Fujifilm Corporation announced The new camera (X-S10) of (X-series) without mirror.
The new model is a slight departure from other Fujifilm cameras, and features a control scheme that will be familiar to photographers of other camera systems.
It also has plenty of features that are convenient for video recorders, including a fully articulated display, in-body image stabilization and a microphone input.
The new camera (X-S10) is available from November for $ 999 without a lens, and is equipped with a lens for $ 1,399 or $ 1499.
And unlike other Fujifilm cameras, such as the (X-T4), (X-T3) or (X-T30), the (X-S10) relies on the camera dial and front and rear control dials, like many Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras.
It also has a dial to switch between emulating 18 movies, and this setup looks strange to current Fujifilm camera owners, but it could make the camera more attractive to those coming from other systems.
The X-S10 has a more prominent grip than most previous Fujifilm cameras, and the grip makes it easier to hold the camera with one hand.
The camera uses a 1260 mAh battery found in many of the company’s old cameras. It also ditches the dual (SD) card slots found on high-end models.
Fujifilm is promoting the new camera as a hybrid camera, which means it should appeal to photographers and videographers.
The (X-S10) contains a (X-Trans IV CMOS) sensor with 26.1 megapixels and an autofocus system.
Fujifilm says the 5-axis in-body image stabilization system on the X-S10 is 30 percent smaller and 30 percent lighter than the system used in the X-T4.
The microphone port is installed over the touch screen hinge, so the microphone cable will not block the screen when it is turned over.
A new feature allows the camera to automatically choose between simulating (Provia), (Velvia) and (Astia) movies, depending on the context of the shot, while the (Shooting Priority Auto) setting lets you tell the camera what kind of scene you are shooting.
You can now also shoot RAW as well as JPEG images in automatic modes, which is something you cannot do with other Fujifilm cameras.
The (X-S10) appears to be the first in a series of new cameras from the company, and if successful, the company will likely release a version later.
