JUST ANNOUNCED: Fujifilm Introduces the X-S10 Mirrorless Digital Camera
15 October 2020 | Category: General News
FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has announced the launch of FUJIFILM X-S10, the newest addition to the X Series family of compact and lightweight mirrorless digital cameras. Available in mid-November with a variety of lens kit options, the X-S10 is equipped with top features including a 26.1MP X-TransTM CMOS 4 sensor, a high-speed image processing engine and in-body image stabilisation. (IBIS). Powerful yet small, the X-S10 is easy to use and produces impressive image quality in a compact body.
The X-S10 is a perfect fit for anyone who needs a lightweight camera with professional features for both photo and video. It offers something for everyone; the popular AUTO/SP (Scene Position) Mode automatically adjusts the camera settings to produce stunning images without the need to make fine adjustments to images settings.
The advanced video capabilities can either produce sharp 4K/30P 4:2:2 10-bit video or high-speed full-HD video at 240fps. The vari-angle LCD screen that can also be flipped forward 180 degrees, giving everyone from photographers and filmmakers to vloggers and hobbyists something to love about this camera.
A newly developed, smaller IBIS for its compact body
The camera’s in-body image stabilisation (IBIS) mechanism is approximately 30% smaller in volume and weight than the previous model*. Despite its small size of just 450g (1.21lb), the X-S10 delivers up to 6.0-stops* of five-axis image stabilisation. It is also the first mid-range X Series camera to use a motion sensor retention mechanism, which is a mechanical shock absorber that guards against slight vibrations that may come from the shutter unit, adding another level of stability to ensure that image clarity and resolution are maintained.
To further assist with hand-held stability, the X-S10 features a large, ergonomic magnesium-alloy grip, making it easier to keep the camera stable when larger lenses are mounted. The design also features a magnesium-alloy front and top-plate to keep the body rigid and robust.

FUJIFILM’S legendary Film Simulations and updated AUTO functions for outstanding image quality
FUJIFILM’s iconic Film Simulation modes were created to celebrate the history of photographic film by digitising some of the industry’s most iconic analog films. The X-S10 features 18 exclusive modes, including ETERNA Bleach Bypass, which creates a beautiful, de-saturated, high-contrast look.
The X-S10 also offers an updated [AUTO / SP (Scene Position)] mode automatically adjusts shooting settings to suit a given scene, without the need to make fine adjustments in settings. Now, photographing landscapes with clarity and vivid colors, making portraits with beautiful skin tones, or creating evenly balanced images in back-lit conditions is possible, regardless of skill level.
Dependable AF and high-speed burst mode performance for those important moments
The combination of the X-S10’s high-speed AF and AF-tracking performance with the X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor’s 2.16 million phase detection pixels and X-Processor 4’s computing power provides quick and accurate autofocus results, achieving focus in as fast as 0.02 seconds in some cases, even at -7.0 EV*.
The X-S10 is equipped with high-precision Tracking AF for moving subjects and Face / Eye AF function to track a subject’s face and eyes. Blackout-free high-speed burst shooting at 8fps with the mechanical shutter and 30fps with the electronic shutter can also be achieved.

Vari-angle LCD monitor and viewfinder that supports three boost modes
The X-S10 has a vari-angle LCD monitor that can rotate up to 180 degrees, making it useful not only for selfies but also to make stills and videos from various camera positions.
The viewfinder’s Live View function has three boost modes available including Low Light Priority, Resolution Priority, and Frame Rate Priority.
Extensive video-recording functions
The X-S10 generates 4K video from the amount of data equivalent to 6K to ensure the footage is high resolution with low noise. It supports recording 4K/30p 4:2:0 8-bit video onto an SD card inserted in the camera, and outputs 4K/30p 4:2:2 10-bit video via the HDMI port. The camera is also capable of high-speed full-HD recording at 240p, producing up to 10x slow-motion footage of a split-second motion of a fast-moving subject.
In addition to the camera’s IBIS, its Digital Image Stabilisation (DIS) mode will powerfully compensate for any camera shake even when walking with the camera. Adding IS Mode Boost provides even more stabilisation, nearly eliminating camera shake when it is used from a fixed, hand-held position.
With a dedicated movie recording button on its top-plate, the X-S10 lets users start recording video even while they are creating still images. Exposure and focus settings are automatically recorded in AUTO mode.
