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.
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.

Summary: I have worked with quite a few high-end point-and-shoot cameras during the course of a few years. This camera I feel I can give without hesitation 5 stars. This Camera takes awesome pictures with high ISO!! I have Panasonic LX-5 which is the best point and shoot camera anytime but this Fuji S200exr can take very sharp pictures with long zoom. The color and detail are just incredible. I love this camera and cannot say enough about it. Fuji is definitely the way to go!!.
Summary: I have had this camera for a month and must say it has turned out to be much Better than I expected,Fuji makes some cheap stuff but this model is Not one of them,It is the best bridge camera for the money PERIOD..nuff said..Now Buy it before it goes up in price even more!
