Fujifilm's X-S10 Boasts 4K Recording and 6 Stops of Image Stabilization

The Fujifilm X-S10 is an APS-C camera that packs punch. 

The X-S10 is a modestly priced mirrorless camera that brings the functionality and performance of the X-T4 into an ASP-C body. Featuring a 26.1MP X-Trans sensor and the X-Processor 4, the in-body image stabilization offers 6 stops of shake correction while still being 30% smaller than the X-T4

Key Features 

  • X-Trans 26.1 Megapixel
  • Back side illuminated CMOS 4 Sensor
  • APS-C Camera Format
  • X-Processor 4 Quad-Core Imaging Engine
  • ISO 160-12,800 Sensitivity Range
  • 6 Stops 5-Axis Image Stabilization
  • 4K up to 30fps

The X-S10 offers internal 4K DCI recording up to 30fps at 4:2:0 8-bit or full-HD at 240fps.

However, if you want to record externally, 4K jumps to 4:2:2 10-bit via the HDMI port. 

  • 4096 x 2160 at 30p / 200 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM
  • 3840 x 2160 at 30p / 200 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM

Fujifilm has also added 18 Film Simulation Modes, including the ETERNA Bleach Bypass found on the X-T4. In addition to IBIS, there's a Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) mode to aid in smoother shots while operating handheld.

The design of the X-S10 is simplistic yet functional. The camera features a dedicated movie record button on the top that allows you to record video in still mode. There's a fully articulating 3" LCD with 1.04 million dots that makes it ideal for vlogging or front-facing camera work. The built-in electronic viewfinder isn't as robust as the X-T4, but boasts 2.36 million dots. 

Autofocus is on par with the X-T4. It touts 2.16 million phase detection points with quick and accurate autofocus results. According to Fujifilm, shooters can expect focus as fast as 0.02 seconds even at -7.0 EV*3. The mirrorless camera also offers tracking AF and face/eye AF as well.

The Fujifilm X-S10 is available for pre-order and is expected to arrive in November for $999 (body-only).

For the XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 kit, it's $1,399.

The XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR kit is $1,499.

For the price, this is a great release, IMHO. The only other camera with capability of 10bit at that price is the G9.

Err, the X-T4 was already in an ASP-C
