Fujifilm has unveiled its smallest and lightest X-series camera with an APS-C-sized imaging sensor.

Aimed largely at street photographers, the X70 boasts a 16.3-million-pixel, X-Trans CMOS II imaging sensor and an EXR Processor II.

Due on sale next month in black and silver options, the £549 X70 is the first X-series camera to sport a touchscreen capable of rotating 180° – which should prove suitable for selfies, for example.

The 3in screen carries a resolution of 1.04 million dots and the focusing ring on the lens doubles as a control ring to help the user access controls quickly.

The camera weighs around 340g (which is 100g lighter than the X100T) and measures 112.5×64.4×44.4mm.
