X70: For how many shutter releases was it designed?

Recommended Posts

Hello there,


as I use my X70 mainly for street phtography I often shoot in continuous low mode. After a short day of shooting I've easily done 3000+ exposures.


For how many releases was the X70's shutter designed?


Thanks for your information & best regards,

I suppose that, given what you are telling us, you will find out before anyone else does.



You are going to be the first one to know when the camera ceases working because you’ve reached the max shutter count (if anything like that should exist).


Make sure you report back here when you do.


Good Luck!

Of course why would anyone shoot 3000 pics per session is a good question to be asked.


As I sad I shoot in continuous low mode. If I shoot 10 frames per scene when walking past someone (sometimes more, sometimes less) this comes down to just about 200-300 photos - which is not that much for a day of shooting with a Fujifilm I suppose.

and how long does it take to go through all the pics and make a choice among many hundreds of almost exactly the same pics?


Quite a long time, thanks for caring! At 3 fps and moving subjects the pictures are very much not exactly the same. Further, as already stated, I shoot about 10 frames per scene - and there are many different scenes.

Shoot less.  Spend more time looking for the story.  It's one thing to work a scene, it's a completely different thing to "spray and pray" you got a good image.


If you come home with one image worthy of sharing, you've had a good day on the streets...If you shoot less, and work a valuable scene, you'll come back with more keepers in the long run.

70,000 releases average, unofficial info for X-E2.
Should be similar number for X70.

I believe this comparison is incorrect.

The X70, and it’s X100 sisters, have leaf shutter whereas the interchangeable lens X-cameras have focal plane shutters.

      Whatever happened to the X70? I don't currently own any Fujifilm camera, but I'm looking for a new small camera for travel. I have a list of "wants", and while the X70 doesn't tick all my boxes, it certainly looks like a nice option, especially combined with the optional optical viewfinder and wide converter lens.
      The X100 series looks even better of course, and I keep re-considering it, but the 28mm equivalent when combined with the WCL-X100 is just not wide enough, and so rules the camera out.

      Hi. My lovely X-E3 has a problem. Sometimes when I press the shutter (fully press it, to take a photo!) there is a significant delay before the shutter fires. A delay of around 1.5 seconds. Enough to miss the shot, should my subject happen to be on the move. I am using mostly the 18mm f/2. I have tested the lens on a borrowed X-Pro1 and it works 100% - so it's not the lens.
      I think the problem happens around 25% of the time, enough to be very annoying.
      Has anyone else experienced something like this before? If so, what did you do about it? Thanks.

      My shutter has been stuck at 1/500 and I can't change it. I can move the shutter wheel, but shutter in camera doesn't do anything. I have been trying rotating wheel in front but that doesn't help. Anyone got any experience with this ?

      I wonder if anyone had the chance to try the WCL-X100 and TCL-X100 on the X70.
      The mount is the same as the WCL-X70 so it's technically possible, although I guess the distortion will be quite an issue... 
      Any interesting feedback?

      Hi guys, I'm new in the forum. Have had an x100s for almost 4 years and I always loved it. It has always been my travel camera. But I always found a limitation to it and I thought bigger and more professional Fuji cameras wouldn't have it.
      For my professional work (fashion/advertising/food photography) I was using a nikon D800e (always been a nikon photographer, until my x100s made me think about it).
      Recently, I traded my nikon gear (body and three lenses) for a Fuji xt1 gear with a friend (two bodies, three lenses).
      NOW, I find something majorly dissapointing:
      I need the shutter button to hold a focus lock when kept half pressed after the first shot.
      further explanation? I focus on a subject with a half press of the shutter (most cameras in the world will give you a beep sound to check that focus was acquired, something else I'm missing in the Fuji) and then I either recompose or just stay with the same framing, but I continue pressing the shutter many times to get many shots, always lifting my finger enough for the new shot, but not so far to unpress completely. So I keep the Half-press and the focus stays locked in the first setting (the first time I pressed)...
      Xt1 fails to do this and the only solution I've found so far is to use the Back Button AF-L. This could work, but why use two buttons when it could be just one (and it could have a beep for focus acquisition). Does this bother anyone else?
      Also, lastly, anyone knows if the xt2 or the xpro2 behave the same way? According to this video xpro2 has a system like I want, but can someone confirm this? Cause if its like this, I'm switching one xt1 to the xpro2.  Xt2 maybe too?
      Thanks guys, and I really hope this could appear in the future in firmware updates.
      All the best to all

    • I switched from X-T2 to X-H1 when X-H1 was launched. No regret at all because I only use non stabilized lenses, 16-55 and 90. Less blured pictures with the 90 f2.
    • Do I need a website to add images to the gallery ?? Because it ask URL address 
    • I'm coming from canon and get the xpro 3 two weeks now I don't know the difference between xpro 2  But I'm very surprised the image quality deliver from the xpro 3. What I saw the images from xpro 2 they are almost ,maybe the same quality as the xpro3  If I owned the xpro 2 or xt 3 I will probably not upgrade to xpro 3  If you are going for a new camera just one camera I will definitely go for the xpro 3

    • Do any of the newer Fuji film X cameras come with a paper owners manual in the box?  If not,  does anyone know when they last did enclose a written manual. I have difficulty reading on the computer screen and have manuals for my old Xe-1 and Xt-1.   I just find it much easier to read the paper manuals and it's easier for me to go back and forth from different pages to learn something.   Thanks.
