There’s no denying the success of Fujifilm’s X-series of CSCs. Ever since the first model was launched – the X100 back in 2011 – the range has continued to impress thanks to the combination of retro design and advanced set of features, as well as the capacity to deliver some excellent image quality.

Last year’s X-T1 was a model shaped solidly by this tradition, with some saying that it was in fact the best X series model yet.

With the X-T10 Fujifilm is looking to build on the success of the X-T1 by passing down a host of the bigger brother’s features, yet making certain compromises to achieve a much lower price tag.

The question is does the X-T10 manage to reach the high standards set by its sibling, or have too many compromises been made in reaching the low price tag?

Fujifilm X-T10 Review – Features

One of the core features inherited from the X-T1 is the model’s sensor. The X-T10 features the same 16.3MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor – complete with on-sensor phase-detection pixels – which is once again paired with Fujifilm’s EXR Processor II.

The X-T10 also features a 3in, 920k-dot LCD with vari-angle technology to facilitate tilting on a horizontal axis. One feature missing from the screen unfortunately is touch technology, a feature that is sure to be missed by the X-T10’s target market.

Accompanying the LCD screen is a 2.36m-dot OLED viewfinder which is the same as seen on the X-T1, although the 0.62x magnification is less impressive than the 0.77x magnification seen on the X-T1.

Other features missing from the X-T10 in comparison to the X-T1 include weather-proof construction, ISO and metering mode dials, as well as dial locks and a PC sync socket.

That’s not to say that the X-T10 doesn’t gain a few features, and those it does gain are well suited to a more entry-level audience. These include an integrated pop-up flash, as well as a switch that allows the X-T10 to be placed in to a simplified ‘Auto’ mode.

Finally, as you might expect for a new, entry-level focussed CSC the X-T10 integrates Wi-fi technology that facilitates remote control of the camera through either a smartphone or tablet, as well as wireless image transfer. It is, however, lacking in NFC technology, although that won’t be that much of a miss for some.
