Fujifilm XF10 has recently been introduced with a huge 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor. Keeping ‘pocketability’ despite the big image sensor, the brand-new compact camera weighs 280 gr and includes a touch-supported LCD panel. Fujifilm has provided its amazing colour reproduction technology and there is a wide-angle, 18.5mm Fujinon fixed lens with an f/2.8 optimum aperture. The camera arrives as the successor to the Fujifilm X70 that was launched in 2016 with a 16-megapixel APS-C X-Trans II sensor together with an 18.5mm prime lens with a f/2.8 aperture. It will go on sale in the US at some time in August with a selling price tag of $499.95.
Comparable to the mirrorless Fujifilm X-100, the Fujifilm XF10 has a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor with a primary colour filtration system, supported by an 18.5mm Fujinon lens that has an f/2.8 aperture and operates with a Digital Tele-Converter feature that allows users choose focal lengths of 35mm or 50mm (35mm equivalent focal length). The new model does not contain a tilt screen, flash hot-shoe, or an aperture ring that were featured on the X70. Rather, Fujifilm has offered a PASM dial and a touch-supported LCD display. A preloaded ‘Square Mode’ is furthermore accessible to enable shooting in a square format with a 1:1 aspect ratio. In addition, there are 11 variations of Film Simulation Modes and 19 different versions of Advanced Filters, such as the freshly added ‘Rich & Fine’ and ‘Monochrome (NIR)’.
Along with enabling still photography, the Fujifilm XF10 offers 4K video recording assistance and has a dedicated Multi Focus Mode that is promoted to instantly synthesise consecutively shot images while switching the area of focus with 4K resolution. Likewise, there is 4K Burst function that lets consumers capture as many as 15 shots per second. A High-Speed HD Video function is also available to enable shooting of fast-moving subjects in slow motion. The innovative function requires UHS Speed Class 3 or higher memory cards. Additionally, there is Bluetooth LE (low energy) connectivity that can leveraged to transfer photos and videos wirelessly using the ‘Fujifilm Camera Remote’ application.
The Fujifilm XF10 comes with a lithium polymer battery that is claimed to provide power for as many as 330 still frames. The camera weighs 278.9 grams with its battery and a memory camera and measures 112.5×64.4x41mm.
