Fujifilm X70

The Fujifilm X70 is a smaller, less-expensive X100T-style camera. That means Fuji’s excellent 16MP APS-C X-Trans sensor, a fixed 28mm f/2.8 full-frame equivalent lens (vs. the 35mm FFEQ on the X100T) in a package that’s just a bit too large to fit in most pockets. The X70’s sensor has embedded phase-detection autofocus points that deliver excellent autofocus including face- and eye-detection.

The X70 has no viewfinder (although one can be fitted to the hotshoe), but is the first X-series camera to feature a tilting rear LCD that is also touch-sensitive. The camera doesn’t support 4K video (1080p max). It’s a worthy competitor to the X100T as well as the Sony RX100mkIII and street-popular Ricoh GR II.

  1. Thanks for this discussion of the X70. I’m a Nikon shooter and as much as I like my DSLR bodies the idea of a small compact camera like the X70 is intriguing, especially with its manual controls for aperture and shutter speed. The flexible control dials on my D750 are nice but it would be nice to have a camera with one dial actually on the lens that controls the aperture size, along with another dedicated dial for shutter speed. Like Doug said, this might seem a bit retro but when you think about it, it’s probably the best way to do things.
