With Fujifilm’s X-Tx series regarded as one of the best APS-C mirrorless cameras, the Japanese brand thought of making one that is more compact than the X-T4 while having a price that is closer to the X-T30 series. With that in mind, Fujifilm came up with an all-new camera: the X-S10.
While it does not have the usual Fujifilm design language—you get a conventional PASM dial and ISO button instead of the retro-inspired shutter and ISO dial, along with a dedicated video recording button—the X-S10’s main selling point is that it shares a form factor similar to the X-T4 but in a more compact body. Despite being compact, the X-S10 has an in-body IS mechanism that is 30% smaller than the one on the X-T4 while delivering up to 6 stops of shake reduction. Like its bigger sibling, you have a 26-megapixel X-Trans sensor with Fujifilm’s X-Processor 4.
What is the X-S10 capable of? For stills, it can shoot up to 30FPS in continuous drive using the electronic shutter and up to 8FPS using the mechanical shutter. Its AF sensor has 2.16 million phase detection pixels that let the X-S10 focus at up to -7 EV. The X-S10 also has tracking AF, along with face and eye detection that is useful for video recording.
Speaking of videos, the X-S10 oversamples video at 6K to output 4K video at 30FPS (similar to how the X-T4 records 4K video). You can choose either 4:2:0 8-bit via the SD card or4:2:2 10-bit via the HDMI port. If slo-mo is your thing, the X-S10 can shoot up to 250FPS in Full HD. Like the X-T4 and the X-T200, the X-S10 has a fully articulating display.
The X-S10 will be available in the Philippines by mid-November for Php 55,990 for the body only and Php 78,990 with the XF 18-55 F2.8-4 R LM OIS lens.
