I'm planning to purchase a JJC x70 lens shade for my new (backordered) Fuji X100V camera.  Question though -- what specific cap will fit on the front of the x70 lens shade? Thanks, Bill

my g7x ii screen has quite flat boring colours compared to my fuji xq2 or x70 is there any way to change the colours, i have tried more and less screen light which just washes out or darkens the screen, and the nature setting gives only a tiny change, which is nothing compared to the vivid clarity of my fuji cameras, which looks both more realistic and vivid, far easier to see contrast and focus too also i find it really hard to autofocus on close subjects like flowers even in sunlight,...

My NP-95 in my X70 (great camera still in 2021) is dead; it will not take a charge at all. I shopped B&H for a replacement and it's listed as no longer available! This battery powered the original X100 and other cameras. Has Fuji really abandoned its users to sub-par 3rd party batteries? I found one authentic NP-95 on Amazon but quickly discovered it was offered used. Is Fujifilm manufacturing a current battery that replaces the NP-95? If not, I found some replacement brands on Amazon. Is...

I really love the X70 and use the digital teleconverter 35mm and 50mm equivalents a lot, finding the quality absolutely fine (comparing to what a m43 and 1” sensors would be:) Yet when i take video, it goes back to full wide angle 28mm equivalent, which is really confusing, so i wonder if anyone has found a way to make it work with video? I expect the camera would be able to use the central part of the sensor for a crop, so it would be literally perfect zoom, hope it is possible! Aurin

I recently purchased a used Fujifilm X70 and there is something going on that I don't understand. Some times when I take photos the image comes up heavily distorted. It only seems to happen when I take a photo of a moving object, even at 1/1000 shutter speed and I'm not moving. I can understand some blur if my shutter speed is not fast enough, but this distortion? It only happens with moving objects, using manual and auto focus. I attached some images. The images are taken at 1/1000 F8. What...

I have a Fuji X70 that I like very much.  Everything works on it except the flash.  It was broken when the camera fell onto the tile floor a few months ago.  I shoot a lot of indoor or nighttime situations where fill-in flash is necessary.  I sent it in to get it fixed but they said that Fuji does not have that part available.  I checked on eBay and the cheapest Fuji X70 is over $500. Does Fuji today sell something comparable to this model?  It needs to be a portable  camera that takes good...

Can't choose between them. I live in two cities 50/50% of time and would like to have two cameras. I have X-T10, XF 14 and 18-55 mm for travels, but this gear is a bit heavy. Tried Panasonic LX100, everything excellent except EVF (so I look only at screen) and slow zooming. Firstly I wanted second lightweight camera for all aspects (everyday street, architecture, landscape) like X70. But I like EVF in Fujifilm X-T10 so much and use it 90% of time. I prefer focal length in the range of...

Hi there, on my last trips I had lots of fun shooting with my new x-t30+27mm/35mm. (light kit for traveling). I was thinking if I should buy an xf18mm to carry around with me or keep the x70 and having to carry 2 bodies. The autofocus of X-T30 is much better, but is it worth the change? I'm really undecided since the x70 is really an amazing small camera.

Many thanks --Andrew (Brit expat in Taipei, Taiwan since 1985)

Hi all, My first Fuji is coming to me, it will be the original X100. I usually shoot wide, so I’m wondering if it’s worth considering the WCL-x70 for the X100 vs the WCL-X100 (x0.75 vs x0.8). Not considering the price difference, is there any other pros and cons when if I use the wide angle converter of X70 for my X100? Thank you very much!
