I recently had the chance to shoot for a while with the Fujifilm X70 camera. It’s a smaller camera than the others in the X series, like the Fujifilm X100T, but it retains the same kind of retro styling. And it even uses some of the same core components, such as the sensor, as the X100T.
Aside from being smaller, the X70 has a slightly wider and also slightly slower lens than the X100T (18.5 ƒ/2.8 vs 23mm ƒ/2).
I was shooting with it alongside the X100T and was pleasantly surprised by its handling, especially in comparison to the X100T. Overall, it’s a fun little camera to use.
It has the same 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor as the X100T and produces images that are 4892 x 3264 pixels. The lens is a fixed Fujinon 18.5mm f/2.8 (equivalent to 28mm in 35mm full-frame terms).
Here’s a selection of Fujifilm X70 photos I’ve taken to give a sense of how it performs under various conditions and with different types of shots. Things like different lighting conditions, at different ISOs and apertures, how much lens barrel distortion there is or isn’t, how to handle macro close-ups and landscapes, and so on.
Most of these were shot in aperture priority mode. They were all shot in RAW format and minimally processed in Lightroom using the supplied Camera PROVIA/STANDARD film emulation profile. I haven’t applied any corrections for chromatic aberration or lens distortion.

Price & Availability of the Fujifilm X70
Since I originally posted this, the X70 has been discontinued. The closest replacement is probably the X-E4.
As a discontinued model, the X70 is harder to find in stores now. Of course, that might also mean you get a great deal if you do find one!
