Fujifilm X-T10 bridges gap between entry-level X-series cameras and pro-level X-T1

The Fujifilm X-series family continues to expand, this time with a new premium interchangeable lens camera -- the Fujifilm X-T10.  The X-T10 can be considered the younger sibling to the rugged, higher-end Fuji X-T1 (Fuji X-T1 vs Fuji X-T10). Whereas the larger, weather-sealed X-T1 is aimed at advanced enthusiasts and professional photographers, the new lighter, sleeker X-T10 is focused more for mid-range, intermediate-level photographers and enthusiasts.

The smaller, lighter X-T10 offers many of the same bells and whistles as its larger sibling, but also offers more intermediate-level photographers some enticing features such as an Auto Mode Switch lever to quickly hop into fully-automatic scene mode shooting, an overall more compact, travel-friendly and lightweight design, and a built-in pop-up flash.

As with the X-T1, the X-T10 uses the same 16-megapixel X-Trans II chip and EXR Processor II for high-resolution images, great high ISO capabilities, plus all-around quick and snappy performance. The X-T10 gets things into focus quickly thanks to super fast Hybrid AF with on-sensor phase-detect, and it also features Fuji's new Zone and Wide/Tracking AF modes. The large, bright electronic viewfinder has a very fast 0.005s refresh rate for a better real-time view through the viewfinder, plus improvements like Natural Live View and automatic brightness adjustment.

As with other recent Fujifilm cameras, the X-T10 includes a host of film simulation image presets, including their most recent one, Classic Chrome, as well as various shooting effects and filters and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
