Fujifilm X70

 

The Fujifilm X70 is a solid pocket-friendly compact camera with an SLR-sized image sensor and a tilting touch-screen display.

Pocket-friendly design. Large APS-C image sensor. 7.9fps burst capture. Sharp wide-angle prime lens. Crisp, tilting touch screen. Aperture ring and shutter dial. Hot shoe. Built-in Wi-Fi.

Cramped controls. Some focus struggles. No EVF add-on available. Underwhelming video.

Conclusions If you're a fan of the 28mm field of view, and in search of a pocket camera that can deliver images on par with an SLR, you've got two obvious choices to weigh—the Fujifilm X70 and the Ricoh GR II. Each has its strengths. The X70's tilting...

Fujifilm X70 Review

 

The Fujifilm X70 is fixed-lens APS-C compact camera with a 16.3MP X-Trans sensor and a 18.5mm (28mm field of view equivalent) F2.8 Fujinon lens. It shares many design elements and some specifications with Fujifilm's popular X100-series, but omits their...

Fujifilm X70 (black)

 

But it's not all lollipops and rainbows. Slow performance and some annoyingly designed controls may mar the shooting experience for some folks.

Great photo quality for the money and a manual-friendly design are the Fujifilm X70's high points.

It has slow autofocus and some annoying controls.

It's not for everyone. But if you're a manual-control freak who views the world at a wide angle and won't miss a viewfinder, the Fujifilm X70 is a great camera.

Fujifilm X70 Review

 

The Fujifilm X70 is an advanced compact camera with an APS-C sensor and a fixed 18.5mm F2.8 lens (28mm equivalent). The X70 features a 16.3-megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS II sensor with built-in Phase Detection pixels and no low-pass filter, EXR...

The new Fujifilm X70 is a big step forward from the X30 camera, and a viable alternative to the more expensive and physically larger X100T. The move to an APS-C sensor is very welcome, especially in such a small body that won't attract any undue...

Fujifilm X70 Review

 

The Fujifilm X70's APS-C sensor delivers great JPEG images -- particularly when fully-utilizing Fuji's excellent Film Simulation modes -- but does come up short in a few areas. Autofocus isn't the greatest, video performance is underwhelming and its...

Compact camera body; Impressive optical performance; Very good JPEG image quality; Good high ISO performance; Film Simulation modes; Tilting touchscreen display

Inconsistent AF performance; Clunky menus; Shallow buffer depth; Poor video quality; No built-in viewfinder like X100-series

Compared to other options from Fujifilm and elsewhere the Fujifilm X70 is expensive. If you like taking selfies then this is the camera for you and its seamless WiFi feature will transfer those selfies to your phone fairly quickly. But, in general, you...

Fujifilm X70 review

 

The Fujifilm X70 is a compact camera which couples the large APS-C / 16 Megapixel sensor of models including the XT1 and X100T with a fixed 28mm equivalent f2.8 lens. Announced in January 2016, it's aimed at enthusiasts who desire the quality of...

Great quality from X-Trans II sensor and prime lens ; Touch-sensitive screen that can flip up to face the subject ; Retro dials give quick access to exposure controls ; Fairly swift autofocus with embedded PDAF points in the middle ; Effective face and...

Fixed lens coverage of 28mm may not suit everyone ; Relatively slow f2.8 focal ratio and no image stabilisation ; No built-in viewfinder (although there is a rangefinder accessory) ; Video quality not as good as peers

Fujifilm's X70 is a high-end compact which packs the quality and control of the company's mirrorless cameras into a body that'll just about squeeze into your pocket. The highlight is of course the X-Trans II sensor, the same 16 Megapixel APS-C sensor...
