Low light camera functionality is the most important advancement in point-and-shoots “since image stabilisation came along,” says Sir David Pogue. In his latest, he takes a look the Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR and the Sony DSC-WX1‘s handling of no-flash allowed situations.
While both handle low light pretty darn well (you can check that out for yourself in his gallery), he concludes that the Sony did better than the Fuji more times than not, and it also adds some cool features like a sweep panorama mode and a burst function.
The best part of the review: the video segment where Pogue and his buds go visit a psychic (it is very Mallrats minus the nipple part) and take pictures of her creepy spirit doll in the dim light. Having appeared in my fair share of Pogue productions, I’ve got to say that psychic should get a Pogie. [New York Times]
