i just got an X70, and I'm looking for case opinions. I have no plans for an OVF, but a hood and wrist strap for sure. Opinions there would be great too. Thanks

I'm considering this camera, and I know that your feet are (mostly) better to use, but how badly does this effect IQ using the digital teleconverter? Thanks

I am making a hard decision between the Fuji X70 and Ricoh GR II as a secondary camera along with my D800 DSLR. Both camera seems perfect in my point of view and they are at the same price in Canada since Fuji is currently having a discount on X70. The "bad wifi" on GR won't be an issue since I am a RAW shooter and I always edit in computer. The only thing I am concerned about is the GR dust issue cuz I heard people who had last generation GR talking about it and I am not sure about the GR...

Hi all, for family use, would you choose X70 or X30? With either one, I will add the EF-X20 flash. My biggest concern is taking photos of my wife and child in dimly lit room.  Can the EF-X20 be used for that or only fill flash in the bright conditons? pros and cons X70 + bigger sensor + small size -fixed lens -no VF -price X30  +zoom +EVF +price -smallish sensor -rather large You're welcome to suggest another camera. Thanks Neven

Hi guys, I'm looking into pocketable large-sensor compacts at the moment, and have narrowed things down to the Coolpix A, the Fuji X70 and the Ricoh GRII. I'm particularly torn between the Nikon and the Fuji (I prefer their colours to the Ricoh), but having had a play with both yesterday I found myself stuck on one point above all others - I couldn't (for love or money) find a way to get the Coolpix A to display my actual exposure on the LCD screen unless I half-pressed the shutter button...

I just received my X70 and there are a couple of anomalies to my previous experience with the X100 series and other cameras.  I am wondering if this is normal for the X70 or if I have some settings that are causing these issues. First, when in aperture priority mode, the shutter speed will not go below 1/30 of a second.  I have to go into manual mode to get a slower shutter speed. Second, the manual says when in aperture priority, and the exposure can  not be achieved, the shutter speed will...

Has anyone had this type of sun flare from their X70- the purple batch above the spider? Is this a fault of the camera, or lens? It doesn't happen every shot, but enough to be annoying.  I don't remember this problem in my other Fuji camera, the XA1with the 35/1.4, 60 mm  or 50-230 lenses. I know I shouldn't be taking photos into the sun, but sometimes you have to break the rules, eh!

I'm enjoying the Pen F (mostly). Playing with the color and monochrome profiles is interesting and enjoyable. When I shoot jpeg using the profiles offered through the front dial, I can see the profile I used when I review the photos in-camera on the LCD (get the proper Info screen). Obviously, Olympus is storing this information somewhere. Is this information available in external editors, such as Lightroom? I cannot find it. Then again, I'm using Lr 5.7. I would really like the profile and...

Hi all! To introduce myself I have been shooting for the past five years as a pretty serious hobby, it really helps me relax and slow life down. Right now I primarily use a Fuji XT-1 and a X70. The XT-1 is my go to camera while my X70 is used for walk around with the family or signifiant other where photos aren't my priority but I never want to be without a camera. With all the updated and new cameras being announced I thought now would finally be that time to scratch that full frame itch. I...

OK, a question thread: Does anyone know if the official Fuji case for the X70 fits when I have the Fuji lens hood attached? Secondly, I'm partial to Think Tank bags, but I do not have access to any here in SW Florida. Does anyone know if the Mirrorless Mover 5 or 10 will fit my X70 with lens hood attached? Finally, does anyone here have a preference for a bag/pouch for an X70 with lens hood attached? You probably guessed: I keep a lens hood and protective filter on my X70 100% of the...
