Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR / Fujifilm FinePix S205EXR review

It is a beautiful camera, with excellent Fuji optics. I particularly love the manual zoom lens. It does have very useful features, but its use isn't too friendly. It isn't bad, either. You have to learn to use it. Writing time is slow. The sensor is small for such a big camera. It is almost as big as a dSLR. Hence, images are comparatively inferior to those taken by a dSLR, BUT if you are not going to print them in a large size, you will never notice the difference. As a matter of fact, they look excellent on screen and in small to moderately large prints.


Changes of tone and color are sometimes capricious when using EXR mode in backlight. Particularly skin tone changes are noticeably. I suggest to take control and to set the controls of the camera once you've learned how to use it, instead than to let rhe camera decide what's best for you. It's a very felxible camera.
