Emily Raymond had her hands on the new Fujifilm FinePix F30, a 6.3 megapixels (super CCD HR Technology sensor) point and shoot digital camera with Fujinon 3x optical zoom (equivalent to 36-108mm) and a 2.5-inch LCD screen.
“With its flat body, there aren’t too many features to aid in handling. The F30 manages to squeeze in a few, however. On the front there is a polished wavy finger grip. The grip is skinnier than most fingers, so it is more of a highlight than a functional grip. The better feature is on the back. There are rubber bumps below the zoom toggle that really do grab and keep thumbs in place. There is no protrusion for a right-hand grip, so long periods of shooting could be uncomfortable. The Fujifilm F30 has decent handling for a compact model, though. “
