Summary: I unwisely sold my Fuji S200EXR digital zoom camera a few years ago and immediately regretted it. Happily, I recently acquired another because I do not like many of today's cameras without optical viewfinders. Optical viewfinders conserve battery life and help with focusing in situations where glare is a problem. Camera focal lengths have increased to ridiculous lengths since the S200EXR was introduced in 2009.
Summary: This was my first superzoom camera and I was very pleased with it. The picture quality was second to none and many shots rivaled that of a DSLR. It doesn't have the zoom capability of the newer superzooms, but the picture and build quality are tops.
Camera is a bargain for advanced amateurs and some professionals

Summary: I have three of these cameras now. Over the years I have owned many cameras. The Fuji200EXR is a terrific camera. I'm surprised Fuji cancelled it, but it makes this camera available at an attractive price. Fuji doesn't offer a lens hood for this camera, but the lens hood for the S100fs fits perfectly and is available on the Fuji website.
Summary: BEEN USING FUJI CAMERA'S FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS AND THE PHOTO'S AND COLOR ARE TOPS. STARTED WITH THE FUJI S5500 THEN THE S9000,S6000,S100FS AND FINALLY THE S200EXR. COMPARING THE S100FS TO THE S200EXR THE PHOTO'S WERE CLOSE BUT THE S200EXR HAD BETTER DYNAMIC RANGE. THE S100FS WAS SLIGHTLY BETTER IN LOW LIGHT.LAST CHRISTMAS PURCHASED THE CANON T3I DSLR WITH 2 LENSES AND TOOK THE CANON AND THE FUJI S200EXR ON A SHOOT-OUT AND THE FUJI IMAGES WIPED THE FLOOR WITH THE CANON.
Summary: This is a great camera for the casual photographer stepping up from a simple point and shoot camera, but not yet ready for SLR. It is complicated and takes a while to learn, but it is well worth the effort. I purchased the camera for landscape photography and for photographing items to be put on my Ruby Lane store. It does both tasks very well. At the price I paid, it is a tremendous bargain.
Excerpt: Pros: Large super CCD has better image quality than newer models like HS10/20. Lens has no soft corners and has OPTICAL Image Stabalization. It is also a manual twist barrel zoom for precise control. Better than most dynamic range thanks to Super CCD EXR sensor arrangement. Fuji Colors! Good control layout. Good Image qualtiy up to 1600ISO. 3200ISO usuable for small print. Raw format available (RAF). SDHC comaptible ( No stupid XD cards.) 1/4000 max shutter speed.
Summary: I've loved this camera for the most part for close to two years now, though on the con side, the macro isn't great and the exposure and focus won't cooperate in low light. Now, my Fujifilm s200exr camera won't turn "on". For about two months, I had to turn it "on", "off" and then "on" again to get it to turn "on", but just dealt with this quirk.
Summary: An excellent camera, solid body and excellent picture quality once one has mastered the handling of this camera. A bit pricey but worth it in the end. Although I have had the camera for well over 6 months I have yet to fully utilize all the camera's features. It's one of the best and hardest to learn camera I have owned to this date.
Excerpt: I've had a number of Fujifilm cameras over the years (A303, E550, S5100 to name a few) and they've always performed well, as long as you understood the limitations and compensated for them. 200 EXR is no different. I've had this model for a while now and here is my 2 cents. First of all, there are some who b%@tch about the shrinking of the sensor size from 2/3 (S100FS) to 1/1.6 (200 EXR); if you do the math, the difference is about 7%, not a significant decrease versus...
