Fujifilm X-S10 First Look and Comparison with Sony A7C


Bigheadtaco posted his Fujifilm X-S10 first impressions and compares it to the Sony A7C, but also adds some comparison thoughts with the Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-H1 and X-T200.

Also, he shared an X-S10 shooting impression as well as a more detailed comparison of X-S10 vs Sony A7C for vlogging.

You’ll find the first video in summary format below, as well as all the videos.

  • a unique and unusual camera for the Fujifilm range
  • X-S10 should have been a replacement for X-T30
  • Fujifilm is experimenting with fully articulating screens
  • a screen like the X-T200 would have interfered with the vintage vibe of the X-T30, that’s why they gave the X-T30 a normal tilt screen
  • Fujifilm created the X-S10 will fully articulating screen
  • X-S10 is a hybrid of X-H1 (grip), X-T30 (“guts”) and X-T4 (screen)
  • Grip on X-H1 is still better than X-S10. Grip on X-S10 is a bit tighter
  • lots of stills photographers don’t want a selfie screen
  • if the X-S10 design fails, they will make X-T40 with tilt screen and drop selfie screen
  • Sony A7C and Fujifilm X-S10 are build to satisfy youtube vloggers, who want a reasonably small mirrorless camera with fully articulating screen and IBIS
  • Fujifilm X-S10 one of Fuji’s most functional but also most ugly cameras
  • Sony and Fuji are small, compact, and have new generation IBIS mechanism
  • Sony A7C got lots of negative press, but he thinks it’s a cool camera
  • Fujifilm X-S10 is also great for vlogging
  • X-S10 costs $999 and Sony A7C costs $1798
  • not huge weight difference
  • Sony A7C has better battery life, but also the battery is bigger and heavier
  • Fujifilm X-S10 EVF is bigger than Sony A7C
  • Video is similar, but Fuji X-S10 has 200 mbps, so video quality should be better. Sony A7C has no recording limits
  • Fujifilm has simpler and menu system
  • X-S10 has tally light, Sony not
  • both cameras will do really well for vlogging. Fujifilm costs less.
  • Sony A7C comes with FE 20mmF1.8 G kit lens kit lens. Would nice if Fujifilm would make a 15mm f/1.2 to match that shallow DOF [admin: close enough maybe, there is the stellar XF16mmF1.4 and soon also the XF18mmF1.4]
  • Would also be nice if Fujifilm would make at least a 14mm f/2 or at least f/1.4 for those who like to vlog and melt away the background
  • Sony A7C and Fujifilm X-S10 are both best choices for vloggers
  • would be nice if there would be also an X-T4 with IBIS
  • he loves most the Fujifilm X-H1 because it is very functional
