Fujifilm Launches the X70 Advanced Compact Camera and the X-E2S Mirrorless Camera
Aside from the flagship X-Pro2, Fujifilm has introduced two more offerings under their X Series cameras: the X70 and the X-E2S.
Features of the Fujifilm X70 Compact Camera
The Fujifilm X70 Compact Digital Camera boasts of a single Focal Length Wide Angle Lens (18.5mm·F2.8) plus a 16.3 Megapixels X-Trans APS-C CMOS II sensor. These elements work with the built-in EXR Processor II to deliver dramatic shots as always. This camera also has a maximum ISO of 51200 to make it work well despite low-light settings.
Its autofocus also works for as fast as 0.1 seconds with the help of 49 AF points in single-point mode and 77 AF points in zone and tracking modes. The Fujifilm X70 is also the first X-Series model to have a touchscreen LCD. This three-inch, 1.04-million-dot display screen can also be used as a camera shutter via the Touch Shot feature. Other smartphone-like gestures such as swipe, drag, and double tap will trigger corresponding commands too.
The same touchscreen can also be tilted to up to 180 degrees to have more flexibility in shooting from high or low angles. Also, the camera features a mechanical shutter of up to 1/4000 sec as well as an electronic shutter of up to 1/32000 sec. This allows you to shoot with wide apertures even in bright sun to create bokeh effects. You can select either the mechanical shutter, electronic shutter or both.
For easier camera programming, you can select Auto on the selector lever to switch the camera to Advanced SR Auto mode which selects the optimal setting out of 54 pre-programmed scenes. These effects can help render photographic film of high quality. When shooting for RAW images, the X70 has a processing function which includes 11 simulation options to expand your creative options. The Fujifilm X70 Compact Camera is available in black and silver variants.
Features of the X-E2S Compact Camera
Using the 77-point AF area, you can take advantage of either the Full Auto or the Zone and Wide/Tracking mode to improve image sharpness. You can view the AF points as well as the other camera functions through the three-inch, 1,040K-dot LCD touchscreen. Aside from great images, this Fujifilm X Series camera can capture full HD video 1080p at 60 fps. Captured videos are saved as MOV files and the biggest resolution allowed is 4896 x 3264. Just like the X70, the Fujifilm X-E2S is available in black and silver colours.
Both the Fujifilm X70 and the X-E2S Compact Cameras are compatible with SD cards. They also support wireless functions such as remote camera shooting and geotagging through a wireless transmitter.
