While few look for performance and features as the foremost factor when purchasing a compact camera, the first impression's almost always made by the way the camera looks. In that respect, the Fujifilm FinePix Z30, would be one of the first to catch your eye, with its dazzling, bright colors.
The minimalistic, yet striking design reflects in the camera's button placement too, and the only button on top is the shutter-release. The camera is switched on and off via opening and closing the lens' sliding cover. This can be a bit of a pain, since it's not too hard to accidentally open the slider should you choose to store the camera in any cramped up space like your trouser pocket. The back of the camera's covered in black plastic, and nests most of the buttons - zoom, preview, navigation, menu, display, and video recording buttons are neatly placed besides each other.
The screen's pretty much like most cameras - 2.7-inch with 230,000 pixels. Overall, while the camera looks pleasing, it feels a little cheap, and has a rather shoddy paint job. Just sliding it in and out of your pocket for a while can make its paint wear out easily, leaving behind some ugly bald patches.
