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.

I bought the x70 as I wanted something that was very portable with minimal bulk and an aps-c sensor. And then bought this case. https://www.amazon.ca/MegaGear-Protective-Leather-Fujifilm-Digital/dp/B01CYFDJ0Q/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1493567198&sr=8-3&keywords=fujifilm+x70+case The case seems to be the standard size case available for the x70.  Here's my challenge.  (1) when adding something like a lens hood, there's no room in within the case.(2) There doesn't seem to be any cases that account...

I am currently using a Fuji X70 and I am really happy about the image quality and usability in daily life (it's always in my pocket). The focal length is perfect for catching all situations nearby (e.g. food on a table, buildings, people,...). I am now thinking about getting the Fuji X-T20 because it has the same APS-C sensor (which is good for low light) and its interchangeable lenses. Sometimes zooming would be helpful for me. The X70 has a very useful digital zoom, which I like, but the...

So I have the X100F and the TCL-X100ii. I just purchased an X70 and while I like the 28mm equiv focal length, I thought it would be neat to mount the TCL-X100ii on to it to get a rough 40mm equiv focal length. The problem is I'm getting massive vignette and distortion from my raw file. Setting the menu to wide-angle conversion ON reduces the vignette (I know this is for the WCL converter for the X70 but the vignette reduction still works) but the distortion is unchanged. I am able to fix most...

If you had your choice for a secondary or third camera that would be a carry-around, would you opt for? 100T X70 XT20 The reason I ask is that I own XT2/XP2 and while I love my XP2, I am looking to have a smaller camera that I can have on me at all times. Sorry but phone cameras don't do it for me. I'm thinking with the XT20 to keep it as small and light as possible is to just put the pancake on it. The other option would be to move away from fuji for this form factor and go with the Ricoh...

After many years of being exclusively a Pentax shooter, I have just added an XT20 to my existing X70.  I have tended not use RAW very much with the latter as ACDsee ultimate 9 will not recoognise RAF files.  I recently read through a recent thread on this topic in which two respondents said that they were very happy with using ACDSee for this.  I was puzzled by this as my version of the program certainly does not work with Fuji files.  I have been in correspondence with ACDsee support who...

Hello, Luck struck and i got a used open box GRII from B and H. Other than an extended SquareTrade warranty and battery, any recommendations for accessories? I'm considering that GH-3 hood but kinda defeats the compact size benefit. Right now the camera fits perfect in my Tom Bihn SideKick with my journal. Strap or case recommendations? I'm new to photography, learning to extend beyond spray and pray, and oh-that's an exposure triangle. I needed a travel, buy-it-for-life camera that was...

Hi all, I am thinking of buying X70 because its IQ and film simulation. My only concern is low light photos. I have P&S HX90V which is not great but has image stabilization. I can hold up to 1/3" with no blurry image, ISO 200, f3,5. I am thinking if I would buy X70 I will have to use something like this f5,6 or f8, shutter at least 1/60 what ISO would be? 6400? How noisy will it be?
