Good points:
Lush camera. Sturdy design. So many different features means I pretty much dont need any additional lenses or filters at it is all editable afterwards in photoshop.
Bad points:
Flash does not travel too far so would advise on additional flash gun if doing photos of crowds at night during weddings etc.

John, Norfolk Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is a very sophisticated camera with many cutting-edge features.....and would have been perfect were it not for one major problem.....
Bad points:
The camera emits a continuous noise rather like a fan. Apparently it is the image stabilisation mechanism which operates constantly. I had assumed that it could be switched to only operate when a picture is being taken but having researched quite extensively on the internet I found that nobody has managed to stop it making this noise. For the occasional photo it would not be a problem....but if, like me, you keep the camera on permanently ( and in often quiet surroundings) for wildlife photography, the noise was both infuriating and an unhelpful constant companion.

Good points:
Great camera for the enthusiast
Great controls and handling
Excellent price
Bad points:
Rear LCD does not articulate like S100
To wake up from sleep you have to turn the camera off for a second then turn it back on - most other SLR type cameras will wake from any button

Easy to use, but still learning; many features identical to earlier models, so very familiar if you've had a Fuji before
Bad points:
Disappointed with build quality; feels very plastic! full instructions only available on supplied CD

David, Nottingham Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I bought this as an upgrade to my Fuji FS6500 as it offers 12Mpix (over 6 - better for cropping) improved noise at low light levels, and Optical Image Stabilisation. So far I am happy with all three 'improvements'. In the hand it feels very much like the FS6500 which means I forget I am using a new camera and 'go for' the wrong button!
Bad points:
It is bigger and a little heavier than the FS6500, and wide angle end of the zoom is not as wide at 30.5mm (v 28mm) 25m equiv.

Good points:
As near as you can get to a SLR. It is a large camera but I like this as the controls are less fiddly and it feels right. Will report back later on the results and performance

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The Fuji Finepix S200EXR is an advanced digital camera with a number of features only found on a small number of other Fuji digital cameras. The basic specification includes a 12 megapixel sensor and a 14.3x optical zoom lens. As you dig deeper you will find a set of manual exposure controls including aperture priority and shutter priority. Manual focusing is available too. You can also save your photos in RAW mode.

When it comes to handling there are a number of similarities between the Finepix S200EXR and a Digital SLR. Zoom is controlled by a twisting lens barrel and manual focus is set in the same manner. There are a number of quick access buttons on the top, back and side of the camera. These are used in conjunction with a selection wheel to speed up the process of changing key settings.

The EXR part of the camera name relates to further technology that marks the Finepix S200EXR out as something different to the competition. The EXR mode gives you access to functions that help to increase the amount of detail shown in light and dark areas of a photo. Other settings can help to decrease noise. You also need to be aware that for these features to work the resolution you shoot at is halved. There is also a Pro Focus setting that throws the background of a shot out of focus in order to highlight the main subject of a picture.
