The delivery guy just dropped off the new Fuji X-T10.
It was just announced two days ago by Fuji as a baby sister to the mighty X-T1 (which I reviewed and loved). This camera is smaller but should, according to Fuji, deliver the same output as the X-T1 as they share the same imaging APS-C sized X-Trans II sensor.
Naturally, a smaller body means less landscape for buttons and dials and we can see straight away that this trade-off means no ISO dial on the top of the camera.
Here’s the unboxing of the X-T10, supplied with the 16-50mm and 27mm f/2.8 lenses:
The X-T10 feels much like an X30 – roughly the same size and shape. Given that it’s actually an APS-C sized sensor based mirrorless camera, this is great news. I must say that it feels less solid than I expected. Its buttons and dials aren’t as tight as I’d like them to be.
I expect the aperture dial on the back to move inadvertently from ‘auto’ to f/22 on more than a few occasions. I hope to be proven wrong about this (who uses shutter priority mode, anyhow?).
Stay tuned for my review which will be published here.
