Design & Control
Tilting LCD Screen - Shoot at any angle with the 180 degree tilting LCD screen
A 3.0-inch 1.04M-dot 180 degree tilting LCD screen allows users to shoot from a wide variety of angles, such as low angles and high angles, and flipping the screen 180 degrees upwards is perfect for selfies. The FUJIFILM X70's wide-angle lens is ideal for high-quality self-portraits that include your surroundings too.
Touchscreen - Enjoy Simple Playback And Shooting With the First Touchscreen on an X-Series Camera
The FUJIFILM X70 is the first X-Series model to feature touchscreen control. When shooting, the touchscreen allows users to select a focus area and use Touch Shot to take a picture quickly. During playback, smartphone-style gestures can be used, including swipe, drag, pinch-zoom and double tap enlargement, offering a different experience to viewing images using buttons.
Focus Area Selection: Move the focus point to the chosen position by tapping the LCD monitor.
Touch Shot: Touch to focus on a specific point, then take the picture.
Swipe Movement: Swiping a finger across the screen scrolls through the images, one after another.
Double-Tap Enlargement: Tapping the screen twice will enlarge the image, centering on the active focus point when the images was taken.
Drag: Moving a finger across the screen when an image is enlarged will move it around the frame.
Pinch out: Placing two fingers on the screen and widening the distance between them enlarges the image.
Pinch in: While the image being displayed is enlarged, placing two fingers on the screen and narrowing the distance between them reduces the image size.
Exposure control using dials and an aperture ring
Based around the trademark X-Series operating system, the small and lightweight FUJIFILM X70 offers intuitive operation with at-a-glance checking of important exposure settings. The lens features an aperture ring, while shutter speeds and exposure compensation are controlled by dials on the top-plate. Apertures can be changed in 1/3 or 1 stop increments for precise control, while the dials are milled from aluminium for ease of use and a comfortable feel.
Auto Mode Selector Lever
Selecting AUTO on the top-plate Auto Mode Selector Lever switches the FUJIFILM X70 to Advanced SR Auto, where it automatically selects the optimal settings according to the scene. This delivers instant high-quality results with settings chosen based on 54 pre-programmed scenes.
80 years of photo film research adds up to color reproduction that's second to none.
Over decades of film manufacture Fujifilm has perfected the skill of color reproduction and it lives on in the FUJIFILM X70. Pleasing skin tones, natural blues and greens, and the ability to perfectly record the diversity of white balance conditions throughout the day are all taken in the camera's stride, and it also boasts a wide dynamic range for better reproduction of detail.
Recreating the colors of Fujifilm's photographic films
Film Simulation, perfected through Fujifilm's passion and philosophy of color reproduction over 80 years of photographic film manufacturing, allows users to create the colors and tones of photographic film, delivering high quality results with ease. If you shoot RAW, the in-camera RAW processing function enables any of the 11 Film Simulation options to be applied post-capture, broadening your shooting options.
Maximizing the power of APS-C-sized X-Trans CMOS II sensor
Capture each strand of hair in crisp detail. - Due to the X-Trans CMOS II sensor architecture that eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF) and integrates FUJFILM's originally developed color filter array, the FUJIFILM X70 reproduces scenes with resolution and clarity rivaling a larger sensor.
X-Trans CMOS II sensor incorporates an original color filter array with a highly random pattern, eliminating the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF). These filters are used in conventional systems to inhibit moire at the expense of resolution. The X-Trans CMOS II sensor array lets the sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens, achieving an unprecedented level of resolution.
A remarkable leap in high sensitivity - maximum ISO of 51200
To broaden photographic opportunities in low-light scenes, you'll find an expanded sensitivity range, which now extends to an impressive ISO 51200. To combat noise at these ultra-high sensitivity settings, the arrangement of components and circuits around the sensor has been redesigned, keeping blacks black, with minimal grain and no color casts.
Ultra-fast electronic shutter
The camera features a mechanical shutter of up to 1/4000 sec as well as an electronic shutter of up to 1/32000 sec. This allows you to shoot with wide apertures even in bright sun to create beautiful bokeh effects. You can select either the mechanical shutter, electronic shutter or both.
AF system captures the subject perfectly - High-speed AF with on-board phase detection pixels
The camera's Intelligent Hybrid AF system combines the excellent autofocus speed of Phase Detection AF with the strong low light performance of Contrast AF. The phase detection elements on the image sensor delivers autofocusing speeds of up to 0.1 sec. A new algorithm has also enhanced performance in low light and low contrast conditions.
Faster together - the X-Trans CMOS II sensor and EXR Processor II.
The blazing image processing performance of the EXR Processor II not only produces images with increased resolution and higher quality at higher speeds, but also accelerates operational responses. The start-up time has improved to only approx. 0.5 sec. Working in tandem with the high-speed signal readout of the X-Trans CMOS II sensor, the processor reduces the shooting interval to 0.5 sec. and shutter time lag to 0.01 sec.
Continuous shooting with AF-C at 8.0 fps and advanced subject motion prediction
Features advanced subject motion prediction technology to predict the subject's movement using past data, enabling continuous shooting with AF-C4 at up to 8.0 fps.
Delivering a more accurate focusing performance - Single-point AF divides the focus area into smaller sections to more accurately determine the distance to the subject for even greater focusing accuracy. The built-in phase detection pixels deliver AF performance that enables fast focusing in low-light conditions and on low-contrast subjects.
Auto Macro For Close-Up Shots - Automatically switch to an AF mode optimized for close-up photography. Minimum working distance: 10cm.
Face Detection + Eye Detection AF - Take professional-looking portraits with Face Detection and Eye Detection AF, which focuses accurately on the eye.
Six different AF modes - The new Zone and Wide/Tracking modes ensure that sideways movements are captured.
- AF-S + Single Point - Delivers highly accurate autofocus on a specific area. Choose any one of 49-point focus areas, then select the size of the area in five different levels.
- AF-S + Zone - Effective for a subject with moderate movements, which the Single Area mode may have difficulty capturing. Choose a 3x3, 5x3 or 5x5 AF area. Use the centrally-positioned 3x3 and 5x3 phase detection AF areas for faster autofocusing speeds.
- AF-S + Wide/Tracking - The camera automatically selects and focuses using several of the 77-point focus areas. This is ideally suited to subjects with unpredictable movements, or multiple moving subjects.
- AF-C + Single Point - Pin-points a subject with a fixed direction of movement, e.g. moving towards the camera. Choose any one of 49-point focus areas, and select the size of the area in five levels.
- AF-C + Zone - Tracks a subject when shooting hand-held, using a 3x3, 5x3 or 5x5 area to maintain focus. Choose the phase detection AF areas for faster autofocusing speeds.
- AF-C + Wide/Tracking - Perfect for capturing a subject that moves unpredictably up/down, left/right and closer/further from the camera. Suitable for shooting with a tripod, simply pick the starting position to start tracking the subject.
New Digital Tele-Converter - Integral Digital Tele-Converter Offers 35mm and 50mm Equivalents
