FUJIFILM X-S10 live-action review
Among the many camera manufacturers. FUJIFILM X-S10 is characterized by camera development that is close to the artist.
In creating works, we are good at beautiful colors that other companies cannot achieve, and many people choose cameras in search of “Fujifilm colors.”
This time, in such a Fujifilm X-S10 system, we will thoroughly review the attractiveness based on the examples taken using the latest model, “FUJIFILM X-S10,” released on November 19, 2020.
Fujifilm’s mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera, which is gaining support from individualists
The “FUJIFILM X-S10” introduced is a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera developed by the camera manufacturer FUJIFILM.
At FUJIFILM, we have developed many cameras that are gaining support from those who are conscious of “creating works”, and the FUJIFILM X-S10 is also a model that you can feel its charm.
At FUJIFILM, we have been focusing on film development for a long time, so we are more particular about color expression than other companies. It is also characteristic that there are colors that can be produced only by Fujifilm Mirrorless Camera.
Attractive compact and lightweight body and easy-to-use operability
The FUJIFILM X-S10 introduced this time is equipped with the traditional performance of FUJIFILM. At the same time, the camera body has been made smaller and lighter in consideration of portability and expanded in terms of functionality.
A simple and easy-to-store exterior design with no extra protrusions has been adopted. The weight is about 465g, which is as light as a mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera.
In addition, the buttons and dial layout, which are conscious of ease of use, have been improved compared to the existing models, and the camera was born as an easier-to-use camera while maintaining the good camera performance of the Fujifilm mirrorless camera.
From here, we will review the appearance features while using the actual photograph of the FUJIFILM X-S10.
Earlier, I introduced the design as simple and easy to store, but I will explain how easy it is to use in terms of appearance.
New design that does not require unique operations
I have reviewed many Fujifilm products, but they all had a “unique operation feeling”.
Even with the basic settings, it is necessary to make full use of the dial, and I remember being surprised at the difference in operability with other companies’ cameras.
The FUJIFILM X-S10 uses the traditional Fujifilm Mirrorless Camera method for basic operability but uses three dials mainly for setting changes.
On the mode dial that specifies the shooting mode, custom positions that can record your favorite shooting settings (image quality settings, focus settings, continuous shooting settings, etc.) are arranged from [C1] to [C4]. You can record in 4 places.
Portability that is not burdensome to carr
The portability of the camera body can be said to be a concern when using a single-lens reflex camera.
The FUJIFILM X-S10 uses a simple design with no extra protrusions that hinder storage.
However, as an improvement in the holding feeling when holding the camera, only the grip part protrudes.
SLR cameras are combined with a lens, but thanks to this gripping part, a sense of stability is created in shooting regardless of the combination with any lens.
Equipped with a vari-angle LCD, you can use it freely.
The FUJIFILM X-S10 uses a vari- angle LCD that can be moved left, right, up, and down on the LCD screen on the camera’s back.
When shooting outdoors, if the LCD screen is not parallel to your line of sight, it may be difficult to see due to reflections.
In photography, there are also shootings such as “low angle” and “high angle” that change the camera’s height, so the vari-angle LCD is compatible with such shooting styles.
From here, we will introduce the performance aspects of the camera based on the actual shots.
Since FUJIFILM is characterized by color development, I will take all the examples posted here in JPEG format.
Full basic performance
The FUJIFILM X-S10 is conscious of a beginner-friendly concept such as a compact and lightweight body and easy-to-use operability. Still, it also has a full range of basic performance.
It is a model with the latest technology, about 26.1 million pixels, and is equipped with “X-Trans CMOS4” for the image sensor and “X-Processor4” for the image processing engine.
With these latest image sensors and image processing engines, you can feel the high performance centered on AF performance and realize quick and accurate focusing.
Equipped with a newly developed anti-vibration unit inside the body
The feature of the FUJIFILM X-S10, a newly developed in-body anti-vibration unit has been installed.
The anti-vibration unit is a mechanism that corresponds to a general image stabilization mechanism. and the “anti-vibration” unit installed in the X-S10 contributes to the miniaturization of the body while maintaining the same performance as the anti-vibration unit installed in the upper model. It has made compact to do.
The anti-vibration effect is up to 5 axes and six steps, which is an excellent performance that can use in scenes where the shutter speed tends to decrease, such as when shooting at night.
“Film simulation” that Fujifilm is proud of
The FUJIFILM X-S10 is also equipped with a “film simulation” function that allows you to experience the color expressiveness characteristic of Fujifilm.
You can choose from 18 types of film simulations, and you can choose the finish that suits your taste.
With a single-lens reflex camera, the state generally called “shooting and taking out” feels dull, but with Fujifilm, which applies film simulation from the normal state, the texture and color development is due to “shooting and taking out”. There is.
In addition to the film simulation in the initial state, you can also make fine adjustments such as tone and clarity to achieve the finish you like.
Not limited to the FUJIFILM X-S10, one of the features of FUJIFILM’s mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is that you can complete the expression in the camera.
