The X30 also includes a large tilting 3.0" 920K-dot premium clear LCD monitor, increased battery performance, and a strong, yet lightweight, die-cast magnesium alloy body that is superbly designed to add a real sense of style and elegance to the camera.

Image quality from the X30's 2/3” 12MP sensor is very good, and while there are better-specified (and larger-sensored) compact cameras out there, the X30's combination of enthusiast-friendly ergonomics, classic styling and good everyday picture quality is very attractive.
Good for: Photographers looking for a second carry-everywhere camera with plenty of manual controls.
Not so good for: Anyone looking for class-leading image sharpness or the ultimate in low-light performance.
