I everyone already know F30 is great in low light.

But how does the camera performs outdoor??Maybe compared to SD700IS??

IS F30 too bulky for pocket camera??

I like the design of Canons SDxx series as oppose to Fuji,but of course performance is main thing to compare.

I often carry my F-30 in a jacket pocket. It is really not that much bigger than a Canon SD series camera. And I am sorry to say that the F-30 is indeed better in low light level shooting conditions than the Canon SD-700IS.

However, the bottom line is that you have to like the camera, or you will tend not to use it at all.

Thanks.I know is good in low light,but what about outdoor??

Also F20 vs. F30 there is difference in ISO (1600 on F20 should be fine I think)

and some manual controls.Are they worth it??

That is a subjective decision, that only you can make. If I were you I would take some time out to read the F-20, F-30, and S-6000fd reviews carefully as they are all essntially based upon the same imager, but have different features.

I did just that and I ordered the S-6000fd this morning.
