First Impressions: Fujifilm X70 | Chris Gampat

Put an APS-C sensor inside of a small point and shoot and give it a nice prime lens, and you’ve got a camera that Nikon and Ricoh created years ago. Give it a sweet shutter speed dial and an X Trans Sensor, and you’ve got the baby brother of the Fujifilm X100 series. Indeed the Fujifilm X70 is a smaller fixed lens camera with a 28mm f2.8 equivalent lens in front of a 16MP APS-C sensor. Give it a flip up LCD screen, a touch screen, WiFi, a dedicated switch for Auto mode, and make it easily hand holdable and you’ve got yourself a dedicated street shooter. I saw this camera in person back in December, and knew just how excited the street community would be about it. I’ve been playing with it for a little under 24 hours now, and so far I’m incredibly impressed…….
