I’d like to thanks you guys for the help, and share two of the comparisons you made down below.
We can see, that the X-T30 is still slightly smaller. But not that much, actually, and consider that the X-S10 has also the IBIS unit build into it.
Now, we know the X-T10, X-T20 and X-T30 were absolute best sellers for Fujifilm. But I have the feeling that the X-S10 could do even better, as it features IBIS as well as a nice deep grip, features that many users want and so far could not find in a sub-1,000 Fuji X series camera.
The Fujifilm X-S10 has a terrific potential. Let’s hope it will turn out to be winner for Fujifilm.
Everything will be official on October 15. And everything about the X-S10 will be found on FujiRumors and the big live blogging we are going to have. Feel free to join us. :)
Here is another rumor, exclusive for our wonderfully vivid and lively FujiRumors community.
I was chatting yesterday late at night with one of our sources. It was a very interesting talk, that went far beyond the X-S10 rumors.
Anyway… I told to the source, that me and many other mere mortal Fujifilm shooters following this blog, would be very curious to know how big the upcoming Fujifilm X-S10 is compared to the Fujifilm X-T4.
The source promised it can do something for us, to give us a clear idea about it, and just now I have received this sketch, where the red shape represents the Fujifilm X-S10 and the blue shape represents the Fujifilm X-T4.
And yes, of course the red shape is also an accurate representation of the Fujifilm X-S10. The viewfinder, the dials, the dimensions.
As you can see, Fujifilm managed to squeeze IBIS in a sensibly smaller body compared to the X-T4.
The Fujifilm X-S10 will be announced on October 15. As usual, there will be a non stop live blogging here on FujiRumors.
According to a new anonymous source (that uses a nickname, thanks for that), Fujifilm is going to soon announce a new lens roadmap.
TO THE SOURCE: if you want, we can have a more direct and confidential talk via email (email@example.com). Would be great if we could. Otherwise no problem, thanks a lot already for the help today and for using a nickname, which helps me a lot already.
When you shoot full AUTO, the camera records only JPEG files.
Some say this makes sense, as the AUTO mode is supposed to make it all for you and simplify your life.
And although I never shoot AUTO on my X-E3, it happens sometimes that I handle the camera to a friend or relative (or even to one of my little students). And since they are not familiar with photography, the AUTO switch comes in very handy.
The problem: it will write only JPEG files on the SD card. But even if it’s not me taking the pictures, it’s still my camera and my SD-Card, and I want always both, RAW and JPEG on my SD-card, as you never know, maybe there is some nice image there that could need a little tweak.
Also, here is another example a FR-reader made, and that shows how useful RAW capability in Full AUTO would be.
The FR-reader did set up the camera for long exposures, all full manual, and suddenly a beautiful bird came and rested shortly on a stone nearby. Without messing around with the settings, the FR-reader quickly switched the camera to AUTO and grabbed a picture of the bird before it flew away. And while in this case the Auto mode allowed him to capture the decisive moment, he would have loved to have the RAW file of that image too.
I strongly hope other Fujifilm cameras having the AUTO capabilities will get the AUTO-RAW capability via firmware update in near future. It would make the AUTO mode more useful for me.
