A little magical camera
5 January 2012
Summary: This was purchased more than a year ago based on one compelling reason, which was, and still is, its larger small sensor (1/1.6"). The size of its EXR sensor is the same as the F200EXR's sister product, S200EXR, and is still larger than the most current F series product (the F600EXR, which is only 1/2"). It is because of this very reason, I bought one, but had not used it until recent months because I was mostly using my DSLR (Nikon D90).
Summary: I already own a Digital SLR, but needed a more compact and light digital camera which I can carry around and bring to occasions which I don't need the power of DSLR, but want better picture quality than mere phone cameras. This one was my final choice, and I bought it at Oct.10.2010. I carried this camera along by San Francisco trip. Overall, I am satisfied. It is compact and light enough to carry around. It produces decent images with lots of modes.
F200EXR - a great automatic camera for photographers
4 July 2010
Summary: How I use the F200EXR: Set the mode dial to "EXR" then press the "Menu" button and set the "Shooting Mode" to "D-Range Priority". Now press the "F" button and set "Dynamic Range" to 400%. This switches the F200EXR from 12Mpel to 6Mpel and lets it capture images with higher dynamic range. Do you remember shooting film? Press the "F" button and select a "Film Simulation Mode" : Provia (standard), Velvia (vivid), Asita (soft), B&W, Sepia Enjoy the camera.
Summary: I've always been disappointed with the results of my former waterproof point & shoot cameras. They deliver everything but the photo quality I was hoping for. I finally decided to get the F200 plus the waterproof housing for it and I was amazed with the results. Now I get the image quality I want for both in and out of the water.
One of the top two cameras that easily fits in your pocket

Summary: I bought this camera because it offers the best image quality and still fits easily in your pocket. The sensor is bigger than most compacts-- the same size as the sensor in the Canon G10/11, which allows for better image quality with less noise. The pixel bining approach is very creative and it works well. In high resolution 12MP mode, the resolution is very very good. The DR (dynamic range) mode is very effective in avoiding blown-out highlights or overly dark areas.
Excerpt: I've purchased the F200 for about a month ago and made hundreds of pics. All I can say, that IQ is very good. Just as good as my S9600 that has a brighter bigger lens. It is indeed sharper and clearer than my S9600. EXR mode is useful but not that much, still, DR and HR modes are excellent. SR mode needs further development I think. Construction is great. It is a quality product made of good material. Purple fringing is well handled (almost none).
Excerpt: I find this camera to be the best value at the moment of march of 2010. Canon S90 two times more expensive and doesn't have that truly amazing dynamic range wich set this camera completely apart from others. Purple fringing seems not a problem for lens, that was a proble for F30. Well done Fuji - idea about exr ir great, keep developing it. I would recomend to make a little bit bigger sensor in real terms and faster lens, less zoom range.
