Fujifilm Manager X-S10 Presentation: “Not All Fujifilm Cameras will Have Selfie Screens in Future and We Don’t Hate Mode Dials”

The Japanese youtube channel カメラのキタムラ had a chat with a Fujifilm manager.

The talk gravitates around the Fujifilm X-S10, and quite frankly 90% of what is said is stuff you already know. Here we highlight a few things that we consider more interesting.

The Mode Dial

  • One of the things we wanted to do was “custom position”, which is available from C1 to C4
  • we don’t hate mode dials
  • The X-S10 is a “gate camera” for those who enter the X system. A mode dial for simply operation was adpoted for that reason

The mode dial with C-positions is actually like going back to the roots for the Fujifilm X series, as Fujifilm’s second X series camera ever had already one and it continued with its successor.

If you ask me, bringing it back in what is probably the best value for money mid-range camera on the market, is an extremely smart and urgently needed move. We need more folks to join the X club, and the X-S10 could serve this purpose very well.

Film Simulations + Auto Mode

  • It is no exaggeration to say that the first reason for wanting to use a Fujifilm camera is film simulation
  • By pressing the Q button after displaying the film simulation with the function dial, an explanation of that film simulation will appear
  • An increasing number of younger generations of photography enthusiasts have never shot on film
  • New SP mode will record also RAW and select everything for you, inlcluding film simulation

The Rise of Vary-Angle Screens (selfie screens)

  • Fujifilm is not trying to put vary-angle screens on every camera
  • Each camera has its own personality, and Fujifilm chooses whether to implement a selfie screen depending on the main shooting purpose
  • The 3-axis tilt LCD monitor works effectively for still image shooting, so Fujifilm thinks it will continue to be effective for cameras that focus on still images

In my opinion a 3-way tilt screen is superior also for video shooters. The only advantage of fully articulating screens, is if you want to take selfie images or film yourself.

B&H Photo Shipping First Batch Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0 R WR Lenses

Finally! BHphoto has finally started shipping the Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0, as reported also by our Fujifilm X-T member Michael here.

Finally arrived from B & H but my puppy won’t go outside with me to pose.

What a gorgeous dog lens! (sorry, I am a massive dog lover!)

Fujifilm said that the demand for this lens is overwhelming. I guess not all pre-orders will be fulfilled immediately and in fact I hear of some fellow X shooter getting delivery dates well into December. But at least the delivery started, and let’s hope it will proceed fast from now on.

IBIS Performance of X-S10, X-T4 and X-H1 on All Fujifilm X Mount lenses Compared

The Fujifilm X-S10 features a brand new IBIS unit.

  • it’s 30% smaller than then one on the Fujifilm X-T4
  • it’s half a stop less effective than the Fujifilm X-T4 IBIS (up to 6 stops instead of up to 6.5 stops)

You can see the IBIS unit of X-S10 side by side with the one of X-T4 and X-H1 in this article.

But which Fujinon X mount lens gets how much stabilization on the X-S10? Well, you can see the answer in the chart above.

Also, the IBIS data above gives you a side by side comparison between X-S10, X-T4 and X-H1.

To sum it quickly up:

  • 22 Fujinon lenses work best with X-T4
    XF10-24 MK I – XF10-24 MK II – XC15-45 – XC16-50 MK II – XF18-55 – XF14 – XF16/1.4 – XF16/2.8 – XF18 – XF23/1.4 – XF23/2 – XF27 – XF35/1.4 – XF35/2 – XC35/2 – XF50-140 – XF50/1 – XF50/2 – XF56 – XF56APD – XF60 – XF8-16
  • 7 Fujinon lenses work best with X-T4 and X-S10
    XF18-135 – XC50-230 – XF55-200 – XF100-400 – XF200 – XF90 – XF16-55
  • 2 Fujinon lenses work equally well on X-S10, X-T4 and X-H1
    XF80mmF2.8 – XF16-80

Remember: Fujifilm declared downsizing IBIS one of the top priorities. And so far it seems they are proceeding pretty fast.
