Fujifilm has just announced the XF10, a new tiny camera with a big sensor. It’s an ultra-lightweight X Series compact camera that boasts an APS-C CMOS sensor at its core.
The pocket-sized camera shoots 24.2-megapixel photos (with a 3:2 aspect ratio), 4K video (30-min continuous recording), and Full HD high-speed video.
On the front of the camera is a Fujinon 18.5mm f/2.8 fixed lens (equivalent to a 28mm lens in 35mm terms). A Digital Teleconverter feature lets you capture photos with 35mm and 50mm equivalent focal lengths as well.
No, the camera doesn’t have a 125x zoom lens, but the fixed lens allows the camera to weigh in at just 280g (9.9oz).
The back of the XF10 features a 3-inch, 1.04-million-dot touchscreen LCD with simple operation — perfect for those who enjoy taking pictures with smartphones but wish to have the better image quality that comes from using a larger sensor.
The Fujifilm XF10 is the first X Series camera with “Square Mode,” which lets you shoot 1:1 aspect ratio photos with a flick of the touchscreen. Captured photos can also be easily transferred to a smartphone via Bluetooth, convenient for those wishing to post the square photos to Instagram.
Other features and specs include an ISO range of 200-12800 (expandable to 100-51200), 11 Film Simulations, 19 Advanced Filters (including two new ones: “Rich & Fine” and “Monochrome [Near Infrared]”.
Available in Black and Champagne Gold, the Fujifilm XF10 will be available in August 2018 with a price tag of $500.
