Fujifilm has put forwarded a new premium compact camera that looks stylish, is very much travel-friendly and should appeal to those who are obsessed with instant slice thanks to the numerous photo filters and Bluetooth been built in.
The Fujifilm XF10 is a similar size to the Fujifilm X70 compact camera but is come (280g compared with 340g) and the XF10 features a much-improved design, including a better-looking grip. As we're talking about aesthetics, the retro-inspired XF10 is within reach in the 'will never go out of fashion' shade of black as well as a champagne gold colour which definitely has a 70s vibe to it.
Inside the XF10 is a 24.2 megapixel APS-C make an estimate of sensor which, smartphone shooters take note, is 14x larger (size-wise, not pixel count) than most sensors in standard smartphones and take on the 'smart' theme, the camera features Bluetooth so it can be connected to a smart device and images/video shared instantly to Instagram, Facebook and all of the other public social media channels. There's also a 'square mode' which allows users to switch to a 1:1 relationship so images captured with the XF10 are Instagram ready straight away.

More advanced photographers may review that a hotshoe is missing, in comparison with the X70, which means you can't use an optical viewfinder, external classy or other accessories.
The lens is fixed at 18.5mm (equivalent to 28mm on 35mm format which is similar to several premium smartphones) with a f/2.8 hole but the digital teleconverter function can be used to extend the XF10's reach to 35mm and 50mm on a 35mm format.
