Great camera for the money, slightly better than the S100FS which i also have, saves on carrying around loads of lenses, arguably better than a lot of DSLR. Problems: None.

I opted to migrate from DSLRs to bridge cams so that my choice was Fujifilm S200EXR. Photos came out same or better than many DSLRs with no hassle, no difference at all. My opinion is that no sensor matches Fuji's CCD. Comparable would be FF sensors, however, why paying for a FF to use raw and then photoshop ? My prognostic is that in the near future digital DSLRs will no longer be of any interest once digital pics did not yet reach the quality of the 35mm analog films. So better buy a good ...

I bought the s200exr as a 'companion' for my Panasonic LX3. Both have about the same size sensor (approx. 16mm diagonal). Until recently I had to to to carry a bag with two SLR bodies beside four prime lenses (24 to 200mm), a mid- range zoom, an x1.5 converter and a 35mm compact. Now I cover all my requirements with just those two pieces of kit! The S200exr is a great camera to use. With really nice pics it gets my full approval. Problems: No problems so far .

I use this camera every day to take macro picts of jewelry. I find that the quality of the picts are very good. I have had lots of complements on them. Being a goldsmith and not a professional photographer, I need to get the picts quickly and process them for the web site. Fuji film has 2 levels of macros. They are indispensable. Good Value. <href http://gothc.net/index.php?option=com_expose&Itemid=54</href> Problems: None so far. the battery life has not been an issue. I have dropped ...

First of all this is NOT Dslr Quality ... but its the best superzoom that is currently offered. Fujifilm likes to compare it to a DSLR but if falls short on several issues obvious to anyone who owns a DSLR. Colors are striking if not realistic. Folage on landscape shots lack some detail. Much slower than DSLR so not for sports or fast action. However it can be very good for wildlife because there is no shutter sound. It's just a great fun superzoom that does not have a rival in this category. ...

I have found the S200EXR to be a very good introductory level camera. As with any camera in this class, it fits the need for someone looking to step up from a small point-and-shoot, yet not quite ready to move to a DSLR. You can get the feel for handling a camera of DSLR size, plus all the adjustments and functionality are approximately the same, you don't have to worry about purchasing extra lenses, swapping lenses and of course cleaning/maintaining the sensor. The overall sensitivity, ...

SHAME on FUJI !!! they advertised this S200EXR as the improved F100S but they shrinked the sensor ,it's tiny ,pocket camera type sensor , how can they put all this great new technology in a tiny sensor , it's wasted !! nowhere is mentioned that they went back to the tiny sensor of the s9100 they hoped nobody noticed , after I noticed the quality was so poor I went to look at the specs and was surprised they changed to the smaller sensor , WHY ? I already own the s9100 and was happy ...
