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: 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.
Fujifilm Finepix J30: Fujifilm FinePix J30 Digital Camera
2 October 2011
Summary: This camera was purchased from Amazon in 2009 for around £100. The box included; The camera, a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery and charger, a wristband, mini USB data cable, manuals and PC software. The camera has a strong build quality although being made of plastic, and the black glossy finish is very pretty. The screen is bright, detail and works well in all lighting conditions, which is good as this camera does NOT have a view finder.
Pros: Good value for money. Good photograph results. Good build quality.
Cons: Lack of manual settings. Average video quality . Poor battery life.
Fujifilm Finepix J30: Great fun for great fun days and nights out
21 December 2010
Summary: I needed a good quality camera that was easily portable for special occasions having become fed up of using my phone to take pictures. This fitted the bill perfectly especially at the price of £75. The camera has all the standard periphials that you would expect from one from this range such as an AC adapter, memory card and a recharger for your battery. What I like about this item is that it is easy yo upload photos using its USB cable too.
Excerpt: "...to be repaired. But Fujifilm replaced my camera with a newer version (JV100) instead of risking repairing it again for it to break again. I was quite pleased at this because we all like getting new items, but my new camera will never be as good as the J30, despite it breaking twice. ***Technical Information*** 12.2 MegaPixels 3x Optical Zoom 2.7" LCD Face Detection SR Auto (Scene Recognition Auto) You also get ...
Pros: Lightweight, compact, looks great, good pictures
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.
Summary: Choosing a point and shoot is always complicated because of the vast range available. We set a limit of between £50-£75 and the J30 fitted neatly into this slot. The order and delivery was quick. The camera is small but has a good sized back screen. The menu is very easy to navigate. The controls are obvious and not too small.
