Fujifilm X70 Rumors

Recommended Posts

So is this basically just an X-E2 with a fixed lens then?

 

I guess the only real difference between the X-Pro1 and the X100 is that it's a fixed lens, so that makes sense.

On, no good point. So not EVEN an X-E2. Darn. Hopefully that will make it really tiny, and inexpensive, I suppose?

 

I know the GR does pretty well as a pocket camera, but my personal priorities mean I would never be able to use a camera without a viewfinder.

I have the Coolpix A, and that is just a tad sharper than the X100. Hope FUJI manages to actually improve on what the GR and Coolpix A are capable of. Hard to imagine how. This could be a looser.

I'd like to see different versions of it like the RX100 series by Sony.  It could be an X70 with pop up flash.  Than an X70ii with a pop up viewfinder, etc...

 

But professional capabilities are a must like the GR and RX100 series cameras.

The current problem of Fuji: They have no new technology available. So they take the existing for knitting new niche models. The world ( and I ) waiting for new top models.

I feel that Fuji is diluting the camera line, and it's efforts.  I wish they focused on updating the aged X-Pro1, and I also wish they upgraded the X-T1 to 24 or 30 Megapixels.  Yes, I know the argument about more megapixels isn't a good thing, but I shoot a lot of stock with the X-T1 and my D800.  Quite frankly I would love to dump the D800 and the Nikon lenses.  However, even though 39% of my sales are X files, as opposed to 20% D800 I still would like some more pixels to make the X-T1 files larger and more attractive to potential buyers -- plus, it'll save me some backaches down the road as I won't feel guilty about not taking the D800 out on shoots.

But, that's just me talking...

Best all.

Miss the Fuji dials on the top and the aperture ring on my Nikon Coolpix A. Fuji, please do it. A smaller body without viewfinder and specs of the X100(T).

I would be very interested in this X70. I hope for it to be in the line of he Ricoh GR / Nikon Coolpix A ... A camera that in fix focal length and pocketable. I long for a great small pocketable Fuji camera. Perfect for on the the go and traveling from A to B between jobs. This will go up against smart phones (iPhone 6) ... But personally I would also go for a 'camera' rather than a phone.

there is a market for any camera, I guess.

 

However having a camera like this with no EVF but just the LCD positions it into a very small niche , methinks.

 

A Fuji hot-shoe optical viewfinder would be a nice solution to that - just as Ricoh offer for the GR. Would probably cost a fair bit, but i'd probably be tempted!

Adding an EVF as an accessory to the camera will have its retro charm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

but what would be the point if you can buy a X-100t with the EVF and the OVF already? Adding an accessory will probably make the camera more expensive than the one with both EVF and OVF.

Well i think an OVF only accessory would make more sense - that way you can bring something new to the EVF or LCD-only range of x-cameras. But i see your point that in introducing an accessory like this you start to blur the line between different cameras and what features they offer. I guess your example also applies to adding an OVF to the X-E2 (why not just get an X-Pro). 

 

Options are a good thing though, i personally like the ability to add accessories depending on what, where and when i shoot - for example adding the hand-grip to my x-e2 when using larger lenses or loosing it once a smaller prime is attached for a lighter more discreet package.

Options are a good thing but there is a point in which you start competing with yourself when you take two customers who would have bought a Fuji camera already but by offering yet another model you push one towards one model and one towards another.

 

It is a complicated thing but the most stupid thing that a company can do is to become their own competitors.

    • 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. Norm
    • what about if ill buy ronin or weebill s with follow focus servo? doest follow focus with phone,timelapses ect will not work with xt30? 
    • my friend just got the xpro 3 i own two xpro2s.. did not notice a diff in raw files what so ever... better focus by a little. get the xpro 2! save money buy lenses !
    • Gordon, Thank you for the post! From what you described, I think you felt the way I feel now regarding using Capture One. Since writing the post you quoted, I actually bought Capture One for Fujifilm. But I keep putting off learning how to use it. To be honest... I'm intimidated by learning a new software (I'm an old guy kinda set in my ways) when I feel so comfortable using Lightroom. I bought Capture One when I was feeling motivated to learn the program. But I kept putting it off and now
    • I came across the same issue as well. Problem solved.  After inserting a flimsy plastic piece (anything with certain thickness), it is back in business. It seems this is a problem about the sensitivity of the sensor.  I first used a screw driver to create a tiny gap in between, and it worked.  Stupid thing. ^^ Hello guest!
