Fujifilm seems to have missed the boat once more, releasing yet another incremental EXR camera that doesn't address the usability issues we've found with its predecessor. These problems aside, the EXR sensor is the selling point here; the user can choose
one of three modes that favor high dynamic range, low noise, or high
resolution. The low noise and high dynamic range modes reduce the
resolution, yet truly improve image quality. You can even leave the
camera on EXR AUTO, which will make these difficult decisions for you.
Also included are manual, aperture priority, and shutter priority modes. The F800EXR will be released at $349, twenty dollars cheaper than the F770EXR was, and exchanges the latter's GPS for built-in WiFi, which will allow you to wirelessly transfer photos to your iOS or Android phone as well as sites like Youtube and Facebook. Expect the same image quality, interface, and build discussed in our F770EXR review
. User reviews are actually pretty positive, but try it out before buying.
