25 Feb Fujifilm XF10 review

Source: Fujifilm Insider

The Fujifilm XF10 is a stylish, compact, well-priced pocket camera that will take great photographs courtesy of its 24 megapixel sensor and 28mm-equivalent F2.8 lens. But while it looks good in pictures, and its pictures look good, the XF10’s overall performance may be a let-down, including for those users coming from smartphone cameras.

Key specifications

  • 24MP APS-C sensor with a traditional Bayer color filter array
  • Fixed 18.5mm (28mm equiv.) F2.8 lens
  • Fujifilm ‘film simulation’ modes including Classic Chrome, but missing Acros
  • 91-point hybrid autofocus system (phase and contrast detect)
  • New ‘snapshot’ snap focus modes
  • Up to 6fps burst shooting
  • 4K/15p or 1080/60p video capture
  • Fixed rear touchscreen, autofocus joystick
  • Wi-Fi + Bluetooth LE

The XF10 offers really solid image quality and is essentially a cut-down Fujifilm X70, which was itself Fujifilm’s take on the Ricoh GR series, though it shared some design philosophy with the company’s successful X100 series that uses a less-wide-angle 35mm-equivalent lens.

But compared to the X70, the XF10 brings simpler controls, an even more compact build, and unfortunately, a step backwards in both autofocus and general speed of operation that may be be off-putting to anyone used to the fluidity of a modern smartphone experience…
