Bridge Camera Purchase For Hiking

I've been doing a good bit of reading and researching here about Fuji's bridge cameras. It seems to me that they have made more of them than everyone else put together!

I don't shoot for printing or to show to some art director or publication, just for me on my PC/tablets, so RAW isn't that important. I always carry a tripod and I do shoot a bit in low light so I am steering towards a BSI-CMOS sensor (does help with my Sony). Also, if I drop it over some rocks I won't be out that much money. New or used ok.

The ones that I have written down : S8300, SL1000 (really like this one), S8200, S8500, S8400W, S1, S9900W. I have read that the "S" models are somewhat budget built. Manual is a big plus, but if I can tweak other modes well enough that's ok. I don't need GPS or Wi-Fi.

Thoughts anyone? How does EXR-CMOS compare to BSI-CMOS in low light?
