More fun with the X70

I haven’t had a chance to go out and play with the camera, anyways here are a few more images, hope you like them. Yes camera is slow, buffer really sucks, when drive mode is set to continuous it doesn’t matter if you only shoot 2 images, it will slow down to clear the buffer, but colors are great and image quality is as good as it can get for the size. The Leica Q feels like a dslr in regards to speed and response time compare to the Fuji.

Wouldn’t recommend it as your only camera, but as a side camera and day to day one is wonderful. I am actually thinking of getting the wide adapter, so when I go with the Q I take this one with the 21mm equivalent🙂






And one with the selfie screen🙂

Fuji X70

Just got a x70 to use as a day to day camera and not worry about equipment when traveling with the family🙂 This is not my first fuji, I used to be a x100 user, but sold it after having quite a few issues with the camera, (sticky blade, bad service support, etc, etc, but that was long time ago).

First of all, the camera is really small, actually to small, but that was what I was looking for. Its incredible that for such a size, you get such image quality. I am more than happy with the image results, I only done a few shots, quite impress till now.

My concerns are that the camera does feel sloppy, reminds me of the x100, aperture dance when focusing, if you shoot in manual, and use apertures like f8, it feels clumsy, (slow?) when it closes down the aperture to shoot. Focusing is not the fastest.. Anyways, the good overcome the bad, and I didn’t get the camera to use it as my main camera, I got it to use it as a point and shoot, and carry it when I dont want to be messing with equipment.

I got a voigtlander viewfinder, works quite good. Actually I can use it with the camera in autofocus, parallel error is not such an issue, and you can actually feel when the camera has achieved focus.

A few snapshots playing with the camera…
