Excerpt: I was looking for a really small camera and I bought Fujifilm Finepix Z30 solely because of its ultra compact size. It is indeed my first Fuji camera. The camera has a 2.7-inch LCD screen and features 10 megapixel and 3x optical zoom--basic features you could expect from most digital camera though 3x zoom to me is not sufficient. What caught my attention besides its size was that it's available in a variety of rainbow colors. Mine is purple.
Summary: This camera was given to me as a birthday gift in 2010 (was NOT bought through Amazon)... I was happy with the camera! I loved the big screen and rubber buttons. The picture quality was ok (sometimes pictures were grainy). On Christmas of 2011 I got my camera out to take a picture of my brother by our Christmas tree...I turn the camera on and all I see is a a white screen.
Summary: I like the easy functioning of the camera. The only glitch I had was loading the software on my laptop. The cd that comes with the camera only had software compatibility up to Windows Vista and of course, I would have Windows 7. It was remedied by going onto Fuji's website, pulling up the link for updating the software to Windows 7, installing it and everything has been working fine ever since.
Summary: I got the white and black edition of this camera, and I really love the stylish look of it. Wben I first opened the package though, I was a bit taken aback by the small size of this camera. It's hardly bigger than the palm of my hand. I guess, I had been so used to my old camera(and I mean really old), that this Fujifilm camera seemed tiny in comparison. I have gotten used to it now, and I love the fact that it's small enough to fit in your jeans pocket.
Summary: Bought the White One when it was first released about a week and a half ago, For the price its actually a pretty nice camera but, kind of unreliable on the photos it takes some come out ok and some don't. Some of the photos had bubbles in them. Over all its a ok basic point and shoot camera but I will be returning mine tomorrow, not really what I was looking for.
Summary: I purchased this camera because of it's small size. It is easy to carry in my purse or in my pocket. It doesn't take the best quality pictures, but it's not bad. It's easy to use and easy to load the pictures onto my computer. Overall, it's a good camera for the price.
Summary: BAD - if you wana download pics you need to open battery door. (connector is inside. and i download pictures very often) - if you wana recharge battery you need to open battery door to pull the battery out (i expected it can be recharged with USB) - if you wana get or put memory, you need to open battery door... I think that door is gona DIE in 2-3mnth GOOD - nice looking - has manual mode - nice looking - 10 Mp - good movie modes - do i need face detection..
Summary: I love this camera, but the only thing I don't like about it is its very short time to video record, the highest you get (I'm not sure if this is because of the memory card i have) is 3 minutes, 1 second. Don't expect to take any good YouTube videos with this thing !
Pros: Love the colors, decent pictures, nice shiny coat, sliding power button, nice display, cool slideshow feature.
Cons: Buttons are a little close together, average quality pictures, short video recording time.
Summary: Die Finepix Z von Fujifilm ist eine durchaus altagstaugliche, stylishe Kamera für jedermann. Man kann so gut wie immer mit guten und scharfen Bildern rechnen. Sie hat viele Zusatzfunktionen und es gibt sie in vielen verschiedenen Farben.
