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…
