Hands-on: SD700IS vs F30

[Cross-posted in the Fuji Talk forum]

While there have been numerous threads dedicated to the comparison between the Canon SD700IS and the Fujifilm F30, very few offered true side-by-side comparisons. Also, a lot of posts were written by people who owned only one of the two cameras, or people who only played with them in camera stores.

Like many others, I struggled between the two cameras. I finally bought one (I won't say which one), but was unhappy enough after a few days of use that I decided to return it and get the other one instead.

I bought the 2nd one, and I still have a few days before I have to return the 1st one, so for a few days, I have both on hand for side-by-side comparisons.

This thread will begin a series of posts from me, in which I'll cover:

  • size/portability/handholdability

  • ergonomics/ease of use/things I can't stand

  • image quality under different conditions

  • other things that may be important in deciding between these two cameras

Yes, I will post images. Yes, I will include 100% crops. Yes, I will try to have some images available for full-size download (need to keep an eye on bandwidth).

Hopefully this series of posts will help those like me trying to decide between the two.

If you like my photos, praise the camera. If you don't, blame me (but please tell me how I can improve my photos.)
