Reviews and Problems with Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR

LOTS OF HYPE BUT DOES NOT DELIVER

Summary: This camera is no match for my f31fd camera which thankfully I still own and takes great pictures. I've found that the image stabilization on the f200exr is marginally effective. Anything above ISO 400 produces very visible grain. You have to work to get good images out of this camera.
Summary: We have owned a Fuji f3800 for 5+ years now and really like but it is beginning to show its age and needed a replacement. We wanted a comparable point-n-shoot that had good low-light picture quality in 'auto' mode.
Summary: I got this camera because it was touted as a great point and shoot camera for low light situations. Although it is a solid camera that can take good pictures, I don't really agree with this description.
Summary: Battery use is drastically affected in ers mode. Battery becomes warm and usage is shortened. Other than that big flaw, camera does well. Recall time/shutter speed is not as good as previous 800 series canon. Actualy canon has performed better and is better.
Does low light & high dynamic range well, but people look plasticky

Summary: I bought this camera for it's low light capability. It can do ISO 12800 which is amazing especially for a point-and-shoot, though the photos are (understandably) noisy. Unfortunately the camera doesn't provide RAW nor can you change the noise reduction, so everyone comes out looking plasticky.
Summary: After being completly satisfied with a Fuji F10 (which is now broken), I expected the newest Fuji chip and capabilities on the 200EXR [at a premium price] to really be an improvement, but this camera, so far, is a disppointment.
Summary: I have an unaccountable attraction to small point and shoot cameras, even though I have pretensions to being more than a casual photographer. And when I do get my hands on a point and shoot, I want to test its limits.
EXCEPTIONAL 'POINT & SHOOT' CAMERA - NOT SO EXCEPTIONAL LIFE SPAN

Summary: UPDATED March 2013: This camera served me well for just shy of four years. For no reason the other day, the LCD screen failed. The display is all "broken up" which basically makes the camera useless. The camera has not been dropped, hit into anything or exposed to extreme weather.
Summary: I don't mean for this to be an in depth review. There are a lot of truly excellent in depth reviews posted here already. I followed this camera since announcement and have been eagerly awaiting its release here in Canada. After about a week, though, it's going back.
