Does anyone have any know what the difference is between these two. I'm trying to decide which one to purchase. I know the F20 is cheaper and the battery doesn't last as long as the F30. But that is all I know. I'd like to use the camera indoors without the flash to photograph my very active children. Also, to take outdoor photography as well. Thanks for all your help.

The cameras are very similar. You already know about the battery, and the difference is considerable (almost twice the number of shots per charge with the F30). In addition, the F20 has a more powerful flash, which will drain the smaller capacity battery even faster, and will most likely increase the shot cycle time when using flash. A minor difference is ISO capability...the F20 goes up to ISO 2000 and the F30 ISO 3200. The main difference to me, is the fact that Fuji stripped the F20 of virtually all manual controls. The F30 has aperture and shutter priority modes, the F20 does not. The F30 also has a much higher resolution LCD, which could be a very important difference, considering neither camera has an optical viewfinder.

You might also consider the F31FD, which adds Face Detection and and a slight change in noise reduction processing.

Good luck.
