This Is The New Fujifilm X-T10, Fuji’s Answer to the A6000
We have been talking about the rumors regarding this camera for some time now, but the time for guesses and assumptions are over. Tonight, Fujifilm officially unveiled the new X-T10, the younger sibling to the wildly popular X-T1.
On the surface, you can see the similar design language used in both the X-T1 and X-T10. But the X-T10 brings its own twist to the SLR-styled mirrorless camera market. Gone is the ISO dial on the X-T10, replaced by a new drive mode dial – pointing to the more consumer focus of this body.
The base for the X-T10 is the same as it has been for all of the recent Fujifilm releases; the tried and true 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans sensor. What the X-T10 misses in megapixels, it makes up for in other features. Namely a super fast 8fps burst mode, and newly redesigned 77point AF system that Fuji says improves greatly on the tracking abilities of the X-Series camera.
The X-T10 is clearly Fuji’s answer to the increasingly popular Sony A6000, coming in at a similar price point and offering similar features. On paper, the two cameras match up nicely, though Sony is expected to announce their next generation A6000 camera this week – so we will have to wait and see what Sony comes up with.
