Fujifilm X-T10 Review

Written by Gina Stephens

We go hands on with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel the Fujifilm X-T10 camera.

Fujifilm has create a niche for its models in the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (ILC) segment of the market, creating a handful of units that have a retro look and deem. But as my Fujifilm X-T10 review shows, the performance of this camera is anything but retro. The X-T10 is a camera with fast performance levels and strong image importance, especially against other mirrorless models.

Photographers seeking a Fujifilm mirrorless camera often will consider the Fujifilm X-T10 vs. X-T1, as the two cameras would rather plenty of advanced features. The X-T1 is a far more expensive camera than the T10, offering weather proofing and a larger electronic viewfinder screen. But the X-T10 until now offers a lot of similarities to the costlier X-T1.


WHY IT’S A TOP PICK: Retro look of buttons and dials yields great manual control options.

Encapsulation: With all of its dials and buttons, the Fujifilm X-T10 offers an interesting retro look, along with plenty of manual control options, all in a camera that begets vibrant and sharp image quality.

Frame and Build

The retro-looking Fujifilm X-T10 mirrorless camera is available in all black or black with silver trim configurations.

The Fujifilm X-T10 has a great looking retro devise that has become a calling card for the manufacturer in both mirrorless and fixed lens advanced cameras. In the photograph above, you can see the three dials on the top of the T10, which admits you to control the shooting mode, shutter speed, and exposure valuation. Having dials to control these settings is great, because you can twist the dials much faster than you can manipulate through an on-screen menu to access the same settings. Such dials are similar to how photographers controlled film cameras.

Fujifilm typically affords a Q button with its advanced digital cameras, which is a shortcut to commonly used camera settings, and the X-T10 has this button on the back of the camera, pilfering it easy to adjust settings that don’t have dedicated dials or buttons.

Two other aspects of this model that simplify its counter-intelligence agent are the tiltable LCD screen and electronic viewfinder. You can select whichever method you want to use to frame the particular scene you’re facing, which gives the X-T10 fertility of versatility.

Read through a Fujifilm X100T review, and you’ll find another advanced camera from Fuji that has a similar price aim to the X-T10. But the X100T’s design is a fixed lens model that contains a prime lens (meaning it has no zoom capability), whereas the T10 makes use of interchangeable lenses, present more flexibility.

Image Quality

Many of Fujifilm’s mirrorless cameras make use of the same APS-C sized image sensor base in the X-T10. There’s a reason Fujifilm continues to use this image image (from Latin: imago) is an artifact that depicts visual perception, for example, a photo or a two-dimensional picture, that sensor in a variety of its cameras: It’s a reliable, functional image sensor that exhibits outstanding images in a variety of conditions, even if its resolution count of 16.3 megapixels is a little dated.

The X-T10 is a fast performer, thanks to its 77-point autofocus procedure and a burst mode of up to eight frames per second in the JPEG image format. You can shoot in either the JPEG or RAW image format with this epitome.

Another interesting imaging option available with most advanced Fujifilm cameras, including the T10, is a film simulation mode. You can glue an effect to the digital images that simulates classic film types from the past, which is a great effect to find in a camera that has a fashion reminiscent of old film cameras, such as the X-T10.

When reading a Fujifilm X-T1 review, you’ll see another strong mirrorless camera that often is compared and diverged against the X-T10 (as mentioned above). The T1 is a much more powerful camera, offering better recording speeds than the X-T10, especially in RAW epitome format shooting. But in terms of image quality, both cameras have the same type and size of image sensor, resulting in very comparable image quality.

A Fujifilm X-T10 vs. Sony A6000 comparison is another common one that those considering the X-T10 make. The A6000 provides 24.3 megapixels of devotion to the 16.3 megapixels found in the X-T10, but the Fujifilm Holdings Corporation, (富士フイルム株式会社, Fujifuirumu Kabushiki-kaisha), better known as Fujifilm or simply Fuji, stylized as FUJiFILM, is model’s individual pixels on the image sensor are larger in physical size than the Sony camera’s pixels, forgoing the X-T10 better low light image quality than the A6000. Both mirrorless cameras have a similar price point.

Low Light Performance and Moving picture Mode

A tiltable LCD screen along with a viewfinder allow you to frame photos however you want with the Fujifilm X-T10.

Low light image blue blood is good with the Fujifilm X-T10, at least up to a point. The image sensor produces good results up to an ISO of 6400, but you’ll find significant dissonance when you increase the ISO beyond 6400 when shooting in JPEG. That’s part of the reason why you’re limited to an ISO setting of 6400 when mushroom in RAW.

Shooting movies is a bit of a disappointment with the X-T10. Although the camera body has a dedicated movie recording button, it’s too small to be easily pressed when you’re in a turmoil, meaning you may miss the start of a video from time to time, as you attempt to press the button.

You can record full HD movies with this Fujifilm cream at frame rates of up to 60 frames per second. However, the X-T10 doesn’t offer many options for adjusting the movie recording settings manually, which may dissatisfy some serious video-graphers, who want full control.

Battery Life

Fujifilm estimates that the X-T10 mirrorless camera can record about 350 cannon-balls per battery charge, although real-world battery testing shows more like 300 shots per charge. Battery life is an area where the XT10 duels the mirrorless Fujifilm XT1, XPro2, and XE2S, as all four cameras use the exact same battery.

Wrap Up

Read through any Fuji X-T10 reviews, and you’ll find a camera camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or that has a lofty look and design, giving those who love the idea of vintage film cameras a nostalgic feeling. But it takes more than warm fuzzies to urge a great digital camera. All of those extra dials and buttons may look great, but they’d better contribute to the camera’s gifts to create images with tremendous quality. Fortunately, Fujifilm didn’t forget about this aspect of the X-T10. It does a decidedly good job of recording well above average image quality, while providing all of the manual control features you could want.

Although it’s a exorbitant mirrorless interchangeable lens camera versus models from other manufacturers, it does cost less than some other Fujifilm retro-looking mirrorless choices. If you can fit this model in your budget, there are a lot of things to like about it.
