Pocketable APS-C: Fujifilm X70 real-world samples

Fujifilm's new X70 compact camera puts the 16MP APS-C sensor from the X100T into a much smaller body, omitting an EVF but adding a 28mm equiv. F2.8 lens and articulating touch-sensitive screen.

Fujifilm X70 puts 28mm equivalent F2.8 lens into compact X100-style body

While the X70 features the same 16MP APS-C-size X-Trans CMOS sensor as the X100T, it has a wider and slower lens (28mm equiv. F2.8) and lacks that clever hybrid viewfinder. What it does offer is Fujifilm's first touchscreen LCD, a max ISO of 51200, an electronic shutter, 1080/60p video and, of course, plenty of direct controls. Read more

Fujifilm's budget FinePix XP90 rugged camera makes a splash

Fujifilm has released the FinePix XP90, a relatively minor update to last year's XP80 rugged camera, with the main new feature being a larger and sharper LCD.
