Not into the FinePix XP90 that was just announced? Don't worry, Fujifilm has something else for you. The Japanese camera maker is also introducing the X-E2S and X70, a pair of compact shooters for people who want to start getting serious about photography. First off, there's the X-E2S, which sports a 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, alongside a newly developed 49-point autofocus system and a max ISO range of up to 51,200. In addition to that, you'll get 1080p video at 24, 25, 30, 50 and 60 fps, but you won't find any 4K support here.

As you can see above, Fuji's X-E2 successor comes with that retro chrome look, although an all-black model will be available too. The X70, for its part, features the same sensor, AF system and ISO sensitivity as the X-E2S, with the main differences being the fixed 18.5mm f/2.8 lens, the lack of a pop-up flash and command dials on the former. However, Fujifilm did put a 3-inch, rotating (180 degrees) touchscreen on its X70, the first time it has done this on any camera from the X-Series line.

Both products are due to hit stores next month for $700 (body-only for the X-E2S), in case you're interested. That said, you will have the option to buy an X-E2S bundle for $1,000, which includes a Fujinon XF 18-55mm, f/2.4-4 R LM optical image stabilization lens.
