I bought one and sent it back after a week. Average picture quality and shocking battery life.
The street photos looks surprisingly good, but the ISO test reveals its limit at around 200.At around ISO 400 things starting to get snowy.But, under good lighting conditions the XP30 seems to be performing reasonably well.
Thanks for your feedback, Money. I think I may have been guilty of choosing the 'best' images from the XP30's memory card. I shall, of course, endeavor to select a more 'representative' batch in my next review.
Just a word of warning about Fuji underwater products - I have tried the earlier XP10 twice now, and twice I have gone home after a much looked forward to snorkelling trip at a beautiful area with much coral etc with no pics after water somehow got in and wrecked the camera. *not* my 'carelessness' or anything, I am very careful with things like this - it may have been the on-off-shutter switch area, as one of the buttons seemed unnaturally 'soft' aterwards, but I can't get a straight answer about anything here in Thailand, so it remains a mystery. My lack of pictures from a dead XP10 is a fact, however. Just a word of warning. It takes quite good pictures - until it dies.
