Fujifilm X10


The Fujifilm X10 is the company's first entry into what is becoming an increasingly crowded enthusiast compact camera segment. The proliferation of smartphone camera use - coming at the expense of traditional compact camera sales - sees manufacturers...

The Fujifilm X10 combines retro-styled attractiveness with excellent build quality, a fast zoom lens and all the external controls you could want in a compact camera. The camera's EXR sensor technology allows for impressive dynamic range and in...

Fujifilm X10


The Fujifilm X10 has one of the larger sensors in a compact, zooming camera, but doesn't control noise in low light as well as you'd expect. Its ergonomics make handling a bit awkward, but enthusiasts will be happy with the sharp images that this...

Sharp photos. Good video quality. Large optical viewfinder. Lots of physical controls. Fast, 4x zoom lens. Retro styling.

Somewhat awkward handling. So-so low-light performance. LCD could be sharper. Pricey.

Even though the 2/3-inch image sensor in the X10 is larger than those found in most point-and-shoots, it is smaller than that found in interchangeable lens cameras like the Nikon J1 ($649.95, 3.5 stars), Olympus E-PM1 ($499.99, 4 stars), and our...

Fujifilm X10

With a nice, fast lens, attractive retro design, and speedy performance, the Fujifilm FinePix X10 hits a lot of important high notes.

The camera has some image-quality-related weaknesses, not the least of which is that to get the best photos you have to shoot in auto at reduced resolutions.

There's a lot to like about the Fujifilm FinePix X10, but advanced shooters may be frustrated by the trade-offs for the best photos, especially since it's more expensive than its competitors.

Fujifilm X10 review


Fujifilm seems to believe cameras stopped getting better in about 1954, and it might be right: its high-end X-series takes its cues from the Leica cameras of decades ago, and the results have been...

Incredibly good-looking ; Excellent picture and video quality ; Fast focusing performance

Complicated to use effectively ; No interchangeable lenses ; Poor battery life

If you’re willing to put in the time to really get acquainted with the X10, the reward is huge

Fujifilm FinePix X10 Review


The Fujifilm Finepix X10 is an advanced compact camera that offers a retro design, 12 megapixel 2/3-inch EXR CMOS sensor, a 4x, 28-112mm, f/2.0-2.8 zoom lens with a manual zoom ring, optical viewfinder, 1080p movie recording, 7fps burst shooting and a...

The Fujifilm Finepix X10 follows in the footsteps of its bigger brother, the X100, by bringing a similar retro feel, quality build quality and photographer-friendly design to a wider audience. It may only be a humble compact camera at heart, but boy,...

Fujifilm X10


The Fujifilm X10 harks back to days gone by, offering a really solid, camera-like body littered with external controls. Unfortunately, an image quality issue on specular highlights tempers our enthusiasm for the time being.

Really solid body littered with external controls feels like a camera should; Very bright zoom lens; Clever EXR modes; Raw support

White orb problem; EV dial difficult to turn; Below average battery life; Shallow buffers; Occasional demosaicing errors

Fujifilm X-10 Review


The Fujifilm X-10 packs the finest Fujifilm DNA into a fine full-metal Rangefinder-like body. It's got a 12-megapixel 2/3-inch EXR-CMOS sensor that maximizes dynamic range and color depth along with a 28-112mm Fujinon lens with a maximum aperture of...

Generously sized sensor, f/2.0-2.8 fast lens is great for shooting in low light, the viewfinder is a nice touch for shooting, Support for RAW format

Focusing is a little shaky at variable focal lengths, Black levels in video are higher than normal, leading to loss of detail, The unpocketable Rangefinder design might not be for everyone

the fun. The X10 has a cool retro design, solid build quality, a large optical viewfinder, and a ton of manual controls. It's also the little brother to the FinePix X100 that I (generally) enjoyed using last year

Good photo quality when using dynamic range correction ; High grade, professional quality body with rangefinder-style design and manual zoom ring ; Fast, high quality F2.0-2.8, 28 - 112 mm lens ; Sensor-shift image stabilization ; 2.8" LCD is fluid,...

Strong highlight clipping (use the DR correction to reduce, though noise will increase) ; Unusual white disc/orb problem makes photos look awkward (to say the least) ; Some "jaggies" in photos ; EXR sensor's most useful features require drop in...

Overall, the Fujifilm X10 is an intriguing, fun-to-use camera with a fairly long list of cons. Is it a camera I enjoyed using? Yes, quite a bit. Would I buy it? Probably not, though that's due more to the highlight clipping than the white disc issue....

Fujifilm X10 Review: Top of the Point-and-Shoot Heap


Ever since it was announced back in August, the Fujifilm X10 has been on every photographer's radar. Upon first glance, the camera woos the vintage crowd with architecture that rivals an old Yashika film SLR. On the inside, the X10…
