Fuji FinePix F30

Photograph of a Fujifilm Finepix F30 digital camera with the lens extended (on).

My Fujifilm Finepix F30 is the first digital camera I bought back in 2006. I still like the pictures it takes. It continues to work (2022), and every now and then I give it an outing.

Favourite Colour: Burgundy – If I have to have a favourite colour, then I guess this is currently it. It’s certainly the colour of my fountain pen, and I’ve also used it as an accent colour on a couple of walls in the living room.

January In The Garden (365: 8) – 14 January and warm enough to sit in the garden. 4 pictures

Breakfast (365: 5) – 06:30, and breakfast – It took me two days to get this one

You Hoo! (365: 4) – Future Gary says: A truly awful picture that might have been improved by clean glasses and more depth of field.

Morning Shower (365: 3) – The camera only has a 10-second self-timer, so I had to take a load of test shots the day before so that I could get the shot right on the day. I have to get to work, so time is tight.

Trim (365: 2) – A once a week task to stop my beard becoming unruly.

Dressed Rehearsal – I’m not going to have much time to get my shower shot, so I need to see if it will work in advance.

Quick Pic (365: 1) – A quick picture for the first day. I just love the light in the bathroom, and the mirror comes in very handy for seeing the picture on the camera’s display.

Mirror Ball – I took this picture of one of the mirror balls I used to construct the garden mobile when I was testing my new Fuji Finepix camera. The colours of the Virginia Creeper in the background are wonderful. One-minute read, 3 pictures
