Fujifilm Unveils Lightweight and Portable 16MP X-T10 Mirrorless Camera

Fujfilm has unveiled the new Fujfilm X-T10, a premium interchangeable lens camera that joins the X-Series digital camera line-up. The sleek Fujfilm X-T10 is designed to deliver pro image quality, usability and portability with its new autofocus system, large electronic Real Time Viewfinder, and continuous shooting speed of up to 8 frames per second (fps). The X-T10 also has a short lag time of just 0.005 seconds.

The compact and lightweight Fujfilm X-T10 uses the latest generation 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor with built-in phase detection autofocus along with the high-performance EXR Processor II, and is compatible with all FUJINON lenses to deliver excellent resolution and image quality.

(Fujifilm also introduced the Fujinon XF90mm F2 R LM WR, a weather-resistant, fast-aperture prime lens.)

The Fujfilm X-T10 uses a new auto focus system that complements the fast and accurate single-point auto focus system with new Zone and Wide/Tracking modes, which use 77 autofocus points across a wider area to improve the camera’s ability to track and capture moving subjects.

The Zone mode allows users to choose a 3x3, 3x5 or 5x5 zone from the 77-point auto focus area. When combined with the AF-C continuous focusing mode, the camera continues tracking a subject in the selected zone. The 3x3 and 3x5 zones at the center, offer fast focusing with the use of the built-in phase detection pixels.

In the Wide/Tracking mode, the camera displays the area in focus, identified automatically out of the 77-point auto focus area (Wide in the AF-S mode) and tracks the focus area’s subject across the entire 77-point AF area (Tracking in the AF-C mode). This makes it possible to maintain focus on a subject that moves vertically, horizontally, and back and forth.

The Fujfilm X-T10 has an all-new design that includes the best X-Series functionality into a compact/lightweight body, perfect for travelling light. The X-T10 top and base plates are made of a lightweight, but highly rigid, die-cast magnesium. The top plate features three precision-milled aluminum dials that give the X-T10 a premium feel and allow users to intuitively adjust the combination of aperture, shutter speed and shooting functions while concentrating on picture taking.

The X-T10’s back panel has a 3-inch (920K-dot) tilting LCD monitor that makes above head and close to the ground shooting easy. The X-T10 also has a new Auto Mode Switch lever for selecting the fully-automatic Advanced SR Auto mode. In this mode, the camera automatically chooses optimum settings for a given scene.

The X-T10 body also features an integrated pop-up flash, positioned in the center of the top plate that uses Super Intelligent Flash to automatically adjust light output according to the scene type.

The Fujfilm X-T10 is compatible with every current Fujinon lens—18 premium lenses ranging from ultra-wide-angle to telephoto, including five fast aperture prime lenses. Together with optional accessories including X- mount adapters and macro extension tubes, users can experience a full range of photographic possibilities.
