Fuji’s compact cameras have proved very popular both with users and photography websites, but some find the APS-C format X100T too big and the 2/3-inch sensor in the X30 too small. Well the X70 could be just right. 

The new camera is aimed at enthusiast and pro photographers, and potentially artists, who want a compact camera with the better- than-average image quality that a larger sensor provides. There’s the traditional styling and control with a lens ring for aperture adjustment. It has markings running in whole stops from f/2.8 to f/16 – and adjustment in 1/3 stops.
