Fujifilm FinePix F30 | Digital Camera Review | Camera
The Fujifilm FinePix F30 camera is not exactly an eye-catcher, but then why should it be? It is a well made and beautifully finished digital camera. That's also how the Fujifilm FinePix F30 feels; despite its compact format it feels good in your hand. The basis of the casing is also metal, which looks trustworthy. During the trial, we noticed something strange – it seemed as if the FinePix letters on the camera faded quickly, even though we didn't do anything out of the ordinary with the camera. Maybe this was just a one-off misprint?

Fujifilm F30 - Fujinon 8-24mm lens
On the front of the Fujifilm F30 camera, is the Fujinon 8-24 mm f/2.8 - f/5.0, a lens with a triple optic zoom, equivalent to 36 - 108 mm in a 35mm camera. A metal edge to the left of the lens acts as a sort of handgrip. Below it to the right is a small microphone for making sound recordings. On the far upper right there is an inbuilt flash above the auto focus assistance illuminator and the indicator for the self-timer.

Fujifilm FinePix F30 - Lithium Ion battery
On the right hand side of the Fujifilm FinePix F30 digital compact camera, there is the connection for the mains energy supply and the Audio/Video exit behind a small flap. The Lithium Ion battery must be charged in the camera and a separate battery charger is not supplied. On the other side of the camera there is just an eyelet for the camera strap. If we turn the camera around, we can see a large flap on the bottom, behind which the Lithium Ion battery and the xD-Picture flash memory card can be placed. There is a plastic tripod connection but this probably won't be used often.
Fujifilm F30 - Main switch & Select switch
There are only three buttons on top of the Fujifilm F30 digital compact camera. The button furthest to the left is the main switch. It reacts quickly when pressed, but gives enough resistance to prevent the camera switching itself on accidentally, which gives you a safe feeling when you are carrying the camera around in your bag. In the middle is a select switch with several main programs. You can choose from several modes, more than with the FinePix F11 and this makes the Fujifilm FinePix F30 also suitable for more demanding users. Finally, to the right is the release button. This also has a good press point and practically no shutter delay.

Fujifilm FinePix F30 - LCD screen
A large screen with a diameter of 2.5 inches dominates the back of the camera. To the right of the LCD display there are some operating elements, such as the zoom button at the top. In the middle is the familiar four way switch with the Menu and OK button in the middle. With the main switch, you can operate in clockwise fashion the clarity of the screen, the flash settings, the self-timer and the macro pictures. Around this round button are four more buttons. These are for viewing the pictures, the familiar F button, exposure correction and screen reproduction. It all looks well ordered and in regard to ergonomics it is a user friendly concept.
