The 6.3 mega pixel Fujifilm F30 point and shoot digital camera is sleek enough to fit in a bag or coat pocket. This is one of the first consumer cameras to offer amazingly high ISO speed of 3200. Optical image stabilization is not provided in the camera. The company feels that with high ISO speeds, the image stabilization feature is not required. The review by CNet indicates that 3x optical zoom supported in this camera is insufficient. Considering the ability of the camera to capture images indoors with low light, the reviewer is of the opinion that 4x zoom would have been more appropriate. Sports photographers will appreciate the continuous shooting modes in F30. In movie mode, F30 captures JPEG 640x480 pixels video at 30 frames per second with mono sound. The 2.5 inch LCD display provided in the camera performs well even at low illumination levels. According to this review, the noise levels are negligible up to ISO 200 level. The noise is predominant only at ISO 3200 level.

The Laptop review also considers the ability to take pictures at low illumination levels without the need for the flash as the most attractive feature of F30. The images produced are quite sharp. The review points out that skin tones have a slight pinkish tinge. The LCD with 2848 x 2136 pixel resolution is quite impressive as noted by this review. F30 supports a picture stabilization mode which automatically selects the shutter speed on the basis of the ISO level to reduce the blur in the captured image. As per the review, this useful feature needs refinement as it produces inconsistent results. A review by Steves-Digicams highlights the ability of an amateur photographer to take professional quality pictures using the technology provided in F30 camera. This camera produces sharp pictures with lower noise levels when compared to other brands in the same range. All the reviews are liberal in appreciating the ability of F30 to take pictures under very dull light conditions and consider this as a breakthrough in digital camera technology.
