Stuff’s editor-in-chief, Toby Shapshak, takes the wraps off Fujifilm‘s newly launched, highly anticipated midranger — the Fujifilm X-S10. It’s no secret that here at Stuff, we’re particularly fond of Fujifilm’s X-range of mirrorless kit. But the top-tier products run well into the tens of thousands. Fujifilm has been good at making the range more affordable, with the launch of the entry-level X-A7 (R12,000), the impressive X-T200 (also R12,000) and the more robust X-Pro3 that comes in at R24,000.
A new entry into the mirrorless market, Fujifilm’s X-S10 is the first in its mid-range to feature In-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS) tech and starts at R18,000 for the body only.
The X-S10 ranks close to the high-end X-T4 and X-H1 in terms of features, with IBIS being the stand-out feature. Beyond that, it’s got a 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and Fuji’s X-Processor 4 processing engine. The X-T4 is fitted with the same components, which is impressive considering the X-T4 costs R36,800. Snagging a lot of the same internals for half that cost? That’s worth having.
