Reviews: Imaging resource reviewed Fuji FinePix F30 and wrote:
"Despite some inconsistencies, the Fujifilm Finepix F30 offers the latest bold leap into high ISO shooting in a stylish compact digital camera. In most cases I wouldn't recommend shooting at ISO 3200, but that setting functions as well as it does on the F30 is a tribute to the engineers behind this camera. Shots at ISO 800 were some of the best I've seen from a camera in this class, which means you will get more out of your pictures under a variety of conditions with the F30. While I've preferred competing models with dedicated optical image stabilizers to the Anti-Blur/Picture Stabilization mode offered in the F30, this camera breaks new ground in offering effective expanded light sensitivity in a compact product. That's worth the price of admission alone."

"The FinePix F30 is a compact -- but not tiny -- camera made almost entirely of metal. It feels solid in the hand, and the important controls are easy to reach. I do with the camera had a metal tripod mount and a sturdier door over the memory card/battery compartment. On the back of the camera you'll find a large and sharp 2.5" LCD display. Fuji's made sure the screen is easy to see in bright outdoor light, including an anti-glare filter plus an instant brightness adjustment feature. The F30 lacks an optical viewfinder, though. The F30 has a pretty standard 3X zoom lens and a powerful flash that doesn't have too much of a redeye problem. The FinePix F30 has features for beginners and enthusiasts alike. There are plenty of scene modes, including the natural light mode that I described earlier. In case you're one of those "jump straight to the conclusion" people (and shame on you, if so), I would recommend using that scene mode only if you know that you'll be making smaller sized prints. Otherwise I'd probably adjust the ISO yourself so you can keep noise levels where you want them. Power users will like the almost full set of manual controls on the F30. You get aperture and shutter speed control, plus a custom white balance feature. The only things missing are manual focus and the ability to set the shutter speed and aperture at the same time. All F30 users will like its movie mode, which allows for continuous recording at 640 x 480, 30 frames/second (with sound)."

Amazon reviewed Fuji FinePix F30 and wrote:
"Ever run out of digital storage just at the wrong moment? Not with the F30. With 10 MB of built-in storage you'll never have to miss that special shot. Think of it as your internal insurance policy for those great, not-to-be missed photo opportunities. Amazingly easy to operate, all you have to do is switch-on the FinePix F30, and you'll be ready to shoot. Controls have been arranged for easy, fingertip operation giving you quick access to all the camera's great exposure modes and scenes. The full range of exposure modes includes auto, aperture-priority AE, shutter priority AE, manual, movie, picture stabilization, and scene position modes; plus, a generous selection of 15 preset scene positions that include underwater, sunset, snow, fireworks, party, museum and more. Whatever the situation, the FinePix F30 makes it a snap to get great results."

Steve's digicams reviewed Fuji FinePix F30 and wrote:
"The FUJINON 3x optical zoom offers a typical range for a consumer model. At its 36mm wide angle extreme, it provides a field of view sufficient enough for most interior and landscape shots, while it's 108mm maximum telephoto focal length is effective both for portraits and to bring your distant subjects a bit closer. Overall it helps the F30 produce nice sharp images, with small traces of chromatic aberrations (purple fringing) around highlights as well as moderate barrel distortion at wide angle, but virtually no pincushioning at the telephoto end. Image quality was very good for a 6-megapixel model in this price range. All of our samples were sharp and showed good color balance and saturation. The exposure system did well in most lighting situations, however it did tend to overexpose the sky on very sunny days. When shooting in marginal lighting, you'll be happy the F30 features an AF-assist lamp, which will allow you to focus on subjects in complete darkness. Its flash also has a powerful range of approx. 21.3 feet using ISO Auto. This is due to the camera's ability to us ISO speeds as high as 3200! Overall, I found this flash worked very well for your typical indoor people photos as well as a fill flash for outdoor portraits.
