Fujifilm X-T10 Flagship Camera Comes Cheap, Yet Efficient

May 20, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Not all flagships are meant to extract  a bulky sum off your wallets. Especially, the newly announced addition in Fujifilm’s X series of cameras.

Bringing in a load of promises, the new X-T10 will entice many among casual photographers to switch from smartphones .

Obviously it’s cheap among the premium SLR snappers, and it would seldom invoke any repentance in your minds once you invest your hard earned money into it.


The X-T10 will commence sale with a price-tag of $799.95 (an additional $100 for a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens) when it hits the markets next month. In case you are searching for a better upgrade with lens, there is the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens that will disburse a sum of $300 along with the body price.

Worries might be with the quality compared to the younger affordable ones. But don’t go by the cheap tag when considering its performance, it’s behind the elder X-T1 only by a marginal distance.

Except for the lower viewpoint magnification, weather sealing features and accessory supports, X-T1 retains almost everything from its elder sibling. Plus, you even get handed with some new features.

The Auto Focus feature is one among them, which now comes with a zone system to track down moving objects within a specified frame. The 77 autofocus sensors will have the motion of an object grasped in a frame that can be varied to 3X3, 5X5 or 3X5 grid sizes. The feature will also pierce in to the X-T1 by late June, with Fujifilm announcing a firmware update to fetch the improved autofocus system to X-T1.


The auto-mode is the next to take the maiden step on X series, allowing users to have the snap with a single switch.

With the display and sensors, Fujifilm has taken nothing away from the newbie. X-T10 features the same 16-megapixel APS-C X-Trans II CMOS sensor and EXR II processor, which comes accompanied by the same 3-inch 920K-dot tilting display.

The viewfinder retains the OLED display that packs 2.36 million dots, although coming in a reduced size and hence a lesser magnification (0.62x). It also packs a new pop-up flash above the viewfinder that can adjust light outputs according to the environment.

X-T10 is also designed compact, with the weight reduced from the elder sibling by 13%.  Fujifilm claims the X-T10 to offer image quality that on par with X-T1, but the shift here being with the target mass. X-T10 has been designed to lure the more casual photographers, which makes a better sense for its lack of accessory supports.

The device will be hitting the markets next month, with two color variants getting tussled for users to choose from; the black and silver variants. Fujifilm also assures the support for XF and XC lenses with X-T10 device, and also for third-party lenses designed for X mount.
