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 may look like a shrunken X100-series camera with lens specs lifted from a Ricoh GR II, but in practice it handles and shoots very differently than either of those cameras. This is due in no small part to a Fujifilm first: a touchscreen...

The X70 comes along at a funny time. The X-Pro2 has shown us the next steps in Fujifilm tech, and at this point, the X70 seems like a swan song for Fujifilm's venerable 16.3MP sensor. The X100T and X-T1 are still the standout cameras when it comes to a...

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.
