Fuji FinePix S200EXR Review

Review posted 11/2/2009

Included on the FInePix S200EXR isFuji's new Super CCD EXR image sensor that Fuji claims to be even closer to a human eye. With a new arrangement of the color filter mosaic with large pixels that are closer together, the camera is capable of increased image size with increased sensitivity. This allows the camera to operate in 3 different modes: High Resolution, Wide Dynamic Range and High Sensitivity. The new EXR Auto combines the camera's auto scene recognition with the cameras ability to automatically change the CCD mode for the particular scene.

To assist and control the new sensor is the camera's specially designed image processor. This controls the sensor by emitting an advanced electric charge, allowing for the capture of colors that are more natural and quicker processing with faster continuous shooting, all at higher resolutions. This new processor can also automatically align several exposures for the cameras Multi-Frame image modes.

Making sure that this is the only camera that you will need to carry is the 14.3x optical zoom lens with Lens-Shift image stabilization. The 14.3x zoom has a 35mm equivalent of 30.5-436mm, allowing for the capture of vast landscapes to great telephoto close-ups. This lens also has the ability to focus on a subject from as close as one image, making it great for extreme close-ups as well.
