The newest X-series camera from Fujifilm, the X-T10, will be released in late June as a ‘little brother’ to the popular X-T1 camera.

Featuring the same 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans II CMOS sensor as the X-T1 it boasts a compact, magnesium body that measures 118.4 x 82.8 x 40,8 mm and weighs 381 grams, compared with 129.0 x 89.8 x 46.7 mm and 390 grams for the X-T1. The camera body will be offered in all-black and silver and black livery in two configurations, one with the XC16-50mm lens for an RRP of AU$1,299 and the other with the XF18-55mm  lens for AU$1,499.

Like the X-T1, the X-T10 has three dials on its top panel, although the one to the left of the EVF housing is the mode dial on the X-T10, whereas it adjusted ISO sensitivity on the X-T1. As with the X-T1, aperture and shutter speeds are set via a ring on the lens or a dedicated dial on the camera, respectively. The X-T10’s mode dial carries settings for Panorama, two advanced modes, S, CL, CH and two bracketing modes. Scene recognition is employed in the full auto mode drawing on a database of 50 pattern combinations.
