Fujifilm X-S10 aims for entry-level mirrorless snappers

Alongside the new Fuji X-S10 camera and the updated Fujinon XF10-24mm f/4 R OIS WR lens, Fujifilm also quietly announced something else today: a firmware update for the Fuji X-T3 that will improve the camera's AF performance "to the same level as the Fujifilm X-T4". It has a standard 3.5mm microphone input, a USB-C port for charging/data transfers (that also doubles as a headphone jack), and a Micro HDMI port. This mirrorless camera - which uses the X Mount lenses - has the same 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor as found in the very capable X-T4 camera.

Continuous shooting is possible at 8 fps with the mechanical shutter and 30 fps with the electronic shutter. Oh, and the X-S10 comes equipped with Tracking AF and Face. The best part is that it only costs $100 more than the X-T30, at $1,000 (£950.00) for the body only or $1,400 (£1,300) with the XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 R lens kit. In the description of the camera, the manufacturer says that the image stabilization mechanism is about 30% less than the similar mechanism used in the X-T4.

And lastly, what would a Fujifilm camera be without its "legendary" Film Simulation modes? X-S10 features 18 Film Simulation Modes, including ETERNA Bleach Bypass, which creates a attractive, desaturated, high-contrast look. The LCD monitor can rotate up to 180 degrees, "making it useful not only for capturing selfies, but also for taking stills and videos from various angles". Fujifilm stuck with a 2.36-million dot EVF like the one on the X-T30, but you can now set it to work best for low light, high resolution or frame rate priority.

X-S10 generates 4K video from the amount of data equivalent to 6K to ensure the footage is in high resolution with low noise.

In addition to X-S10's IBIS, its Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) mode powerfully compensates for camera shake even when walking with the camera.

Other video features include the aforementioned IBIS and digital image stabilization, along with a dedicated movie mode setting and record button on the top plate.

X-S10 is expected to be available in the USA and Canada markets commencing November 2020 in black color, and will be offered in both a body-only and two XF lens kit options.
