Hi All, I have a new X70. Image quality is exemplary. But... Now I cannot get my AF/AE Lock button to work. It worked when I got the camera a few weeks ago, now it does not. I'm certain it's some other camera setting I chose that has disabled it, but I cannot figure it out. The manual is no help. Here are some of my current settings: Aperture-preferred AE Focus Mode switch = S AE/AF Lock mode = S (on/off switch mode) AE/AF Lock button set to AE-L (auto exposure lock only) Drive mode = Still...

I'm looking to downsize from my X20 for two reasons -size and lack of full analog control. The X70 seems to be the solution but when I visited my closest camera store (where did they all go anyway?) and took it outside I was having difficulty seeing the exposure indicator (I am in my 60s so eyes are not what they once were). It wasn't even a bright day - slightly overcast actually. So my question to users is this: any trick to increasing visibility of the exposure meter on screen? I thought...

After a while I have succeeded in connecting to my PC. I think my main problems were that the PC autosave  setting is not as shown in the instructions just after wireless connection in the playback menu but on the following page and it was a while before I saw it.  The instructions also ask for a password which on my router is described as a key, which is different.  Having surmounted these obstacles it seems that there is no option to identify the images which you want to transfer.  The...

Hi all, While I have been reading dpreview for years, I am new to this forum, so, nice to meet you all! :) I am going to Europe for 2 weeks in about 2 months time - London, Paris and Rome. I am a D7100 user with LG G4 as my "portable camera" (I know, it is a phone, but you know, it is handy hahaha). Since this is a trip with my wife and her first time to Europe (first time for me to Paris and Rome, as I used to study in UK), I would prefer to enjoy the time with her more than stressing out...

I currently have a Sony RX100M3 as my small take anywhere/ travel camera. I'm in the market for a new travel camera, not because the Sony isn't cutting it, just because I like new things/ simply want to try a new camera. I had my eye on the Ricoh GRII (annoyingly they have basically no distribution around my local area so I have to order one in, not a big deal, but just means I can't go to the store and hold one) Then I started reading about the Fuji X70 and I got beyond confused, it's...

I am very happy with my new X70, despite the obvious whims and quirks. One thing I dislike outright, however, is the "new" shutter release button. On the X100 series (including the s and the t) as well as on the XE2 series and the Xpro-1 the release button had a little screw that you could attach a traditional shutter release cord into, a pleasure to use. That's gone now. The shutter release button is equipped with something like a "soft release" button that I do not like. Does anyone have...

This is both a rhetorical question and a practical one, and would appreciate replies from X70 users. I'm looking to see how the touch screen works, and if it would work in the specific situation I have here. I am using a XA1 with 35/1.4. (I am waiting to get the X70, but have to wait to buy it in Canada as Thailand is too expensive).  I was taking portraits of this monk in Thailand. and noticed he had a really funky wooden staff. I wanted to first get the staff in focus, and then his face in...

I recently got an X70 and I like it very much! I have question about the in-camera flash setting. I was thinking of setting the flash to auto to help with back-lit situations when encountered outdoors. If I leave the flash on auto, instead of suppressed flash, will that deplete the battery a lot if the flash doesn't go off much?
