Fujifilm X70 for Street Photography

Street Shootr uploaded a video review of the Fujifilm X70 with this description:

The X70 is Fuji’s latest APS-C compact camera and this little guy packs a punch. You get a 28mm (equiv) lens and the same sensor as the X100T for $699 making this an appealing option for a lot of photographers. But how does it hold up as a dedicated street photography camera? Is it just the Fuji version of the venerable Ricoh GR? Watch the review to find out!

and continues to praise it in a post finding that compact is, “An excellent second camera and could easily be a primary shooter for anyone interested in shooting with the 28mm focal length on the street.”

Pros:

  • Same X-Trans sensor as X100T and it’s only $699!
  • Noticably smaller than X100T – truly pocketable.
  • It has those Fuji colors.
  • Articulated LCD for wide range of shooting.
  • Excellent 18.5mm (28mm equivalent) lens matched to the sensor.
  • Physical aperture ring and shutter speed dial.

Cons:

  • LCD resolution could be better.
  • Position of articulated LCD makes using some buttons tricky.
  • It has those Fuji colors.
  • No ND filter built in.
  • Too easy to hit Q button when grabbing camera.

The X-70 ships for free with Prime from Amazon for $699.00 where it’s rated 4 out of 5 stars.
