Fujifilm X70 review – Introduction

The X100 from Fujifilm caught the imagination of photographers both professional and amateur, as well as kick-starting the Fujifilm renaissance after years of forgettable compacts. The latest incarnation, the X100T, will often find its way onto a photographer’s camera wish list, but at almost £800, it’s a more serious investment.

Which brings us to the X70 – smaller, cheaper, more compact and featuring many of the features that made us fall in love with the X100 in the first place, the X70 appears to tick a lot of boxes. How good is it?

    The lack of built Viewfinder seems daft to me, the X30’s electronic viewfinder is perfect and also ideal for when you can’t see the screen at all on a bright sunny day. That said the addition of the touch screen on the X70 is welcome just for easy selective focus.
