Premium Compact Camera For Everyday Use

Fujifilm X70 Digital Camera A simple, convenient point-and-shoot camera characterized by its big image sensor and perceptive handling, the silver X70 Digital Camera preserves Fujifilm's preference for a classically-inspired design with well-heeled imaging capabilities. The big 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor offers a unique randomized pixel array to provide a high degree of image sharpness and clarity, along with a nuanced color palette with serene tonal transitions and high ISO sensitivity to 51200. Full HD 1080p video recording at 60 frames per second is also possible, as well as 8 frames per second continuous shooting and in-camera time-lapse recording for as many as 999 consecutive frames. In addition the image attributes, the X70 is additionally dignified by the included Fujinon 18.5mm f/2.8 lens, which provides a 28mm equivalent focal length to handle a variety of shooting applications. This wide-angle prime lens sports a slim profile to harmonize with the compact form factor of the body itself, while the body is additionally refined by the inclusion of a large tilting 3.0" 1.04m-dot 180° touchscreen, authentic exposure control dials, and milled aluminum accents for a cultured appearance. Comprised of imaging capabilities affiliated with the X-series Compact cameras, yet arranged into a pocketable point-and-shoot size, the X70 integrates an esteemed blend of both form and function.

Rounding out the X70 feature-set is a dual-purpose AF system that can be arranged to utilize 49 points using Single Point mode or up to 77 points using a Wide/Tracking mode to handle tracking of fast-moving subjects. The image processor also adds to the fast overall performance all through the camera, including fast focusing speeds of only 0.06 sec. along with a start-up time of just 0.5 seconds for quickly readying for spontaneously shooting. For stealth applications, an electronic shutter mode can be employed for completely silent use, and also allows working with shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 sec. for shooting in bright conditions with larger aperture settings. Matching the mobile, everyday aesthetic of the X70, it also includes built-in Wi-Fi for sharing images wirelessly to mobile devices or for remote control of the camera from smartphones or tablets using the Fujifilm Camera Remote app.
