Fujifilm X-T10 Features and Specifications

From the outside look, this camera looks similar in many ways to its bigger counterpart, the X-T1, as both are compact and robust-looking. Yet, while both appear to be inspired from the classic design, the X-T10 looks like a toned-down version of X-T1.

With an outstanding hardware, this camera’s photo-capturing power is a match, if not superior, to its heavier DLSR counterparts.

Designed not to withstand bad weathers (rains or storms), the Fujifilm X-T10 is sadly not weather-proof; yet are also its competitors in the market like the Sony A6000, Panasonic G7, and Olympus OMD-EM10. This makes the camera ideal only to carry during dry weather which can also be restricting of you not going places where there are waters.

Is it easy to use?

This camera works fast and is definitely easy to use and navigate. In those cases that you have to ask someone to take a photo of you while traveling, all you need is to select the auto mode and it will produce a sharp and well exposed souvenir photo for you.
