Fuji X70 First Images - Post 'Em Here.

First images from our new X70. Both grab shots at ISO1600. JPEGS processed in LRCC and Tonality Pro. So far I have to say it's a pretty amazing point and shoot. 'Still figuring it's uniquenesses out.

Thanks, Steve. The weather up here in northern Vermont is terrible today so I doubt I will get out much. The college where my wife and I teach has closed down too due to icy roads. Our house is quite dark anyways so initial X70 images are at ISO1000 and up. Focus in the "traditional manner" of one small point selected seems pretty fast. The touch and shoot/focus? 'Not sure yet, I need to play around with it some more.
It's a hefty/rugged feeling little camera, much more so than I expected. The grip is a bit small even for me with small hands.
Pardon the cell phone picture but I thought you folks might enjoy seeing it with a bit of bling. ;)

you should be able to figure it out...
I haven't been a regular contributor here since I sold my Fuji and m43 gear the better part of 2 years ago. I've been shooting the Nikon Coolpix A as my small 28mm fixed lens camera since about the day it became available. I love it and don't have any need to change, but there are a few features on the X70 that convinced me to check it out. After a couple days with it, I have mixed feelings, but it's growing on me, so I'm gonna keep it for a little while before I decide whether to keep it and sell the Coolpix A or return it and sty with the Nikon. Or maybe keep both because the Coolpix has very very little resale value right now, but it would be silly to have two cameras of this type...

I've written some first and second impressions in a thread on Photographer's Lounge that's linked in another thread here. Anyway, since I may be the only other person around here to have an X70 in hand, I'll help David kick this thread off with a few early images. I shoot raw, but I do like the Fuji film simulations, which are all available as Lightroom color profiles now. Kind of fun to be working with Fuji files again...

And one near-focus shot to demonstrate the better than expected bokeh for a not all that fast 28mm lens:

Another from the same session. X70, ISO1000, processed in LRCC and Tonality Pro. X70's flip out LCD was very handy as I was all but laying on the Tele. A position that didn't go over well with the resident luthier. ;-)

Stormy weather in northern New England finally slowed down a bit with 50F temps today. Very odd weather for up here to say the least. Got out this morning with the X70 for a cliche shot of the brook in front of our home. Fast and loud I guess would describe it.

Looks like he's either checking for proud frets, or setting the neck relief, but if it was the latter, he wouldn't know much til he gets all 6 on and sees the relief under tension. A tele was my first guitar, and the model I eventually wound up back in love with.

Went to Aquarium today and try out the X70.
The lighting is poor and not consistent, auto focus quite struggle and need to take few shots for each scene.
Fast moving fish all blur at first, until I use the wide focus tracking + AF-C.

Auto White balance is very accurate, what you see is what you get.

High ISO quality is really usable, especially comparing with GR. All photos today mostly over ISO 3200.

Here are some photos, all Sooc jpg.

This is using wide tracking + AF-C, working very well.
