Summary: This is a great little camera. Can take good pictures with poor lighting or even bright backgrounds. It can be used close-up to photograph old photographs for good quality reproductions. A little gem.
Summary: best bang for the money, outstanding image quality
Pros: This little camera blows any compact digital camera away in terms of image quality. 6 MP might sound like not enough to newbies with no clue about digital cameras and sensors....do some research! This camera has outstanding high ISO capabilities and will blow any compact away @ ISO 200 and up.
Cons: Newer model out right now Fuji FinePix F31fd.
Finally - a camera that takes decent low light pictures

Summary: Cons are really a non issue. This camera is great.
Pros: Might not be the best camera on the market but if you are looking for a camera that takes excellent pictures in all lighting conditions including the dreadful lowlight = 'low quality' conditions, look no further!
Summary: Rob is totally clueless about digital photography... This camera wipes the floor with Canon SD series... Buy it, but only if you know what u're doing and if u can take the advantage oo camera's manual controls. Go to dpreview.com for a detailed review of F30 by a professional phtographer.
Pros: I think the guy from the previous review is really confused. Most people buy F30 for it's low light perfomance... This is the only P/S camera that rivals many DSLR's with it's 3200ISO. This camera is a gem for lowlight photography, iso range is very usable up until ISO1600, at 800 u see a slight ...
Pros: Great camera. This is my 4th digital and a backup for my Fuji S7000. I needed a small camera to carry in my vest pocket when in the field collecting rocks, minerals, gems, and relics. I was amazed at the performance and the quality of the photos. I did not think I could get this from such a small...
Cons: The cover over the USB and charger plug-in is very clumsy & flimsy to work with. It probably will eventually break off and be lost.
Summary: My wife and I had a baby recently and we wanted to get a point & shoot digital camera to replace an old Nikon 885 that is past it's prime. We wanted a camera that was small, fast, and not too much money (I have a Nikon D70 SLR that is my primary camera).
Summary: I bought this camera for my parents, who needed a good first digital camera. It's simple to use and takes fantastic pictures, especially in low light situations. Easy to set up and understand. They couldn't be happier with this gift.
Summary: I got this camera for my wife to replace a purse size Argus 35mm. My main goal was a easy to use point and shoot that weighed almost nothing. She is not a camera buff but wants great pictures. For her, this camera really hit the spot.
Summary: We also use the camera to shoot videos, and with a 1mb xD card, it shoots almost 16 minutes of highest resolution video footage...very nice added feature.
Pros: Great Low Light capture, very fast - seconds to grab camera, turn on, aim and shoot beautiful pictures. Plenty of menu features allowing very nice viewing options. Great Battery Life - took days of use before needing a re-charge.
Cons: Only 3X optical zoom, but thats all you get from cameras this size.
Summary: It's a great camera. I didn't want to buy another camera with an xD card (had a fuji before that was great and an olympus that took horrible pictures inside) but I can't praise this camera enough!
Pros: Bought the camera about a month ago and have already used it on longer shoots. I did a lot of research before buying it: it was between a canon sd600 or this fuji. I chose this mainly because it was cheaper than the canon and because the reviews were glowing. And they were true! The camera is fan...
Cons: 1. xD card - slower, more expensive and proprietary 2. takes somewhat ok pictures when lots of light in automatic mode (but play with the manual settings and/or the scenes and you'll get them bright and crisp) 3. it doesn't have "anti-shake" or real stabilization - however, because you'll need it...
