I am looking for suggestions for a good pocketable camera. A strong contender would be the X70 or its successor, if there ever will be one, as I really love the photos coming out of my X-T20. I also have a Sony RX100mk2 now, but the image quality and user interface could be better. Some of my criteria are... Image quality for photos (not interested in video performance).Good low light / indoor performance.Adjustable LCD screen for shooting from high/low positions.Compactness, to fit at least...

I currently use both a GR and a Panny lx100 for small cameras. I like the size of the GR, which I take with me more because of that, but I work better with the dial setup of the lx100. The x7 seems to marry together the things I like about both the other cameras.  I use Photoshop and Lightroom for all my post work and I usually shoot raw. I haven't followed Fuji that much, but I have seen posts regarding using Adobe stuff with other cameras and not getting the most out of them vs. other...

I recently picked up an X-T2 with 18-55, 23 & 50 f2.  Love the camera and especially those primes!  I'd also really like a compact camera as an everyday carry.  As such, I'm thinking of ditching the 18-55 and getting an X70 to cover that 18mm focal length.  I'm already happy with the jump from 23 to 50.  Plus it would be one less lens change.  But....do people think that the X70 will get an update soon?  Would they give that the 24mp sensor?  Could they at this price range?   Don't really...

I am a happy owner of an Instax Share SP-2 printer. I use an A9, which has zero in-camera image processing functions, and it couldn't print directly onto the Instax, unfortunately (Sony makes sensor for Fuji, in return Sony could cooperate with Fuji to get Instax printing support on Sony cameras, too). I used to have an X-A1, at that time I had no Instax printer, and I remember that it had quite decent in-camera image processing functions as well as direct Instax printing feature. Here are...

I am looking for a compact sized mirrorless camera that will fit in my jacket pocket for primarily travel and also shoot group/single person photos well. I came down to X70 or X100F. I know X70 has 25mm which is a wide angle lens which is great for street and scenery but when it comes to taking people, I'm assuming I'd have to crop a lot to get the view I want of the group or person.  Is this not recommended? I'm willing to give away a bit of quality but not too much for portraiture photos if...

I recently posted parts of this in the Sony forum - asking about the HX90V - but got no answers. Hope I have more luck here! In 2009 I bought a Panasonic ZS3 (25 – 300 mm), which was great fun to use when I didn't want to carry my big Sony A700 and lenses around. I had trouble with the image quality though, and after about 8 months I sold it on. (I pixel-peeped a lot more back then.) As my main camera at the moment is the fixed lens 28mm Fujifilm X70, there are times when I feel the need for...

I had trouble with the image quality though, and after about 8 months I sold it on. As my main camera at the moment is the fixed lens 28mm Fujifilm X70, there are times when I feel the need for a bit of pulling power, so I've been thinking of getting a modern day version of the old ZS3. Panasonic sell a very small selection of cameras in Taiwan, but Sony...

Some time ago I read that Fuji would launch a successor to the X70, with the 24MP sensor, improved PDAF etc. Since then things have gone quiet. Has anyone here heard any well-sourced rumours about whether this camera is still likely to make production and if so, when?

As context, I compared the X-E1's LCD to the X-T10's LCD and the latter just wipes the floor with the former. Likewise with their EVFs. (The EVF is definitely worse.) It doesn't affect the end result, sure, but I'm mainly a hobbyist and this is decreasing my enjoyment of my hobby (it doesn't feel like I'm taking good images - it feels like I'm taking oversaturated images). I'm thinking about upgrading to the X-E2 to get a better LCD (well the Classic Chrome is a welcome addition as well), but...

I broke down and installed the Fujifilm app on my iPad and got my X70 connected. I selected 281 fine jpeg files to transfer to my iPad. The app says I'm transferring 0.4 Gb of information, or about 1.3Mb each. The files are much larger than that. Am I missing a setting that lets me transfer full-sized jpegs? Are resized jpegs all I get on a WiFi transfer? I sure hope not. Jim PilcherSummit County, Colorado, USALife is good in the woods. All paths lead forward.
