Fujifilm X70 review – LCD Display

X70-back

In an effort to make the X70 as pocketable as possible, it lacks the clever hybrid viewfinder that graced the X100 series of cameras. Instead, the X70 is the first Fujifilm X-series camera to feature a tilting touchscreen LCD. The 3in display has a resolution of 1,040K-dots and can tilt round 180°. Perfect for the selfie-addicted out there, but this does seem to jar a little too much with the ethos of this as a photographer’s camera. It still has its uses, though, such as shooting from the hip at waist level – especially when used in conjunction to with the touchscreen to trigger the shutter for stealth street photography.

If you can’t live without a viewfinder, though, then the optional VF-X21 optical viewfinder (£149) slots into the hotshoe on the top of the camera.

    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.
