Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR


Is this the best super-zoom camera of the year?

Manual 14.3x (30.5-436mm) lens ; Powerful flash ; Manual controls ; Great low light performance ; Electronic viewfinder

Large and heavy body ; Only VGA video ; Fixed monitor

Fujifilm has once again produced a superb feature-packed super-zoom camera that sets new standards for image quality and versatility, providing more control than most entry-level DSLRs. As a hobby photographer's camera the S200EXR is in a class of its...

Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR digital camera


With the trend of late for ever-larger zoom lenses crammed within ever more miniscule camera bodies, Fujifilm's new S200EXR – which offers a 14.3x optical variety – comes as a something of a shock. So does the Fujifilm S200EXR offer pretty much all...

Sturdy construction, intuitive operation, broad focal range allows for a wider variety of creative choices

Priced the same as an entry level DSLR (albeit cheaper than one coupled with a lens with the equivalent focal range), standard definition video

So does the Fujifilm S200EXR offer pretty much all that a DSLR does, whilst saving the need to swap lenses or invest in additional optics? No, but it gets a fair degree of the way there, the combination of Super CCD EXR sensor and bolted-on Fujinon...

Fujifilm Finepix S200EXR review


The S200EXR is the first bridge camera we've seen in a long time. Bridge cameras have controls and ergonomics to rival SLR cameras, but are built around small sensors similar to those found in compact cameras. They were once seen as a low-cost...

Performance could be better, but with SLR-like controls and exceptional image quality, this is the best ultra-zoom camera we’ve seen.

Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR review


With a layout that mimics a typical SLR's design, it offers superb handling, megazoom reach, advanced exposure control, and only a few minor disappointments.

The muscular zoom, wealth of exposure controls, smart layout, and good battery life make the Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR a strong contender for a spot in your camera bag.

Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR…


At 60,000 Yen (€459), Fujifilm still has some work to do when it comes to the basic GUI, LCD resolution and construction. A Bridge is not my favorite kind of camera, however the addition of EXR Technology on the S200 really improves it… If you're...

Fujifilm Finepix S200EXR bridge camera


Versatile superzoom with classic Fuji film emulation modes.

While a brighter lens would be desirable it would push the price far too high, however, this camera has some neat tricks to compensate in different environments. Nevertheless, the sort of user the S200EXR really suits is the nature and landscape...

Fuji FinePix S200EXR


The FinePix S200EXR is a bridge camera that's built to look like a Digital SLR (DSLR). It's packed with features from the 12MP Super CCD EXR sensor and 14.3x optical zoom lens down to its super-intelligent flash and anti-blur technology. You can frame...

The FinePix S200EXR has a practical design that’s closer to DSLR cameras than many of its rivals and it’s good fun to use for stills photography. Sadly, the underwhelming video performance renders this particular feature more of an intriguing novelty...

Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR


Bridging the gap between a compact and DSLR, superzooms combine much of the versatility of the latter in a smaller package, although the design is something of a compromise. With a physically smaller sensor, picture quality at high ISOs can't match...

The real stars of the show here are the sensor and lens. If we've any misgivings it's that the electronic viewfinder is no match for the detailed 2.7in screen below, although that now is no longer the flip-out type of the original S100FS. It's also...

FujiFilm FinePix S200EXR review


An impressive camera that disappoints by virtue of low-definition video.

EXR modes for dynamic range and low noise; 14.3x optical zoom with manual focus ring

EXR modes reduce image resolution by half; disappointing, standard-definition video

The muscular zoom, wealth of exposure controls, smart layout, and good battery life make the FinePix S200EXR a strong contender for a spot in your camera bag. This elegantly designed megazoom camera has a wealth of unique exposure options for serious...

Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR


Superzoom offers up innovative Super CCD EXR sensor

If you don't want the fuss or expense of changing lenses, the S200EXR offers an all-in-one solution with a focal range as broad as general-purpose photographers will need.
