Hand on Review with the Fujifilm X-T10

Yesterday Fujifilm announced two new products – the mid range X-T10 – a smaller, lighter, more affordable version of the popular X-T1 and a new XF 90mm f/2.0 lens with New Quad Linear Motor and Weather-Resistant Design – here is a look

Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake from from the Camera Store in Canada took the new Fujifilm X-T10 for a test drive and got back with some impressions (well mostly Niccolls to be honest…).

If you are familiar with the X-T1 (if not read our full review) – the little, younger sister camera – the X-T10 will look very familiar. The design is similar (Fujifilm stays with the retro look), the sensor is the same (and it is excellent although getting a bit old) and you have plenty of dials to control almost every aspect of the camera. This model is also made for more beginner photographers so unlike the X-T1 you do have an auto switch – which is great as the X-T1 is a complex camera to master – especially for people with no film experience.

The new X-T10

Here are some of the specs of the X-T10:

  • 16.3 MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II Sensor (just like the X-T1).
  • EXR Processor II (no big changes here as well).
  • 0.39″ 2,360k-Dot 0.62x OLED Viewfinder (good but not like the huge  0.77x magnification of the X-T1).
  • 3.0″ 920k-Dot Tilting LCD Monitor.
  • Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 60 fps (just like the X-T1 – this camera is mostly for stills until Fujifilm will learn to do proper video).
  • Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity (like the X-T1).
  • Intelligent Hybrid AF with 77 Areas (there are some improved AF options).
  • Up to 8 fps Shooting (like the X-T1 but the buffer seems very small).
  • Film Simulation Mode (nothing new).
  • Built-In Pop-Up Flash (small and not too powerful but still nice to have – unlike the X-T1 which requires an external unit).
  • Price: $800 – body only – about $400 less than the X-T1 ($900 with the 16-50mm kit).
