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.
- 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…
