With a rich heritage, the X70 from Fujifilm has a lot going for it. Phil Hall sees if it can live up to expectations

Fujifilm X70 review – Introduction

At a glance:

  • 3-million-pixel, APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor
  • 28mm (equivalent) f/2.8 lens
  • ISO 200-6,400 (raw), 100-51,200 (JPEG)
  • 3in, 1.04-million-dot tilt LCD touchscreen
  • Digital tele-converter with 35mm and 50mm options
  • 1/32,000sec max shutter speed

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?
