Don't know much about these cams, but F30 has a higher ISO (up to 3200) - don't know how usable though, higher resolution LCD and a new intelligent flash. Also there are new Super CCD and Real Photo Processor II.

The F30 has manual controls similar to the F11, EV control on the back of the cam for easy use, intelliflash, nice easy shape to handle, ISO 3200, but 1600 and 800 are very useable. The battery, while not the same as the F10 or 11 is also good for 500 plus shots. There are scene modes (more than the F10) and the camera is easy to learn to use, but will take some time to get the hang of. Many are setting the LCD at -3 to get an accurate representation of what you will get after the shot. Macro is very good, flash is very good, lens may have a different coating than the F11, the LCD is* brighter. Pics are sharper and some do not like that, I do. I can be great outdoors as well as at night, but you need to get the hang of it in the bright sunlight. A very nice cam.

I agree with guitone, getting the most out of the Fuji F-30, even if you are experienced, takes a bit of time. The F-30 is more like the F-11 than the F-10. Personally I like the sharpness, and am in general very please with my F-30.

If you have specific questions, I am sure there are enough active people on the Forum to help.As for me, while I am usually here, I just got back from 3 months of doing workshops in Europe. So please feel free to ask.

Here is a photo that shows the real difference between the F-10 and the F-30. Note the sharpness, the contrast, and even exposure.

IMO F 11, better build , stronger lcd screen nicer to hold , The 3200 iso in the F30 is not very good imo unusable ,returned the f 30 kept the f 11 , just my pennys worth though .
