Fujifilm's FinePix F200EXR digital camera introduces the world to Super CCD EXR technology. Combining the 12-megapixel, Super CCD EXR with a powerful Fujinon 5.0x wide angle optical zoom lens and a large 3.0-inch high-resolution LCD, the FinePix F200EXR is Fujifilm's most advanced compact digital camera yet.
As with previous award-winning F-series models such as the FinePix F10, F31fd, F50fd and F100fd, the F200EXR is a powerful, feature-packed compact digital camera ideal for those looking for the most sophisticated in feature-rich point and shoots.
The FinePix F200EXR offers 3 selectable modes in one sensor:
- Fine Capture Mode (High Resolution), which deploys all twelve million pixels, and is designed to offer the finest detail of intricate subjects when light is full and even;
- Pixel Fusion Mode (High Sensitivity and Low Noise), which caps two adjacent pixels together to produce six 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; and
- Dual Capture (Wide Dynamic Range), which captures different exposures with two sets of six million pixels, which, when combined, gives an excellent level of detail in highlights and low lights that would otherwise be lost.
With EXR AUTO, the F200EXR recognizes the subject and scene, and automatically decides the optimum EXR shooting mode. With three options of Fine Capture Technology with High Resolution, Pixel Fusion Technology for High Sensitivity and Low Noise, and Dual Capture Technology for Wide Dynamic Range--that users can also select manually--the camera combines the best of EXR selectable sensor modes with SR Auto Automatic Scene Recognition.
The F200EXR also delivers wider Dynamic Range... by up to 800 percent. Dynamic Range, or the gradations of light that exist between bright and dark in any setting, can be easily detected by the human eye, but not by most cameras. Through a combination of advances in Fujifilm's new Super CCD EXR and Real Photo Processor, this wide dynamic range dramatically broadens tonal capability and guarantees exceptional rendition of photos with both bright highlights and dark shadows. This expansion of sensitivity captures greater detail, and subtle nuances of brightness and tonality that bring the photo closer to what the human eye actually sees.
FinePix F200EXR Highlights
Extreme Sensor Super CCD EXR Debut
Even Closer to the Human Eye - 3-way Capture Technology The new Super CCD EXR provides superior picture quality, enabling a "3-in-1" sensor combination of "Fine Capture Technology" (High Resolution), "Pixel Fusion Technology" (High Sensitivity & Low Noise), and "Dual Capture Technology" (Wide Dynamic Range). With an innovative color filter array and image processing technology, the EXR ensures an advanced reproduction in imaging with exceptionally balanced quality.
EXR AUTO: Extreme Point-and-Shoot The EXR AUTO not only automatically recognizes the scene and selects the ideal shooting mode, but also "switches" the sensor to the perfect capture mode for the conditions.
EXR AUTO in Macro Mode (3-way Capture Technology) As soon as you frame the close-up shot, EXR AUTO not only selects Macro mode, but switches the sensor to the appropriate high resolution capturing modes in full 12-megapixels.
EXR AUTO: Just "As Your Eye Sees It" With the sensor and every settings automatically optimized for the scene, the image can be captured just as your eyes see them.
EXR Priority: Extreme Creativity With EXR Priority, you can manually switch the sensor to one of three capture modes. Just like your eye prioritizes different functions for optimal viewing of different scenes, each EXR mode uses a different approach to change how the sensor captures the image.
- High resolution Just as your eye sees the finest detail in bright conditions, "Resolution Priority" uses the full 12 megapixel resolution of the unique EXR array to reproduce the smallest detail in bright beautiful color.
- Wide Dynamic Range Just as your eye sees the full range of shadows to highlights in high-contrast scenes, "D-range Priority" simultaneously captures two images to produce a single image with Wide Dynamic Range up to 800 percent, revealing subtleties in shadow and eliminating washout of the bright areas.
- High sensitivity and low noise Just as your eye strives to make dark scenes as bright and detailed as possible, "High ISO & Low Noise Priority" takes advantage of high sensitivity and FinePix's original pixel binning technology to capture the subject with exceptional brightness and minimal noise.

I followed this camera since announcement and have been eagerly awaiting its release here in Canada. After about a week, though, it's going back.
The big issues I have with the camera may not be of high priority to other people, but are particularly important to me. This camera, as others have said, is generally superb, and can take absolutely fantastic pictures with the best dynamic range available.
And one other positive which is important to me but not mentioned by a lot of other people is the flash recycling time is quite good, maybe 2 seconds.
Auto white balance is excellent too.
* Because this is to be a family camera, it has to be easy to use without really being educated about its functions. The full auto modes are not good enough - the EXR mode is loud and annoying, and both auto modes take pictures in ISOs that are not even remotely necessary. I don't need my wife taking ISO 1600 shots in decent indoor lighting at 1/60th of a second. That's not particularly helpful. It also prevents me from ever using most of the presets (snow, party, etc)
* While high ISO is obviously better than anything else in a compact, the camera needs it because the image stabilization is not as good as on Canons and Panasonics because it is sensor-based rather than lens based.
* I come from A series Canons, and the ability to set apertures and/or shutter speeds is sorely missed, particularly were auto ISO gives you 800 or 1600 more often than 200 unless outside in daylight.
* Video is important for us because with small children it is nice to have a video capabilities at all times and we don't carry around a video camera. Video capabilities on this camera kind of suck.
* A critical point for me, though not much I'm sure for a lot of others, is continuous shooting. Rarely do kids look the right way, so to be able to burst shots until you get the right one is very important to me. This camera can only do quick bursts at full resolution for 3 shots (or at least it only keeps the first or the last 3), and the full continuous shoot mode is painfully slow, I would say one shot every 1.5 or 2 seconds as it refocuses between each shot. That is not nearly good enough, and while the camera does have a (very) quick continuous mode, that takes shots at only 3 megapixels.
* The battery cover keeps opening up in my pocket. Not a huge deal, but at the same time, maybe it is...
So like I said, the camera is great at what it does, but its limitations may be important depending on your needs. Video, as noted by others, is bad. Photos, as noted by others, are superb, IF you are expert enough to learn and use the camera. As a straight point and shoot, the camera is not particularly good, as it boosts ISO way too much. And continuous shooting is, for me at least, unacceptably slow.
I really wanted to like this camera, and dynamic range is something I always really wanted, but the F200 EXR just doesn't work for me.
I am inclined to try the new Panasonic super zoom next (the ZS3/TZ7). I don't need a super zoom, and I understand Panny is coming out with a similar 5x zoom at some point, but I don't want to wait. I understand the ZS3/TZ7's burst mode is faster, the lens is wider (and better), and the video is HD. I also understand the Panasonic has excellent lens-based image stabilization, and much better battery life (though I never had a problem with the F200's battery life). While the Panasonic has fewer manual controls, it is supposed to have the best auto in the business. While I would prefer more controls, it is more important for everyone to be able to pick up and use the camera to produce quality shots than for me to be able to (and have to) play to get pretty pictures.
I think Fuji really missed the strike zone on this one. This camera with a better lens, better auto intelligence, and better video (and better continuous shooting for me at least) could have been a huge smash success that reinvigorated the Fuji brand for cameras. As it is, the camera is a tiny small step forward but big step to the side from their previous compacts. It's really too bad.
Hope this helps.
Before going into the many positives of this camera I want to express my only major negative with this camera and that is its ability to select the correct ISO setting for each shot. When shooting indoors in low to average light or when shooting with the flash the camera tends to choose a much higher ISO then needed resulting in shots with more noise then there should be. There is no reason for an image stabilized camera to select ISO800 with a shutter speed of 1/80 or faster when there is no movement in the frame. While this happens across all modes on the F200EXR it is more extreme in EXR Auto. I did a quick test with the camera taking two shots in P mode, EXR SN and EXR Auto seconds apart. P mode and EXR SN selected ISO200 while EXR Auto selected ISO400. In reality ISO100 would have been fine for this shot but the ISO200 shots still looked very good. I have even had shots where ISO400 would have been adequate but EXR Auto selected ISO1600! Thankfully in most modes you can set a max ISO to keep the setting better under control, EXR Auto is unfortunately always stuck in full Auto ISO. The one good thing to keep in mind here though is that the F200EXR's ISO400 performance is better then almost any other P&S out there so while it still might show some noise it will look almost as good as ISO200 on most of the cameras in its class. If EXR Auto is the main selling point for you then skip this camera. If you want one of the best cameras on the market right now then keep reading.
Now there are a lot of positives to this camera, many of which have already been discussed in other reviews so I won't go on forever about them. The screen is great and the camera feels solid in your hands. The menu system is a little strange but it's pretty easy to figure out once you get used to it. I am really just going to focus on image quality though. One of the best things about this camera is its EXR sensor that allows for 6MP images to be taken with low noise or increased dynamic range. While some may think 6MP isn't enough, don't believe the marketing hype. For 95% of the people out there 6MP is plenty and lower noise or increased dynamic range are far more useful then 12MP images. This lower noise is apparent across the board but is especially noticeable in how clean and detailed ISO400 and many ISO800 shots turn out on this camera. For web and 4x6 printing you will be hard pressed to find much difference in shots taken between ISO100 and ISO400 while in a true rarity for the class many ISO800 shots as well.
In my use I have found the secret to the best quality images from this camera is to avoid the EXR mode entirely and use P mode with the image size set to 6MP. While the instructions make it seem like the EXR sensor is only used when the mode dial is on EXR my results indicate that EXR is used anytime the image size is set to 6MP. For instance ISO100 with a DR of 400 would only be possible if EXR is used and this is possible in P mode (or M mode for that matter) as long as image size is set to 6MP. The setting I use for most shots is P mode, 6MP, DR set to Auto and ISO set to Auto (400). This keeps the ISO in a reasonable range and still allows the camera to take advantage of the EXR sensor. When shooting at night or in low light I will just adjust the ISO to Auto (800) to allow for a greater ISO range.
Overall I can't say enough positive things about this camera. Sure it would be nice if it had HD video or a higher resolution screen but those aren't required to take fantastic pictures. The automatic ISO performance is disappointing and the EXR Auto mode even more so but as I stated above there are plenty of work arounds. Sure the camera isn't perfect but I think for anyone willing to adjust some settings themselves will discover a P&S with some of the best all around image quality around.
