If you are looking for a classy point and shoot digital camera then you could do a lot worse than taking a close look at the Fujifilm Finepix F20. I was very impressed by the sharpness of the images the camera produced. It is very good in lowlight situations and I like the way it looks as well.
The Fuji Finepix F20 strikes me as a good, solid camera. I was impressed by the picture quality and the camera was able to take sharp photos in all my tests. In this area it manages to outperform the majority of its rivals. It has an unfussy, but attractive design and offers good value for money.

In not placing so many demands on performance, chiefly not unduly overstretching itself (and its SR chip) as regards ISO, Fujifilm has delivered a minor triumph.
Though of course you’re going to lose detail shooting above ISO 800, I was also surprised how much was retained. Any unusable images were due more to camera shake, and resultant image blur, than image noise, which is perhaps one area that Fujifilm has yet to adequately address. Though ISO 2000 is less of a headline grabber than the FinePix F30’s ISO 3200, I think the Fujifilm Finepix F20 is a better camera for it.
To sum up, a recommendation and certainly one of the most successful marriages of price to performance I’ve seen in recent months. It’s well built, feels sturdy enough to withstand a few knocks and suggests itself as another reliable option for a back up point-and-shoot camera on those occasions when taking a consumer-level DSLR out is both impractical and inadvisable.
