Another exciting feature of the Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR is EXR Auto which takes the guesswork out of setting the camera by doing everything for you
. EXR Auto is essentially a very sophisticated set of program modes. The camera can automatically detects from six different types of scenes – Portrait, Landscape, Macro, Backlit Portrait, Night, and Night Portrait.
The FinePix S200EXR offers five film simulation modes – the Velvia/Vivid mode for rich and luscious landscapes; the PROVIA/Standard mode for excellent, sharp, standard photography; the ASTIA/Soft mode for soft, fine, smooth tonality; the Black & White mode captures the dramatic honesty of your image in black and white; and the Sepia mode creates a sense of nostalgia with the warm brown “antique” tones of Sepia.
The EXR sensor automatically adjusts itself to optimum settings depending on the light. When the light is strong and even, the camera can be switched to HR (High Resolution) mode to ensure every small detail is captured. When light is strong but contrast, the sensor can switch to DR (Dynamic Range) mode to get the optimal balance between highlight and shadows. In low light the sensor will switch to SN (High Sensitivity and Low Noise) mode, to ensure clean noise-free pictures even in the darkest conditions. The ultra-high precision Fujinon lens achieves maximum resolution at all focal lengths of 30.5mm-436mm equivalent with maximum aperture of a bright F2.8 (wide angle) to F5.3 (telephoto). Because of the composite body and lens structure, there is no need to worry about dirt or dust on the Super CCD EXR sensor.
In the FinePix S200EXR, an identical effect, Pro Focus Mode, is created using new Multi-Frame Technology. A burst of 2 or 3 frames is taken, and by taking the distance information off, the main subject is crisply matted against a defocused foreground and background. Pro Focus Mode is perfect for portrait or nature photography. Meanwhile, Pro Low-light Mode is applied to solving the problems of noisy low light shots. Once switched to Pro Low-light Mode, the camera will take burst of 4 high sensitivity images using Pixel Fusion Technology in quick succession. Owing to the Multi Frame Technology, the first, second, third and fourth images are overlapped to create one image with extremely low noise.Other features of the FUJIFILM FinePix S200EXR include the intelligent flash, high contrast 2.7 inch LCD that’s viewable even in bright light and at 160 degree angle, multi bracketing, dual image stabilization, face detection with automatic red-eye removal etc.The Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR camera is available in India for an MRP of Rs. 32,999/-.
