@ bluzfrek

This site below by Dave Lloyd may help... He owns and uses the S100FS
and the the HS10... He doesn't have the S200EXR but he does have an
F200EXR which uses the same sensor, I believe...

http://eyemindsoul.blogspot.com/

There are many tips and tricks at this site for all of these cameras as well
as plenty of examples of what you can expect from them... Just look down
the right side of the page for many of his tutorials, etc...

Hope that helps...

EDIT:
One thing to be aware of is that though the S100FS and the HS10 are both
supported by Adobe regarding RAW the S200EXR (I believe) is not, if RAW is
important to you...

Wow! Thanks for all of your responses, and the fantastic pictures. Looks like either camera will produce excellent pictures, and each one have the handy, and not so handy, features. I do appreciate the input, it all helps tremendously, except now I might have to look into a S100FS, also. lololololol.

I really like that moon shot, Eddie...!

You did great...!

Oh, and I agree about the screen... It really helps when you're shooting something
down low or if, like in your moon shot, you've got it pointed at an extreme angle as
it saves your neck...

exactly! Better sensor like imagine the s100fs on a 30x. be really nice upgrade.

Well....I add one more "observation" then its up to you to decide, alone.
No camera will satisfy your every desire, I know of none. A P&S leaves you locked on to pretty much "out of the box" capabilities, but that is quickly changing.
I have noticed more people refer if the HS10 had the sensor, it would be the camera to have, as opposed to the other way around. Yes, it has a lot of tricks, but if you don't use them, do you really need them?
I think you really need to determine what you will use the camera for, and that criteria should trump. Remember too, all the money in camera R & D is in the P & S market, that is where all the sales are, if you can wait a few months till spring, after the winter push and shows, you might have other choices as well.....just a thought. And, honest, one final thing....you must remember the nature of man, we will "honestly" give you our best recommendation, but it will be prejudiced.....anybody who says not, well, an old adage comes to mind,
"A person lies the loudest, when he lies to himself....."
Ask the question, Ford or Chevy.....good luck on finding a unanimous consensus

Did I mention how great that 30x zoom is for getting that normally out of reach shot?

I said It would be a really nice upgrade. Not a must have! You are right saying "No camera will satisfy your every desire."

Default S200exr vs. S100fs?

They are both excellent cameras. Here's some back and forth between those cameras to, uh, help you decide?

S200EXR


S100fs


S200exr with killer lighting (as in no harsh sun):


S100fs:


S100fs (Digital Zoom):


So, you've decided now, right? Come on, that EXR squirrel rocks, doesn't it? Still, they are very competitive, excellent cameras whichever you choose. Sorry, I don't have HS-10 shots to throw in the mix.

OK, OK, One more EXR squirrel to help you decide:
S200exr squirrel:
