Neocamera just published its full-review of the Fuji Finepix F200 EXR. This is the new flagship ultra-compact digital camera from Fuji and features their new – and absolutely unique – SuperCCD EXR sensor. This particular sensor provides 3 modes of operation: 12 megapixels high-resolution mode 6 megapixels low-noise mode and 6 megapixels high-dynamic-range mode. These modes are possible due to a special arrangement of pixels and other technical wonders. Read the full-review to find out if it lives to expectations.
The Fuji Finepix F200 EXR features an impressive feature-set for an ultra-compact, including a wide-ange 5X optical zoom lens with image stabilization, manual and aperture-priority exposure, adjustable dynamic-range and ISO sensitivities up to 3200 at full-resolution (12800 at lower resolutions).
Due to the various modes of the F200 EXR, this review contains more crops and samples than usual, most of them taken in one of the camera’s special modes. This review also contains an extra page comparing crops of the Fuji F200 with the Nikon D90. Though certainly not without contraversy, this is designed to illustrate the remaining image quality difference between a state-of-the-art ultra-compact and a modern DSLR.
Getting frequent feedback from digital camera owners it happens that the number one request this year has been for ultra-compact with excellent low-light performance. Many peope buy a DSLR because it has such high image quality but end up feeling that it is too cumbersome and finally buy an ultra-compact digital camera.
