The Fujifilm X70 Boasts the First Touchscreen in an X-Series Camera



Fujifilm just announced its new X70, a premium fixed lens camera that sleek, portable, and versatile.


Inside the camera is a 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor with an ISO of up to 51200. On the front of the camera is a Fujinon 18.5mm f/2.8 lens (28mm equivalent in 35mm terms) with a special coating and with a 9-blade aperture for smooth bokeh.

Turn the camera around and you’ll find a 3-inch touchscreen LCD with 1.04 million dots that rotates 180 degrees — the first touchscreen in an X-Series camera. It lets photographers “shoot from up high, down low and capture selfies,” Fujifilm says.




Other specs and features include AF speeds of 0.06s, a startup time of 0.5s, shutter lag of 0.05s, a shooting interval of 0.5s, a 49-point AF system, 8 function buttons, Classic Chrome film simulation mode, a built-in intervalometer, a “completely silent” electronic shutter with a max speed of 1/32,000, digital teleconverter for 35mm and 50mm, and 1080p video recording at 60fps.

The Fujifilm X70 will hit store shelves in February 2016 for $700.
