Re: Modern day answer to the Finepix F30?

The Sony RX100 is the best current semi-equivalent, seconded by the cheaper Fuji XF1. They both have larger sensors than other cameras in their size brackets which gives them an advantage.

Long battery life is a feature that has been disappearing from compact cameras with the rush to larger, higher resolution LCDs. I don't know about the XF1 but the RX100 isn't the fastest to start up although its actual focus speed is swift.

"The" dSLR companion compact is probably the Fuji X100s with its APS-C sensor. There're a number of similar large sensor compacts from other brands now but are even more niche.

The F30 still performs fairly well so unless you don't mind spending lots of money it should be good for a while yet.
