ePhotozine from Conclusion:
If you’re looking for a great digital camera, with excellent handling, but don’t want to spend £2000 on a camera, then the Fujifilm X-S10, with its price of around £1000 (depending on lens choice), would be a great choice. The camera is great value for money, being available for £999 with the 15-45mm lens, although it’s worth noting that if you want the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens, then the kit price is £1299.
Before buying into any camera system, it’s worth having a look at the lenses available, and whether you can find the lenses you’re likely to want for your photography (and how much they cost). Luckily here, Fujifilm has a wide range of X-Mount lenses, thanks to the X-mount system being around since 2012.
The camera gives excellent handling and feels great in the hand. In fact, when you pick up the camera, it just feels right, everything is where you’d expect it to be, and the handgrip is large enough to be comfortable, yet the camera is still compact, so you get the benefit of a smaller camera than your standard DSLR. There are front and rear command dials, an ISO button, and Q button, with enough controls to make it quick and easy to change settings so you can spend more time about taking the photo, rather than changing settings.
You’re getting the same excellent image quality at Fujifilm’s flagship camera, the X-T4. Albeit without the weather-sealing of the more expensive model, and without 4K 60fps video. You still get in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), 4K CINE video at 30fps, and a high-quality metal body, as well as high-speed continuous shooting options. We are happy to highly recommend this camera, with the only negatives being relatively minor complaints.
