    These are some of the images that I took with the X70 when we were on a short break in Brighton last week.
    It is an amazing little camera that exceeded all my expectations.

    Nice pics. I like the last one best. Have you noticed (from an operational perspective) that below 1/60 sec, the GR seemed steadier than the X70? For some reason, I get less keepers with the X70 when I shoot any slower (as in too much motion blur). Maybe it has to do with the weight, the fact that ideally you need to use it with both hands, et al. Or maybe I need to set my max ISO at 3200, currently at 1600 as was my wont with the GR.

    Hi Ateesh, I have auto ISO set at max 3200 and min shutter speed 1/60 so I avoid risk of camera movement / focus issues. being a heavier camera than the GR I am conscious that it needs a steadier hand and single handed shooting is now only a last resort (the GR was a great single handed shooting machine) however, the tactile easy to see settings, tilt screen and IQ more than make up for these differences and I have no regret in exchanging the GR for the X70.

    Love the later pics with people in them. Certainly has consistent IQ throughout.

    Thanks David, it delivers every time and is so small.
