Excerpt: Smaller and more pocketable than I expected, the J30 serves a definite role: It's the camera that I have with me everywhere. It is the size of a mobile phone. The 12 megapixel resolution is helpful ... but only in good light. The battery seems to last pretty long once fully charged. You buy this camera for one reason: Portability. Problems: In low light the image is very noisy. The LCD display's image includes some aberration on the left edge and there's one bad pixel.
Summary: I had this camera for years until it unfortunately broke a while back. I loved everything about this camera and was gutted when I had to buy a new one. This camera was great and very sleek-looking, with lots of different options and setting. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Summary: This little camera has always worked well, the flash is bright and the anti red eye works, it is OK for close up work, not as good as my EOS but very good. It could perhaps do with better optical zoom for panoramas.....much better than any phone cam, except maybe the 41MP sensor on the latest Nokia, I don't use one of them so I can't say.
Summary: Ordered this camera as a Christmas present. Camera arrived from UK to Slovakia just in 5 days! Perfect! Also in Czech menu, which was superb because person who was present for doesnt speak English. Thank You very much.
Decent, affordable camera, but very poor at night photos

Summary: I used this camera in Vietnam in 2010 and The USA in 2011. It's compact and easy to use but the zoom is only 3x which is quite restricting. Navigating the the menu is easy - the process of selecting and deleting unwanted images, changing modes and supressing the flash is simple and clear. The daytime photos were very good for a cheaper camera - the three stage panoramic mode is easy to use and effective when stitching three photos together.
Summary: Bought it for my girlfriend. She was needing something simple to use, so that she could just point and shoot. This was it, the picture quality is brilliant, and there are no over complicated features.
