We already knew it was coming, thanks to Nokishita, but now Fuji’s made it official and announced their new Fujifilm X-S10 mid-range APS-C mirrorless camera. And it’s pretty much exactly as the leaked specs and photos said it would be. Essentially, it’s a low budget X-T4 with much of the same (or close) capability.
It packs many of the still-shooting features of Fuji’s X-T4 into a smaller and more affordable body ($1,699 vs $999). It has the same 26-megapixel X-Trans sensor and X-Processor 4 as the X-T4, but with a new in-body image stabilisation system that’s significantly smaller yet still offers up to six stops of stabilising capability.
The X-S10 features a 1.04m-dot 3″ flippy out touchscreen LCD, with a 2.36m-dot resolution EVF. It offers shutter speeds all the way from a pretty nippy 1/32,000 of a second all the way up to 900 seconds. Yup, that’s fifteen whole minutes. Great for you long exposure landscape and astro shooters! It has an ISO range of 160-12,800 (80-51,200 expanded), and has a sporty 20fps continuous shooting speed.
For the video folks, there’s no crazy 8K or 4K120, but there is 4K up to 30p with a microphone input and headphones via an adapter. Internally, it’s a little behind the X-T4 offering 8-Bit 4:2:0 (and it’s Long GOP, no All-I option). Externally, however, you can capture full 10-Bit 4:2:2 using a device like the Atomos Ninja V. You also get to shoot 1080p at an insane 240fps for a 10x slow-motion.
Overall, it’s an interesting and pretty impressive looking body for what it costs. While it doesn’t quite hit the capabilities of the Fuji X-T4, it also doesn’t come with the $1,700 price tag, either.
