Fujifilm has announced the X-S10, price tag from £949, a new lightweight camera offering six stops of image stabilisation.
Inside the Fujifilm X-S10 is a 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS sensor and X Processor 4 for fast operation. This is the same combination found in Fuji’s flagship X-T4, which the X-S10 sits just below in Fujifilm’s X Series range.
One of the Fujifilm X-S10’s key selling points is its in-body image stabilisation that provides up to 6EV of shutter speed compensation.
Another key feature of the X-S10 is that Fujifilm has beefed up its Film Simulation and Scene modes. But intriguingly, the X-S10 has been programmed to automatically adjust these modes based on the scene you are shooting. The new Fujifilm camera will automatically tweak its scene mode settings for more accurate colours, skin tones, lighting and more.
The Fujifilm X-S10 offers 425 individually selectable AF points using both phase and contrast detection. Meanwhile the X-S10 sensor’s 2.16 million phase detection pixels, while combined with the X Processor 4, promises to achieve focus as quickly as 0.02secs even at -7EV. Face and Eye AF are also on board.
For shooting video, the Fujifilm X-S10’s maximum resolution is 4096 x 2160 (AKA DCI 4K) at 29.97/25/24/23.98fps. Internal recording maxes out at 8-Bit 4:2:0, but if there’s an external storage unit connected via HDMI it’s possible to record in 4:2:2 10-Bit.
The X-S10 can record in any of the Film Simulation modes but there’s also F-Log recording for more scope for grading. It’s also possible to record Full-HD footage and in Highspeed recording mode it can be set to 240fps for up to 10x slow-motion playback.
Other features include a vari-angle LCD that can rotate up to 180 degrees, a 3.5mm microphone port, USB-C adapter for connecting headphones and a burst rate of 8fps via the mechanical shutter and up to 20fps when using the electronic shutter.
