I am finding that when I take photos with my Fuji in low light (e.g. indoors, sunsets) even with the ISO set to 200, they come out very "grainy" and speckley (if that's a word ??).
Is this a limitation with the Fuji, or with digital, or just a problem with any type of photography ?
Please excuse my ignorance - any enlightenment would be appreciated

Noisy is the term. Yes, it does that :-(
But, it's not alone...
This was shot at 200 ISO (view at 100%).
Should not be that bad,could you post us an example?.
Thanks guys ...
is a prime example and the photo I'm having problems with at the moment - this is just a section of the photo !
Sillyconguru ... I see your problem, but with your pic it's quite fine grain ... with mine it's very rough and pixelated
The Fuji's tend to do that, it could be a product of the pixel layout or the underlying technology. They tend to do that more than other brands IMHO. Mind you you have zoomed in a bit have you not. How does it look printed at say A4 size.
This site should let you compare images from similar cameras. I think the photo's show the issue you are talking about. In comparison the Canon S1 shows much less noise. We tested the two cameras back to back and found the same.
Can you run it at lower ISO? The canon is good at ISO 50 and 100 but falls off rapidly as you go higher.
As John said, Fujis do that, especially the S5000 (I have one, and it does).
You can see the artifacts here.
Thanks so much for the replies - it's nice to know that it's not just something I'm doing wrong ! Strawman, 200 ISO is the lowest the Fuji S500 has.
Thanks for the links, Sillyconguru - very interesting !
I guess I will just have to ensure that I'm shooting in adequate light until I can afford the Canon that I'm going to buy one day
