Fujifilm Finepix J30 digital camera

 

The Finepix J30 digital camera is simple to use and beginner-friendly

Reasonable image quality up to ISO 400

No distinguishing features, only 3X optical zoom

Fujifilm's Finepix J30 is a simple to use compact digital camera, but it doesn't have anything to set itself apart from the crowded market of similar point-and-shoot cameras.

Fujifilm Finepix J30 review

 

The Fujifilm Finepix J30 digital camera has a simple fascia, free of the clutter and excess badging that cheaper cameras seem to have in abundance. It's a glossy silver finish with a few chrome accents, with the lens off-set to the left. The 3X zoom...

The Fujifilm Finepix J30 is a compact digital camera that's good for amateur photographers or anyone looking for a slim, and easy-to-use model. It doesn't differentiate itself with any exceptional features — so if you need additional features at the...

Fuji Finepix J30

 

Inevitably there are one or two areas where a camera in this price range is not perfect, but on the whole I was very impressed by the quality of the photos I managed to take. This camera is also very easy to use and has a simple, yet pleasant design.

Ease of use - price tag

I had problems with lowlight photography

Despite the issues with my indoor tests I still like the Fuji Finepix J30. It is hard to fault its ease of use and the picture quality of my outdoor scenic shots was very good indeed.

Fujifilm - Finepix J30

 

"The camera never lies" is one of those sayings that now seems truly outdated in this age of digital image manipulation. Even basic budget cameras like this J30 come with some image gimmickry built-in, such as ...

The J30 is a compact camera with a decent spec that produces some good quality pictures with a minimum of fuss. The images captured boast some vibrant colours, and the inclusion of an automatic panorama mode is a neat touch. For a point-and-shoot...

J series of compacts gets a new recruit

At only 20 mm thin, and available in a number of different colours, Pink, Silver and Black, the FinePix J30 series have been finished with a special double coated laminate to give a beautifully glossy, varnished finish

Bad

 

This is a good first digital camera with various features. It is good for its price range. However, if you want good quality photos every time, chose a brand like Canon.

Good quality images and the video recording function on the camera is good for its price range.

The most problematic aspect of the camera is the zoom. As soon as I tried to zoom at a subject, the image quality diminished quickly to the point where it rendered zooming-in pointless. The playback function for the videos was hard to work - it has...

Easy to use. Mains battery charger, so no taking loads of spare batteries with you. Battery lasts a good while before needing to be recharged. Good quality product and the photos are also good quality.

Haven't found any yet!
