The X-T10 comes slightly more than a year and half after the company’s flagship X-T1 camera, and according to Fujifilm, incorporates a lot of the feedback they have had received from early users of the X-T1. It’s a mid-class camera that targets the younger generation, but should still draw plenty of attention from photographers of all ages because of its gorgeous retro styling.
The X-T10 inherits the 16MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor and EXR Processor II from the X-T1 and gains an AF system that was actually better than that in the X-T1 (until a recent firmware update brought them up to par). It’s not weather-sealed though, which was a key selling point of the X-T1, but of course that benefit only worked if the camera is paired with weather-sealed lenses.
The X-T10 is also a lot more affordable than the X-T1 was at launch, so you could say that it is a slightly stripped down but still entirely capable prosumer camera that hits the sweet spot in terms of price versus feature and quality.
So what’s changed from the X-T1 to the X-T10? Well, at just 381g, the camera is slightly lighter compared to the 440g of its older sibling, and at 118 x 83 x 41 mm, it’s also slightly smaller (the X-T1 measures 129 x 90 x 47 mm).
The viewfinder is also slightly smaller, with 0.66x magnification versus 0.77x on the X-T1. This means you won’t be able use the dual image function from the X-T1, but the good thing is that the X-T10’s Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) lag time is on par with the X-T1 at just 0.005 seconds, giving you one of the more responsive EVFs in the market.
Colors are again fairly true to life, so we didn’t miss not having an optical viewfinder. One of the advantages of having an EVF is that any exposure/white balance adjustments you dial into the camera will be reflected in the viewfinder, so it’s practically like shooting in live view mode with the advantage of holding the camera up to your
