    Fuji 200 EXR images at dpreview.com

    They posted some images from both pre-production, production cameras including some comparisons of hr, dr, and sn modes.

    Perhaps a complete review is not too far off??

    Here's the link http://www.dpreview.com/gallery/fuji..._beta_samples/

    There's some nice stuff there, but I'm not yet convinced this camera is the miracle worker compact people were waiting for.

    Miracles are hard to do.

    I'd settle for some improved dr, and low light sensitivity.

    At least Fuji has recognized some of the problems with small sensor P&S, and has tried to address them.

    Hi, there!
    funny camera...
    downloaded pics and compared in photoshop...sensor with potential... but from optical stand point the corners are crappppy ;(...

    why they try to avoid optical laws.........

    why they don't release such cameras with little-bit larger but better optical elements.........

    with good glasssss even 6 mpix will be enought!!!

    does not really impress me. suspect the F31Fd or F30 would still do the same job for low light, and even has the same MP in low light.

    I have had the F31 and save for one image, the church, I feel the new camera does as well and perhaps better than my old f31 would've.
    Add SD card compatibility, IS, and a much more useful zoom range as well as being new and in-warranty, it appears to be a winner.
    And that is with pixel-peeping the original files

    I can see a place or niche for this camera. Not everyone wants to process RAW files and if it can squeeze some more dynamic range or NR from an in camera jpg by some creative uses of the CCD then I think its got a place in the market.

    As Lili mentioned you get IS and more zoom over the F31. The IS0 800 sample didnt look too bad IMHO, maybe the release firmware will be even better?

    The thing is that for this price you could get a LX3.

    The LX3 is far larger and has a less useful zoom range despite its speed.

    Is it obvious to everyone else how this camera takes 2 images at the same time?I dont quite get it.Or is it just taking one and inventing the other.

    I presume it sets half the sensors to as slightly different sensitivity. So the high dynamic range images are half the pixel size.

    wouldn't it be interesting if someone made a camera that had a prism in it to split the image into 3, so it could have 3 separate sensors each with one color filter and hence no need for bayer interpolation, and having 3 sensors instead one could improve dynamic range and sensor noise!

    I know they have done this with Video cameras, denoted with "3 CCD" but why not on a digital camera.

    In a way isn't that how a foveon sensor works?

    A Foveon sensor doesn't use a prism. The sensor has 3 separate layers each of which is sensitive to red, green, or blue light. The claimed advantage is that each pixel location will respond to the appropriate color of the subject without the need for Beyer interpolation.

    There are many discussions as to whether any significant improvement will be noted in color fidelity as compared to the Beyer pattern of photosites.

    Hope this helps.

    Im sure youre right Will,but as it can only take one image then the other is a copy using the unused sensors,if its a copy why not use the 12 and copy 12?Would be nice to see an explanation of all this.All will soon be revealed Im sure.
