With the X-S10 introduced today, Fujifilm is opening up another mirrorless X camera line that is more in the lower price range. Nevertheless, the camera has some attractive features for film-makers, such as image stabilization by a movable sensor (IBIS) and the output of a 4:2:2 10-bit signal via HDMI.
Recording is possible in DCI 4K (29.97p/25p/24p/23.98p, 200Mbps/100Mbps / Long-GOP) up to 30 minutes. In FullHD also 60p are possible, the slow motion options reach up to 240p. F-Log is not implemented, but 18 film simulation modes are available, including ETERNA Bleach Bypass.
The X-S10 is equipped with a 23.5mm×15.6mm (APS-C) X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor with 26.1MP and primary color filter, which you might already know from Fujifilm X-T4, and the X-Processor 4. As with the X-T4, the IBIS is additionally supported by a switchable, electronic image stabilization function (DIS), which crops the image section slightly and can use edge pixels for stabilization. The "IS (Image Stabilization) Boost" mode is also included.
The camera body offers a rather pronounced grip, which again reminds of the X-H1. The 3" large, 180° vari-angle LCD has a resolution of approx. 1 million pixels, the 0.39" OLED color viewfinder has a resolution of approx. 2.36 million pixels. A microphone can be connected via a 3.5mm input. Lenses are attached as always via the X-bayonet. The dimensions are 126.0mm × 85.1mm × 65.4mm, the camera weighs 465g.
For 973,82 Euro the Fujifilm X-S10 will be available (body-only) starting end of November.
