Record Screens & Menus

Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. The Fujifilm X70 kit does not include an AV output cable, therefore we had to photograph the LCD.

Record - program GIF.gif
When shooting in Program Auto mode, you can change the data displayed on the screen by pressing the Disp/Back button on the back of the camera.

In the X70's default view, video and still image resolution settings are displayed on the top of the screen. Shooting mode, shutter speed, aperture, EV, and ISO settings are along the bottom of the screen. The touch screen setting is displayed on the right side.

Press Disp to remove all data from the screen. Press Disp again to see a grid of the current settings, along with a histogram and an autofocus point grid. Press Disp a third time to return to the original view.

REcord - auto to program GIF.gif
When you slide the toggle switch on the top of the camera to switch between Program and Auto shooting modes, you'll see a message briefly displayed on the screen that indicates the change you've made. And the shooting mode icon in the lower left corner of the screen will change.

Record - auto GIF.gif
When shooting in Auto mode, you'll have the same options as in Program mode of changing the data displayed on the screen. In Auto mode however, you won't see the shutter speed, aperture, or ISO settings displayed in the primary view.

Record - q menu GIF.gif
Press the Q button on the back of the Fujifilm X70 to open a shortcut menu to the camera's most commonly used settings. This is the fastest way to make changes to the camera's settings.

Use the four-way button or the touch screen to highlight different icons in the Q menu grid. Once the setting you want to change is highlighted, use the command dial in the upper right corner of the back panel of the X70 to scroll through the available settings. Once you have the settings finalized, press the Menu/OK button to lock in the changes.

The settings under the Q button in Program mode are:

  • Select Custom Setting - Base, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, C7
  • ISO - Auto 800, Auto 1600, Auto 3200, L100, 200, 250, 320, 400, 500, 640, 800, 1000, 1250, 1600, 2000, 2500, 3200, 4000, 5000, 6400, H12800, H25600, H51200

  • Image Quality - Fine, Normal, RAW + Fine, RAW + Normal, RAW
  • Film Simulation - Standard/Provia, Vivid/Velvia, Soft Color/Astia, Classic Chrome, Pro Neg. Hi, Pro Neg. Standard, Monochrome, Monochrome + Ye Filter, Monochrome + R Filter, Monochrome + G Filter, Sepia
  • Highlight Tone - +2, +1, 0, -1, -2
  • Shadow Tone - +2, +1, 0, -1, -2
  • Color - +2, +1, 0, -1, -2
  • Sharpness - +2, +1, 0, -1, -2

  • AF Mode - Single Point, Zone, Wide/Tracking
  • Flash Mode - Auto, Forced Flash, Slow Synchro, Commander, External Flash, Suppressed Flash
  • LCD Brightness - +5, +4, +3, +2, +1, 0, -1, -2, -3, -4, -5
Some of the options available under the Q button may change, depending on which shooting mode you've selected.

Record - teleconverter lens GIF.gif
When making use of the Fujifilm X70's digital teleconverter function on the lens, you can change the camera's 28mm focal length setting to either 35mm or 50mm. As you twist the focus ring on the lens to change the focal length setting, you'll see 35 or 50 appear in a box in the upper left corner of the screen. If you're at the 28mm setting, no box will appear in the corner of the screen.

Record - 4 way button GIF.gif
Even though the individual four-way buttons are not labeled on the camera body, each button has a shortcut menu associated with it.

  • Right Button - Flash Mode (Auto, Forced Flash, Slow Synchro, Commander, External Flash, Suppressed Flash)
  • Bottom Button - Autofocus points
  • Left Button - Self-Timer (2 sec, 10 sec, Off)
  • Top Button - AF Mode (Single Point, Zone, Wide/Tracking) (This button is inactive in manual focus mode.)
These shortcut menus are the default settings for the camera. You can use the Setup menu (which is described below) to change the function associated with each of these buttons, which is why Fujifilm chose not to label them.

Because the Fujifilm X70 does not have a traditional mode dial button, you won't make specific shooting mode selections. Instead, the shooting mode you're using will change, dependent on the other settings you've enacted.

To enter Aperture Priority mode, indicated with an A icon in the lower left corner of the screen shot above, you'll need to press the Program/Auto toggle switch to Program. Leave the shutter speed dial set to A. Then turn the aperture ring to one of the f-stop numerical settings (any setting other than A). The current f-stop setting you've chosen will appear as a number along the bottom of the screen next to the F, just to the left of center.

Record - Shutter speed.jpg
To enter Shutter Priority mode, indicated with an S icon in the lower left corner of the screen, leave the aperture ring set to A. Then turn the shutter speed button to a numerical value (any setting other than A). The shutter speed setting will appear as a number in the lower left area (equal to a fraction of a second).

Record - Manual.jpg
Finally, to enter Manual mode, as indicated with an M icon in the lower left corner, turn both the aperture ring and the shutter speed dial to a numeric value. Both the shutter speed and f-stop settings you've chosen will appear in the lower left area of the screen.

REcord - EV dial GIF.gif
Having a dedicated EV dial on the top panel of the camera is helpful for making quick changes to the Fujifilm X70's EV setting. As you spin the dial, you'll see the graph in the lower middle of the screen change to indicate the current EV setting.

Record - manual focus.jpg
When you select manual focus from the toggle switch on the front of the camera, you'll see a graph along the bottom of the screen indicating the current focal point. You'll also see an MF icon in the lower left corner. Twist the focus ring on the lens to dial in the focus while in manual focus mode.

Record - drive GIF.gif
When you press the Drive button on the top of the Fujifilm X70, you'll see a popup menu with icons along the left side. As you highlight each option, the choices will appear in the middle of the screen.

  • Single Image
  • Continuous Shot - Low, High
  • AE Bracket - +1/3, +2/3, +1, -1/3, -2/3, -1
  • ISO Bracket -
    +1/3, +2/3, +1, -1/3, -2/3, -1
  • Film Simulation Bracket
  • White Balance Bracket - +3, +2, +1, -3, -2, -1
  • Dynamic Range Bracket
  • Advanced - Motion Panorama, Multiple Exposure
  • Advanced Filter - (discussed below)

Record - advanced filter GIF.gif
The special effect shooting options under Advanced Filter are:

  • Toy Camera
  • Miniature
  • Pop Color
  • High Key
  • Low Key
  • Dynamic Tone
  • Soft Focus
  • Partial Color - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple
The view of the scene through the LCD screen changes to reflect the special effect you've chosen.

It's worth mentioning here that when you select a special effect from this menu, the camera will continue shooting with the effect applied until you select Single Image from the Drive menu. This quirk of the camera's settings takes some time to remember to use properly, or you could end up ruining quite a few photos by applying a special effect when you don't want to use it. The same quirk applies to the Film Simulation settings below.

Record - film sim GIF.gif
You can apply effects from the Film Simulation mode to your photos as well. Select the film simulation you want to use from the Shooting Menu. The options are:

  • Standard/Provia
  • Vivid/Velvia
  • Soft/Astia
  • Classic Chrome
  • Pro Neg. Hi
  • Pro Neg. Standard
  • Monochrome
  • Monochrome + Ye Filter
  • Monochrome + R Filter
  • Monochrome + G Filter
  • Sepia
Record - scene mode GIF.gif
When you're in Auto mode (indicated by the toggle switch on the top of the camera), you can select from more than a dozen scene modes. Press the Menu button to open the Shooting Menu while in Auto mode to select the scene mode you want to use, which include:

  • Advanced SR Auto
  • Portrait
  • Portrait Enhancer
  • Landscape
  • Sport
  • Night
  • Night Tripod

Record - movie GIF.gif
When shooting a movie with the X70, you'll see a red flashing dot along the upper portion of the screen indicating the movie is being recorded, along with the amount of time remaining that you can record.. The indicator light near the thumbpad on the back of the camera will light orange too. Along the bottom of the screen, you'll see a movie mode icon.

Record - movie error.jpg
I have to mention here briefly that the Fujifilm X70 did an odd thing while I was recording one movie during my tests. The screen seemed to become monochrome with only light blue and white, as shown in the screen shot above. It was impossible to operate the camera when this occurred, as I couldn't see anything.

I turned off the camera and removed the battery for a few minutes, and when I restarted the camera, it returned to normal. The problem never repeated itself during my time testing the X70.

Record - shooting menu.jpg
Press the Menu/OK button on the back of the camera in any shooting mode to open the Menu screen. The options displayed in menu screens will change, depending on the shooting mode you're using.

Five pages of menu options are available in the Shooting Menu, which is indicated by the red camera icon tabs numbered one through five on the left side of the screen. Use the four-way button or the touch screen to navigate among the tabs or the menu commands in the middle of the screen.
