Compared to... Fuji FinePix F31fd

Below you will find a studio comparison between the Fuji FinePix F200fd and its ancestor, the FinePix F31fd, at ISO 800. Here we see whether the SN mode of the F200 EXR can compete with the high ISO performance of the well-respected F31fd.

The F31fd was, for a long time, probably the best performing compact camera we'd encountered for shooting at ISO 800. Fujifilm promised the F200 EXR would improve on that performance, but doesn't appear to have quite delivered the goods. The F31fd is clearly producing a cleaner image and one that does a slightly better job of retaining fine detail. There's not a lot in it, though, so we'll now look at how the F200 EXR stacks up against a modern camera.
