Only a few weeks ago Fujifilm introduced the large sensor compact X70 alongside the X-PRO2. On this video Chris Niccolls, from from the Camera Store in Canada take a look at the camera to see how capable it really is.
Niccolls likes the deign – it is easy to use and comfortable as long as you have small hands – the lens ring is a bit small but still usable. As for the lens – you have to remember that this is a wide angle fixed lens – so you are more limited than with a DLSR or mirrorless camera or even a zoomed compact camera like an RX100 series.
On the bright side the image quality is very good just like most of the previous gen Fuji cameras with their 16MP sensors. The video on the other hand is not something to write home about and you don’t get any sort of EVF or built in OVF (you can put an external OVF if you like).
Here are the main specs of the Fujifilm X70:
- Sensor: 16MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II Sensor.
- Lens: Fujinon 18.5mm f/2.8 Lens (28mm Equiv. in 35mm).
- LCD: 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Tilt touchscreen.
- Video: FHD 1080p @ 60 fps.
- Connectivity: Wi-Fi.
- Continuous Shooting: 8 fps
- Price: $700.
