Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix Z30 is designed to be more a fashion accessory than a serious camera. Build quality is good, but the fiddly controls and slippery shape make it hard to use, performance is mediocre and image quality is poor.
Summary: Although meant as a fashion statement, this camera comes off looking a bit too much like a toy, especially in the bright colors. Although the camera is nicely compact, that compactness seems to have adversely affected the camera’s everyday functionality.
Excerpt: While few look for performance and features as the foremost factor when purchasing a compact camera, the first impression's almost always made by the way the camera looks. In that respect, the Fujifilm FinePix Z30, would be one of the first to catch your eye, with its dazzling, bright colors.

Summary: The Fujifilm Finepix Z30 is a cute compact camera let down by its inflated price tag and terrible user interface. There are plenty of better options on the market, some of which are decidedly cheaper.
Pros: Cute and compact design, lens slider, some interesting shooting modes
Cons: Ghastly user interface, minor imaging issues, did we mention the ghastly user interface?
Conclusion: Fashion over functionality is the focus here, but the Z30 has the potential to be a smart little shooter. Simplified options mean less hassle for photographers happy to point and shoot, but disappointment may reign for those craving more creative control.
