Fujifilm FinePix F30

Camera Labs
1 November 2006
  • Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix F30 may have been available since early 2006, but still easily competes with the very latest compact digital cameras. It’s tough, handles well, offers a fair degree of creative control, delivers decent all-round image quality and performs impeccably under low light.
  • Pros: Good results at high ISO: 800 & 1600 are usable, Great battery life, Natural results with flash, Good build quality and quick handling
  • Cons: Not the slimmest compact around, Aperture and Shutter priority share dial position, On-screen tonal range sometimes limited, 3200 ISO pushes too far, but 1600 still good

Fujifilm FinePix F30 Review

Digitaltrends
25 October 2006
  • Excerpt: As denizens of DigitalTrends.com know, we liked the Fujifilm FinePix F10 reviewed a little over a year ago. That 6.3MP camera has gone to digicam Valhalla—in other words, it has sold out. In its stead, Fujifilm released the FinePix F30 with several new tweaks.
  • Pros: Spot on outdoor photos, Handles noise well at lower levels, Excellent battery life, Good shot-to-shot times
  • Cons: Fairly pokey in continuous shooting mode, Way too much noise at high ISOs (1600, 3200), More powerful zoom would’ve been nice, Uses more expensive xD Picture cards

Fujifilm Finepix F30 Review

What Digital Camera
23 October 2006
  • Summary: The F30’s appeal is as a pocket point-and-shooter for keen photographers – people who appreciate the value of good high ISO performance. Its qualities could be lost on the less tech-savvy buyer though, for whom a little more visual pizzazz wouldn’t have gone amiss.
  • Pros: Good, sharp, well-exposed results up to ISO 1600 and passable ISO 3200 (full resolution), fast, good hi-res screen, long battery life, robust metal body.
  • Cons: Slightly boring styling; unremarkable lens range (a 28mm wideangle would have been useful), no viewfinder, misleading ‘manual’ position.

  • Conclusion: The FinePix F30 offers a tantalizing glimpse of how very different compact cameras would be if all manufacturers put as much effort into developing sensor and processing technology as they do into designing and marketing pretty cameras with features no one ever asked for.

  • Cons: High contrast tone curve loses highlight & shadow detail - cannot be changed in-camera, Exposure inconsistencies (generally overexposure) using default settings, Purple fringing, 3-shot limit in continuous mode, Screen can be hard to see in very bright light, Limited manual controls, Auto mode de...

  • Excerpt: The Fuji FinePix F30 ($399) is the follow-up to the company's popular F10 and F11 models. Like those two cameras, the F30's claim to fame is its high ISO performance, which is unmatched in the compact camera arena.
