Product Overview

Fujifilm X-S10 is an entry-level, compact and lightweight APS-C mirrorless camera in the X-mount system. Its calling card is the 26MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor, X-Processor 4, and up to 6-stops of five-axis image stabilization.
The first of these advanced core components are found in the series' flagship model, the XT-4. As a result, the camera is able to deliver fast autofocus as well as high-bitrate 4K / FHD video recording.
Indeed, the new IBIS system in the X-S10 is 30% smaller and light that that found in the XT-4, despite delivering better performance.
Like other Fujifilm cameras, the X-S10 offers the company's unique film simulation modes. A total of 18 Film Simulation modes are included, among them the vivid and high-contrast “Velvia” and high-contrast yet low-saturation “ETERNA Bleach Bypass” which produces impressive atmosphere.

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The X-S10 offers 4K recording at up to 30fps at 4:2:0 8-bit quality to internal memory. In-camera Raw processing is there if you'd like to edit a shot a few different ways, and it all works from the camera's rear screen. The stabilized sensor and front-facing screen are good news for vloggers.

Pros
  • Stabilized sensor and front-facing screen
  • Excellent image stabilization
  • Good battery life
  • Built-in weather protection
Cons
  • No telephoto zoom
  • No 4K60 support

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Fujifilm X-S10 is a very good option for landscape photography. It features a very wide shutter speed range to help you capture both quick moments or take complex long-exposure shots. Its fully-articulated touchscreen allows you to easily shoot from above your head or below the hip and is bright enough to be easily seen even under direct sunlight.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • Excellent image quality out-of-the-box
  • Fully-articulated touchscreen allows you to monitor your recording even when the camera is pointed at you
  • In-body image stabilization
  • Good video quality in both FHD and 4k
Cons
  • Not weather-sealed
  • Only capable of shooting 8-bit 4:2:2 color video
  • No dedicated headphone and microphone jacks

t3[4]

Sentiment Score 88%
Reviewers from t3 have found the following***:
Fuji X-S10 has a 26-megapixel sensor and can shoot 4K resolution video at a standard 30 frames per second capture rate. Unlike more professional cameras we get a single rather than double SD card slot, but at its sub-£1000 price point that's hardly a deal-breaker. Fuji claims the camera is as quick to find focus as a blink-of-an-eye 0.02 seconds. The f/2.8-4 18-55mm kit lens manages to hold detail into the corners of the frame.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • Fantastic image quality
  • Fast autofocus
  • Excellent battery life
Cons
  • No MicroSD card slot
  • No telephoto lens

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The X-S10 uses the same 26.1MP back-illuminated sensor as the Fujifilm X-T4. It's a tried-and-tested performer that's still the best of its kind. IBIS system is very useful for smoothing out handheld jitters in video. Dynamic range is also very impressive, particularly when you take advantage of the built-in ‘DR’ options.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Very good battery life
  • Excellent IBIS system
Cons
  • Not as powerful as rivals

Sentiment Score 90%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
Fujifilm X-S10 is the sixth camera to come with the X-Trans 4 sensor. Film Simulation modes are a joy to use, too, providing plenty of scope to experiment. In-body image stabilisation helps greatly here, steadying the camera automatically for longer exposures. You can shoot crisp 4K footage at up to 30fps, with a drop down to 1080p resolution.

Pros
  • Fantastic image quality
  • In-body image stabilisation
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Not for everyone
