Fujifilm X70 close to the ground

As written in my previous post i bought the X70 mainly due to the tilt screen and being able to take photographs at ground level.


I found some minutes of free time and made a short photowalk to see how well its working and if its worth still keeping the X70 !?!?

What i can immediatly answer is, that its for this way of photography absolutely perfect ! Due to the tilt screen i am able to carefully compose the image without being blind during the phase of capturing or having the need to lay on the floor in order to see what i capture.

Some more things of the X70 i like are the size and image quality. I really like the compactness compared to the X100 series. It fits into the pocket and is confortable to held without a thumb grip or any additional accessories.

Regarding image quality, i do not see any difference to the X100s. To be honest i didn't also expect any, as they use the same sensor. I didn't check the digital teleconverter in detail, but what i saw during a short test is that the 35mm are still ok. With the 50mm setting the quality dramatically decreases, so for me not really acceptable.

    Hi Dragan! I wanted to congratulate you on your new website. Looks so good! Great choice of shots for your portfolio and very clean design makes it so inviting. Thanks for x70 review - it might be a great alternative to my x100t. I like my X100t however tilt screen is something I would use for sure, and x70 is more compact so it can be a great little camera for street use. Wishing you a great day!

    All the best!

    Hallo Dragen! Cooles Review, die X70 ist sicherlich eine ganz fantastische Kamera, wie auch deine Bilder beweisen. Die Möglichkeit Bilder aus "ungewöhnlichen" da niedrigen Perspektiven zu machen, erhöt den Einsatzbereich speziell im Street-Bereich dramatisch.
    Finde deine Fotos generell ganz toll! Liebe Grüße (ebenfalls) aus Wien :))
