Fujifilm FinePix Z30 Reviews

HS reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z30 and writes;
“Even though the camera takes fair photos, pictures from FujiFilm’s other point-and-shoot camera, the A150, shine in comparison. The Z30 is meant to be a real point-and-shoot camera but the lack of manual controls may frustrate some users. Unless you are enamored of the bright colors, you will want to stick to the similarly priced A150.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z30 and writes;
“The Fujifilm FinePix Z30 is a fun little camera designed to be more a fashion accessory than a photographic tool. Overall build quality is good, but the fiddly controls and slippery shape make it hard to use, and the mediocre performance and poor image quality are also disadvantages. There are better cameras available for the same price. “

CNET.au reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z30 and writes;
“Unless you’re a social networking addict and child of the YouTube era, you won’t find much use for the FinePix Z30. The novel aspects don’t make up for the clunky buttons, slow performance and noisy images at all. …”

PCWorld reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z30 and writes;

Fujifilm FinePix Z30 User Reviews

Love it | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Got this just the other day. Love that’s it’s small and takes good pictures. Only bad thing is the pause between pictures. But we can deal with that.” – by Cherly

All in all, not bad… | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Just received this camera for my teenage granddaughter so I charged up the battery, set the camera to its highest and best settings, installed a 4GB SD card and took some sample pictures and a sample video. The picture taken outdoors was very good, sharp, clear and colorful. The picture taken inside using the flash was more grainy than it should have been as compared to my other cameras of this general P/S type, hence the loss of a star. The video this camera takes is another story, its first rate, clear, colorful, and very smooth with very good sound. Its a good camera, not great, but very small and easy to operate..” – by Floyd

    This is a good camera for the price. It is simple to use and takes clear, crisp pictures. Also, the battery life is good. And the price makes it affordable to take good pictures.
