We have a lot of 'tools' in the camera market, but not many that are designed to be as pleasing to the eye as their output aims to be. I rather admire Fuji for its recognition that photography is a passion, not just a job, for most of us and that we like to have nice looking things that work well. Most cameras are designed like most cars – to be efficient and to do a job well, but it is usually hard to get excited about the way that they look. Fuji’s X series has really made a mark in the camera world, and a good deal of the attention surrounding it has come about because of the classic styling of the products - as well as the image quality of the unique sensors, of course!...

The X30 is pretty much a hassle-free camera since not only is the 12 MP compact a handy size (smaller in volume than the Canon G1 X II) but it comes with a zoom lens of 28-112mm (35 mm equivalent) with quite a speedy f2.0-f2.8 aperture. While you are simp...
