FujiFilm S200EXR Lens features

The S200EXR houses an inbuilt lens having a focal range of 31-436mm making it a 14.1 x zoom which is great and can allow you to zoom right in.

At it's widest 31mm, it offers an aperture of f2.8 which is quite sluggish and not ideal in low light circumstances and you will likely find it hard to capture a shallow depth of field. You will also have to boost your ISO setting which causes noisy photographs. Towards the long end, 436mm is brilliant zoom and comes to f5.3 which is pretty slow and you may have to use slow shutter speeds.
