Fujifilm X70 compact digital camera : Fujifilm has recently introduced the X70, a premium compact digital camera featuring a new Fujinon 18.5mm F2.8 lens suitable for a range of applications from landscapes to daily snapshots. The Fujifilm camera features an APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS II sensor and EXR processor II image processing engine. The Fujifilm X70 bears all the hallmarks of the range combining a simple manual operation with superior image quality and versatile picture-taking functions. The Fujifilm Premium compact camera is the first X-Series model to offer a touchscreen display that rotates 180 degrees enabling users to shoot from up high, down low and capture selfies.
Compact body with an APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS II sensor and EXR Processor II image processing engine. Key technologies that deliver the high quality images unique to X-Series models have been compressed into a pocket-sized body. This includes the stunning color reproduction technology, developed as a result of more than 80 years of photographic film research, and the unique Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) image processing technology that corrects optical defects such as diffraction to achieve edge-to-edge sharpness and a realistic three-dimensional effect. On-sensor phase detection AF focuses in an ultra-fast 0.1 sec and, thanks to the high-speed EXR Processor II image processor, the camera starts up in just 0.5sec, has a shutter time lag of 0.01sec and shooting interval of 0.5sec.
180-degree tilting touchscreen LCD
This is the first 180-degree tilting touchscreen LCD in an Fujifilm X-Series camera. Turning on the Touch Panel Settings enables Touch Shot and Focus Area Selection when shooting. During playback, intuitive smartphone-style operations including swipe, drag, pinch in/out, and double-tap scaling can be performed. By combining the Touch Shot function with the 180-degree tilt LCD, you can get even more creative. Place the Fujifilm digital camera on the ground and use Touch Shot for a child’s or pet’s eye view. The same function also makes it easier to shoot selfies.
Taking pictures with the X70
Weighing approximately 340g, the all-new X70 is the lightest X-Series camera with an APS-C sized image sensor. The top-plate features milled aluminum exposure compensation and shutter speed dials, making it easy to quickly access key features, while the aperture and focusing rings are also made from milled aluminum to help keep weight down. Apertures can be changed in 1/3 or 1 stop increments, plus the focusing ring doubles up as a control ring for quick access to a range of functions. The Fujifilm X70 is also equipped with an Auto Mode Switch lever for selecting the fully automatic Advanced SR Auto mode. Once selected, the camera automatically chooses the optimum settings for great results on any scene.

Fujifilm has created several accessories to expand the world of the X70 premium camera. Four dedicated optional accessories have been developed to make the Fujifilm X70 more versatile. The four include the Fujifilm BLC-X70 half leather case for protection and to provide an extra grip, the Fujifilm LH-X70 lens hood to cut down flare and ghosting, the Fujifilm VF-X21 optical viewfinder for those who prefer to frame images through a finder and the Fujifilm WCL-X70 wide conversion lens giving a 21mm view (35mm equivalent).
