest of all the details are on cameras. I spent one evening and 30 minutes of field work with my brother, who has no camera experience whatsoever, and he walked away producing several photos that I was very impressed with.

After using this camera in Full Manual with utilizing the setting to manually set the "Film Mode", I have to say that I am extremely impressed with this camera. My next camera was going to be the Canon 7D. However, after working with this camera I believe that I will get this camera for my own use within the next few months - mind you I own a Canon 30D with several Canon lenses along with others by third party manufacturers.

Ultimately, a very good camera. However, I can honestly say that one truly needs to get into the full manual modes to completely appreciate the capabilities of this camera. It offers some of the settings which are not found in cameras $20 less than this. In addition, some of the auto settings which come standard with this camera far exceed those which are offered in other cameras.

One draw back - this camera does not offer HD video recording.

In my opinion - WHO CARES?! I DO NOT BUY STILL CAMERAS FOR MOTION PHOTOGRAPHY. If you wish to get motion photography at its highest details, buy a Canon XH A1 ([...]); ([...]) or above if you are truly serious.
