The X70’s 26mm wide angle is great for cramming in lots of scenery.


—-


The telephoto end is equivalent to a massive 624mm.


—-


The exposure system seldom burns out highlights, but the shadows lack detail. Compare this shot with the Ricoh CX1 that I reviewed last week.


—-


Colour rendition is well balanced and natural.


—-


The huge telephoto lens is surprisingly usable even hand-held. This was shot at 1/100th of a second.


—-


The X70 is a good general purpose camera, but not without its flaws.
