Fujifilm XF10 Officially Announced, Priced $499.95, Available for Pre-Order

fujifilm-xf10

Fujifiilm has just officially announced the Fujifilm XF10 camera. It is an enthusiast compact camera with a 24MP APS-C-size CMOS sensor and 28mm equiv. F2.8 lens, featuring a 91-point hybrid autofocus system, 6 fps burst shooting and 4K/15p video capture, twin control dials, a fixed 3″ touchscreen LCD, a built-in flash and a socket for an external microphone. This new camera costs $499.95, first available for Pre-Order at Amazon/ B&H.

The XF10 appears to be a simplified X70 with a higher resolution sensor. The XF10 has a mode dial in the place of the X70’s shutter speed control and it also loses the focus mode switch from the front plate and the tilting screen that made the X70 attractive to street shooters.

Like the Fujifilm X-E3, the XF10 has an AF joystick on the back, and uses directional swipes on the rear touchscreen instead of offering a four-way controller. One of the functions that can be accessed this way is ‘Square Mode’, which is a quick way to jump to shooting in the Instagram-tastic 1:1 aspect ratio.

Sadly the XF10 appears to use the previous generation processor meaning that, although it says ‘4K’ in the press release, it can only shoot at 15 fps, which doesn’t really count as video in our opinion. We’re also a little worried about what this might mean for the camera’s responsiveness. It also continues to use the older, smaller NP-95 battery.

The XF10 weighs 280g / 9.8oz with card and battery, making it around 18% lighter than the X70.
