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

  • Excerpt: Certainly a camera small enough to fit in any pocket or purse and while it is supplied with a woefully inadequate memory card it does come with a case as standard.

  • Pros: Indoor photos, Photos at higher ISO levels, Build quality
  • Cons: Small built in memory
